It was a cold morning in Georgia and the winds were stronger than I had ever remembered. I considered calling the Tangs before their session, but I knew this was our only day to capture the family photographs she had waited so patiently for. Before pulling into their driveway, not only did I specifically pray for the winds to calm down, I text Matthew asking him to please pray as well.
As much as I wanted to give the Tangs the photos they desired, I could feel the wind growing stronger and temperatures dropping even more. However, shortly after Anjolie started to cry and Christine and I began to discuss the possibility of having to cancel their long-awaited session, I noticed something…
The wind drastically calmed down.
Hair was no longer being blown out-of-control.
Instead of frigid winds, the gorgeous sun started to peek out from behind the clouds.
The time flew by as we captured LOTS and LOTS fun, Tang memories!
On a side note, although I normally LOVE to share personal stories on my blog, doubt and insecurity crept into this story and I had decided to simply post these images without sharing the answered prayer. My heart changed when I woke-up and read an early-morning text from Matthew’s dad with this ‘random‘ verse, Job 37:5-7:
“God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways;
he does great things beyond our understanding.
He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth,’
and to the rain shower, ‘Be a mighty downpour.’
So that everyone he has made may know his work,
he stops all people from their labor.”
As always, THANK YOU, Sean & Christine, for allowing me to photograph your family and watch your super-special and beautiful girls grow-up!
