You cannot catch a child’s spirit by running after it.

You must stand still and for love it will soon itself return.

Dear Kimberly,

I’m just editing our tea-party and lollypop session. I’m sorry but I can’t crop you out of the photos. I want you to see how you shine as a mother. The love and affection between you and your sweetheart makes my heart sing. I’m getting all teary eyed just looking at them… you are a dazzling mother.

These last couple days have really made me look at who I am as an artist. What I’ve known all along, but never had the courage to fully embrace, is that real moments are the most magical of all. Life, with rain and sickness, is beautiful. Kennedy is gorgeous even when she doesn’t feel good. Life doesn’t have to be perfect to be wonderful.

You have reminded me to cherish it all.

I am and always will be, over-the-moon honored that you traveled all that way to spend time with me. You and Trey are fantastic parents. Thank you for sharing your life and your sweet angel with me.

Love, Katherine
