I begin with giving upmost thanks to one of my “newest” friends that I have made this past year. Tasra Dawson, an amazing photographer from Atlanta. She captured these images of Ashley and I while Ron Dawson, her husband was doing the filming for Pictage. Tasra has given me something so precious to my heart. Photos. Photos of a time in my life. With Ashley. I cannot tell you all how many times I have just sat there and looked at the album with all of these images. I could even close my eyes and feel that moment. That moment of laughter as Ashley and I had never done anything like it. That moment of sadness as I looked into her eyes and could see how hard it was to comprehend this detour. Or that moment when I held her hand or let her hold onto me so that she would not lose her balance and fall. Each photo means something. It has a story. An emotion. Each photo has a piece of Ashley, me and Tasra. I say Tasra, because I do believe that in each photo that we, as photographers leave a piece of us in it. Our eye, our perspective, our view of that moment.
Again, Tasra. Thank you.
