I met Ashley through her sister, Eryn, who is a wonderful friend of mine. I even flew out to Detroit last year to photograph Ashley’s family! That trip was actually a pivotal moment in my life that lead me to working here at Allebach Photography, so her presence in my life will always be precious to me.
When we launched the Renaissance of Mom, I was ecstatic Ashley responded.
“I have always been the little big sister. The little sister that tried to plan my big sister’s life because obviously I knew better. When she and her husband had a baby, that is where our roles and relationship changed.”
“My sister Eryn made pregnancy make sense. We bonded and got closer than ever and she became the big sister. She became who I leaned on, who I trusted when the stress got to me, who I looked to, to help make things less confusing.
“We are closer and stronger now than ever and want our boys to feel the same. Our sons, upon their first meeting and thereafter, grab hands and light up when they see each other. They have a bond we want to foster until the day we can’t anymore and I want to cherish all moments where they are together.”
Photographing Ashley and Eryn with their boys was one of the most beautiful and emotional sessions for me. I love them both dearly, they are like family to me, but seeing their bond and the love Bash and Addy have for each other is an experience I know they will cherish for a lifetime. Being a part of this is certainly something I will cherish.
