I have had the honor of knowing the Perry family my entire life. In fact, they are distant cousins of mine. They are some of the kindest, most honest people and Helen, Christine, and Emily bring the word "selfless" to a level beyond that which I have ever witnessed. Not only are these three generations of women living under one roof, they have all - at one point or another - put their lives on complete hold for one another. Emily dropped absolutely everything to be there for Chris as she kicked breast cancer's butt, Chris has been there every step of the way for Emily to help her raise her beautiful son Owen, and Helen has been there for them both.
Helen lost her husband and best friend last year and has slowly started to succumb to Alzheimer's - and in true Perry fashion, both Emily and Chris have dedicated their lives to being her primary caretaker for as long as they can. Though this journey is difficult for all of them, it has undoubtedly created the most wonderful and unique opportunity to share their lives. The love in that house is tangible and I had thought that there would be no better way to celebrate and honor that love than to do a lifestyle session to capture a 'day in the life' at the Perry homestead. Here are just a few images from their lifestyle session.
