I would like to introduce you all to Lee, Laura Ashley, and Holland Grace. They are our small group leaders and very dear friends of ours, and we are going to miss them greatly! You see, Lee and Laura Ashley have answered the call to international missions. This summer they will give away most of their belongings and move to an amazing place called London, with only suitcases in hand, to pour their lives into the work of Christ. They will be working with immigrants and immersing themselves in another language that they will need to learn to be fully equipped to minister to these immigrants who find themselves in a new country.
When Laura Ashley asked me to do a session with their sweet family, I was so excited. She and I both knew we wanted the photos to be super special, since they would be their last ones before they move. So in lieu of going to London, Laura Ashley had the great idea of having a tea party! I was in love the second she told me her ideas. We did the session all over the gorgeous campus of Southeastern Seminary where God birthed in them a heart for missions. We went inside Binkley Chapel, stopped at the beautiful fountain Lee proposed to Laura Ashley at, and ended with a fun tea party…hats and all! The sweet little dress, sweater, and petticoat Holland Grace is wearing were all Laura Ashley’s when she was a little girl, which I think is absolutely precious and so special! We adore this beautiful family, and we will always cherish their friendship in our lives. Please pray for the Harpers as they give of their lives to impact God’s Kingdom.
