Getting to spend time with the Fitzkimbles for their Gettysburg PA family session was one of the best ways I could think of to spend my Saturday evening! I met these two at roller derby practice, and I knew immediately that we were going to hit it off. Both Megan and Greg are such genuine, nice people. I was honored when Megan asked me to photograph their family!
Life has taken me an a very busy direction lately. I haven’t been able to commit my time to roller derby unfortunately. So, it was great catching up with these two! We explored a few different areas of the Gettysburg Battlefields. Starting at Devil’s Den we explored the area. Then we ended our session at the amazing Sunrise Soap Company! We browsed the store checking out the bath bombs and smelling everything they had to offer!
As we walked, and talked, and I photographed, it was so interesting getting to learn more about these guys and their life story. One thing that we have somewhat in common is the presence of addiction in our lives. I have family members who have struggled with this in the past, while Megan and Greg have also struggled. Megan even has her own YouTube channel called “Not Your Mother’s Recovery” which focuses on trying to debunk some of the misconceptions and share her personal experiences. Check her channel out here!
