Ashleigh is a professional photographer and arranged a surprise photo shoot for her parents, complete with touching personal touches, including a framed wedding invitation from her parents’ big day — one of the only surviving mementos from their wedding.
Ashleigh picked out two gowns for her mom and reached out to a florist and a makeup artist. She kept it all a surprise until the day before the shoot.
“I told my parents that I needed them on Saturday, June 17. ... My mom kept asking me questions, but I would not tell her anything. I got great joy from her trying to figure it out,” Ashleigh told the Washingtonian.
