“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
I’m writing this blog before I’ve even begun processing any of the images or sneaks from this session. I know, it’s a bit unconventional, but there is so much joy coming from the images on my second screen and as I go through them, I feel compelled to write. The only title I could think of to do this post justice is ‘love’.
I loved this day. I didn’t expect that it would turn out the way it did, but because I was asked to photograph this family and event by someone that is so close to my heart, I don’t know why I am surprised of the way the day just fell into place.
When I’m asked to photograph families, I feel so blessed. I get to see them for who and what they are. For how they respond and interact with each other. I get to laugh and celebrate with them; to hear their inside jokes and stories. This family had so many, and my cheeks hurt from laughing with them. And as I spent the afternoon waiting for the next part of the photo shoot to start, I almost felt as if I were apart of their family.
So, with that said, I’mso happy to share a few photos of these wonderful people. I swear you can feel their happiness from the smiles in these photos. I love families.
This wonderful couple celebrated their 50th anniversary on Monday. I wish them many more years of love and happiness together!
