Duncan’s Aunt and Uncle were visiting him from Los Angeles. So nice to give them a great portrait as well.

Buckhead Family Portrait

 

On Sunday, I had a chance to see Bailey and Banks again, and meet their new sister, Wren. What an adorable family. We took advantage of the cooler weather and cloudy skies, yes, cloudy skies are actually great for portraits! Look at that great lighting on everyone’s faces. Thanks for spending the afternoon with me!

Jen & Dan Say I Do

 

On October 8, 2017, I had the chance to photograph my cousin Jen’s wedding. I was so touched when she asked me to photograph the day she would marry Dan, but I admit I had some hesitation about saying yes. Afterall, our large family doesn’t get the chance to be together very often. Between, Massachusetts, Washington, Oregon, California, Georgia, Maryland and Tennessee, we are literally spread out all over the country. And I wanted to party and spend time with everyone. But I am SO happy I said yes. It was so meaningful for me to have this honor. These pictures are not only the first for their new family, but they will become part of our extended family’s heirloom of pictures that we will cherish for generations to come.

Jen and Dan’s relationship started with a crush when they were teenagers. Through Bar Mitzvah dances, distance, other relationships, and finally living in the same city, they found love. Under Aunt Audrey’s hand-made chuppah, they said their vows to each other and, I believe, received a blessing from her. Even though she wasn’t physically there with us that day, I could hear her voice in my head saying how beautiful it was and how grateful she was to have had a part in them finding each other.

Jen and Dan, thank you for trusting me and Anne to capture your day. Enjoy this sneak peek of your pictures. In the words of my brother on our wedding day, I hope that your wedding day is the day you find you loved each other the least. Love you both!

Picture of the Day: The Beauty All Around Us

 

This has been an especially difficult week as I lost someone very close to me unexpectedly on Sunday. After a very difficult year for me personally, this has been both more difficult and also reminded me of perspective. I often post about the importance of stopping, taking time with our families away from all the distractions of everyday life to get pictures. To capture those moments because even though our days are filled with “I have to do this” or “I have to go there,” there will be a day when we won’t have any new moments to share with loved ones. In moments like this, when the pain is raw, it’s those pictures and my memories that give me breath, light, perspective and hopefully, healing.

Hug your family a little tighter today. Ask your relatives the questions you’ve been putting off. Take lots of pictures. And breathe.

And now onto the pictures of the day…

I’ve been photographing the Delaneys longer than any other client. And while Sope Creek is in their neighborhood, this is the first time in our 9+ years together that we ventured to this beautiful place. The fall colors were unreal and it felt so nourishing to be on the water. The kids (and adults!) loved it and it’s clear to see from the pictures. Exploring the beauty all around us is worthy of a few moments of our time.
