Hello clients, friends, family and followers. These past 2 months have been a crazy filled 2 months with weddings, portraits and most importantly my family. I have gotten a few emails in regards to the status of client’s photos and I have replied but wanted to update everyone else on what has been going on. Typically I do not get behind on work and the hard headed person I am, I would never admit it. But this one time I am behind by 3 weeks and the reason is I have to be there for my family during an extremely difficult time. Thank you for your understanding and patience while I get caught up. With my changing schedule and with the wedding season beginning to slow down I will have more time to get caught up. All June and July session will be completed within the next few weeks and will be posted online for your viewing.
As you know, I am an active member of Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep and if you know anything about the organization you know it is not the easiest thing to photograph. Let me tell you that it is not any easier when you have to photograph your own family member for NILMDTS.
My nephew/godson is 6 months young and has gone through 18 brain surgeries since birth and recently has taken a turn that we all did not want to happen. He is now in Hospice care. I was called upon to go and photograph my brother in law and sister in law this past weekend with their son and his twin brother and big sister. This was the hardest thing I ever had to do as every click of the shutter was a moment that will live with me forever. As sad as this time is, I enjoyed our session because I felt as if my nephew and I bonded and really connected.
I am a strong believer of things happen for a reason and that everyone is here to teach someone a lesson. What I have learned from my situation is to appreciate the little details in life and to take the time to enjoy every day. A good day or a bad day, it does not matter the kind of day. What matters is how you react to the day and how you make the most of it.
Owen, I will miss you and love you always! Every picture I take, every moment I capture and every person I capture smiling will be inspired from you. Thank you little buddy, you will always be with me…
Here are a few pictures from our session this past weekend. Thanks for looking.
