I have a tear in my eye as I finish up my now two years old niece’s birthday slideshow. Memories are important. The memories of our families, our smiles, and our personalities should be valued. We need to photograph your family the way they are today. We need to capture their wildness and kindness, honesty and bright eyes, quirkiness and youth. Whether it is big smiles or sleepy eyes. Today will soon be the past, but can always be revisited through an image.
My mother and father. Together still.
There were a handful of girls that made high school magical for me and Mayra was one of those girls. Well, we are all very graduated from high school (and college) and all grown up with exciting lives to lead. Mayra fell in love with Jess and I couldn’t be happier for their future together. Not only are they radiantly beautiful on the outside, their kindness, intelligence, and enthusiasm for life shines from the inside. I wish them all the best.
(And you better believe I’m going to photograph the crap outta their wedding!)
