They say that Dad is a son’s first hero and a daughter’s first love. In my case, that’s certainly true.
This is one of my favorite photos of me and my Pops. It’s showing it’s age – puffy sleeves and all! – but I cherish it, as it’s one of the few good, professional photos I have with my Father.
“A Celebration of Motherhood”
There are so many mom-centric moments in our lives – I’m very lucky to be part of so many of the happy ones, including my own!
Other than a few selfies, I don’t have photos that I’ve taken with me and my Mom together. But, this series of me and each of my brothers with my Mom, taken for her 70th birthday celebration by good friend Nick Wrzesinski, is really special to me. I’m so glad that I hired fellow photographer friends to capture the family – it made things so much more enjoyable and I got to be in the photographs, too! When was the last time you, as an adult, had professional photographs taken with your parents, kids, grandchildren, family? Do it now! You won’t regret it!
“It’s a (my) family affair”
Full disclosure: I know the groom-to-be here very well. In fact, I’ve known him his whole life…he’s my youngest brother. And he’s getting married!!! I promised myself I wasn’t going to cry, but I’m tearing up just typing those words. I am so full of love and happiness and excitement for Jason and his fiancée Shelley that I could just BUST!
We were lucky enough to sneak in a mini engagement session a few weeks ago, on a blustery, miserable, rainy Sunday afternoon – perfect! An engagement session was something I really wanted to do with them, have a little fun, make some photos of them that, hopefully, they will enjoy for years to come (as I’m writing this, they haven’t seen the images yet, so I’m crossing my fingers that they find something in here they like…!). It’s a gift that, as a photographer, I never, ever get tired of giving. And it’s even more special when it’s for family.
