“I asked her what she planned to do with her life
& she said she was way beyond that point already.
I’m just happy I remember to be there when it happens, she said.
— life plan, the storypeople
What a blessing it was to be invited to photograph four generations of this family. J. turned 99 this year…and her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren gathered for a photo shoot. She has led such an incredible life and still has stories to tell. She is surrounded by laughter and love…and I was honored to be able to capture a glimpse of it.
To the M. family — thank you for having me, for accommodating my crazy requests, for just being you despite a camera nearby, and for sharing a wonderful day with me. Enjoy this sneak preview–your gallery is coming soon.
captured just as i left her — that’s a photo of her late husband on the dresser. easily my favorite of the day.
mama + daughter – a beautiful and enduring relationship.
this one just had to be in color for me…
this litte man adored his auntie.
we got to play at the beach for a bit..he hammed it up for me.
father+son…these two loved to engage each other. the little man is insatiably curious (thankfully, dad has lots of answers!)
the youngest — still small enough to enjoy a ride on dad’s shoulders…these two together always bring smiles.
