As the year comes to a close – I remind myself that I didn’t choose to be a photographer (or a musician for that matter) – I was drawn to it. And you might feel the same about what you do in life. At least, I hope that you do. Sometimes the moments of our lives rush by us so fast and it’s all that we can do to just “live in the moment” . Our memories blur and soon, begin to fade away. But a photograph waits patiently, it lets us catch up and see, hold, experience and enjoy all of those precious moments that we might otherwise have missed. So take a photograph of all the moments in your life. The small events, the major events and even the sad ones.
For years I was a bit embarrassed and hid the fact that I loved looking into my client’s eyes and seeing what I consider, the truth. It wasn’t until I saw this quote from Annie Leibovitz that I realized that I wasn’t alone … “A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”
So as this year comes to a close – I thank God for how lucky I am to be a photographer.
Two weddings, a winery visit and three wedding receptions – that’s the way you do it when you’re my Daughter. And that’s the way it should be. May 2013 we all headed out to Los Angeles . First there was the traditional Thai wedding at the Wat Thai temple in Los Angeles
Then the reception with lots of traditional Thai food and lots of family
The next day we headed to Malibu for a winery visit and some tasting at at Saddle Rock Ranch. What a nice relaxing day with family and friends
The next day; Sunday we were off again to Malibu for my Daughter’s “western” ( no not country and western … HA!) wedding day. On top of a mountain … overlooking a winery. Yea, it was majestic to say the least!
Now fast forward to December … My Daughter … Christine and my Son-In-Law Rich, came home for a special reception at Sky Restaurant in Norwood MA. Finally the subject of this post .. you are thinking! And you’re right!
Family and family friends all came out for the east coast celebration of my Daughter’s wedding.
Letting go of my fav redhead is not easy .. but I’m working on it.
Two weddings, a winery visit and three wedding receptions. That’s the way you do it !
Of all the seasons, Winter is the hardest to for me to explain – it’s like the world is sleeping, getting some needed rest and we need to just let it alone for a little while. And here in New England … it’s friggin’ cold! and blurry. That’s the way it feels to me – short days too. Springtime … COME!!
