Their wedding is happening today and this makes me one happy photographer.
What’s not to love about those costumes, right? Oh you beautiful dancers, you. Forget the hours of practice it takes to nail a performance. I’m all about the photogenic clothes. And, in this case, my photogenic niece, as well.
After my niece’s summer dance recital, I asked her to come over so that I could play with my camera a bit and photograph her just for the glorious fun of it.
The glorious fun of it… hmmm…
Maybe then, it wouldn’t just be the dancers that get to dance during their shoot. Maybe we all would.
He woke up from a short nap to find me, a complete stranger, staring at him.
And yet it was his eyes that pierced into my soul.
He knows he’s special and he should.
Yes, I wish things were fair.
Some people don’t get the opportunity to leave behind a tiny piece of hopeful magic before they leave this Earth. Some people don’t get to see those tiny eyes pierce into their soul.
But you did.
No, it’s not the way you planned and I wish it were different; as I’m absolutely sure those who love you do in ways that are deep and true.
But the gift of a legacy… your legacy… he beams with beauty and adventure. He will feel close to you all the days of his life and I hope to visit him again someday soon because it was my honor.
