S Family Front Porch Session

Huge smiles were going all around, but I doubt it was because I was there to take their photos. As I came up to the house to get started, I was a few questions and found out that they were headed on a vacation the next day, so I am sure that was the reason for all the smiles since they were getting everything ready that evening to head out. Honestly, a little get away to see family is a much needed break from the quarantining that we have all had to do these last several months. As I took each photo, I was smiling behind the camera thinking of excited I was for them to be getting away and having an upcoming adventure.

The greatest things about taking photos and getting to know the families that I get to meet, is feeling the joy and happiness that they feel when they tell me more about themselves, the things that they are doing and of course, watching them smile and laugh on the other side of the lens.

My hope is that the family had fun on their vacation and that they were able to make lasting memories.

2020 Catch up!

Woah! What a year so far! 2020 has come in with a massive blow and we are only half way through it. 3 months into the new year we were hit with this global pandemic that we are still currently living through, which altered the way we work and live. Our new normal becoming WFH(work from home), virtual learning, social distancing, quarantine mode, face masks and re-teaching of personal hygiene(“wash your hands!”). For some it’s been quite the challenge, while for others they embraced the slow down of life and turned that negative, right into a positive, in that sense. We gave props where props where due…Thank you to all the healthcare workers, teachers, truck drivers and everyone keeping things moving as smoothly as possible.

We are now into August and it’s been 5 months living through this global pandemic. With school just around the corner for the kids and no solidified plan yet in site to start. Who would have thought we’d ever be living through something like this?! All we can do is document these unprecedented times, be respectful of others, stay safe, enjoy and live life the best we can.

Here’s to a better year and years ahead of us.
