I love love.
I love that I was also able to capture the love between these two.
Ms. M is the other half of the amazing preschool duo that turned our lives around. Photographing them was my way of saying “Thanx!” Ms. M opted for some pre-wedding, engagement portraits of the love of her life and their four legged Bobo lovebug.
Right after Christmas I got a chance to photograph G and her boys again. I only had one request: it had to be in a specific spot I’ve been trying to find a reason to re-visit.
I get really excited when a spot I photograph in frequently shows me a whole new world and a new perspective. It gets me excited and re-invigorated to go there again.
Over Thanksgiving my kids introduced me to Pokemon Go, and as it so happens the start of Elevator Trail is a Pokestop. In one of our visits and Pokemon collections I looked up and saw a family of coniferous trees. While I’ve come to Elevator Trail many times, this was the first I saw them. But seeing the light come through them just made me giddy. I instantly had an image in my mind I wanted to create here (involving some Photoshop), and I cajoled G in helping me make it happen. While I am still working out my Photoshop kinks, here’s some mom & kid family portraits 🙂
There are some teachers in your life that leave a mark. J is one of those people for me, and my family had the privilege of having her and her teacher-partner M (who you’ll see in a few weeks) in the same year of our little one’s last year of pre-school. Words could really not express sufficiently the level of admiration and appreciation I have for these two, and the best I could offer them was pictures capturing the love of their own families.
