Best wishes Brett and Necia. Such a beautiful couple! May your future be filled with all the love and happiness you could possibly handle. xo
9/11/11 - It is sometimes so hard to believe that it has been ten years since that horrible morning. I remember in such vivid detail the events of that day and the array of emotions that passed through me. It is a struggle to hold emotions in check as I think of all the people who have lost loved ones. It is impossible not to think of all the missed memories and all the should have beens.
I spent the morning of the 10 year anniversary in a city much larger than my own and I was surprised at how seemingly subtle the small tributes and hints of remembrance were. Still, if you kept your eyes open, they were there to be found. Scattered about were little tributes showing appreciation for freedom, lives lost, and patriotism gained.
It is my goal to always remember and to help my children never forget... not only the events of 9/11 but the importance of the values and freedom that were under attack.
Above, San Francisco 9/11/11. Below, my own personal tribute/reminder.
Yes I've been pretty MIA in the blogging world lately, figured it's about time I start sharing some images again. So for the whole two of you that are likely still following this blog... I've started digging through the archives (a real chore due to my awesomely mad organizational skills) and decided to start updating with winter. A novel idea right?! I know, I know, don't start the snowball throwing all at once.
A quick afterthought... Jordan had mentioned while taking these pictures that the bigger the glasses the bigger the smarts. I think he may be onto something!
... stays together.
Thank you Jane for "getting it." For allowing me to just be me behind the camera. For understanding what it is that I do best. For not asking for the perfect everybody looking at the camera smiling shot. For allowing me to capture your family the way that I love to capture families... focusing on the relationship and feelings rather than perfect smiles. For getting my "blur." I hope you love your session as much as I do.
