A the end of October I received a sweet email from an old friend, Karen. Karen and I had grown up together and while we didn't stay in touch, through the wonders of Facebook we kept up to date on each others lives. First there was her beautiful wedding in Key West and then the arrival of a darling baby boy. It's really beautiful to watch as old friends build a life of their own, and I was so happy to see as Karen filled her's with people she loved.
Back to this fall, Karen sent me a long email detailing some of the many hurdles her family of three has been through the past year or so. Struggles that no family should have to face and yet they tackle each hurdle as a team, determined to fight through it all. And because they have been through so much, Karen wanted to document their family unit and capture the love that they share together, just in time for the Holidays. I was honored that she asked me to photograph her beautiful family, for a session that would mean so much.
On a cold (read : COLD!!!) and blustery afternoon we met at Endicott Park for some Holiday cheer and a few portraits just for Mom and Dad. It was an amazing time and even though it was so incredibly cold, I'm delighted with how these images turned out!! Karen thank you so much for asking me to document your beautiful family, I hope these images adequately capture the love you share for each other. Enjoy!!
