World Traveling Photographer

I always tell my clients "Words can describe the past but a photo can thrust you into the moment."  As the years pass I find these word not only true but also very comforting.

Like to share a personal story with you if you don't mind.

Years ago I had a dear  friend who was diagnosed with cancer.  After many months of treatment she was given a clean bill of health. Well she proceeded to call wanting to celebrate her victory with a toast and photo shoot. Oh what a wonderful time we had. She looked radiant and so full of life. Unfortunately about 6  months later the cancer came back and we lost her.  

It was about a year later that  I received a phone call from her daughter. She was interested in seeing if I had any photos of her mother. To my surprise she was not aware of the last photo shoot we had done. So I made an appointment  for the following week to show her the images.I can truly tell you that I can still see myself walking up the walkway to her front door on the day we were to meet. I can even see those eyes as soon as the door opened. They were the same eyes as Jennette's.

I hate it when I run out of space. Please contact me and I promise to tell you the rest of the story and  it will bring a tear to your eyes.
