It was such a joy to photograph something so special. I talk all the time about how I want to be the capturer of special, unforgettable things. To some, while this event may not have been a big deal (compared to say, a wedding or birth) to them, it was the world. This family had not seen their elders in 8 years. To their daughter, it was 8 years without her parents. To their granddaughter, it was also 8 years. To the three babes that played on the playground near where we were photographing, it was the first time they met their great-grandparents. Four generations! That's pretty special. I don't care who ya are.....that's special. I knew it from the moment I got that email in my inbox from their granddaughter who arranged it as a surprise. EEEEEE!!! <3 My heart melted!
On another less important note, it was torrential days before and on the day of this shoot. Can you believe it? The weather cleared up just long enough for us to have a family shoot, and then the sky proceeded to fall out. Boy, was it windy! But beautiful and unforgettable. Just unforgettable. <3
