This past weekend, I went along with husband and wife couple Rebecca and Jon to document a ‘farewell for now.’ Jon was accepted to medical school in Grenada (congrats!), and I went along to New York City (where his plane was leaving from) with Rebecca to see him off, and to capture with my lens, a few of their last moments together in the US for the next several months. A mix of sadness and hope for the future was in the air, but more than that, was love. It was a special honor to document such a tender time, and I hope these pictures can share a little bit of that love.
Families with young children have a certain glow about them. Besides their amazing ability to turn fatigue into humor, they radiate a special kind of happiness that I find to be very contagious. Katie and Rory Jones welcomed their first child Conrad into the world in August 2011, and this holiday season, I was super lucky to take Conrad’s first set of pictures. He is such a cutie, and what a trooper! We worked with him through various costume changes and poses for almost three hours (we gave him bottle time and nap breaks too of course!). Great job Katie with your creative inspiration, and many thanks to my wife Sarah for being the great comedian who made Conrad laugh so much.
