Over the past year, I have had the pleasure to photograph all the milestones for a sweet little boy named Isaac. From maternity to newborn all the way through the first year. To put in plainly, his family is awesome. So when I was asked to photograph his grandma & grandpa and the car that they built, of course I was excited. And once I met them, I realize just where Isaac’s family’s “awesomeness” derived from. Tom and Mary are a beautiful couple and it was so endearing to watch the love between them. I never would have guessed, if I didn’t already know, that these two were “old enough” to be grandparents. Of course, now that I met Mary, I can certainly tell where her two daughters natural beauty comes from! Wow what a beautiful woman! And Tom, well, he was just so adorable! There were times that it felt like I was photographing an engagement session, new, young love. I can only hope that my own marriage and love can be so strong and evident after 30 years of marriage!
I am always in awe over the talents of others, especially when it comes to a subject that I know very little about. To me, building a car falls into that category! This car was just as awesome and beautiful as the people that built it. But I guess that is what happens from love, everything associated with and from it becomes beautiful.
