My heart smiles to see these two! I met her when she was a little baby and had the honor of photographing their mom when she was pregnant with him. I have worked and played with them many times and we have created the most beautiful works of art throughout their lives.
It is funny, I was out to dinner with my fiance at a local restaurant with a few sports TV’s around us. I look up and on the big screen above my head was a young woman who I photographed as a newborn, now an Olympian.
I am not old, I have just spent my entire professional career as a photographer. It has been such an honor to be the storyteller in so many beautiful lives. I now see some of my kids’s kids in front of my lens and just wonder where the time has went.
I know what these portraits and memories mean to me… I can only imagine what they mean to their families. Thank you my friends.
