Sending my love and prayers to all who knew and loved this great man.
Rest in Peace.
From an earlier post:
There are times when I feel so lucky to be doing what I do, and right now is one of those times.
Last month Sarah (the bride from my latest wedding) called me up to tell me her Grandfather who is terminally ill would not be able to attend the wedding, so she asked me if I could go to him and capture some special moments with her Daughter and Grandfather . Sarah prepped me before I arrived about the special relationship between Grandad (as everyone calls him) and Chaeli.
When I saw Chaeli run down the stairs Grandad’s face was beaming and everything else appeared forgotten for this moment in time. The love between these two was evident in every shot taken. Honestly, I looked at them through tears the first few times. I felt so honored to capture this beautiful girl spending time entertaining her handsome Grandad, and being able to walk away with special memories frozen in time for their family.
Soon after I arrived Chaeli’s Grandmother told me Sarah had picked out all of Chaeli’s outfits, however Chaeli had plans of her own Chaeli, loves loves loves Indian Jones, and informed me her name for the day was Indiana Jooney, and she was going too put together her best mismatched outfits. Indiana Jooney’s outfits never looked so fabulous as they did on this special day!
P.S. Don’t forget to turn your sound on!!
