I am not sure how I became so fortunate, but in January of 2010, I was invited to join a photography forum. And not just any forum – a SECRET one!
The forum consisted of 120 ladies from all around the world. Most of them are in the United States, but I’m pretty sure that we have almost every continent covered. These ladies have been my best friends for the last six years. They have laughed with me, cried with me, taught me about photography, about business, about LIFE. We have supported each other through some of the most difficult times in a woman’s life, and through some of the most joyous. I LOVE them like sisters!
This year, a few of us have decided to put together a monthly post called Life Stories.
For most of them, it involves the stories of their everyday lives with their children. Being one of the (ahum) Senior members, all of my children have left the house, so my life stories will sometimes involve my client’s big events.
This month, I bring to you Allie & Blake. I was fortunate to be able to photograph Allie during her senior year of high school. I took photographs of her right before she left for an 18 month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint to the Ukraine. And now….I am soooooooo excited to be involved in her life once again, this time as her wedding photographer.
It’s true that I only select a very small number of wedding a year. I jokingly say that I pick women who want to BE married, not GET married. The later is all about the dress, and the cake, and the party. The former is all about the relationship, the connection, really, they are about starting an eternal family.
Allie wanted candid shots of them having fun. Yes, we got the traditional “look at the camera and smile” photos, but THIS is a slice of their life…part of their Life Story!
So…. do you want to see the rest of the life stories this month? Check them out here:
