A Little Angel

Jessica… all those years of battling cancer are over now. Your pain and suffering the treatments, the long hospital stays, and the days of not knowing are all over.

Even though I had but a brief moment with you, I learned a lot. I learned about how truly beautiful you were inside and out, about how wonderfully charming and intoxicating your personality was, about how incredibly positive and powerful your attitude and ambition were, and how beautiful a smile you had.

But the one thing I learned most from you is how little I should complain and how meaningless my problems were. I learned how blessed I am and how I should cherish my life. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to meet you. Now I know that I can honestly say that I have truly met and captured an angel!

Over the weekend we went to a baby shower for our good friend Sandy. Wow! This was the 2nd baby shower in 2 weeks for us! We couldn’t stay for long but we had fun nonetheless.

Before we left, I saw the light from the quickly setting sun coming through the hedges. Ever the photographer, I didn’t want to waste it, so I asked Sandy if I could get a quick grab shot of her. She agreed and I quickly posed her and took one shot.

I have seen so many new births lately it made me realize that the cycle of life continues on regardless of the chaos of the world around us. I truly believe that the passing away of one soul is the new beginning of another and instead of mourning the doom and gloom of the world and the death of so many, I am celebrating the birth of a new life, a new beginning, and a hope for a better world for all of us. And with the birth of a new generation there is always hope and a chance for a happy and prosperous new future.

So for this Thanksgiving, that’s what I’m thankful for! Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to photograph my bro Vinnie ( doin some djing for a Quince. Man is he awesome! While shootin I noticed how cool the red uplighting that he had set up around the room looked. I looked at one of the walls and I figured it would be a great light for a photo of a couple. Better yet, of the parents!

Later on that night I asked if I could have a few minutes to photograph them against the wall and tried my best to explain how it was going to turn out. They said “Yeah sure!” not really understanding what I was going to do or how it was going to turn out.

So I brought them to the spot and set up their pose and... click. One shot, one minute, and it was my last image of the night.
