Like Mother...Like Daughter

Once again I get the pleasure to write about a client relationship that has span not only years but centuries.  It started with me photographing the mother's wedding (Diana Holiday) more than 10-15 years ago then later in 2008 when she contracted me to photograph her daughter's (Erin) senior portraits.  Recently, I got the called to cover Erin's wedding and it was at that moment I realized that I was not just another professional photographer, but I was part of their family.

I was delighted to see that the young teenager I'd photographed years ago had now grown into a young woman and was becoming the wife to the man of her choice. It's moments like this in my career that started back in 1969 when I decided to become a photographer that speaks to the heart and the reasoning why I love the art of photography.  One could say that photography is ageless in content and perpetual in personal relationships.

Over the years I have maintained complete control over the images I've taken of my clients and so to add a little nostalgia to this blog I went into my archives to see what I could find on Erin. I figured I would drop in a few images of her senior session to tie this posting all together.  (If I had to I do believe that I could just about name ever (almost) client that I've photographed.  It gets to be that personal when you really connect with your subject).  When I began photographing Erin the day of her wedding it was if I was photographing her the day after her senior session, except...  Now she was transformed into a beautiful bride!

Congratulations Erin and Donald.  It was awesome seeing you again, Erin and Diana, and a pleasure covering your special day.
