At the end of a family portrait session with one of my favorite families who’s also a dancer, on the way out he turns to me and says, “what’s the name of the reindeer?” I replied hesitantly “while I don’t know. I don’t think he has a name. What name should I give him?” Blake thinks a moment and then says “Dancer!”
Of course, it’s Dancer! Not only because he’s always dancing around in the wind, but I photograph a lot of dancers!!! LOL
In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s easy to get caught up in everything that needs to get done: decorations, travel, parties. But it is also at this time of the year that we take a moment to pause and reflect on the year’s journey. We take stock of the love and good fortune that surrounds us, look over the memories of the last year, and give thanks for all those who helped us to create memories throughout the year.
As we look forward to 2017, a year full of potential and hope, we are grateful that you have chosen us to capture and share your memories and events with us and we look forward to sharing all your future adventures.
Its hard to create a photograph that represents the love a mother has for a son, who just returned home from military service and just cut the yellow ribbon off the tree in front of their house. This photo comes close.
PFC Ryan returned home from the Army for the holiday break. He had been serving in Afghanistan. He suffered several injuries from attacks on American solders.
Ryan and his family were greeted with an escort and parade from the Stewartsville Volunteer Fire Co, where he’s a member, along with numerous other first responders as he returned home to his family.
