I love working with clients who are celebrating something, whether it be an engagement or an anniversary or a graduation, because there is this extra beam of happiness that comes with that feeling of accomplishment. On this particular session, I was able to document not only one, but two distinct celebrations; a Grade School graduation and 40 years of wedded bliss. When I was contacted by my client to surprise her daughter with graduation pictures and her parents with anniversary pictures, I was elated! Milestones are great, and so are surprises! I had a wonderful afternoon with this charming family, and while Florida has a habit of throwing a wet wrench in plans (we spent much of the afternoon moving swiftly from location to location in our attempt to dodge rain clouds), it was a beautiful time spent with a beautiful family. Can’t beat that!
