W family

“What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life – to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories.”  – George Eliot

Sometimes I wish I could write long stories about the families I photograph and the things we talk about in those few hours of popping in on their life. If it weren’t for my mouth being so prone to jabber, I wouldn’t ask the questions that I do, and I would probably walk away feeling like I had only “worked” for this couple of hours.  Mind you, sometimes this happens. Sometimes it’s a quiet day and I just focus on getting the job done. The God of our universe chooses these moments, not me. On the other hand, sometimes  all the stars seem to align and shooting is just…easy. Had I kept my mouth shut in this last session, I wouldn’t have learned that the couple met over the internet (like my husband and I) and were completely in love before they’d ever met. It was AWESOME to meet someone who had such a similar story to mine.

B and T, (and your parents) thanks so much for choosing me to mark this moment in time for your family. Also, thank you for letting us use the brown couch and for your hard work driving it to the field on the top of your car. I am so excited to share these photos with you and let me know if you too can’t stop thinking about those blonde curls, blue eyes and ridiculously cute Swedish and English smiles.

Rachel ~ After viewing your redemptive film, “October Baby,” I wanted to find you in cyberspace. Thankfully, I happily found myself in the middle of your photographs and stories. Beautiful. You obviously honor and serve the good dear LORD, who is near. Refreshingly redemptive. Thank you
