I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason.
This session is one of those instances where I was meant to be their photographer.
No one else.
It started with a phone call coming in into my landline. I don’t answer the landline anymore.
It’s actually hooked to a fax machine and the main ringer turned off so I rarely even hear it anymore.
When I do hear it – I ignore it – except this time. It was meant to be.
The call was from this mom – saying Cori had sent her to me (thanks, Cori). That she had already had another photographer picked out
for the job – but was calling me just because. It was meant to be.
She told me that she was almost 40 and her only child, a son, is 9 (instant chills – my exact story in 2 years). It was meant to be.
She wanted me to capture her and her son – their friendship, their laughter, their love – as her
40th birthday present to herself. I’m almost in tears. It was meant to be.
I assured her she came to the right place. I WAS the photographer for her. I wanted this for her
as much as I would want this for myself.
It was awesome. Everything I could want it to be.
The weather was perfect. The tide was perfect. The North End was gorgeous.
Their relationship…………….much like mine and my sons. I’m doing this for me one day, soon.
It was meant to be.
Moms, please take time to celebrate yourself. Please take time to have portraits done WITH your children.
Contact me so I can make it happen for you. It would be the perfect gift to yourself.
