Celebrating, Capturing & Remembering Life's Special moments
Today I had the privilege to photograph a couple who has been married for 50 years. This month their marriage will be transitioning into a new phase as the husband enters memory care. As I edit the pictures different emotions stir in me, but one prevails, awe. Awe at the love that persists and is still evident in the midst of challenges and confusion. Awe at how a kiss, or a hand held still brings comfort even when perception is cloudy.

My slogan for photography is "celebrating, capturing and remembering life's special moments", and I felt like I was able to do exactly that today. The special moments of life aren't all thrilling, exciting and happy. Some of them are tinged with sadness and uncertainty. Even so they are worth celebrating and remembering because even the painful moments stand on the shoulders of joyous memories. There is beauty in the transitions because often the mourning is proof of what was, and is in it's own upside down sort of way a celebration of remembrances.

This week my husband and I celebrate our 3rd anniversary. As I browse through these pictures I think of us in 47 years. What will our story be? What moments will we be remembering and celebrating as we contemplate a new phase of life?
