I love this story.
These six people have been friends for more than 30 years. Some of them met in college. Somehow, in all that time, they have never managed to take a group picture. Last year for her birthday, Sally said all she wanted was a photograph of all of them together.
The group routinely meets for dinner several times a year. They invited me to join them at one of these gatherings to help grant her birthday wish.
We took the opportunity to photograph the friends in small groups too. One thing remains consistent throughout: genuine affection shines in every frame.
These images hang on the wall in Sally’s home and she tells me they make her happy every day.
We think of hiring a photographer for the big events. But often we are most ourselves in the smaller moments. Don’t forget to give those their due. Let me know if I can help.
So . . . who are those special folks who add richness to your life? Gather them around you. Relax. See? You’re beautiful!
