When I initially received the inquiry if I’d be interested in traveling to Whidbey Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington to photograph a family on vacation celebrating a golden wedding anniversary, my initial reaction was one of complete joy and excitement. Â YES! Â Yes, please and thank you! Â I had a feeling it was going to be amazing. Â Beautiful NW island getaway in August with amazing peopleÂ andÂ I got to bring my family along. Â Special is one way to describe it all because it truly was, but also just the epitome of gracious in every possible way. Â I could not have felt more grateful at the opportunity to document such a monumental occasion in such a beautiful place with one of the loveliest families I’ve ever met. Â This is the kind of work I’d love to do every day–amazing families, fun destinations, loads of film…YES. Â The 10+ hugs I received from one of the little girls was just a silver lining. Â Thank you Norman family for your amazing hospitality and for being so warm and inviting. Â It was the best day and I cannot thank you all enough. xoxo
