I have a wonderful job. I say it all the time, you know this….it’s taken me places and has let me meet people I would never have dreamed of. One of those things that ranks right up there with all of it is this family. Lisa and Florian are from Zurich and I first met them two years ago when they were expecting their first child Ella. Not only have I gotten to capture Ella with her parents here in America (they are here temporarily) but I also captured the birth of Ella as Lisa and Florian went into the hospital. In one word…amazing. To watch them and their joy for life and how they savor moments…well I’ve learned so much. And to witness the arrival and then as she has grown it really brings everything I do home. I have always looked at my business as a way to be creative and provide art for people of their family and loved ones–Use my design sense as a documentarian. But there is something special about watching a child come into the world. It’s not about a canvas hanging in the hallway (even though i love them) it’s about the magic and beauty of life as it happens at the beginning. Having said that I’m doing a massive blog of Ella and her sessions with me as she has grown because it is time. Ella just welcomed a little sister Lilli last week and I was there to meet her.
And off the subject, you will notice I’m changing my blog…new and exciting times.
