I was so intrigued when Gary contacted me. He wanted me to photograph a very special time in his parents life, their 50th Anniversary! Remembering so fondly my own grandparents Golden Anniversary, I knew I wanted to be a part of their day. What had me so intrigued you may ask? That the family session would consist of 19 people! As many photographers will tell you, photographing groups of this size can pose many questions with the main one being if everyone will be an active participant. As you can see, that was not a problem… at all! The Cooper Family was such an absolute pleasure to work with! They were so kind and had such a positive energy.
Rose and Fred, Congratulations on reaching such a special milestone in your lives. As I was watching you interact with your family it brought to mind one of my favorite country songs…
“Yea there ain’t nothing not affected
When two hearts get connected
All that is will be or ever was
Every single choice we make
Every breath we get to take
Is all because two people fell in love“
Your love for each other is such a testament to everyone you meet. Congratulations again and thank you for allowing me to be a part of such a beautiful day!!!
