“September was a thirty-days long goodbye to summer, to the season that left everybody both happy and weary of the warm, humid weather and the exhausting but thrilling adventures.”
― Lea Malot
On a day when it felt more like late summer than early Fall with warm winds and a full moon high in the sky. A boy, basketball, his best friend, a sister he adores (though wouldn’t ever admit it) and parents who are in lock step with their children. That’s where we began with this family on a beautiful warm early Fall evening outside over a game of basketball. They shared stories and exchanged affectionate humor. There was a lot of laughing (and eye rolling in jest) and a studied “model” pose kind of face which I personally admired during portraits. When we headed back inside and they sat on the floor immersed in conversation, time felt like a beautiful pause. The story of this family continued on the morning of the ceremony surrounded by a swirl of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. After a short rehearsal and portraits, I left and returned for the first emotions transitioning to lunch. We ended that evening at a brilliant Party at an art gallery complete with a DJ, dancing & Hora. As the first in this family, this is a story of emotions and expressions of gratitude and pride, of traditions new and old bound up with laughter and love.
