Happy Friday! After a long and much needed break to spend time with my family I was invited to photograph a birthday party. This wasn’t just any birthday party! It was a celebration for the one and only beautiful, hilarious and super sweet grandma Vera who turned 90. I was honored to be asked to capture such a special woman and couldn’t think of a better way to get back to work.
Grandma Vera’s family came near and far to reunite and celebrate her life. It was an incredible party filled with love, delicious food and laughter. I enjoyed listening to stories about Vera’s life, admired pictures from her wedding day and laughed so much my cheeks hurt. I felt the love that showered Mrs Vera and couldn’t help wondering if I would be as witty, wise and wonderful when I’m all grown up. Life often becomes so serious. Vera reminded me that life is too short to always be serious. When we surround ourselves with friends and family that lift us up and we are willing to laugh at life straight in the face we radiate and sparkle 90% more. It’s true!
Thank you, grandma Vera and family for inviting me to your 90’th birthday bash! It was magical! I am most grateful. I hope you all enjoy the post. More pictures to come, soon!
Much love and many blessings,
