Family is truly a cornerstone to our joy and happiness. Every moment we can spent together is another nugget of memory in our treasure chest of life. As an adult, I see the even greater value and importance in enjoying our parents and sharing in their life. After all, this moment only happens once…family photography captures it!

Yesterday, I had the privilege of photographing Mom and Dad Verna with their adult son Chris. As pillars in the community of Philadelphia, they have enjoyed a long and prosperous life. Even when faced with significant physical challenges, they met them head on and overcame. Whether it comes to sharing an amazing homemade Italian meal or just wonderful, lively conversation, the Vernas definitely deliver! To me, this image captures both their strength as well as the true warmth of their hearts. Add in a gentle kiss of a S Florida sunset and you have a winning moment to be shared with generations to come!

Each of us has special, joyful moments in our lives. A small sliver of those the are over-the-top moments of profound happiness that will never be forgotten. They are to be cherished, celebrated and relived over and over. I had the privilege of sharing one of these key life moments with dear friends during the baptism of their young son. As an extra treat for me, I was honored to be asked to photograph this precious family event.

After years of longing and much faith, Eric and Yolanda were blessed with a beautiful son. Their lives where filled with joy as the proud parents shared their new bundle of love with those around them. Not long after, they invited a small group of their closest family and special friends to travel to a tiny town in rural Florida. There, we found a humble church and a very loving priest who performed the ceremony. His compassionate words and the twinkle in his eye reaffirmed that he was the right person to be part of this quiet event. It was a truly wonderful day for all and a priceless moment in time for this young family. Congratulations Eric, Yolanda and young Xander!
