Salem Portrait Photographer . . . Life is short, take photos.

This mom is one of my best friends. I have known her for over 20 years and have been doing family portraits for her and her girls for several years now.
We often had our ordering appointments with her dad present because he loved to look at the photos.
We would chit chat about cameras and photography, as we shared the passion.
He had been wanting to schedule extended family photos for months, but fell ill and passed away much sooner than expected. We never got to do those photos.
It would have been easy for my friend to skip her family photos this year, with all that she had going on, but because she values these annual photos and because she knows her dad did too, we both made a little extra effort to make them happen this year.
It was also so nice to include her fiancé in the photos this year!
