The idea for a senior citizen session came after my grandparents passed away, and I realized I did not have a single picture of them the way I remember them – lounging on the front porch drinking a glass of iced tea, watching the hummingbirds flitter at the feeder. What I would give to have a photo of them to aid my often failing memory. In the photography world, this group in our society is often overlooked, and I don’t want others to be in the same situation I am now. The problem is that many people do not think to book sessions of the elders in their lives. So, I decided to do a giveaway to draw attention to them. I asked participants to nominate an elderly couple deserving of a photo session, and Laura and Leonard were the fortunate winners. A little over a year later, sweet Mrs. Laura left this world behind. I find solace in the fact that her family has these last photos of her and that the calling I felt came at such a fortuitous time. I know from the brief encounters I’ve had with those who knew her better than I, that she was well-loved and is dearly missed. Please do not wait until it is too late, like I did. You do not have to choose me to take them, but please get photos taken of those people in your life whom you cherish, young and old!
