I have been woefully remiss in updating my blog.
My wonderful father passed away the Tuesday after Easter. Even though he’d battled leukemia for almost 13 years, it seemed so sudden and entirely too soon.
I photographed some of the indirect activity surrounding his death and funeral, particularly the incredible outpouring of kindness, support and solidarity our family received from my parents’ family and friends.
I thought I’d compile them for publication (not here, but somewhere) at some point, but right now I can’t bear to look at them.
I’ve found comfort in getting back to work and all the never-ending but somehow soothing minutiae that accompanies daily life.
And I understand my wonderful clients’ positions too. You sympathize and pray for me, but fact is you’ve still entrusted me with the honor of capturing some of the most important moments of your life. And I can truly say that I’m more than up to the task. I look forward to it.
Perhaps my feelings are best expressed in Annelle’s quote from Steel Magnolias:
“Miss Truvy, I promise that my personal tragedy will not interfere with my ability to do good hair.”
