We would come home those chilly nights to a wood-burning fire, oil-lit candles dotted throughout, jazz swirling about the nooks and crannies, and a cocktail (or two) awaiting. There was homemade bread, and homegrown vegetables, and beautiful dinners that my friend had so thoughtfully prepared … walks outside down the loose-gravel, greenery lined pathway to the most handsome seating area by the fire … cigars under a starlit sky as we chatted about life and love and happenings, all with a glass of Pinot in hand.
Right before we left, I asked if I might capture a few images of their family together. I hoped to at least leave them with some tangible reminders of the incredible love they shared. A family whose open arms I am so grateful for and whose kindness has left such an indelible mark on my heart.” Tara, Photographer
