A couple of months ago I received an email that was not my typical birthday session inquiry. It began with “I see from your website that you are primarily a baby photographer, but I am looking for some fun photos to capture my 75th birthday.”
I called and hit it off with B, and I loved that she was celebrating 3/4 of a century in a world where sometimes age is treated as an illness that we hide. Not B. She was going to celebrate, and with champagne! I knew we were a match.
In her own words:
“Life is a not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to slide in with champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming… WOW… what a ride!
75 and great to be alive! rue, the body is getting old with wrinkles and grey hair but life is still a wild ride with plenty of champagne and strawberries left. So, here’s a cheer to all of you have been a part of this ride to date… on to the next adventure!”
I mean… #goals. Love her.
