I have the opportunity to meet a lot of people through photography.

Some people who I meet, I have a brief connection with.

Other people that I cross paths with, I connect with at a deep level and become close friends with.

Some of it is timing, but some of it is just an unexplainable bond.

That is the case with my friend Michele.

I photographed Steve and Michele’s wedding a couple of years ago and from our first meeting, we just clicked.

Every time we see each other, it’s like we’ve known each other forever…but I have the feeling anyone who meets Michele might feel like I do?

She just makes me feel like I’m important to her. 

That’s the kind of person I want to be.

I want to really see people whose paths I cross and I want them to feel like they matter to me…because they do.

I don’t want to be absent-minded and not present in the moment.

Every person has value and I want them to know that they matter to me.

But I digress.

Michele has that down. 

She knows how to care about people.

I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea.

Steve and Michele had a beautiful baby girl recently and every time I think about her, I smile.

She doesn’t even know how blessed she is.

Meet Antonia.

I can’t wait to watch her grow!

God bless!

Taylor is my cousin Mark’s daughter.

So I could be a little biased, because she’s family and even though I don’t see her often, she has some of the best traits of her dad, aunt, uncle and grandma.

She looks a little like her Aunt Marcy and laughs easily like her dad and Uncle Mark.

Her grandma is my Aunt Mary and I think she has a tender heart like her grandma. 

Plus, she’s a Steeler’s fan, and the Grefes have always been known by their love of the Steelers.

Loved connecting with Taylor, her mom Cheri and her dad Mark.

Love that she’s a little bit country and tomboyish too. 

Hope you like these peeks Taylor!

God bless!
