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.
I can’t wait to watch her grow!
