I did a mini photo shoot today for a couple of really special friends and their two-and-a-half year-old. We went to the Arboretum in Seattle, which was awash with fall color and deliciously slanting sunlight. We lucked out with the weather. Which is only right, since this family has had a suckass year. A really suckass year.
The shot below wasn't the best of the bunch, but it shows what we were going for: Togetherness. Happiness. Robust health. A long, lovely path ahead.
Tomorrow I'm attending a get-together celebrating the end of their difficult 2011. Things are finally feeling lighter for them. And I'm honored to be part of it all.
