Coweta County Family Photographer

I had the privilege of doing a mini session with this lovely family.  This beautiful lady will be celebrating her 89th birthday in less than two weeks!  She recently had both her children in town so they came by Legacy Portraits’ studio for a quick family shoot.

When I delivered her prints it gave me great pleasure to watch her open her box and see her images.  She showed me another family portrait hanging on her wall. It had been taken when her children were very young.  It was the last professional family portrait they had taken.  The fact that it still hangs on her wall shows how she treasures it.  It felt wonderful to give her another treasure to hang!  She told me how much she wished her husband was still alive to be included in the new photo.  I am sure it is bitter sweet.  No one can stop time but, we can freeze just a tiny moment so those treasures in life can be hung on our walls and bring back fond memories with a glance.

Martha has agreed to be part of my “Senior Portraits” project.  Over the next year I plan to photograph real seniors (not high school) from the local community.  I am currently looking for people over the age of 80 to be models.  If you know someone in the Coweta county area who might be interested please call me.  770.363.4791This a a free photo shoot with no obligation to purchase anything.
