Two years ago this week, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph a family at Cannon Beach. It was Grandpa's 90th birthday and almost the whole family was there. The following November, Grandpa passed away. Almost a year later (October 2014) I was hired to go back to Cannon Beach to photograph Grandma's 90th birthday. Her cousin came as well as the grand-kids and great grand-kids that were not able to make it the first time around. When I showed up at the hotel for the session and Grandma saw me, she lit up with excitement and said, "Oh! I hoped you would be here!" I was so glad I could make her happy and that her family thought to bring me down for another session.
Laughing and smiling.
