I don't know what I would have done without my associate Laura over the last few years, specially during the time my husband Jack died. Laura stood by my side in that difficult time, talked to me for hours on end on the phone late at night when I felt lonely and lost and she would shoot almost every wedding with me for a while just in case I felt overwhelmed. I shot my first wedding 5days after my husband's funeral and I knew that if things got bad Laura was there to take over.
It all worked out and I only felt one time like crying when the DJ played a song that was always special for my husband and myself. I learned one thing through that wedding, not only did I have a wonderful friend that was there for me, but also that since I loved my work I would survive and survive I did.
Everybody that follows my blog knows that last year on Valentines Day I married a wonderful man and life is once more perfect. Of course Laura was there to take our pictures and along with some very close friends we celebrated the beginning of a new life for Steve and myself.
The question is .........why am I writing all this.......today. Laura is leaving tomorrow to shoot a wedding up North and I will miss her, I always do when she goes out of town specially after a wedding. I still call her after every wedding even if she did not shoot with me or for me that day just to discuss the wedding and our work. This special lady shoots a lot of my weddings for me if I am already booked or quite often shoots along with me. She is not only a friend that I love with all my heart, but she is also a most talented photographer and I trust her completely knowing that my clients are in the best hands with her. I never have to worry.....she always delivers me beautiful images that both of us can be very proud of. Thank you Laura for being my associate and most of all my friend.
