Bringing the family home
I had the pleasure of photographing Marisa and Rome's wedding a few years ago. Since then, they've added a little darling to their family.
It's obvious she's stolen their hearts and it's not hard to see why.
Marisa's grandpa Pinky used to own and run the White Motor Company in town. He passed away several years ago, but the building still stands and is a sweet reminder of people we've known and loved. The building has recently been turned into Pinky's Market, under new ownership. Marisa thought a photo shoot around the building would be a fun idea during her trip home from North Carolina.
I love old buildings, not just for artistic beauty, but also because of the history they remind us of.
Almira, isn't so much of a "hopping" town these days. Walking down sidewalks, in front of these old buildings that line our quiet streets, allow vibrant memories of childhood to come flooding back in. Riding bicycles down these sidewalks and streets, wildly waving and shouting a hello to anyone and everyone you pass. Visions of Pinky and Marisa's dad sitting on the bench outside this building come quickly to the front of my memory on this street corner. Memories of the good ol' days.
I agreed with Marisa. This was a perfect place to bring the family.
Marisa has since moved on from running the streets, riding bicycles and crushing the softball; to high heels, crushing the corporate world and loving on her family.
One thing I remember about Marisa, everything she did, she went all in. All or nothing. And she's still doing it today.
I hope your trip home with the family was all you hoped it to be. There is just nothing quite like home.
