New York 2016
Visiting ground zero was profound for us as a family. No words can describe the pit in my stomach as I felt the loss. When I feel such sadness, I usually look up, and somehow even that didn't help me today. Why can't we all just exist on this earth together and tolerate our differences? It's big enough for everyone. So sad.
As we continued on our visit of New York, I realized that hope was in everything as we looked around. Hope and freedom has always been represented by the Statue of Liberty. But, hope is in everything. Hope is in the city, the buildings and the people we meet, the new food we try and the traditions we learn and create. Hope is reborn in our children and the things we teach them. New York remains a beautiful city, representing strength, history, and hope. We must never forget that there will always be hope in our world, no matter what.
Before and after the Orlando nightclub shooting.
As a wedding and event photographer, based out of Cave Creek, Arizona, I hope to capture the love and joy that is in our daily life between the ones we love. May these images always give you hope and remind you of the love that is there.
Beautiful photos! I lived in New York for the first 26 years of my life. I lived in the borough of Queens and worked in Manhattan for about 3 years. I traveled in the subway daily. I was a secretary for a federal agency which merged with the Federal. Bureau of Narcotics. It was interesting work. My mother took my sisters and me to “the city” every Christmas to see the big tree at Rockefeller Center. We always talked about actually skating there, but my sisters finally decided to when I was pregnant and couldn’t join them! I went to Radio City several times with my own family to watch a movie and then got to watch the Rockettes perform. I think we only paid about $5.00 each admittance fee. I also remember the Statue of Liberty. I went there on a class trip when I was in the 4th grade, and remember the thrill of it. I also walked up to the crown and looked out. Thanks for stirring my memories. I never did go into the twin towers because of my fear of heights., but am sorry I didn’t go. You guys probably saw more of NY than I ever did.
