A lot of what is done in photography is related to a tradition in one form or another. Weddings, other celebrations, coming of age photos whether it's one year old or 18 years old. It used to make my father so happy to be able to connect the branches of a family's tree through his photos and, as I get older, I find that I get a great deal of satisfaction from doing the same. I just finished some photos for Jessica Pope Henderson of her baby in the family christening gown which goes back several generations. I was also working on restoring some old photos that my father took of Jessica, her twin sister and her brother in the same christening gown some 20+ years ago. While I was searching the old negatives and the old files to print all the photos they wanted, I thought it would be nice to share some of this family through the years. It's a privilege to be trusted to take photos for anyone; it is a compliment to have families come back over and over again through the years.
