Although it has been a difficult time (thank you for all your kind condolences), we did have something good happen in February! Our son Cody visited us from Toronto for a week. I arranged for Cody and I to have a portrait session while he was here.
This year is a special year for us, and it's all about the number 26. My birthday is May 26th. Cody was born on May 26th, on my 26th birthday. This year he'll be 26, and it has been 20 years since our first official portrait was taken so I got to thinking that this was the year for another special portrait.
This photo is
from 20 years ago, and is dry mounted in a 19 x 19 inch square, hanging
in our bedroom. I just love the expression on his face...he was six
years old at the time.
I asked Bridgewater photographer John Burnett if he would take our portrait. John is a member of our local photo club and a wonderful portrait photographer (as well as a spectacular photographer in general!) John's website is here if you want to take a look: jburnett.artistwebsites.com/
"The Kiss" is my favourite....we are huggers....not kissers....so this is truly an historic moment! I'll be adding it to my bedroom wall beside our 20 year old portrait.
John Burnett will be displaying his photographs at The Flying Fox Bakery, 16 John Street in Shelburne, NS during the month of March.
