Movies.  I love them.

Last weekend I meet up with some friends and saw a great one. Disney’s Big Hero 6.

big-hero-6

It had everything a good story needs.  Joy, laughter, excitement, and sadness.  But especially laughter.  It handles a tough situation with humor.  It never takes itself too seriously.  I can’t say I have one favorite character.  You will find yourself laughing at everyone.

As I was watching the movie I was struck with awe about how much courage these guys had.  It takes courage to wake up after tragedy has struck.  It takes courage to face your fears.  It takes courage to even try especially after failure.

It reminded me of life.  How so often we can see an obstacle and that is all we see.  We don’t see it how problems lead to a the solution.  It is a hurtle to pass to get on to the next hurtle.  The truth is that each hurtle we pass becomes easier as we learn to stretch our legs.

So if you have time this weekend gather up a few friends and get out of the house and go see it.  You can even get tickets here.

Fun. Caring. Energetic.

These are three words that come to mind when I think of the Holgates.

I meet them a few years back at church.  Heather and Shannon are both examples of what fun loving Godly parents should look like.  Their kids of whom maybe only one still fits in that category are smart, thoughtful, and good looking.  But who would expect any less when you have parents like they do.

We meet up at there house on a Sunday afternoon a few weeks back.  Fall was in full swing!  Spending time with them was a true joy full of fun and crazy moments.  It is most likely the only session I will ever have that includes an impromptu soccer game and chicken chasing.

It truly was a pleasure to be able to catch a small slice of their story.  A story that anyone would jump at to be part of.

I have talked about my love for community and how important it is.  I am convinced we were not meant to face the challenges that come at us alone.  I was reminded of this a few months back.

Through one of the referral groups I am part of I got in touch with Franco Caropoli of Photos by Franco.  He reached out to me needing a 2nd shooter  after he spoke to my good friend Joline who gave him a heads up that I was a good guy.  It’s great to have friends who will speak up for you.

It was a glorious day  at Bliss Farm Events.  Alex and Angie were one of the most beautiful couples I have had the opportunity to photograph.  I knew Angie was great from the swagger in her step and smile on her face.  It seemed the whole world stopped that day as everyone rejoiced in the love that they had for each other.

I am so thankful that I got to spend the day with Alex and Angie.  Though I am truly more grateful for being able to work with Franco and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Classic Beauty.

There are two word that come to mind when I think of Elizabeth. A young woman with a smile on her face and laughter in her heart.

She has the whole world ahead of her as she is about to graduate. A grand adventure that she has been preparing her whole life for. An adventure that has her parents grinning with pride and cheering her every step of the way.

Last Wednesday we meet for her Senior Session at one of the most beautiful spots in the area, Codman Estates. A beautiful location taken straight from the pages of Greek and Roman Histories. I can not think of a better location around for Elizabeth who looked like she stepped out of a Greek myth from two thousand years ago.

As she is about to embark into the next stage of life I pray that God would lead her steps and that she would keep her mishevious spirit.

Being that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month my friends got together and decided to have a benefit.

2014-10-10_0019.jpgIt was at one of the best salons around Drumais Salon in Marlborough. If you have not visited it you have to go. It is in a beautiful old building that used to be a shoe factory many years ago.

There were many in attendance from the community. Particuarly from the Marlborough Regional Chamber of Comerce. There were massages, a raffal, amazing food, and a chance to support local vendors.

I would also be amiss if I did not mention my friends Ellen Goodman, and Maureen Letendre. Ellen is an investment guru for Prudential who helps people make the best of the financial road ahead. Maureen is life coach for In Demand Coaching who helps you navigate the mine fields that life sends your way.
