hey, I'm ALICIA
We were so thrilled! But even with all the excitement, I felt like there was something missing. And there was ... my mother.
My mother passed away from cancer in 2005. I was so young. She didn't see me graduate college or have a baby. Now, she wasn't going to see me get married.
Thanks to Pinterest, the idea of having a portrait of my mother to memorialize her was something I deeply wanted.
BUT I HAD ZERO PHOTOS OF HER ....
I know what you are thinking, how?! Being so young I had my older brother keep all the photos of her. I knew I wasn't at my forever home and was so nervous about loosing her portraits. I had him keep them all. We were not on speaking terms. Even my mothers siblings wouldn't even give me a portrait of her.
our special day arrived! as i walked towards my soon-to-be-wife, i was surprised with a portrait of my mother at the end of the aisle.
My mothers best-friend (who is like a second mother to me), selflessly surprised me with a portrait of my mother. It was in a brown frame in the sand, next to the spot I was going to be standing.
I immediately starting to bawl.
This is when I understood the true value of a portrait.
In case we’ve never met. I'm Alicia. Let me tell you a little about me.
I'll take the time to listen to you both and truly understand your wants and needs.
I believe a good photographer can make it work no matter the location/weather.
I'Il even tell you if you have spinach in your teeth
