I had the amazing opportunity to take professional portraits of Betty and Charles (who happen to be my grandparents) while I was back visiting family in California.
December 2, 1955 was the day they said I do. This December will mark 62 years of marriage! Their love story began on the day that my Grandpa asked my Grandmother to lunch one day at school. Every day following, my Great-Grandma made sure that Charles had an extra dollar to buy Betty's lunch for her. Wouldn't it be nice if a burger and coke were still only $1?
During their session we shared a lot of laughter and many smiles. I asked them to grab something special to them to photograph. Naturally, we had their wedding day portrait. My Grandma knew of what object she wanted and instantly and made her way to grab her gold thimble my Grandpa had made and engraved for her for their 50th Wedding Anniversary.
"But Ma is what means most to me" is the first thing that came to my Grandpa's mind. We ended up grabbing his toy tractor which is the oldest of his collection and one of his favorites!
I loved traveling from Puyallup,WA to offer my Professional Photography services in California. Having the opportunity to take my grandparents professional portraits really topped off the end of my trip!
Special thanks to my Grandparents for allowing me to photograph this special time in your lives.
