When I first met Casia and Roland years ago, I had no idea that it would turn into one of my long lasting professional and personal relationships. They are both amazing massage therapists (www.stillpointmassagenyc.com) with very strong talents in the arts and music. We were a perfect fit for the wedding photography they wanted and it was that long ago-1999, that I shot the wedding in film- one camera with black and white film and the other with color negative.
When their 1st child Zak was born, it was natural that I photographed him at a few days old. And following him, came Luke and Sophia.
At least once a year, I have photographed the family. From Casia’s pregnancies to all of the kids this past fall at their new school.
We usually pick a place that has special meaning for the Davis family- from going to ABC Carpet and Home at Christmas time (insane!) to the beaches in the Hampton’s (my personal favorite) to another marriage ceremony in a barn.
So far Zak, Luke and Sophia still greet me warmly and we always laugh a whole lot. They show off their latest accomplishments and want pictures of playing the violin, tree climbing, soccer etc.
Given everyone’s busy lives, I am excited that we are all committed to this documentation and actually to paraphrase Nike “ just doing it” .
