If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough. ~Robert Capa (combat photographer and photojournalist, 1913-1954)
Sweet Gracie helped remind me of this. :)
My youngest brother graduated from UCI last month (with a higher GPA than me, dangit), and we couldn’t have been prouder. I shot mostly digital that day, but loved these few moments that I captured on film (another roll of Kodak Ektar 100).
It was super dark in the arena, but somehow I managed to catch a flash of light on my other brother’s face:
And the super delish chocolate cake my mom baked and Sarah decorated with the UCI logo:
So proud of my baby brother! Isn’t he handsome? (This one taken with my iPhone.)
June was chock full of big events like this. A wedding, two birthdays, Fathers Day and graduation. Phew! Did anybody else have an insane June?
This was just a quickie session, out on the front porch of my parents’ home while Auntie Elissa was visiting. Lucky for me she and my mom crack each other up, so all I really needed to do was put them in good light and click-click-click. :)
This is Elissa’s classic “I just said something witty/inappropriate” expression.
My mom and aunt surpassed sisterhood a long time ago and, somewhere along the line, became best friends. I love capturing their relationship! Makes me get a twinge of wistfulness that I don’t have a sister of my own, but then I just think about Nikki and Mindy and Nancy and Katie and Melissa...and I realize I haven’t missed out on much at all. I’m incredibly, incredibly lucky.
Miss you Auntie Princess!
