Last week, my Aunt Wendy passed away. It was unexpected, yet not surprising, as she had spent most of her life battling lupus. Wendy was a wonderful, loving, incredibly strong woman. She used to say that she and I were kindred spirits because of our mutual love of photography, I think of her every time I pick up a camera. My family gathered in New Jersey to say goodbye, to be together, and to celebrate Wendy’s life. So often family gatherings can devolve into criticisms, arguments, and frustration, but this trip we all came together, grateful to be with family. I wanted to share some photos of this gathering, it was one of the most special family trips I can remember.
Thanks for letting me share something a little more personal. I’ll be back later this week with more Thanksgiving.
