When the smoke cleared.

An old highschool friend of mine emailed me to ask about photography services for his family. In February, tragedy struck them and their home and all it's contents burned to the ground, right before their eyes. They lost everything. Family pets, wedding photographs, and every memory they had ever made including family pictures. My heart went out to them.

They wanted new beginnings. Their new home is being dug. They are slowly rebuilding their world. And last night was a fresh start for some family photographs. Stephan did not want the typical "black background with matching t-shirts" kind of portrait. We met them in Cambridge and just photographed them being a family. I love the autonomy these parents give their children to express themselves, colored hair and all.

Here are a few photos from last night. And I wish them all the luck in the world as they rebuild. And they will.
