6 Months of Cuteness for the L. Family

I know Molly and Clint from photographing their wedding back in October 2012. I may not photograph weddings anymore, but as with most of my clients, we hit it off and stayed friends.

They had been struggling to start a family and then they heard of a little baby who was to be up for adoption, they got to welcome her into their arms as a newborn. I know what that’s like, as we struggled for years, and had just signed the paperwork to start the adoption process as our Plan B, when our daughter finally became the miracle we were praying for to become pregnant with.

I do portraits for family and children on private referrals now and I am always honored to have these kinds of clients. These are the moments that you can’t get back and having a professional take the pictures far outweighs using a cell phone or a relative with that “fancy camera”.

Originally we were going to meet in a park along the Delaware River, but it got too windy and cold. So at the last minute, we decided to go to their home. I contemplated different areas, and then we decided simple was best. We had already planned on the chalkboard, so I wrote out her name and how old she was. She is the sweetest baby girl and loves to make sounds like she’s trying to blow them out of her mouth. I well remember this age and it’s a lot of fun! The weather was still chilly but not like it was before and so we got some images in the front of their home.

Putting A Lot Of Love In Our Hearts

On Sunday, January 15th, 2017,  The Dorothea Dix Unitarian Universalist Community raised the rainbow flag..again. Why, you may be asking, is this so significant? Because a few weeks back, someone had stolen the one that was waving underneath the American flag that stands outside their building right here in on Park St. in Bordentown, NJ. By doing so, that person or individuals, committed an act of hate. This is something that is not new to the LGBTQ community, but I am proud to say that many of my friends here in Bordentown took a stand, donated money to purchase another rainbow flag, and because of this, we showed whoever did this that we do not hate, but love each other.

Welcoming remarks were said by, Warren Spengler, President. AFter Mr. Spengler spoke, everyone was encouraged to sing “Put A Little Love in Your Heart” sung by the Tunuunitarians. Speakers were Rabbi Julie Pfau, Rev. Gene Quavel, DDUUC Spirit Circle, Rev. William Stell, and Rev. Flo Gelo. Nami Lane sang”Imagine” by John Lennon.

It was a packed house with standing room only, filled with prayers, good will and children were part of the  blessing of the new rainbow flag.  As we all went outside to witness the flag being raised up, everyone was ask to touch the flag for kindness and good spirit. Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors,Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors, Bordentown,Dorthea Dix Unitarian Church,NJ,Photo By Deirdre Ryan Photography www.deirdreryanphotography.com,Rainbow Flag Raising,community,families,friends,loved ones,musicians,neighbors,Blessing of the flag….
