Furthering my commitment to document stories and relationships (ie: #existinpictures )– I asked my friends Cheryl and Nancy if they would allow me to photograph them. Which of course they agreed. (Okay with maybe a little bit of salesmanship on my part). Anyway - Nancy is not only a friend but she is also my sons Mother in Law and Cheryl is a dear friend and neighbor. They have such a great relationship and I wanted to document it for them and their families.
My idea was to capture their relationship in the Downtown Campbell Coffee Shop. You see, coffee is a big part of the life for Nancy and Cheryl. You can read Cheryl’s blog http://cheryloreglia.blogspot.com/ to learn more about her love of coffee.) So it was a natural to set up this photo shoot at the Orchard Valley Coffee in Campbell . http://www.orchardvalleycoffee.com/
Orchard Valley has a fabulous old time feel to it. It is decorated with an antique coffee roaster and many wooden tables and chairs. They also have comfy sofas and chairs that you can enjoy your favorite “cup of Joe”. As you can see the lighting is awesome thanks to the large walls of windows that look out to the Campbell Ave. Basically they have a very small town feel to the atmosphere.
Anyway – My goal was to capture the love between these two sisters, and try to show their relationship in a more voyeuristic way. Basically, letting the viewer of these images catch a glimpse in to the relationship of these two wonderful women. Please have a look at the quick video below of the images and let me know your thoughts.
PS – I would LOVE to help you capture your story - so you too can “exist in pictures ”. If you are interested send me a note or reach out on social media so we can chat. I look forward to it!
