Awhile back, I made a trip up to Rimbey to visit my friend Talitha and her family. While I was there, I did some portraits of her parents, Marlene and John.
During my visit, Marlene showed me this wonderful book of portraits of older women by Joyce Tenneson. It was beautiful and captivating and inspiring, and it makes me want to photograph older women and men more often.
I truly believe that the older you get, the more your spirit shines through your appearance. When you live a life full of love and openheartedness and courage, the beauty from those inner qualities can be more clearly seen as you age.
Thanks Marlene and John, for the opportunity to photograph you!
