Thrity Minutes In The Life, July 2013

I am thrilled to take part in this “Thirty Minutes in the Life” series with a group of fantastic photographers. When

you’re done here, I invite you to head over to check out ’30-Minutes In The Life’ of
photographer, Maria Angerilli.  She is a Vancouver, BC Lifestyle Photographer.   I am so excited to see what she has been up to!


I document many moments of our daily lives.  Some might say I “over-document” our lives.  However, there are some moments I never want to forget. 

Moments like these. . .

Last week was so warm that it was difficult to be outside for very long
during the day.  For that reason, we waited until the sun began to
descend behind the trees before making our way outdoors.  It was still
warm, but there was definite relief from the suffocating heat of the
afternoon sun.  On this particular evening Charlie, Meadow and I
meandered out to our backyard.

I stood back and watched.

And this beautiful scene unfolded.

For thirty minutes I stood and soaked in these moments that I could
never create on my own.  Moments that I wish I could place in a
beautifully wrapped box and revisit them whenever I want.  I stood back
and watched them with each other. . . so different and yet so similar. 

I often wonder how their relationship will develop.  Six years apart
sometimes feels like a lifetime.  Watching them together, though, I
realize it will be just fine.  Charlie?  He is quite smitten with his
little sister.  He smiles for her like he smiles for no one else.  I
wonder if it will remain this way?

I’m not naive enough to believe that they will never have their
not-so-pretty moments.  I’m certain they will.  If I had to guess,
however, I think Miss Meadow might have the key to wrapping her big
brother around her little finger for most of her life. . .

In fact, I might even put money on it.

Don’t forget to check out Vancouver, BC Lifestyle Photographer, Maria Angerilli!

Have a wonderful day!

  • SaraKellyPhoto - How wonderful their relationship is. My absolute favorite are the shots with Charlie helping Meadow to learn to blow bubbles, and the ninth image is, I think, the strongest of the bunch. He's so concerned with her success!
