Baby Bellamy Ann at 4 months

Back when we were designing our website, we chose a photo of Sally Ann and Clint for our splash page.  From the business perspective, it was a no-brainer: gorgeous couple, fun photo, very Richmond, so on and so forth.  Truth be told though, I think we chose that image for more personal reasons.  After the wedding we started hanging out and over the years this couple has laughed with us and cried with us.  Its comforting to see their mugs on our website because we’re lucky to count them among our closest friends.

Its a little strange, looking at the wedding photos that hang in their home and thinking of how we hardly knew them then.  The couple we photographed back then reminds me of what the business of weddings is supposed to be about, what it has the potential to be about.  And it makes me want to be better.  Turning the lens on Sally Ann and Clint again, four years later and as a new family, felt both familiar and daunting.  Because now, that same couple makes me think of what marriage, family, strength, faith and friendship should be about, what it has the potential to be about.  And it makes me want to be better.

And that’s a lot to want to show to Bellamy.

I’m hoping that she’ll see their wonder,
