November 15, 2016 Lifestyle 0

There is something to be said about what we can learn from our elders. I absolutely love getting to talk with older generations and learn what life was like for them, and life lessons they have found through gained wisdom. This time I was honored to meet with Sarah and her grandmother to take three generation photos in her grandmother’s apartment. In her mid-90’s Sarah’s grandmother was still as beautiful and poised as she could be, and was a great sport throughout the session. I... Read more
