This is not the first time that Michael and Mary have been in front of my camera. Nor do I expect it being the last time. I love being able to document the different stages their life with my camera, but most of all I love being so close that we can experience life together. As we headed to market last Friday morning, Michael asked, “Who would had thought that he would be living with his wife about a mile from where I lived in the city after college.” It has been about five months since they moved to Lancaster and at times I still can not believe that my little brother and wife are living in the same town. Since moving here, Central Market has become a part of Mary’s weekly routine. Mary goes to Central Market for her weekly groceries of local fruits and veggies and beef. When we discussed location possibilities I thought of market immediately and it was perfect. We started off early Friday morning inside Central Market and then continued more pictures outside and around downtown. Michael and Mary, I love the two of you together. I love how you two love one another, are content in one another, and laugh with one another! Thank you for allowing me to document this next stage of life for you two! I am so happy there will be a little one joining you two, as it’s the best!!! ENJOY!!!
