New Memories In Nantucket

  • Lobster, Blossoms and Cedar Shake

When Mary emailed us and invited us to her birthday celebration in Nantucket I had three initial thoughts… 1. I need to rearrange our schedule to make this happen, 2. I don’t own enough nautical clothing to go on this trip and 3. This would be the best way to get away from life and not worry about our house selling. Michael was on board… with everything except the whole “I don’t have enough clothes” part. That was a lie… I still have clothes from high school…. and I don’t know why. I think I have some hoarding tendencies. That’s way off topic… back to Nantucket.

When I first started writing this post… it felt weird… because I want to make sure I explain this in a way that is well received and understood. After almost 8 years in the photography industry, I have seen WAVES of trends and ideas that have surfaced and then faded and then resurfaced again. Some trends have been more technical and some trends have been more relational. Some trends are here to stay and some trends are probably on their way out. However, there has been one thing about our community that has recently resurfaced that I hope is here to stay….. community.
