Hi All! I will no longer be updating things here. To keep up with me, my photography, and my art please visit http://www.dayswiththegrays.com. Thanks so much for your continued support!!! -Megan
This family was absolutely stunning on the inside and out. Everyone’s personality came out, all in good ways. Some shy. Some full of laughter. Always with love. I’m not great at writing posts, so I will post this amazing compliment from the matriarch of this clan:
“I am still processing the depth of the photos taken by you — The pix have become private and personal and emotional — i have wanted to share them with my friends and create Christmas cards etc but instead I find myself wanting to hold them closely in my heart and protect the experience — to bury the digital disc in the sand — the windswept hair – the joy in the faces that evening by the ocean will never again be repeated — Perhaps we are all realizing that time if measured and life is fleeting and that we sometimes forget to pause …for photographs ….the photo session was to be “tolerated” at best and instead the family experience became “blessed” by a spiritual power and that evening became a high point in our time spent together. All good Megan — all good – you have captured the essence of the raw connected energy In a family united for two short weeks in summertime by the ocean. Gratitude – Jan”
For me, this session has begun to restore my faith in myself as a photographer. Thank you Derstine Family for being exactly what I needed at this time.
I always have my iPhone on hand and sometimes I get my favorite images with it. This past year our family grew in numbers, height, and in love. These are just a few of my favorites from over the past year. They are a real and personal account of our everyday lives. Looking at these makes me glad that I am an iPhone addict.
