Another hot Georgia day, and another awesome family!  Roderick, Selena & Mason were such good sports with the heat being around 95°.  But in truth I can’t say enough about Mason.  What a doll of a baby!  He was just so cute and so alert to everything that was going on around him.  He never cried or fussed at all.  Roderick & Selena made one fine baby I would say.

But as we all know – the “We Honor You” sessions are done in honor of our military that are deploying to Afghanistan or other ‘imminent danger’ areas.  So when Roderick returns Mason will be almost 1 yr old and so handsome!  I hope that the images of their little family carry Roderick through the upcoming times of his deployment when he is longing to see Selena and Mason.  Roderick, we here are ‘Lorrie Kennedy Photography’ ask for many blessing upon you and we pray for your safe return to Hinesville, Ga.  Selena, hang in there lady and know you have our support!

I hope you enjoy a few of the images of this family.

I am taken aback by the smile of the face above…a day so bright…it doesn’t fit.  It turns my stomach as I type this.  The profoundness of one book, the ability to change one’s perspective of a day, of a myriad of days…

I don’t steal mind you, and I never really would, but just once in a while you read a book that you KNOW belongs on your book shelf, for all eternity…never to return to the cold shelves of the library. It’s got your tear stains on it, your gasp held in it’s pages…those words are a part of you…”The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak.  Read it knowing that you will never be quite the same.  The characters ever etched in your mind to show themselves when least expected..to remind you of life, of dying, of pain…and especially with the question…’how can something so ugly and so dark be hideously beautiful?’

After reading this work of pure talent, come back…talk to me.  Tell me what you felt, what you know will ever be in your soul.  Show me the scenes that, for you, were so very clear.  Tell me the moment in which your life was changed.  Then, delve into the images here…can you see it?  Can you see what I was feeling…when I felt the strongest, numbing need to capture, for all time, the ‘book’ that captured me?  Do you see why these images were taken the way they were…share it with me if you do.  I would love to know that you recognize a semblance of what I felt.
