I want to share someone very special and close to my heart with you today. If you are part of the Shutterfest family you will recognize this amazing lady and if you are not I want to introduce you to her. Today I was blessed actually beyond blessed to photograph Rebecca Nash Emerson and her vibrant daughter Alyssa. My Canadian beauties!
You see I met Rebecca right before shutterfest in 2015 in our shutterfest group. We meet up at the hotel and her face was the first one I recognized. The beautiful smile and laughter, oh her laughter you will be able to pull her out of a crowd of thousands with that infectious laughter. That was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Over the years she has been my rock in our industry. Rebecca is the owner of Rebecca Nash Photography in London, Ontario. She is a wedding photographer and owns Contemporary Elegance Portraiture. She supports so many with kindness, care and constant encouragement. So throughout the years we have tried setting up meetings and this year Rebecca came to Maine. So we decided I was going to spoil her and Alyssa for a change, she is always spoiling me with love now it was my turn.
Rebecca has a heart of gold, more so she will do almost anything for anyone if she can. When I looked into her eyes as I photographed her I saw the love which was looking back at me. I saw the unwavering friendship, the laughter and the sisterhood that she had extended to me over two years ago and continues to give me. I see the most generous lady! I love her with all my heart. I see a mother who embraces her daughter with such abundance that all one can see is pure light. I hear the laughter as she makes little faces at Alyssa as to tease her a little. I see a business woman who even at this moment as we are sitting relaxing a bit she is still doing business. (Well I’m working on her lol)
If you go to shutterfest in 2018 or you see this beautiful lady on the street please give her a sweet smile and let her know how amazingly beautiful she is. I love you Rebecca. Sisterhood for a lifetime.
Here is the glimpse of Rebecca with her sweet Alyssa. Till we meet again.
