Wedding Weekend

Celebrate good times, c'mon!

Wohoo!  (Insert dancing shoes here.)

My elder son is getting married this weekend.  I really like the lovely lady he is marrying.  She has moxie...just like someone else I know! (ahahahahahaha - giant belly laugh, here)

She is presenting us with two more grandchildren.  YEA!  More grandchildren to spoil!  Such fun. The Hubster and I gave the kidlets their very own wedding presents.  See...the spoiling has begun!

And yes, you are correct.  This post does not contain wedding pictures.  That will happen next week. We're all too busy partying to sit in front of Light Room for a couple hours.

As my colleague and teacher, Adam Marelli, has said; "Put experiences first and photography second."

It's happening

Soon, you will be able to purchase any photo - or all of them - in "The Black Iris" series. Or, any photo from this website if you so desire.

You will be able to select your favorite photograph(s), choose the size you want and pay for it all in one place.  Easy-peasy.

Your selected photo will be printed and framed by two valuable members of the Rebecca LaChance Art & Photography team; Carlos and Jennifer. 

The Team Members

Carlos is The Paper Whisperer.  He selects the perfect archival paper that will best bring out the layers and depths of color, structure and texture in any print.

Jennifer is the wizard of framing. She frames my photos and paintings according to the ART of the piece, and not the standard sizes.  Many of my compositions are outside of those standard sizes. Jennifer frames the prints to highlight the composition at its best.

Miss Jennifer will present your selected photo in archival mattes and glass. Not only will your print be protected from sunlight damage, it will be protected for at least 100 years.  (I plan on being around to check this out.)

Your print will become a legacy piece for your family. It can be handed down from generation to generation.

You can list it in your will..."Uncle Rufus gets the framed photographic print, Money on the Water."

Something else to look forward to

The downloadable guide "5 Tools You Need" for beginning night photography is nearing completion.  If you are on the email list, you will automatically receive the link so you can download your free copy.

The guide is written for all those people who are starting out in night and twilight photography.  It's not about what lenses or filters to use, or how long your exposure should be. It's not about capturing the Aurora borealis or the Milky Way.

The guide is about how to stay safe and comfortable while you're out in the wee hours.

Until next week

Celebrate something this weekend. Have you tried champagne with popcorn? (We're "one-upping" Olivia Pope.)

Hangout with family and friends. Enjoy cool libations. Relax in the warm sunshine.

Smile, laugh from your belly and giggle til you snort through your nose. Dangle your pinkies in the kiddie pool.

Life is short. Take time to enjoy your days and most importantly, the people who share your days.

Let us know what you're thinking.  I love reading your comments.

And please share this post on your social media.  Facebook likes when you do!

With gratitude,

Rebecca
