I sat on the antique couch – watching the fireplace and listening to the love story of two people that brought nearly 20 (and counting) people together. “Living a legacy” that’s what Rich always says. That’s exactly what they have created.
For those of you that are reading this – and that are close to this family – or to our church family – you’ll remember there was a man who blessed our church for some time – his name was Dick Anderson. His is a legacy that will live forever …. Rich Sewell is the “new Dick Anderson” [and not just because of the awesome sweater vests]. That doesn’t mean anything to you if you don’t know these men. But if you do, there’s not a higher compliment that can be bestowed. (also means they are incredibly humble and probably HATE that I’m saying these things)
All that to say – it was a real honor to take these photos – in this antique home in Long Beach Washington… they didn’t need many photos of themselves. This was about capturing the legacy – but we needed to get at least one. So – as I moved myself into position to take their photos – they moved themselves onto the floor and nestled in front of the fireplace together. I didn’t ask them to do that… They just did it because it felt natural and their love for one another [and everyone around them] is just natural.
It really only took one frame to capture.
