This session was an extra special one for me, and I’m glad I got permission to tell their story. Marygrace was a classmate at Ballet Austin, where I was always impressed by her persistence and unflagging enthusiasm for dance. One day in class, I found out that she was engaged and moving to Toronto! It turns out that Greg, whom she last talked to 17 years ago, contacted her on Facebook. They added each other and before long were constantly on the phone.
Marygrace said, “After my first marriage, and at my age, I wasn’t really actively looking.” She is in her fifties and not shy about it.
I asked her about Greg and she said, “Greg was married, and his wife got really sick. He took care of her the last few years of her life. I said to him that it was sad that he had to go through that so young, but Greg replied, ‘I’m glad I was young, because I had the strength to take care of her’.”
When Marygrace heard this, she knew that she found the right man.
Here they are, a few weeks after they got married. Several times during the portrait session they were so tender with each other it was breathtaking.
