About Cynthia & George from the photographer:
Some things just go together. Peas in a pod, salt and pepper, peanut butter and jelly, George & Cindy. From the moment I started our session, I think they kind of just forgot I was even there & just enjoyed each other.
When you see REAL love like that, it forces you to reflect on your own life. And, I was reminded of the importance of quality time with your loved ones, and remembering to enjoy the moment. Cindy and George – thank you both for the friendly reminder to live (and enjoy living) in the present.
Now, I must warn you. If you look THIS happy and in love, I’m going to need an explanation. Because I’m impressed (and I LOOOOVE a good love story). After enjoying watching Cynthia and George enjoy each other, having such a nice time together, I had to get the story. So, I interrupted their martini date to get the details on how their story started:
George told me how much he liked Cynthia, but that she didn’t know that he liked her, so it took him forever to ask her out. When they finally went out (they met at a coffee shop) they talked for over 4 hours. She still regrets not giving him a hug goodbye….And when she said that, my heart just melted into pieces, because I’m pretty sure that’s the best regret I have ever heard.
Cindy told me during their session that ever since George has gotten sick, Chance has been right by his side- day and night (he even switched whose side of the bed he sleeps on).
When she told me that, my heart swelled and wrenched all at once. George has stage 4 lung cancer. He’s undergoing chemotherapy. He and Cynthia know that their time together is limited. They’re enjoying every moment together. And, their sweet dog understands that George needs extra cuddles these days.
