The trip had been 2 years in the making.  Much planning and plotting had been done via g-chat, Sean and I burning the midnight oil while Gladys ordered lunch on the other side of the world.  Our trip to China to photograph Gladys and Henry had been “in the future” for so long that it seemed hard to believe that it was actually happening a couple of weeks ago!  And yet, roughly 25 hours after taking off from the Nashville airport, we found ourselves in Beijing with Seven and my best friend Rachel in tow.  We finally got to meet the wonderful people we had had a running dialogue with for 2 years and they did not disappoint.  It was an amazing trip and Gladys and Henry had us absolutely spoiled with their warmth and hospitality!  I wasn’t sure what to expect from China, but I have to say I’m totally taken with it.  The Great Wall is an amazing sight, and the residences of the old Emperors are just…wow!  With our lovely couple there was no way the trip was going to be anything but a success!  We’re so excited to work on the images!  They are ah-mazing if I do say so myself! ;0)  Gladys and Henry, you guys are spectacular!  Thank you so much for having us and for being such gracious hosts!  We can’t wait to see you again next year!  Until then, here’s to lots more late night/mid-morning scheming to plan our next big adventure! :0)

  3. […] our son.  While I was sorting, I came across some images from our trip to China last fall where we photographed Gladys and Henry’s Engagement/Us session.  Now that I have a little bit of ever-so-very-semi down time, I thought I’d share a handful […]
