Living well when someone we love has dementia: David and Joan contributed their story about living well with dementia to my book Love Still Lives Here about a year ago. Yesterday, nearly one year after my original blog about them (3/14/17!) I spent the afternoon visiting with Joan and their son Kristan who had very interesting insight from the adult child's perspective. Enjoy!
Tuesday Tell All with Carmen Buck Photography: The Beauty of a Woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is a doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.
One of the most wonderful things about being a photographer is that I get to witness history in the making AND document it. Check out the beginnings of I Am Empowered Woman! It is only the beginning for this incredible group.
Have you thought lately, "I'd do just about anything to see that sparkle in her eyes again?" When was the last time you had family pictures taken with your elderly family members? Let's honor them with a gift that lasts for generations! It's a GREAT time too because there is a special going on!
