Day 34 - 1947

This photo of my mother-in-law, Norma Garrett, was taken in 1947 by my father-in-law, Carlton Garrett. She was 19 years old and they had been married less than year. Carlton was an amateur photographer and would spend the next 67 years documenting their relationship and family. I’ve spent time recently pouring through his archive to document Norma’s beautiful life for her memorial service.

There’s a lot I like about this photograph, the lighting, the composition, her expression, the way she’s holding her hand, and of course that dress and those fabulous pearls.
