One of my favorite movies at Christmastime is “Love Actually“. If you haven’t seen it, it follows the lives of eight different couples/families in London during the month before Christmas. All of their lives are kind of intertwined, and it explores love in all of it’s various forms – between husband and wife, father and son, brother and sister, etc. The movie starts and ends at the Heathrow Airport and here is a quote from the movie:
“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.”
Loveletter Photography is my Heathrow Airport. I get to be a part of and witness so many sacred, special things:
the giddiness of being engaged….
promising each other “forever”…
precious, tiny babies….
babies turning one…
It is my honor to get to document such beautiful lives and beautiful people.
I am blessed.
And love really is all around.
Have a wonderful, merry, happy Christmas & New Year!
