60th Birthday: Great living with 6 decades of Blessings

Everyday is a blessing to be celebrated. With the uptick and rise of COVID-19, we lose track of the great things we have experienced. Sadly everyone is not making it to see another day. Milestones of a birthday should be embraced even greater with the new uncertainty of life. When Debora told me she wanted to have a 60th photo shoot, I quickly jumped at the opportunity to help make her vision come true.

Being a product of Corona, New York, I knew my hands would be full with trying to make the “CITY GIRL” satisfied. Although she moved down south and attended Voorhess College, I was going to try and channel my inner creative spirits to exceed her expectations. So off we went to the South Carolina State House. After Debora, hit the scenes for her first shot, I was like, “Hmm. Where do we go next?”

She was in the moment. With the help of Debora’s sister, Yolanda, we were able to find our groove and create some breath taking images.



Debora, the mother of 3 and grandmother of 11, planned a birthday party and travel to Las Vegas for her celebration. She has always been a straightforward and gentle person, since meeting her years ago at our church, Brookland Baptist Church. Yes, I can sing. 🤦🏾‍♂️. I pray her 60th birthday, which was December 19, was grand and all she hoped it would be.

Well, this is where I get off. Chat at you. Be ez … click clique.

Not 1, Not 2, Not … but 58 Years of Bliss!!!

For a whopping $0.31, a gallon of gas was yours.  There was a baby boy born that went onto become the 44th president of the United States, while answering to the name of Barack.  A young Seward found it not a crime to make a stunning Barbara his wife.  The year was 1961 and life was good in Hemingway, South Carolina.

From that union, life was greater than great.  Seward, a high school principal/chemistry teacher played golf in his free time and accepted the additional role of Daddy, over the following years.

A Licensed Practical Nurse, Barbara thrusted herself into church/community service and became the ideal mother for little ones.

Time was on their side and God allowed the couple to see life take form in 5 children: D’Ette Weaver, Adreane Grant, Bernita Stuckey, Seward Weaver, Jr. and Sherwood Weaver, Sr.

Although Sherwood passed at an early age, his life is still cherished and the family bond remains strong.

My session with the family was nothing short of fun.  Seeing the chemistry of the couple was great after being together over 50 years!  They fed off of each other for energy and admiration.

I WEAVEDd out some astonishing pictures while capturing the Weavers.    Grateful to have snapped the pre-anniversary photos, the couple was quite funny when getting their “5” and “8” together.
