Saying Goodbye

I was recently asked to photograph clients and friends of a colleague from work.  For those who might not know, (my day job) is working as a marketing and social media consultant for Gustave White Sotheby's International Realty in Newport, RI.  As the eyes and ears of the office, I love to see the relationships each realtor curates and nurtures with their clients.  As you can imagine some of these relationships turn into special friendships through the years.  

One such friendship was developed by Michelle Drum  and Kim Fleming and their clients that are leaving for a new adventure in Iceland.  As a goodbye gift, I came in to photograph special details of their extraordinary home, the lovely couple themselves, and their enigmatic companion "Topaz," a 25+ year old blue and yellow Macaw.
