So there is this church.
On the hill.
I call it the hidden gem. You can easily miss it when you drive up the hill on Dyers Pass Road as you whizz past this old stone building on your right. When you are driving down the hill, you can’t miss it at all. Like a “grande dame” it greets you with grace, elegance and beauty and the massive flower beds in front of it are like an always changing sparkling carpet of admiration…
When I was asked to portrait the Cashmere Presbyterian Church including all the activities that take place in these walls, I was curious as a church has its own soul, woven by all the stories and emotions that have taken place in there. A church is a bit like a village. And the priest is in my opinion like a Mayor. The mayor of this church is Reverend Silvia Purdie and she is full of energy and vision. She wanted to create a vibrant modern website that invites people to browse a little bit, to see all the facilities and to bring people even more often together in this community. And for that she wanted a professional portrait – to tell its own story. You probably know me by now – I love to capture the soul and connections of people, and a church has its own soul.
May I introduce to you the “grande dame” of Cashmere Hills – Cashmere Presbyterian Church – and by the way a beautiful place to get married…
Au revoir grande dame. Je reviendrai une autre fois.
(Good bye grande lady. I will come back another time.)
