Always love what you do, whether career or hobby! Happy #WorldPhotographyDay!
Cancer is terrible, but childhood cancer is awful. Thankfully, this little one beat cancer and is helping others do the same! I am so grateful to have shot this event. Check out the finalized photos➡️ https://www.scottryanphotography.com/Love-McKinley-2019
Sometimes, many things happen in our lives to remind you life is precious. We needs these reminders. Today, I went to pay my respects to a 12-year-old and her family that I have known for years through teaching. I am so grateful I got to see this little girl eight weeks ago. To say I was emotional this evening is an understatement, but so blessed to have known her during her short time here. Rest In Paradise, Elizabeth. ❤️
Back to chasing sunsets...Redington Shores, Florida is right down the road, and thank goodness it is!
Happy 70th Birthday to my Dad. I love you so much! I took this picture this evening of my last Indiana sunset for a while. And tomorrow I go home and will catch the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico tomorrow or Sunday! Looking forward to that salt air again.
The Salt Life Is Waiting...
One day closer to where I need to be...And you are, too.
Happy 1st Birthday to my nephew, Beckett. His smile, laugh, and love just takes your breath away. I love you so much, kid! ❤️
Yesterday was my second year doing the photography for this special cancer event. This girl has been through much more than most of us will ever go through, but she beat cancer and helps others do the same. Love you, McKinley, and family! ❤️
This year has easily been my best and worse all in the same time, but I know God has me in the palm of His hands, just like you!
It has been a draining last few days for my family and I, but Granny had such a beautiful calling with hundreds of people. Her funeral was more of a celebration with tears, and although she will be so lovingly missed, she is now at peace and healthy again! Thank you for all of the prayers and support these last two weeks! This note I wrote was tucked into the mason jar full of sand and shells collected from my first Florida beach when I first visited Florida with her in March 2011. This note and mason jar went into her casket just before her final resting spot. I love you so much and miss you so much, Granny! ❤️
This is easily the hardest trip I have experienced, but the 31 years spent with Granny was forever worth it. I am only in Indiana for 48 hours before heading back to Paradise that I now call “Home”. I know the time spent celebrating her will be magical, throughout all the sadness. I am just so grateful the time I spent with her, and forever-grateful for my first trip to Florida with her in 2011. A year later, I moved here, saw her last before driving 16 hours south from Indiana to Florida, and I haven’t looked back. Fitting enough, my last sunset photographed and witnessed was just hours after she passed from my first beach I stepped on in Florida: Treasure Island. I planned it this way after she passed. But I want to give my final condolences to her before I witness another Florida sunset, because that sunset was very beautiful through all the tears. Please pray for us, as these next few days will be very hard and bittersweet. I love you, Granny, so, so much! ❤️
I started Scott Ryan Photography a year ago today. Today is the first day without Granny in my life, but she always loved my photos (including this photo from yesterday at Treasure Island in honor of her). And I know she will have a say-so in making sure my photography reaches those I never could have dreamt. Reality hasn’t really kicked-in with me yet she is no longer physically-here, but I know it will once in Indiana this week. I am just so grateful for all of you that have reached out to our family during this time of heartache. We love you so much, and Granny did, too! I love you and miss you so much, Granny! ❤️
Granny: You were my biggest hero, supporter, and best friend. I will miss the laughs, visits, and having you around. I know you will always be with me spiritually, and I am forever grateful for that. The Reds beat the Cubs today, and we always enjoyed that, so I know you played a hand in that game! This sunset photo this evening is from Treasure Island, the first beach I ever visited in Florida. But you remember, right?! You were so annoyed that night (3/12/2011) after we drove 16 hours-straight to Florida and I had everything so quickly-unpacked and took off to the beach with excitement that you weren’t able to write down the mileage in your notebook before I left. But you forgave me. I am so glad I first-experienced Florida with you, and that you were the last person I saw before moving to Florida 5/14/2012. In your casket will be a bag with sand, shells, and salt water from the Gulf of Mexico, included with a note I will be handwriting you the next few days. You meant and will always mean the world to me. Although today will always be one of the hardest days of my life, it was worth it because of the 31 years I had you in it. Granny: I know you are 100% again, and watching Soap Operas in Heaven, surrounded by your loved ones. I love you more than you will ever know, and so glad the last time I was physically with you that we embraced each other so long with a hug, a kiss, and a kiss-blown to each other as I walked outside by your window leaving. The tears were pouring then, as they pour now sitting at the beach at Treasure Island. I love you so, so, so much! ❤️
“Rainy Season” is here! A storm approaching Redington Shores, Florida yesterday evening!
Although this picture is from Christmas Day 2018 and I weighed 60lbs. more than I do now, God (and my instinct) told me to take a picture with her: my Granny and Best Friend. I wasn’t happy with how I looked in this picture, but it didn’t matter to me. And although I take photos for a side-career/passion, I hate being in photos. Ask anyone I/we know. But for Granny, I have done and will always do anything to be the best I can be to her, just like she has done for me. Although the next few hours (and possibly days) are in God’s timing, I know He is doing what is best for her. Please pray for our family (as we would for yours; just let us know if you need them). At this point, all we can ask for is Granny being 100% again. Although tears are pouring out through this post, I have a heart so full because I had Granny in my life so long. ❤️
