A Birthday Celebration at Calhoun's on the River - Jaclyn Paige Photography

One of my favorite things about my job as a photographer is having the opportunity to meet all kinds of people.  When I covered Mrs. Milsaps' surprise 90th birthday party last weekend at Calhoun's on the River, I met one of the kindest, most loving people I have ever had the pleasure of photographing.  She was surrounded by about 50 members of her family- children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, as well as nieces, nephews, and their kids and grandkids.  Watching Mrs. Milsaps with her family, whether grown adults or small children, I couldn't help but wonder how many other lives she has touched, how many people she has blessed just by extending her arms to embrace them and giving them her warm smile.  I count myself one of those lucky people.  Undoubtedly, she loves well and is loved by so many in return.  Happy Birthday Mrs. Milsaps! --Jaclyn
