We swam and fished, walked the dusty road, played with the other summer kids…real sticky, sunshiney, summer goodness. She was a grandkid here. And then they were […]

It’s really cold here….so cold that it’s been sort of a questionable outside shooting experience. Oh, the kids are fine…I’m a big complainer though.

Photo day can be unpredictable. It is usually the day where your child wakes up uncharacteristically at 5am, gets a big scratch on the face the night before, refuses to nap/snack/dress/brush hair/any and all of the above….it is also the day they usually choose to make a liar out of you. Sofia’s mom told me she loved […]
