build it and they will come…….

Oh, wait. Different story. Anyway, for the past several days, my youngest has been studying about different types of models in science class. So, as a natural lead in, her wonderful science teacher decided to give them a bit of hands on work to further understand how models can be beneficial, say prior to commencing a building project, or other large scale task. My daughter and her friend, chose to construct a model of their middle school….right down to the replica ‘bleachers’ made out of skewers (and obviously LOTS of glue gun glue!

They were pretty proud of themselves….and I think learned something along the way as well ๐Ÿ™‚

spreading their wings…..

As a parent, these are the days we both slightly dread, and yet also cherish…the day when our kids suddenly seem self sufficient enough to go out on their own….a little bit. I was fortunate enough to be invited to capture the wonderful bonds between this family a couple of days before the young adult kids were to set off for foreign shores to continue their studies……..the last image of the day was when I asked mom just how long it had been since they have had the house all to themselves……..They’ve got each other….I think things will be just fine ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for sharing with me

marta - I am barely making it through sending my kids to elementary school, I can’t imagine the day they leave the house! Luckily my 3 have claimed they will never leave (although I know one day they won’t be able to wait). These are beautiful captures that will be treasured for a long time. The couple image is so divine and genuine…great capture.

the photographer who stayed and stayed and stayed…….

so this session ran a wee bit long, but when you see the three subjects, it will become a little more evident as to why! these three beautiful kids were just so much fun to photograph…I think I overstayed my welcome a bit!

J, thank you for sharing your three beautiful children with me for the afternoon….and to the three littlest ones….thanks for making this session so much fun! here is your sneak peek!

miss gracie was so aptly named. even in the face of serious illness, she was bright eyed, well behaved, and, well, graceful. i was so touched when i received the call to document the waning days of this family’s beloved pet. here, i present the beautifully brown eyed, miss gracie
