October 15th

I usually have a very strict rule that I do not work on my birthday, but at 37, birthdays just aren’t what they used to be.  Besides that, school was out all over town, and my people needed me.  🙂  So I planted myself at Banneker Park in Oella, and my people came. 

First was the Hendrick-Holmes family.  Gauis is growing so quickly…he’ll be walking any time now!

I love this red door on the Banneker house (especially when adorable, smiling, well-dressed kids sit in front of it):

(Side note:  Dear Stride Rite (and all other children’s shoe manufacturers), Please stop making kids shoes with unphotogenic soles.  Thank you.)

And a great family shot to top it all off:

Then I met some new friends, Bryan & Jen.  These two hot tamales were willing to do pretty much anything I asked, and they got some really great stuff. 

This one was my fave:

Jen wore a great pair of shoes we needed to show off a little:

The sun was working its way down in the sky as the afternoon passed, and just set the great fall colors on fire!  Love these golden head shots of the Wilking girls:

Thats just one of those pictures where you can hear the giggling, isn’t it??

Then the girls switched outfits into their tutus, and the cute factor went sky high:

Then one last round with Ken & Shannon whose wedding I am shooting in May.  These two are so much fun, and this is one instance where it isn’t me asking them to do weird things, it is Ken who has all the crazy ideas.  I think this photo says it all:

Thanks to all who kept me busy today, not wallowing in the fact that I am getting OLD!!

The Marx Family

It has been a year since I saw Olivia, and she she is now turning five and excited about starting kindergarten!  She has grown up so much, but she is sweet and pretty as ever!  Look at this girlie:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mommy & Daddy got in on the action this time…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What a good looking group! 

We met at Benjamin Banneker Park for our shoot…it was so nice!  I didn’t even know what Benjamin Banneker did!  Sometimes I am embarassed to live in such a history-rich part of the country and know so little about things that happened here.  If you’re interested, read a little about him here.  Don’t say I never taught you anything…

Anyway…it was a great spot to learn some local history, and take pictures!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And we ended with this fun shot:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Olivia…you are an AWESOME jumper!  You should think about cheerleading!  😉
