Somewhere in Ohio

Somewhere in Ohio, recently someone turned 70!  And we had a great party!  It is so much fun when there is a surprise party….and the person that it is for, is actually and truly surprised!  It doesn’t happen very often.  But MacKenzie pulled it off!

This warm celebration was on the verge of a major snow event there in Northwestern Ohio.   We were so excited to return to Ohio to help Mike Lucius celebrate his 70th birthday.  This guy!  So many memories!  Some of which I have no idea, since this was my husband’s friend since grade school….I am much younger!  He was in our wedding some 46 years ago.  You can see him and Michael yucking it up about some of their “adventures!”  I think they were recounting a particularly hilarious one that had to do with golf balls, roman candles and a washing machine!  I think you had to be there….though the story is very unusual.

He has been an exemplary friend, husband, father and grandfather.  And since he is an old guy,  he has the distinct privilege of being a Great-grandfather as well.  I was able to capture quite a few images of the many friends and family that were gathered to watch him blow out the candles!

We were honored to have been there, Luke, to celebrate with your family and many friends.  Many more happy years to you!

Greenville Family

Such a providentially appointed site for a family photo shoot!  It is the oldest bridge in South Carolina…said to be haunted!  It was a perfect setting for an extended family shoot.  Such gorgeousness!  We don’t get to see our Greenville family very often and those little guys keep getting bigger and bigger.  I have to capture pictures every time I have an opportunity!  There are a few from our walk to River Walk as well.  It has been so long, everybody was sure ready….well, almost everybody! LOL  Enjoy the pics!

Sweet 16 Hannah!

I have found that I very much enjoy capturing images of seniors in high school!  This is new for me as I normally take pictures of children and families.  These “kids” – soon to be adults are so much fun to be with and so very cooperative.  Hannah will be graduating in June.  I was so happy to be able to capture images of her during her last year in high school.  Looking forward to what next year has for her as she embarks on what the Lord has for her as she begins the next chapter — that of college.  Enjoy your images, Hannah!
