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!

It is that time of the year again!

The most wonderful time of the year!  School has begun once again.  Where did the summer go?  Since Owen was starting first grade, I started taking back-to-school pictures at the beginning of school.  It is enjoyable to go and look back at how little the kids were when starting different grades.  I do like these so much better than the normal school pictures that they take at school.

I enjoy personalizing them with little school momentos I have around my house.  I use different desks that I have, one being one my mother would have sat in when she was in elementary school, and another I have had for some time sitting around my house.  Every year I try to change up some of the props to make them interesting.

This year there were three here locally who went to school.  I had such a good time recording their pictures for the year!  School-aged children are so much fun.  These guys are so used to Mimi clicking pics of them, they know right what to do, even little Padraig gets it!

Perhaps you might be interested in having some unique school pictures of your children or grandchildren.  I am running a special right now…check out my business page on Facebook and send me a message or email.  I would love to make an appointment for you!  Here is a collection of images that I have taken for the last three years.

Honk – He’s 90 Today! Happy 4th of July!

Recently our family gathered in Ohio to celebrate my FIL 90th birthday.  He was born on the fourth of July.  As hot as it is in Ohio in July, I can only imagine how uncomfortable his mother was that day as they went for a buggy ride.  He was born at home on the farm.

I love theme parties.  It was Mary

Jo’s idea that we all dress up and decorate for the fourth of July.  Everyone had such a great time together, celebrating and honoring Dad.  We could help but get a few portraits as well, which for me is something I love to do.  There are a few really interesting scenarios for several portraits this year.  See if you can catch them!
