Mother’s Day Special Moms!

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

These are some of my favorites from this year’s Mother’s Day Special.  I still have a few more sessions to go as the weather did not cooperate last weekend.

Thank you to all the moms and kids that allowed me to share time with you.  I had fun!












Family Beach Session

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

As usual, I wanted to share some of my recent images.  I went with this family to do some group portraits as well as some Senior portraits of the son who is…a senior this year.  I struggled with the sun for awhile I have to say, but was able to work with the rocks and landscape at the beach to get some really nice family portraits.  I can’t wait until my new assistant Elsie comes with me on shoots.  I can bring more equipment and use it.

Family Beach Day ends in Disaster

Saturday, August 1st, 2009

I hesitated to add this entry but felt I needed to in order to warn EVERYONE out there about an unexpected danger.  I will start by sharing a little bit of our lovely beach photo shoot.  It was a beautiful day with a family and twin 5 year old boys and yellow lab Duke.  We had already finished with most of our “on the beach play” when we headed up to the porch where the hammock was.  Some of you are already shuddering I would think if you know something that I didn’t know.  Anyway after the last shot …I mean I was done….the family of 4 that was all in the hammock together decided to do a big swing.  The board attached to the column that the hammock was bolted to, ripped from the column ( an 8 foot board) and smacked the mom in the face.  All of them fell hard onto cement and she smacked her head.  One of the little boys hurt his hand a little but was more upset about his mom when he saw the blood.  Yes, there was a good amount of blood.  Needless to say I was horribly upset as her husband drove her off to the hospital.  No one but me, blamed me.  After all it wasn’t my house or hammock but I did have them get in it.  I guess the beach air is not kind to wood and nails and maybe having a hammock over cement is not such a great idea…..  AND the guidelines for hammock safety probably include DO NOT put 4 people in this hammock unless you want something bad to happen.  I have to say that the photos turned out beautifully and her face is nothing a plastic surgeon and a great cosmetic dentist can’t fix…….I’m only half kidding. 🙁  Hammocks are B-A-D.
