My boys never want to be in front of my camera. In fact, when Austin approaches me with “Mom, do you need a good picture of me?” I know right away that he wants something! For some reason on our recent trip to Savannah both of the boys were eerily cooperative…all weekend! Austin really loved Savannah and he would find certain spots that he liked and say “this would be a perfect place Mom.” I think because he was participating in the scene selection he enjoyed the process a little more. He was even learning to find the light. Ayden, he was just obsessed with the salt water taffy so as long as that bag was around he wore a smile on his face. : )

Lisa and I share a similar story to Stacy and me. We were friends in school back in the day. Lisa said that she just happen to run across my website one day and decided to follow my work. When I received her request to schedule a session I was touched when she said that she didn’t want the “typical family portrait” but rather she wanted a portrayal of personalities and shared love and she thought I would be the person to capture that for her. Lisa, I truly hope that I was able to meet your expectations.
On this day I hope that you were all surrounded by the ones you love. I hope that your bellies are as full as mine. ;-) I hope that you ate more dessert than you should have. I hope that you hugged your children extra today. I hope that you smiled often and laughed even more. I hope that you slept in late or can turn in early. I hope that you helped do the dishes for whoever cooked your supper…or I hope that if you cooked supper someone did your dishes for you. I hope that you danced in your kitchen. I hope that you loved a little deeper today. I hope that you thanked the Lord for the food on your table. I hope that you told someone you loved them today. I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
I have said it before and I will say it again…I love Facebook! I have been able to become reacquainted with so many friends from my childhood. Stacy is one of those friends. She and I lived one street apart growing up. We were great friends throughout our elementary years. Well, we are all grown up now with families of our own but we both still look the same…me with my long brown hair and freckles and Stacy with her piercing blue eyes and blonde locks. Some things remain the same.
