Jack's 6 month Milestone

Okay y'all.  I can not believe how much Jack is the spitting image of Charlie, who I first met a couple years ago for his 6 month milestone session.  Jack is a happy boy who seriously loved tummy time and rolling around on the ground.  Jack wore the same plaid shirt that Charlie wore, and I was able to recreate some of the pictures I did of Charlie.  After our time in the studio, we headed to the backyard for a little pool time.  Haha!  Jack seemed to love the water, but got frustrated that he couldn't hold onto the fruit to eat it.  Every time he got a strawberry or orange to his mouth, it managed to slip away.  You can see the look of frustration as he wrinkled his nose at me.  😅  Ugh, he's just so stinkin' cute!  😂😍

Jon's Senior Session

I was relieved that the weather cooled down a bit for this senior session.  I've known Jon for a long time, and I will say, he definitely wasn't always this cool and calm.  😂  But seriously, back when I was supposed to keep him in line (as he was a very squirrely middle schooler in those days), I often got myself in trouble for laughing at his comments and jokes instead of encouraging him to be quiet.  Although I will say, there were times when I don't think he wasn't trying to be funny but I thought he was hilarious, and I hoped he understood that I wasn't laughing at him.  Anyways, I'm proud of how he's grown up and matured as he's accepted this new stage in life called, "I guess I'm an adult now??".  😅

Congratulations Jonny!  Also, in case I haven't told you before, the beard suits you.  😊

Derby Clan

I had a wonderful morning with perfect weather to photograph this awesome family get together!  They wanted updated family pictures before the middle son and his wife got relocated to Africa for the next couple of years.  I think it's fair to say that the kids stole the show.  These girls are all so precious!  It was my first time meeting the twins and they were both quite sweet.  






I loved how they coordinated outfits and colors so well between all of the families!


I just had to include a couple of the "behind the scenes" pictures of these precious girls eating their treats for doing such a good job!

Young Playwright's Festival Day 2

The second day of the annual Young Playwright's Festival is always a bit longer as the older students in the higher divisions write plays that are more in-depth and often contain multiple scenes and set changes.  I am always amazed at the creativity that these students have and are able to translate into a play that is performed.

I have to admit that my favorite play was the winning play from the forth division called Writer's Block. It was such a simple premise that only involved 4 actors but it was so funny and well done.  It was a bit harder to narrow down my favorite pictures from all of these plays, but I managed to keep this relatively short.
