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.

Young Playwright's Festival Day 1

I had the joy of working along side all for One Productions with their annual Young Playwrights Festival.  This was not the first one I have photographed, but it has been a couple years (thanks to a pandemic...).  I really enjoyed seeing so many families coming together to watch the productions of the winning plays and encourage all the young actors who brought the plays to life.  The first night is always pretty cute as it is the work of the younger kids in the lower divisions whose stories are fairly simple but often showcase great imagination.

Young Playwrights Festival is such a wonderful program that has been operating for over a decade and provides a unique opportunity to students grades kindergarten through 12 to learn how to write a play and get a good look at the work needed to bring a play to life through a performance.
