Boys & Water Equals Fun!

Some boys just know how to have fun!  Our family was in Bowler Wisconsin visiting family.  While we were there we spent a wonderful afternoon at the Bowler Ranger Station.  A wonderful location for a photographer.  Auntie Colleen showed us the beautiful park.  She brought along her two sweet grandkids.  Brianna helped Amber and I capture senior portraits of Amber.  Of course I couldn’t resist taking pictures of the two boys.  They sure had fun playing in that stream while waiting on me.

What a Family

Yep, this is one great family!  They know how to have fun with each other.  I love seeing that and capturing it through the camera lens.  These photographs capture that fun.  I’ve known Peggy for a long time and she is one of the most devoted mothers I know.  These pictures were taken the day after Thanksgiving and I’m now just getting them posted.

A Brave Family

It’s Christmas season!  The orders are coming in and so I’ve gotten a behind on posting to the blog.  In fact I need to post some of the pictures I’ve taken recently…sometime.

For now I’m going to show the most recent family pictures.  I have to say they were Brave.  Why?  Well because it was cold out.  The wind came up which made it feel colder.  So we ended up taking the pictures inside a barn.

I love these kids…they are so cute and got personalities that match it.  They did great considering all the circumstances of the session.  The parents are awesome too.  They showed alot of patience with the kids and of course me.  hee hee.

100% Cute Kids

Taking pictures is a passion…I love it!  Every session is a learning curve because you never know what will go especially with kids.  These kids are adorable!  Of course I had to get a little creative in order to get the older boy to smile and the younger boy to look at the camera.  Below is a digital scrapbook page I created using a few of the pictures.  I also included a few pictures of each of the kids.

50th Wedding Anniversary

My parents 50th wedding anniversary was on June 2nd of this year.  Isn’t that something else?  The worlds greatest parents too!  Yep, I know I’m very biased on it.  Anyhow I’ve been wanting to post something here about it and haven’t been able to till now.

Earlier this year I asked my mother what they would like for the anniversary.  She made it very clear that they wanted it kept small and with only the family.  That their desire would be to have all their kids and their families go out and eat at a restaurant together.

So we arranged a private room at a local restaurant here on July 2nd.  This date worked best because most of my siblings come to town for the 4th of July anyway.

After we finished at the restaurant, we came out to my house, where we got pictures.  After that, we went in and watched a slide show that I put together of all the pictures of my parents as kids with their parents, and of them through the years together.   It was fun to hear them recall stories as they veiwed various pictures.

50th Wedding Anniversary

Above two Pictures:  This was taken in June as a gift for their anniversary.  The top one I like because it catches a mood that is totally them.  Happy.  The next one is the one that my mother choose because she liked it.

PhotographerThis was taken at the restaurant we ate at.  It captures them.

PhotographerThis was another precious moment captured as we were getting everyone lined up for the group pictures.

PhotographerHere is the BIG group picture of everyone who made it to their celebration.  What a group it is too.  We were missing a few of my kids and a few of my siblings kids.

PhotographerHere is me with my siblings and parents.  We really didn’t plan the picture part very well, so we were wearing clothing that really didn’t match, so turning it into a Black and White photograph was the best solution.
