….lives my family.
My “little” brother and his sweet family welcomed my daughter and I over spring break as we celebrated Birthday Week 2013!!!
Say wha???? Birthday Week? See, we like to share in my family and why only share toys when you can share your birthday!!! On March 26th, my daughter, my nephew and I celebrated 29 (plus or minus 8 years), 10 and 6 rotations around the sun together. A couple days later, we celebrated my brother’s birthday too. We’ve long talked about trying to be together on our birthdays, however 1700 miles separates us, which sort of throws a wrench into any plans. However, this year things just fell into place. My mom even came out, so it really was a family affair. I only wish my hubby and boys could have been there too.
I brought along my Contax and took a gazillion shots. Personal work, even if it is just family is so important. I knew I wanted to get images of my brother and his family, and as you can see, I was beyond thrilled with that chance. I even got in front of the camera too. It’s never too late to snap a few images of your loved ones. Just do it before you regret NOT doing it!!!
So with that in mind, meet my family….
It never ceases to amaze me how much can change over the span of a year. This year was full of new photographic adventures starting with two amazing sessions with two families impacted by cancer. There were family adventures, sessions with friends and an overall feeling of gratitude as I expanded my portfolio. My photography is so much more than just taking pictures, it’s about connecting with people on a level that is so intimate and joyous. I am humbled by those who step in front of my camera.
Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your lives. Here’s to a brand new and successful year!
There is nothing more Americana then gathering a group of friends and heading out to the country fair. This was our 4th year attending the Hartford Fair and my first opportunity of the year to shoot my resurrected Contax. Shooting the fair on medium format film was a blast. I did not realize how much I missed this amazing camera until I saw my scans.
We wandered aimlessly through the big barns full of livestock. Horses, cows, pigs, rabbits, chickens, sheep everywhere. This fair is perfect for the kids because they can get their hands on the animals and watch different competitions. And of course who doesn’t love fair food and Velvet ice cream???
The kids rode rides, won games and brought home all sorts of prizes. I would say it was a pretty successful day!!!
