Speaking at Cypress Wesleyan Church's Mom Connection

Monday evening and Tuesday morning, Beth and I had the opportunity to make a presentation to the Mom Connection group at Cypress Wesleyan Church on Alton-Darby Rd. in Hilliard. Both groups were terrific. They start their get together with a potluck and kindly invited us to join them. I gotta tell you, there are some outstanding cooks at Cypress! Dinner buffet on Monday, breakfast buffet on Tuesday, diet on Wednesday. It sure was worth it!
We started with a slide show of some images from out sessions. Then the presentation covered information about how to photograph your children and a question and answer period that covered technical and camera questions.
It was great to meet all these wonderful ladies and we so appreciate the invitation to speak.

Snow Day Special

Can you believe all the snow?!! Today's snowfall is just beautiful! I love soft, big flake snows. Actually, I love coming in from outdoors, building a fire and sitting on the couch with a good book and an afghan. Add a hot cup of tea and you have one happy photographer!
I have always loved snow pictures and have a blast photographing people in the snow. However, Mickey is stealing all my seniors outside. He likes snow angels and snow ball fights. (FYI No snow ball fights with camera in hand!) So, since so many kids are out of school for snow days, we are offering a special on outdoor pix. Check out the special pricing and give us a call.

100 Years of Tradition

My Great-Grandma passed away in 1956. My Grandma told me a million stories about her, her father and siblings.
As a very small child, I remember being in her dining room and seeing this huge plant in the archway. Of course, I was really little so I am not real sure how big the plant was. When Great-Grandma passed on, the plant, a Christmas cactus, went to my Great Aunt Loretta. She said her mother told her she got the Christmas cactus at the turn of the century when she began having children. My Grandma was born in 1905and was the 6th of 9 children. When Aunt Loretta died, several years ago,the cactus came from Illinois to me.
Well, the plant is still surviving and believe it or not, it blooms every Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. It is just beautiful and amazes me continually that it has flourished for so long. One hundred years and still blooming. Wow.
