Mark photographing the boys as Washington Crosses the Delaware. Although I’ve seen the painting I couldn’t have told you the artist’s name –Emanuel Gottlieb Leutz
St. Patrick’s Cathedral. I believe the year was 1947.(Bobbie?)
30 Rockefeller Center at Night
You have to have a few posed shots, attempting to get everyone with you at the same time. HA!
On your birthday today and everyday, I wish you much love and happiness. Thirty five years seemed to go by pretty fast.
I photographed a few of my kids special toys from childhood when I took a Polaroid Transfer class.
Barker and Little Green Doggie were Matthew’s favorites.
A few pictures from the past
A few pictures from this year. Love you, Ma
Remembering when we went to the Richie Havens concerts together and you met him in the hallway at the Carnegie Lecture Hall?
Charlie (4 months) and his mom, my daughter Laura.
Happy Fourth Anniversary to Laura and James.
Baby Charlie and his parents photographed Sunday November 8, 2015.
I had fun shooting “wedding photos” six months after the wedding- June 2012
Short North – Columbus OH
You may have seen the wedding photos after the wedding on November 12, 2011 but Mother of the Bride can’t be the photographer, too.
Firsts. When you’re only four months old there are so many “firsts” to experience.
This was the first time Charlie saw birthday candles being extinguished.
Everyone sang Happy Birthday.
These are four of my own grandchildren. Should be easy, right?
Try to remain patient, I tell myself.
Don’t worry if it is not the day for a photograph.
Even if the weather is perfect and the colorful fall leaves are still on the trees.
Get kids involved in an activity to take their mind off the lens.
Two different days.
The idea is to get a nice photograph to send in a Christmas card, show how they’ve grown.
Hats make shadows on faces and features obliterated. Oops!
Solids are least distracting.
and yesterday’s attempt
You can always resort to running and jumping as I have in the past, when all else fails.
Let them make a funny face, then a serious one.
Remember it’s a bit easier WITHOUT the dogs
Impromptu, candids can come out the best
Blog post number 2,222. “Do something with twos”, my daughter suggested. Hmmmm.
“A pair of shoes?” She nixed that. Boring.
I looked up things that come in twos and there’s a list of pairs for ESL students. Can be confusing. A pair of glasses is a single item. Don’t have any dice handy. But
Made me think of playing cards but all I have is an UNO game photo from October 4th. You can see my hand, too.
Lucky us! Happy Twelfth Birthday Anna Catherine!
One October morning before dawn, you made me and Marlene happy grandmothers.
Loved by your family and friends, your loving heart and kind spirit come out in your eyes.
Twelve years flew by! Love you lots, Anna. Happy Birthday. FF Ruthie
Hula Hooper Anna video from five years ago.
You’ve seen her featured on the blog if you’re a follower.
This blog sends lots of love from your MIL on your special day! Erika is a wonderful daughter, wife, mother, friend and DIL and a beautiful person, inside and out. She ‘s really good to me and I’m so fortunate. That whole “in-law relationship” can be tricky, eh Erika? I try to be a good one, too.
(You watch, she’s going to let me know that Henry and Josie, the Airedales, would have liked their photos on the blog today, too!)
So many firsts
When you are three months old.
Today his first autumn leaf. Look!
Oh, there it is
I walked Charlie around the block today and found the ambient light under his stroller canopy.
Series of three
Baby’s first autumn.
He’s not at all worried about the next season and what it will bring.
Everything is new and wonderful.
