Green Porch Swing

The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation that you ever had.

I love shopping for antiques!  Yesterday I had lunch with a dear friend and went antique shopping.   That is when I saw it - the green porch swing hanging up high at the store.  I have been to this store a thousand times and never noticed it!  After negotiating with the store owner it was mine!  Of course getting down from where it was displayed for the last year was interesting.  Well I didn't actually get it but I was there for moral support.  I could not wait to bring it home and take pictures.  Luckily, my daughter and her best friend were available for some modeling.  I just love it!  I wonder where it came from and what wonderful conversations it witnessed.  I have a feeling this swing will be in many more photographs.

Sneak Peak of the D Family

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive.

I always enjoy photographing my good friend's children.  I have watched J and G grow up.  Miss J and my daughter were in preschool together and have stayed friends ever since.  It amazes me how much they have changed since those days.  We had fun today laughing and singing songs. Of course chasing G around the yard gave me quite a workout!  Here are a couple of my favorites so far.

A Special Opportunity

Heaven give you many, many merry days.
~William Shakespeare

I had an opportunity to photograph my sister's wedding.  I am children and family photographer so this was something new for me.  I feel like I learned a lot from the experience and had a great time doing it.  I wish David and Chrissie all the happiness in the world.  Thank you for letting me document your special day.  Here are a couple of my favorites.
