Winterized

“This is me in the picture at the age of 12 or 13. It was common in our family to take pictures in the snow, wearing only bathing suits. I guess we liked to show off how tough we are. It’s always funny to see people’s reactions when they see this picture between other sweet pictures of my childhood.”

Terrible Twos - Family Portrait

Terrible Twos

“Some family members decided it’d be great to get a bunch of kids together for a group portrait for the grandparents. The entire idea ticked off my barely two-year-old to no end, and for whatever idiotic reason we thought we could cheer her up by taking some portraits of just her with an oversized “two”–she’s always been a little model for the camera. She actually started with a smile but as soon as the photographer went to snap the picture she just a meltdown. The photographer immediately went to erase the digital image but I yelled “NO, I WANT THAT ONE!” The result was what I’ve always coined “pretty much the ultimate portrayal of a two year old.” You have to love the gleam of the tear coming down the face.

My daughter is 9 years old now and I still have an 8×10 of it displayed in the house. She thinks it’s the greatest picture in the world.”

The Surrender - Family Portrait

The Surrender

“Our perfect family photo shoot was only a little hampered by my 2 year old granddaughter who decided to throw a complete fit during the sitting. We gave up trying to get her to look good and let her ‘do her own thing.’ She ended up at the bottom of the stairs and we went on without her…so to speak.”

Buggin’ Out

“This is me at my grandparents’ lake house.  I used to get a real kick out of insects landing on me.  I had a budding career as an entomologist at that time… a hair stylist, not so much.”
