And So It All Begins

One fateful day in August 2009, a sweet neighbor suggested to a mom she give me a call. Seems this mom of two adorable little girls was desperately seeking a place to have their photographs taken. The mall shops were busy and "not quite right", but she didn't know where to turn. After a quick call, this brave mom put the fate of her daughters' portraits in my hands, and so it all began.

This is obviously not the full size image, but I still had to share.  Aren't they dolls?!? And sweethearts to boot!

Squeezes and Giggles and Love

It gets better!

1.  The new camera and portrait lens I ordered was due to arrive in a week or so.  The mom said, "I'm sure what you have will be fine."   Five minutes after I hung up with her, UPS was at my door with my new goodies!

2.  The usual overbearing midday August sun was perfectly overcast!

3.  It was the next day I realized the date on the camera invoice was... my mom's birthday.  She's still looking out for me.  :  )
