Halfway Through 2007

Can you believe we’re halfway through the year already? This has already been one of my favorite summers and years ever. All the rain we’ve had has put a damper on business, but it’s sure helped us to unwind and enjoy the change of pace. I don’t know that I’d change a thing about this year so far. The real highlight has been the opportunity to work from home more and spend so much time with my precious family every day. I really expected there to be more down-sides to working from home, but it’s been surprisingly easy and a great fit for us.

Here are highlights from a couple of recent sessions. First the Woiwode family, return customers who have us photograph their family reunions. It’s amazing to see four generations of their family gather in one place for pictures! I think that’s pretty uncommon to see these days.

Isn’t that huge tree a great backdrop for photos?

The whole gang! It was the great-grandmother’s birthday. If I remember correctly, she turned 92!

Then we have Julie and her fiancee Raymond, who I insisted on calling Harris and Wilson the entire shoot. We’ve had an interesting string of customers named combinations of those three names, so I was a hopeless mess. Sorry, Wilson! (okay, just kidding that time! =)

We’re excited that we will be photographing Julie and Raymond’s wedding this fall. They were a great couple to work with and their wedding day is going to be a lot of fun, I can tell already. Working with such nice people really makes a huge difference in my own personal enjoyment of what I do, and I think the pictures from the day turn out better with those kinds of couples as well.

Although it did rain a little bit today (is this the 24th consecutive day of rain? I think I lost count.) the sun made a rare personal appearance for a couple of hours. It was glorious! You should have heard the lawn mowers going, though! Everyone was out trying to hack back their grass before the next rain comes in. Looks like the rainy season is over, though. The forecast looking pretty clear for the next 10 days. Time to get some more photos sessions on the schedule!
