Anniversary Portrait

Mary Lee and Nancy celebrated their 40th Anniversary last month. They wanted to commemorate this milestone with a Portrait.

When we spoke, they told me they had never had a formal portrait taken together and asked for suggestions on how to make it special. I like to personalize portraits for my clients, so I always suggest that we use their surroundings and belongings. There will be no one else on earth with the same background or "prop" in their portraits.

They decided to have the session done at home and we found several wonderful spots to use. The resulting images tell something about these unique women and show a little of who they are.

It is also my hope, that along with a beautiful finished portrait, the clients have an enjoyable experience. It was a nice surprise to receive these kind messages after delivering their finished products.

We felt so comfortable working with you. It was actually FUN!! And who would have thought that you would be able to photograph us against some of our most colorful treasures!
Mary Lee"

"So far, all of the folks to whom we've given pictures have been delighted with them--as are we!!!!
Thanks again,

Daffodil Day with Avery and Lilly

What a beautiful day for portraits in the park!

The Hall Family heard about Daffodil Days through Our session in the flowers at the park was so much fun. The girls are so sweet and they were perfect subjects in their beautiful yellow dresses.

I've added a couple of "artistic impressions" for variety. It was so nice to work with this lovely family.

Love this vintage look!
