Last year it was my privilege to photograph select patients of A Caring Touch Pediatrics and International Adoptions (ACT). My children, Ellie & Reni, are patients there (and have been since 2006) so I know first hand what personal, first class service they administer! It's an honor to partner with them in this endeavor!
Each summer ACT updates their office space with fresh portraits of their patients. The slideshow above highlights some of my favorites from each of the 30+ families photographed last spring.
If your children are current ACT patients, they are eligible to participate in this special promotion which includes a discounted session fee and 1-16x20 after it has hung in the office for one year (available for pick up June 1, 2012). There are a limited number of session openings (during the first two weeks of May), so contact me as soon as possible for the session times and locations which suit you best. Already some dates are FULL and only 4 gallery-wrapped canvas slots remain!
I had the opportunity to photograph a couple of Asbury student friends for their upcoming joint senior music recital in voice and piano, the culmination of four years of university training. The challenge for me: posing a male and female subject together who are not related (like siblings in a family session) nor dating/engaged/married. I think we succeeded in getting more than a few good shots for their posters and invitations. Here are a few of my favorites! Thanks for checking in!
It thrills my heart how much these two love each other. When we adopted Reni this past summer, we were concerned that Ellie would have a difficult time sharing her parents after having them to herself for nearly four years. Not a bit. It's like he filled a missing piece in her heart, just like he did ours. But really he didn't fill a missing piece, rather, he GREW our hearts. We're absolutely smitten with our little guy. And by "we", I mean me and my better half: Nathan. We joke that his first valentine's gift for me was an iced-tea maker. And I was really happy with the gift. Isn't that funny? That's the kind of practical girl I am. And he knows it -- who I am and what I like -- which is just one of the many, many reasons I love him. I love you, Babe!
