Eclipse

We went for the shows — not the Eclipse — but for the Starlight Theater shows “Beauty and the Beast” and “Guys and Dolls”. We booked months ahead, reserving three camp spots for Friday and Saturday nights … then it hit us that we were going to be in Crouch which was considered almost on […]

Awesome pictures, Mary! What a wonderful experience for you.

I got to see 30 seconds of totality after hiking north of Bogus and I was awe inspired by that. I would definitely drive the distance to get longer in totality, if I got another chance.

I love the pictures with the colander – what a great idea!

Thanks for sharing!

Hey Bobbi! So fun hearing from you! I’m glad to hear you are still hiking and I agree that some was better than none for the experience. There were some in Boise who seemed disappointed and waited for what they were seeing in the news but of course that didn’t happen. The coolest part was seeing the diamond ring at the very end of the blackout. Thank you for checking in. It gave me a nice memory of you that made me smile. Take care.

Cole at Two

Aw, sweet little Cole. He turned two in May so I got right on it to photograph his milestones. Errrch. Not. It finally occurred to me the other day that we’d never done it, so here we are. He’s only gotten cuter these past few months, talks more, rides his scooter faster (thus the scuffed […]

Oh he’s just a doll. You captured his sweet personality perfectly and described him to a T. Thanks for always making sure he can’t use “I’m the THIRD child” card…at least with grammas camera. Love you!

Oh so sweet! Love the smile, love the eyes, particularly love the pic with his hands in his pockets. That expression says it all. Sweet boy! Congrats Mom and Dad. Happy 2 yrs plus Cole! Great job on the pics Grandma!

Beautiful beautiful little boy! He reminds me of our Casey when he was that age…so blonde with bright blue eyes! You did a great job Mary! He is so adorable 🙂

Rob - August 9, 2017 - 1:20 PM

Thank you for capturing my replacement in such an amazing way! I keep telling Megan that if I die at least she now has Cole to take care of her. When I use to say that with the girls she’d say “stop that”. Now she just says “you’re right!”. ;o) You do great work Mary!

Thank you Gloria and Cody for the sweet comments on this little guy. Cody, I could see where you would think of Casey with the blonde hair and blue eyes. And Robby, you say it like it is. Ha! So do you Megan. You are both raising a sweet loving and fun loving boy.

I can not believe how he has changed. Wow Great job Mary. My favorite ones are the ones with his beautiful momma. Can’t help but smile while looking at that adorable face.

Linda J. - August 10, 2017 - 1:26 PM

He sure is a cutie with tons of personality! You can almost read his thoughts in his expressions.

Fairly Candid - August 10, 2017 - 11:00 PM

Thank you Vickie and Linda. He is a fun one for sure … but then all my g-babes are. Lucky gramma over here.

LoraLee and Lee - August 14, 2017 - 8:53 PM

Oh Mary, these are such wonderful pictures of this darling, angelic little guy!!! My favorite picture is the one with hands in his pockets!! You are the Queen of photogaphy. Love you Dear Ones

Fairly Candid - August 30, 2017 - 7:15 AM

Lora Lee, I missed this earlier and it’s so nice hearing from you! Wish you were closer to see each other more than every year or two. I’ll write an email soon. Love you.

Megan - September 30, 2017 - 9:10 PM

A tired mama with a headache should not look at her baby boy at bedtime while listening to slow Sam Smith music. That has blubbering Kleenex mess written all over it.

The Mouser’s

It was such a nice surprise to get a text asking about availability to photograph Mike’s brother’s family. Heck ya, I’m available! This week has both a birthday for Vickie and a 31st wedding anniversary for her and Mark. Jacob, their oldest, and his cutie-patootie wife, Katie, just recenty celebrated their 6th wedding anniversary, and […]

Thank you Mary. We had a great time. We appreciate you. It is obvious that you love photography. It shows in your work. You got some great shots. Love those kids.

Fairly Candid - August 7, 2017 - 11:04 PM

Thank you Vickie, that was all so very nice of you to say. You have a great family with much to be thankful for.

Megan - August 8, 2017 - 7:48 AM

What a bunch of gorgeous faces. You all look wonderful! Nice work Mom.

Kathy G - August 8, 2017 - 10:47 PM

Wow, that is one photogenic family! As usual, it made me happy just to look at the smiling faces in these compelling pictures.

Rob - August 9, 2017 - 1:25 PM

That’s a good looking family! I can’t believe those kids are grown. My favorite is the last one with them holding hands and laughing. Nice job!

Lila and Luke

Lila just turned 6 and will be going to first grade and her brother, Luke, is now 4 and in pre-school again this fall. I love photographing these two each year — usually one at a time — but  this year time got away from mom so I was thrilled to get to photograph them […]

Great pics! Almost makes me wish I had little ones again just so you could take their pictures.

Tracey - August 3, 2017 - 8:27 AM

Oh Mary what Darling Children. They photograph so well.
I bet you had a great time.
