LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the people in this post that consist of my son’s family and Danielle’s mom and sister who were here on vacation for MJ’s 6th birthday. Woo hoo! Happy birthday MJ (now known in Kindergarten as Matthew by his choice). Angie, Danielle’s mom, moved back to Maryland this past May to spend time with her mom while Meagan, Danielle’s only sibling, moved to work in the Washington DC area a few months before that. It’s been a transition for Danielle and the boys to have them so far away but they text and talk daily so thank goodness for our instant technology. It was a crazy, busy, and fun week for them preparing for MJ’s party on Saturday, seeing friends, watching the boys play soccer (at 7:40 AM), taking a birthday trip to Linder Farms, and getting family pictures to mention only a few of what went on. They went back home on Wednesday, no doubt exhausted but sharing the memories of the week once back to their new homes. As for the photo session, it was a perfect night with beautiful cloudy skies at a beautiful location. I will warn you that this is a longer post than normal, but I didn’t want to stop. Besides, they were treating me to dinner afterwards and I wasn’t quite hungry yet so kept stalling with more pictures. I don’t recall one single complaint. 🙂 Dinner at Casa Mexico was extra fun afterwards and knowing these images will create smiles for years, I am a happy girl. Love you all!

And this is what cool in a 6 year old looks like.

Ok I PROMISE I wasn’t stalking your site!! I was getting on to email my grandma Mj’s birthday post and I was totally surprised to see these! LOVE LOVE LOVE them, and I’m so excited to have so many great pictures of the people I love. They turned out even better than I could have ever imagined. You have a true talent, and I’m blessed to have you. Love you and thank you again 🙂

That’s OK Danielle, I love blog stalkers. 🙂

Stalker #2 here. These are wonderful! Such a nice-looking family, and it’s good to see Angie. If she’s still here, please say hi for me.

No Vince, they were here Wednesday to Wednesday, but I’ll still pass it along.

I love these people and these pictures. Do you do something extra-special when you love the subjects? Actually, now that I think about it, you might love all your subjects!

Now that is one good lookin’ family. Where is the site? I’m glad you got one of you and Mike in there.

Fairly Candid - October 26, 2015 - 7:47 AM

Possibly true Linda … I do get into my sessions!

The site was at a beautiful location Kathy, just like my post said. Ha! (Photographer’s secret!) Yes, I was happy to have a picture too. It doesn’t happen as often as you’d think.
