Matt's Senior Pics

Meet Matt. He's been on the blog before during basketball season and is one of this year's seniors. His mom Tracy and I also work together. This past weekend, they had me out to their home. It is so relaxing! They have a big pond and a lot of patio space. The mesquitoes however were not so accomodating. Tracy followed me around with a shirt to fan the mesquitoes off me while I follwed Matt around taking pictures. We must have looked pretty strange, but it was a good time.

Meagan and Johnathan's Maternity Photos

This is Meagan and Johnathan. They are having a baby boy in six weeks! I actually met them through my friend Mandi and we really clicked at our photo session Tuesday night. She and Johnathan were fun to hang out and shoot pictures with, and that always makes a session more enjoyable. They are going to be great parents!

Meagan is a first grade teacher, and this is her favorite children's book, already waiting for their child.

Taking this picture was kind of funny because their dog Teddy kept trying to run all over them. Laying on the floor means play time!!

The Pelletiers

The Pelletier family are close friends of ours. The youngest son, JP, and my husband Jonathan have been best friends since college and we were invited to his parents' house recently for a cookout. This is the first time in a couple years the whole family has been in one spot at one time, so we tried for a family photo. With 5 kids and 6 grandkids however, that turned out to be a bit of a spectator sport for me. It was quite entertaining, until we finally got the shot above with everyone in it....or so we thought....as we were taking this picture, another child emerged from the garage, blissfully unaware (or blissfully aware) that he was missing the photo.

So we tried again....

This is the second-oldest son Jimmy. He was on leave from his second tour of duty in Iraq.

Look at those kids! What a great family. Six kids and one on the way.

And of course, one of our chefs, Pat, cooking up some really good ribs....
