I am a photographer, but mainly I am a mom. 

More specifically, a home-educator of my four lovely daughters. 

They definitely keep me busy!  

One thing is for sure, they will never be able to look back on their childhood and weep over not having their precious memories preserved in image form.  At least not the big events. 

I can’t say they are all in pretty albums and organized, but there are plenty of them!

My oldest three have participated in AZHT (Arizona Home School Theater Group) a few times over the last several years. 

It is a fantastic way to get the kids on stage and in front of an audience in a super fun and creative way. 

Everyone gets a part, and the kids get the amazing experience of working with other kids to create something incredible.  

They also learn self-confidence, to speak clearly, and how to bring to life a great literary work.

Earlier this year, they were in the production of “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”. 

It was quite an impressive performance, and it was very easy to forget these were 6-17 year old kids, some without any prior stage experience. 

There is some serious talent in this group!

The directors are inspiring, patient, and work wonderfully with the children. 

Many of the parents were involved in supporting the performance by set designing, costume creating, and much, much more, making it extra special for the kids.

My kids cherish these memories and look forward to being part of this group again.

One of the many things I love about photographing is working with friends. 

The need for updated family portraits is a great reason to get the families together, right? 

So, with my entire family in tow, and of course our family friends there for their camera time, we set off to a neighborhood park.

Soon after we arrived, it was apparent the wind might be a problem. 

“Gusty” would be an understatement! 

I was so concerned we would end up with windblown hair and closed eyes in every photo. 

They were such good sports, I made everyone stay in position until we had a brief break in the waves of wind, then I’d snap away. 

I had my daughters and husband there to tame hair, hold lights, and help keep everyone entertained (which isn’t too hard with this crowd!)

This family is super easygoing and playful, and dad always knows how to throw the family for a loop with his unexpected antics. 

Like in this cute photo of the family waiting “in pose” for the wind to die down – springing a kiss on mom stirred everyone up!

Miraculously, we managed to get some amazing photos – without hair flying everywhere! 

It took a little longer than expected, but we all made the best of it. 

And I’m sure every time they see these photos, they’ll fondly remember their windy Photoshoot
