|It's been over
a year since this site was updated, so sorry for the delay. Here are
end-of-2002 Family Portraits. Unfortunately, the resolution on the
disk versions the photo studio gives you are not very good, so I won't go
that route in the future and don't recommend anyone else try it, either.
|Just in case anyone needs a
refresher....back row is Frank James V (Jimmy), Frank James IV (Daddy),
Guenivere Rebekah (Genny), front row is Johnathan Stephen (Johnny to
some), Wendi Ann (Mommy).
We took these first, so everyone was in a good
mood. For the record, the floppy bunny and baby lamb in these
pictures represent the two children we lost during pregnancy, Mary Agnes
(bunny) and Matthew Joseph (lamb). Having them around the house has
provided our little ones with a good deal of comfort, and keeps their
||I liked having these
pictures taken, and this pose with just the guys was directly reminiscent
of our last family portraits taken about two years ago (click
here). It was kind of late in the day, and this trip was nearly
spontaneous, so the little ones did not have a great deal of pent up
patience to go around, it was a real trick trying to get Jimmy and John to
both look at the camera at the same time. In the top photo, he is
looking away, but it was so cute we had to keep it.
|These photos were also
somewhat similar to the last portraits, but my
goodness how Genny has grown in two years! I have fear for the up
and coming dating years....
|About this time, the
patience of the boys was depleted. We also had Molly, a friend of
Genny's, with us. John wouldn't smile for the longest time no matter
what despite Mom, Dad, the photographer, and Molly doing everything we
could to make him smile. Then suddenly he did, and Jimmy started to
go bonkers with silly expressions that Calvin would have been proud
of. The top photo is so poetic in that everyone was doing their own
thing, it seemed to me that it would make a better black and white
picture, so click here to see it
converted to b&w.
They were so patient with us dropping this trip into
their laps at the last second, and there were still $50 Target cards that
each was dying to spend, that they received for Christmas (we waited until
after the holiday to cash in on the sales), so I am proud of them for
holding up long enough to get the photos done. Leaving the studio
for Target was exciting, but John was asleep by the time we arrived there
fifteen minutes later.
