The warmer and sunnier months of 2011
It was almost May when Katie and I flew to Maryland for the workshop at Angie's home.
What a trip!!
Cheryl came to the workshop. She picked me up at the airport.
She got to know the real me, super fast.
I think she still likes me.
What a crazy trip! The weather was horrendous.
The tulips didn't seem to mind.
I gave a workshop to a group of really wonderful women in May here in Wisconsin.
I pinned and pinned and baked and pinned.
Katie helped me experiment with lens lengths and facial distortion.
Asher found his voice...in the middle of a wedding where daddy was standing up.
Matthew, who never wants to offend or displease anyone, was horrified by his noisy baby.
Grandpa took him to the nursery.
I took Emily's Senior pictures in July.
She was just accepted to Wheaton and is super happy about that!
Her mom is AmyJ from the comments!!
