My Family: Just because

My Mom and Grandma both asked for just one thing this year for their birthdays. Pictures of my family AND me. As the one behind the camera I am,purposely,  rarely (as in the last time was a year ago) ever in front of it. So to oblige the b-day wishes, my little family and I went to our favorite location and attempted to take some pics with us all in it. Of course, within the first couple of minutes my littlest one gets attacked by red ants which pretty much ruined any chance of a good group shot.  We held them still long enough to capture one very grumpy badly exposed family picture and then released the boys into the wild to just be them. Of course that is when the smiles came and the most precious pictures.  I give you the three people that mean more to me than life itself, my family……………

Taking these shots was hilarious. I had the camera rigged onto our stroller in a way that people couldn’t see it was there. People kept walking by us with weird looks on their faces while we kissed and gazed into each others eyes and did all sorts of silly things to get the right shots. Now on to the lovey dovey stuff…

I’m so glad you were able to jimmy rig the camera up and get some of you and Jake. Is it weird that I want to wall paper my house with these photos. Oh wait… nevermind.

carol Martinez - Jenny — These pictures are fantastic. You are such a wonderful photographer and your family is fabulous. We sure will miss all of you in Nashville this Christmas.

Pam Chidgey - Oh, my goodness. I am in awe once again but this time to the point of tears welling up in my eyes. Sweetheart, these are the best photos I have ever seen and its not just because they are of the 4 of you (well, maybe just a little bit!). You are such a handsome family. I can’t believe how much the boys have changed. And even you and Jacob! I’m counting down the hours when I’ll be there to enjoy you in person! But many of these photos will be in my scrapbooks to come.

Pam Chidgey - Oh, I just read all your comments! Wow, Happy Birthday to me! Best birthday gift ever!! And the boys shirts are adorable, my daughter is more beautiful than I’ve ever seen her and my son-in-law is even more handsome than he was in his 20s. It looks like you all had so much fun doing this photo shoot for grandma and me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! There are 4 that take top prize in my book – take a guess.

Melody Kotakis - I concur with everyone. Absolutely fabulous Jenny. Your mother CAN NOT contain herself. What a joy you are!

December 5, 2009 - 10:54 am

Grandma - My Dearest Granddaughter,
You have so beautifully fullfilled our requests for our birthdays. I am already mentally creating scrapbook pages. Being a scrapbooker I feel especially blessed to have a talented photographer for a granddaughter, I’m so lucky!!!!! Of course, you know me, I am especially fond of the smiley pictures and I do love the lovey ones of you and Jacob.
Thank you,

Mom - I’ve looked at these photos several times and still my eyes well up with tears! I wish you didn’t live so far away….you are all just so cute and fun. Best birthday gift ever (family photo shoot, that is.) Thank you so much, daughter dear.
