Going to the Courthouse and We’re Going to get Married

Planning to get married at the courthouse in Prince George’s County or Washington, DC?  I’ll meet you and capture the moment in beautiful pictures.

Whether it’s just the two of you, or the two of you and a small group of family and friends, it can be a very special event!

After we take pictures in the courthouse we can take more in attractive spots just outside and across the street at the pond in Upper Marlboro.

Dance Lessons: Auntie Enamored by Nephew, Nephew Enamored by his own Moves

Auntie enamored by a favorite nephew as he shows fancy dance steps.  He is equally enamored by his own moves and ability to dance.

Fun time was had by all watching and enjoying a relative’s retirement party.

Enamored

Dance and party like a good family should

Cousins Mike and Janie had the opportunity to dance and enjoy each others’ company at a family event.  One lives up north and the other in the south.  Many times family only has the chance to get together at funerals or sad occasions.  This was at Janie’s brother’s retirement party and a good time was had by all.

I hope your family is dancing!

Diamonds! – Women with Age Photography

Photography showcasing the beauty of women with age. Diamonds!!

Some of these women are sisters from church,  some I met at various events, some are aunts.  Some are friends from the neighborhood.  The one on the cover with the black hat is my late mother.

Some are gone all and some are still here to treasure.  God bless them all!

Do you have pictures of your diamonds?

Family Reunion – Honoring our Seniors

 Hart-Sims Family Reunion

We celebrated our family reunion this past weekend as we have consecutively each year since 1976.  This year I wanted to honor our senior family members for their examples and contribution to the family.  God bless them!

Aunt Vivian ldAunt Vivian

The last of the Hart brothers and sisters.
I like to be around her because she reminds me so much of my mother.   For the longest time she would not let me take her picture but yesterday she sat patiently for a portrait.

Glennelle ld Glen

One of Uncle Marvin’s daughters.  When I see her I always think truant officer because she was one way, way back in the day in NC. She has had a career in education since then.

7 year old says he wants to cut the grass. I got it on tape!

My seven year old grandson was so excited about cutting the grass when he saw me working in the yard.  I thought it would be great to capture him on video so I can play it back when he is old enough to actually cut grass.

I am not sure that it will be legally binding.

What do you think?
