I am back logged on blogging. Oops! We have been so busy with life and photography that "calm and collected" seems like a distant dream of the past. I am posting these images from yesterday because I am so grateful that my Mom felt well enough after an intense chemo treatment in the hospital that she was able to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner. My Grams asked me to bring my camera to dinner so that I could take her Christmas card photo because she was going to "do her hair and brush her dog." (so cute) The photo session got more involved as I lured the group into the oak brush. This included some couple shots of My Aunt Debbie and Uncle Joe, our good family friends Laurie and Gary and of course my Mom and Dad. As you will see below I was even able to get lovely images of my Mom alone (as well as with everyone else that loves her to little bits of bite size pieces.) I cannot get over how amazing she is. Doesn't she just radiate divine beauty? I love her so much! Wesley and Jed are not pictured below. :( They spent Thanksgiving with Jed's family in Denver. We are going to have to get used to this dividing up the holidays thing. We missed you guys!!! :)
