We have all heard the Forrest Gump expression ad nauseum--or rather those of us who remember, unlike the current crop of American Idol hopefuls, the mid-1990s have! But I digress . . . . 

For the past two workshops I've taught for other photographers, I decided to make the "real home" shoot very real indeed, in the sense that I've never visited the home nor met the family prior to the workshop.  In the workshop two weeks ago, I showed up with the 11 attendees to the house of the W. family, not knowing what I was "going to get."  Just as sometimes you get your favorite caramel in a box or chocolates on the first try, sometimes you get a joyful, colorful home full of laughter when you need it most.  Thank you, W. family, and thank you to all of the attendees!  These children were simply adorable and handled their 12 new BFF photographers with such grace.  

A few housekeeping notes: 1) There will be no additional workshops this year. Winter has been surprisingly busy (so many newborns--love!) but spring through the rest of the year is always busier and it does not look like there is room in the schedule. 2) For those portrait clients who have a spring/early summer session in mind, do let me know!  We are currently booking late May and the summer and will be closed for the month of August this year.  3) We'll be closed starting tomorrow, the 23rd, through April 6th.  All e-mails and phone calls will be returned beginning April 6th.  Thank you!
