John Henry's First portraits

What a lousy, foggy day to have first photographs! It was as thick as soup an Signal Mountain this morning!

John Henry has a lot of energy and will need it to keep up with big sister, Julia. From all appearances, he's up to it. I don't think he ever stopped wiggling and smiling, except to take a snack break. I think he's going to keep mom and dad very busy.

I photographed John and Molly's wedding NINE years ago! When she told me it had been that long, I'm sure my look said disbelief. (I'm just sure I'm not that old! Ha!)

I also don't think we could have gotten these without Molly's mom helping. I'm always amazed how these young moms keep everything together. There are lots of opportunities for "loose ends". Thanks, Susie, for helping Molly and me!!

"Engineered" Family

Linda and Cliff are both Electrical Engineers.

...and they've engineered a beautiful (and marvelously well behaved!) family. All of the kids (Alec, Ian, Evan, Linden, and Aiden) are very bright and a joy to work with.

Master Aiden has crowned the Parten cake! What a sweetie (and trooper) he is! Through all of the family photography, he loved on mom and dad, brothers and sister, and us. We just knew he'd fall apart and not have anything left for his first portraits, but he rose to the occasion. He loved being the center of attention... not that four brothers and a sister don't always love on him.

We think he had a blast. It shows!
