I know this is a blog about my artistic life, but not today...
In honor of my parents' 50th anniversary this past summer, when the whole family was "up north", we had family portraits taken. It's been almost 6 months already and if I don't get those portraits printed and hung soon, the kids will have already changed again. It's no fun hanging "old" pictures, no matter how great they are. For the adults its not so critical. At this point, it's basically a couple more pounds on the frame each year.
The gal that helped us out is Scarlett Piedmonte. You can find her at Photography by Scarlett. She helped us rather non-photogenic people relax. She took hundreds pictures, in various configurations, of the whole crowd of 16, plus a dog. I highly recommend her for those living in the Traverse City, MI area.
So, without further delay, here are a few of the pictures she took of just my family. (And for those that haven't noticed, I have a new Profile photo on my blog and Facebook, that is much improved from the old one!)
