April Showers

Brings a whole lot of photos. Lots of busy work like taxes and such kept me parked in front of my laptop for most of April while my Canon gently weeped.

Present at both Saturday and Sunday's showers, thank God for Aunt Ginny who never met a camera lens she didn't like

So I felt a bit rusty sashaying into two baby shower shoots. Uneven lighting, moving targets and poorly lit tables against a gawd awful green wall were the worst.

And let's hear it for kids, always a willing whether or not they get a second cupcake

Bonus, my cousin Gina (yes we're Italian so there are two of us) has twins

And what's better than little girls drinking red punch

Okay, maybe some people don't appreciate candid shots (Claudia was a good sport though)

You know who never complains, Aunt Betty

Linda didn't complain either (because she didn't see this)

Wheeee, take my picture, Jeanna

Teens and Toddlers

This gave me flashes of my college dorm

The old dudes downstairs at the senior fashion show asked my cuz if she was a model

My cheery Aunt Em and father to be, Joey, who hung out in the bar

And here's the sick greenish beige wall in a dark corner that ruined what should have been the $ shot

I found that hugs are hard to shoot

The next shower the following day had a whole other set of challenges, but I liked the reflection from the windows


  1. Lotta work out of love I guess.

  2. Looks like Aunt Ginny is quite the character! Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend!

  3. I love this!! I'm not a photographer, I'm a picture taker, and people say "bring your camera" "take pictures" at events. They are tough to do but you do a great job!! Candid shots are the best.

    1. Yeah, I guess that's what I am too, Yogi. Thanks, got lots of complaints that people didn't like their photos, gets to be a drag.

  4. Looks like everyone had a lovely time!

    1. I think they were both a success. (I only put up one photo from the second one).

  5. Great pictures. I love your Aunt Ginny she looks so much fun!

  6. You have a fun family! Looks like such fun.

    1. Yes and no, Sallie, lol. They can be, especially the Irish side.

  7. I have quite a few of those 2 dollar bills. i guess they fit my personality.

    1. Ha, my Aunt Ginny collect them, as did my dad.
