Just before I left on vacation they passed around a clipboard in church asking for donation of services for a silent auction to fundraise for girls camp. I don't have girls going, but I was sure grateful when my daughter's camp fee's were covered by our Ward. I volunteered to take pictures for a Senior session. When I got home I had a message that the Bishop wanted to talk to me...uh oh. When we finally connected he told me that he had bought the picture session and since he didn't have a senior in his house he wanted to turn it into a Senior "Citizen" session. What fun! He wanted to set this up for a single gentleman in our ward whose family is scattered about as he felt they would love to receive a picture of him, and it is something he probably wouldn't think of doing himself. So tonight was the night and the bugs we SO bad...ugh. But we got some nice shots. There were a couple that I looked at and thought, they would make a pretty nice black and white. I converted this one and was beyond thrilled with the results...what do YOU think?

I decided this year that I was going to set a goal for myself. I wanted a picture of my family and I was going to do whatever it took to get that. While on vacation we spent some time at the beach and it presented the perfect opportunity to get exactly what I was looking for. I love my family and I am so glad I was able to capture that in this moment. I seriously cannot wait to get these blown up and framed in my house. :)
