Yesterday I posted about discovering my old high school friend, Tara.  I sent you on over to her blog, Just Be Blogged and I expected you to spend some time poking around and admiring her style.  That is what I do every time I visit...which is every morning (more like 4 or 5 times a day)!  She always amazes me with what she sees through her lens.
After I contacted her and we emailed back and forth for a year or so I made a decision.  Hubs and I were going to get our family photos done and it had to be Tara.  There are so many things about my family that I wanted to capture in a still frame.  Moments I want frozen.  I filled out Tara's questionnaire and explained these things to her as best I could but I didn't know how well it could be done.  Ha, let me just tell you now, Tara can do it!
Tara captured all of the moments I wanted and those I didn't even know I needed until I saw them on the screen.  She saw the love that we share with each other and she got it.  Man, she even got a look that I gave Hubs in one shot that I didn't even know I gave him anymore!  Look for it in the slide show...#75.  It reminds me of the days when we first started dating, when he was my whole world and I wanted to spend the day just staring at him.  Who knew I still did that?!  She got the shots of Diva's freckles and curls and multi colored eyes.  She got Professor's endless-pools-of-blue eyes, his tongue-in-teeth concentration, gappy grin that will be gone soon.  She captured us in our home surrounded by the things that we love.  The kids playing on the piano that used to be pounded on by my brothers and me when it sat in my Granny's house.  The kids at their homework table drawing bridges with their rainbow colors of crayons.  She captured us in our neighborhood with the things that makes our community important to US!  The oranges, the green fields and mountains way off in the background. 
Tara is a mysteriously talented woman.  I feel happier knowing her and blessed to have my families images captured by her artistic eye.
Please enjoy the slide show.  I would love to hear which ones you love.

Turn up the volume, she added lovely music too!


  1. O. M. G.
    simply beautiful.
    You. Your family. Your home.
    **BUT** the photographer can't even take half the credit for that - though 26..36..72...97...99...101...112 are breathtaking (yes, I could have kept on listing number after number!!!) - she does do amazing work.

  2. Oh, Le Anne - these are absolutely wonderful! You are beautiful and your famly is lovely! Love the family shot by the fence. Wow - I feel like I really know your family now. Wonderful!
