This gang met up at the Japanese Garden at Roger Williams Park recently to take some grandparent and grandkid portraits. We ran around a bunch and even took some photos! Haha, these kids know how to have fun!

While we visited Dallas, Tx last week we had the opportunity to take photos at Arlington Hall at Lee Park with the Eakins! It was a beautiful day and the Dee sure knows how to style everyone! Love y’all!
I was so excited to photograph these lovely ladies a couple of weekends ago. Talk about the perfect Mother’s Day weekend activity! I’ve known Mary and her daughters, Deanne and Karalyn since I was in elementary school. We did Girl Scouts together and played together in the summer when we were kids… One day after I got home from elementary school my mom had an allergic reaction to something. She called 911 and as the paramedics showed up so did Mary! She came in and rounded up my brother and I so that my mom wouldn’t have to worry about us. I spent the rest of the afternoon doing crafts at Mary’s house and I felt safe. So, thank you Mary! And I’d also like to say a special thank you to Kara’s mother-in-law for tending to little Nora durring the photo session! Leave lots of love in the comments for these lovely ladies!
On a beautiful day back in February we had a family outing to Coggeshall Farm Museum in Bristol, Rhode Island. It was so neat to see an authentic, historical working farm. We even got to participate in and learn about maple tapping. If you are looking for something different to do with your family one weekend I definitely suggest checking out their calendar.
I’ve known Dave and Lynn pretty much my whole life. I’ve always connected with Lynn’s aesthetic and I haven’t been fully aware of how much they have influenced my life until recently. I think I just took it for granted. So, I’ve made a list of highlights….
1. I was in their wedding. I may have been 5 or 6 years old. Everyone wore white and all the women had sheer scarfs with a rose pattern printed on it. Some ladies wore it in their hair, as a belt or around their necklace. Lynn carried lilacs. It was in a yard, I think in Jamestown. There was a sea breeze.
2. My brother and I hiked through the woods along a railroad track with Dave one day. I still have a giant railroad spike that we found on the excursion.
3. Going to college to study art. Lynn was the first person that I was aware of who had gone to school for art.
4. Vegetarianism. In memory, Lynn was my first example of a vegetarian. (It was a long time coming but Angel and I are vegetarians too.)
5. Magnetic Poetry on their fridge when I was a kid! Loved it. Now I have some :)
6. My parents were in their Bible Discussion Group when I was a kid.
7. My first viewing of Monty Python and the Holy Grail was at their apartment!
8. Various other memories of being in the woods, on hikes or hayrides with the Lawson’s.
9. I went to a few weddings as a kid where Lynn had made carrot-cake wedding cakes for couples in our church.
10. Our Rhode Island wedding reception was in their backyard. Lynn made our carrot-cake wedding cake for our RI reception. :)
11. Now as an adult my husband and I meet on Fridays at their house for some food, fellowship and Bible discussion with other christians.
So, there is more but those are some highlights. I love you guys! It was such an honor to photograph your family!
PS. The stone wall that the family is sitting on, Dave made it! And the last picture of the post will make even more sense if you know that their oldest daughter is named Abigail :)
We had Thanksgiving dinner at my sister’s house this year. It might be one of my favorite Thanksgivings to date. All the cousins ran around outside. The weather was beautiful. The food was delicious! The only thing that could have made it MORE perfect was having ALL of our family there.
Please enjoy! (and feel free to comment at the bottom of the post.)
