I had no excuse to be late to this session as it was in my back yard, so to speak.
Our neighbors wanted to have some portraits taken while family was in town, so I met with them feet away from my back deck. If only I always had it that easy. It was kind of fun being
able to just work with the area around us. Our neighborhood is nice and lush, and they have
a well manicured yard. Oh, pardon me for not introducing you to Charlotte and Marv.
Charlotte's son Andy and her daughter Jenna joined in for some photos.
In the nearly five year's I've lived here, I've gotten to know Charlotte and Marv and
enjoy chatting with them from time to time. We tend to find each other in our gardens and catch up. Ephram loves to visit with their dogs, and he has given them nic-names. Marv is 'Buddy' and Charlotte is 'Mama'.
Andy works for the family business of Heston's Auto Service and Used Cars. A family
operated business over the generations.
Jenna was in town visiting from her new home in Charlotte, North Carolina.
I have to say....I love this photo. It's more on a personal level since I know them. But given the fact that Marv and Charlotte enjoy spending time in their garden each summer, and that I look up to Marv and his green thumb. He puts my garden to shame. One day I aspire to have that perfect garden without the weeds, with plentiful crops and veggies galore.
At the end of the session, they retreated to the back deck with Jenna's dog Reggie. Much time is spent here just sitting back relaxing and having a good old chat. Days of summer, you can never get enough of those.
