Day 62 - June 27, 2011 - ME

I am usually behind the camera and I really
like not being the subject of someone
elses camera!

But here are a few taken lately by other people that
I really like.

This one was taken by Lewie Santos of
Frozen Moments Photo
It is my son, Cory on rehearsal day for his
wedding. I love this shot of him and I.
Been a long time since I had my pic made with such
a handsome young man.

This one taken also by Lewie on Cory's wedding day.
The next two photos were taken by an OLD school
friend (sorry Pam, had to throw OLD in there)!
Pam or loving known to me as P2. Both of
us are Pam's with last names that started with
M's in school....since the spelling of my last name
came before her's...I became P1!

These were taken at the marina where we were
enjoying a band made up from guys that we went
to school with. Thanks P2 - I like these pics.

Photos by P2 can be seen at

Day 61 - June 26, 2011- Party Foods

My niece turned 16 this month, a week later
there was a surprise birthday party given
for her.
I was there, of course, with my camera.

Here are some party treats that were served.
Yummy...cake balls.
And Holly loves the Nashville Hockey team, the
Preds. So this was so fitting.

Day 59- June 24, 2011 - Balloons

Tonight was the surprise b-day party for my niece
Holly that actually turned 16 last Friday.
but I am sure it was no surprise
to her that Aunt Pam was there with her
I did catch these really neat shots.

Day 58- June 28, 2011 - New Business Card I guess you are wondering why I would
cover up the phone and email address if this is
a business card! lol
I will hand these out to people I want to have
them but I do not want it all over the
internet since I am not likely to travel
all over the states to do a session!....

Anyway, I could not think of two better people
to put on my new business card then my
son and new daughter in law.
Aren't they the cutest?

Day 54 - June 19, 2011 - Fish Fry

The guy in this pic in Mark....
we went to the same school just different grades
back many, many, many (think that might cover
it) years ago!That is another school friend, Laura.
For the last 30 years or so Mark and his family have gotten
together and had an annual fish fry. Last year Mark decided
to include facebook friends and old school friends in this
annual fish fry.

Of course last year Mark had not made me a friend of
his on facebook (lol, that is my story Mark and I
am sticking to it) so I did not attend. But it went
over so well that he did the same thing this
year by including his friends (difference was
I was invited this time) !!! lol

This is yet another school friend, Debby and her
sweet 15 year old daughter Raegan.
Reagan helped me to make hush puppies.

Laura's son, Justin. He warned me to not take his pic...
Sorry, you lost out.
Evan, Debby's son working on the decorations.
That actually says "Wecome to The Fishfry".
Nice table decorations Laura.
And the food was awesome.
Check these babies out....frog legs and guess what...
they taste like chicken!
Fish....a group of folks worked for a couple of
hours the night before cutting all this up.
Ok, so I might not cook but Steve makes a really
awesome Poppyseed Cake!
See those...I made those hush puppies! They were great.
I was surprised when Laura handed me the stuff and said
"you are making hush puppies" question, "Laura,
what part of "I DON'T COOK", do you not get"?
Frog legs in the middle and fish on the other side.
Sorry, I failed to get a pic of the head cook,
Jimmy. But Jimmy did the most awesome job on cooking
this meal. We had hamburgers and hotdogs also.
This is Jeff, I think we could call him the assistant
cook. Nice job Jeff.
The fish was so good I have to keep showing it!
And theres Steve's cakes again. Along with Laura's
chocolate pies! These are just so GOOD.
Yet more food.
Chips...I didn't get any of those.
and we now have the hotdog and hamburger
There were about 100 or so folks there and some came
after I left. There was a band and then I took pics.

Mark has such a big heart that he is wanting to start a foundation
to help young kids get into or stay in sports. Sports played
a big row in Marks life. So this coming year we DuPont
folks (our school does not exist any longer but as
school friends we come together) will be helping
Mark in this adventure and doing fund raising events
through out the year to help these kids. The guys from
The Old Hickory Boys (band) will be lending their talent
for the events and I will be given my photo skills to it.

Thanks Mark, Laura, Jeff, Jimmy and anyone I missed
for such an awesome day. Had a blast!
