Photos Required: Children grow up so fast

Children grow up so fast! One minute you have a little baby and before you know it the little one is asking for car keys.  Time won’t stand still but pictures can capture some of the moments.

Along the way e can snap pictures and can hold the memories.

Take lots of pictures of your little ones and from time to time have a professional capture those precious images.

Diamonds! – Women with Age Photography

Photography showcasing the beauty of women with age. Diamonds!!

Some of these women are sisters from church,  some I met at various events, some are aunts.  Some are friends from the neighborhood.  The one on the cover with the black hat is my late mother.

Some are gone all and some are still here to treasure.  God bless them all!

Do you have pictures of your diamonds?

Big Bold Pictures in Big Bold Frames

We believe that one should not settle for digital images.  Make beautiful images and print them large.  Then pick big beautiful frames to show them off.  Put them on your wall where all can see or gift them for friends.

Senior Portraits – It’s All About the Graduate

Senior Portraits – Gleeful image of a college graduate during her photo shoot.

During the session we take the standard cap and gown images and then we take creative shots that express the graduate’s personality. Pictures are taken in studio and in various locations of the graduate’s choice.

It’s all about the graduate as we celebrate his/her accomplishment.

Family Circle – Gathering for prayer. Family Reunion – Rutherfordton, NC

Reuniting for fellowship, fun, and food.  36th annual Hart-Sims family reunion.  It’s not the largest family reunion but it has been consistently held since 1976.  After many years of holding banquets in hotels, etc. our family went back to a simple backyard celebration this year..  Fish Fry on Friday night, cookout Saturday afternoon, and large dinner Saturday night.  Nothing fancy but just as much fun.  All together in one location for 2 days.  Keeping it simple.

What does your family do?
