Cade, Gage, and Dane

Cade, Gage, and Dane are the sons of our really good friends, Mike and Deb. Chris and Deb have been friends since kindergarten and Chris , Mike, and Deb all went to high school together - I'm the only outsider. I met Deb and Mike while Chris and I were dating and we quickly became good friends (Deb and I now both teach at Franklin). Our kids have been friends since they were born and all get along really well. In fact, Jenna and Gage are going to get married some day....just ask them! Anyhow...Deb asked me to take some pictures of the boys - both together and seperate. I was a little nervous about it...I didn't know how they'd do since they are so comfortable with me...and I didn't want to disappoint Deb. But it ended up going great and being a lot of fun. The boys did a great job and were really cooperative. Gage kept suggesting ideas for poses and Dane was cracking me up with all his facial expressions and his conversation (he's truly one of the funniest kids I've ever met!) We had perfect weather and 2 great locations (I think this alley is going to be one of my favorite places to take photos. I love it!) It's sessions like this one that make me want to quit teaching and do this forever instead.

Here is a sneak peak of a photo of each of them. I'm experimenting with an online viewing gallery for when I do to see the rest of their photos, click here. (You can click on "view album" and then "view slideshow" to see each individual photo.) And if you visit the photo album, let me know what you think. I'm trying to get some feedback for future use. THANKS!

Those are great! Move down here and let ME quit and be your assistant! This year is making me wish I had a side talent to fall back on! ;)

Those are so awesome! I am really impressed. I have always been impressed, but lately you are really getting that professional touch! I wish you were here for Payton! But honestly I couldn't keep up with the scrapbooking if you were! I need to go check the slideshow now...even though I should be working!

These are wonderful. The boys are so grown up since I last saw them. You do have a gift. MOM
