Dee Snider With my Favorite Twisted Sister

Our friend Jennifer Sall has been a busy girl since our headshot session. We did our session because Jen got a new haircut and wanted to update her pictures. If you didn't recognize her before I think you might now. She's working the new do! Here's some of her recent work.

Think you got the Twisted Sister reference? Jen and I both come from families of all girls and we love to swap stories.

Congrats to Jen, we love seeing your face all over the place!

"Yes I said yes I will Yes. "

Yes, I'm a cry baby. I've been a little emotional these days because my baby, yes I still think of all 3 of them as my babies, is no longer in junior high. In this weakened state I opened an email with the above picture. The tears rolled down my cheeks as I saw my images hanging in her home. How lucky she is. Part of me envies her. She is in the midst of all those precious days that are now, for me, the memories I try so hard not to let fade. I know that I too am fortunate though. My "little one" will not go with me to see the new Disney Pixar movie Brave but we did go together to pick out the dress for her 8th grade formal. A day I've dreamed about since the paper in the envelope from the ultra sound tech said girl 94%. It brings me so much joy to be able to watch all these new families grow. It doesn't seem that long ago that we brought our own little daughter home from the hospital and now she is going to high school. If you felt a little pang in your heart when you read this let it serve as a reminder. Don't forget to have your family portraits taken even if you don't come to me. Get them scheduled. Repeat after me, I will yes.

Happy Summer!
