And baby makes 4...

"Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero."  ~Marc Brown

Mr. C now has a baby sister and wow does she dig him! His smiles and silliness makes her giggle and chatter back at him in such a sweet way. Darling Miss C (yes, they both are C's!)  truly adores her big brother! 

I have been photographing this family for the last three years and being able to watch their family grow has been such a privilege. Time certainly goes fast, everyone tells you that. Documenting their  milestones and the simple joys of life, like riding the swing at the park, is something that I do not take for granted. Each time a session like this ends, I just smile!

Guys and Dolls

By Amy Boyle in personal amy boyle photography theater junior high musical

When you see a guy reach for stars in the sky
You can bet that he's doing it for some doll.
When you spot a John waiting out in the rain
Chances are he's insane as only a John can be for a Jane.
When you meet a gent paying all kinds of rent
For a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal.
Call it sad, call it funny.
But it's better than even money
That the guy's only doing it for some doll.
When you see a Joe saving have of his dough
You can bet there'll be mink in it for some doll.
When a bum buys wine like a bum can't afford
It's a cinch that the bum is under the thumb of some little broad.
When you meet a mug lately out of the jug
And he's still lifting platinum folderol
Call it hell, call it heaven
But it's probable twelve to seven
That the guy's only doing it for some doll.

When you see a sport and his cash has run short
Make a bet that he's banking it with some doll.
When a guy wears tails with the front gleaming white
Who the hell do you think he's tickling pink on Saturday night?
When a lazy slob takes a goody steady job,
And he smells from vitalis and barbasol.
Call it dumb, call it clever
Ah, but you can get odds forever
That the guy's only doing it for some doll
Some doll, some doll
The guy's only doing it for some doll!

 

Family Time

"When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses."  ~Joyce Brothers

After many years of photographing this family, their oldest will be off to college later this summer. We have had many great sessions full of laughter and smiles. It is so exciting to see kids I have gotten to know grow up to be great teens and now adults with so much ahead of them. Wishing Mr. S the best at college and Miss G continued success in High School!

 

 

On being a mom of boys...

By Amy Boyle in personal pinewood derby boys amy boyle photography

Boys and their cars... they sure go hand in hand.

Being that I have four sons, there has never been a shortage of wheels, cars, trucks, and the copious accompanying sounds that go with each particular make and model in our household. Add the annual Cub Scout Pinewood Derby and there is an excitement in the air that lasts more than just one day. It is a day that makes lifelong memories. I used to feel that this was just for the dads and sons, but I no longer feel that way.

Saturday, I watched my 7th Pinewood Derby hosted by Pack 3000 and I stepped back to take it all in. The excitement, the camaraderie, the family pride, the love, and the friendly competition.

What I loved most, wasn't what car was the fastest... For me as a mom observer, it was the community, sons, dads, moms, siblings, extended family and friends spending their Saturday morning and afternoon together.

There is a sort of magic that happens when you combine, sawdust, paint, axles, and graphite!

Color and Blossoms

“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything. (Sonnet XCVIII)” - William Shakespeare

No fooling, April and Spring in all its glory has arrived. As I walked back from taking my boys to school today, I just had to capture the gorgeous blossoms that have continued to pop up all over the neighborhood. The early heat wave gave such energy to these blooms and now the more seasonable temperatures are allowing them to stick around.

What a treat! 

Portraits that support a community!
