Not positive about the year on this one, but I’m thinking probably 1984 or 1985.
Well, we made it back from our vacation. I totally had the ‘vacation is over blues’ on our way home. We ended our vacation in the gorgeous sunny 80 degree temps of Boca Raton, FL, and were snapped back to the reality of rainy 30 degree gloomy Arkansas. Boo. I can admit that I became a bit spoiled by ocean sunrises and daily walks along the beach with my boys.
Now that we are back home, we have to reprogram & get back into the groove of life. It seem that when we go on any type of vacation, even a weekend getaway, we come back changed…or with life changes in mind. We’ve decided to travel more, spend more time together, and work more on being a family. We are a very close family, very affectionate, and communicate well, but we do so many things separate that it feels like we’ve grown apart a little as the kids have gotten older. We plan on trying to reverse that a little.
It was nice to come back home, but I can honestly say that I could have stayed on the beach for at least a month without blinking an eye. And the fact that I got to see family I hadn’t seen in years & meet cousins I’ve never met while attending my Uncle Joey’s wedding was fantastic. Overall, our vacation was near perfect…only flaws were 1. It wasn’t long enough. 2. We had to buy a new camera since we forgot ours, and then it broke at the beginning of the wedding. 3. It wasn’t long enough. 4. Did I mention it wasn’t long enough?
We recently had a family photo shoot at jclare studios. I was approached a few weeks ago about doing a review about this company, and I was thrilled. As you can probably tell just by casually glancing at any page of my blog, I LOVE PICTURES, so there was no thought involved in my (probably a little overenthusiastic) answer of YES! Before I get into my review of the actual session, let me give a little information about Jennifer Clare and ‘jclare photography studios’. jclare studios is a local studio located on main street right off the square. The website is simple, user friendly, and features her work in a nice clean design. There are also links to separate pages focusing on weddings, seniors, and the BLOG. Jennifer Clare has been a photographer for about 6 years, and is mostly self taught (which in my opinion is just as good as going to school, but that rant will have to wait for another day). Jennifer attends workshops, seminars, and classes throughout the year to further her knowledge and skills, and her camera of choice is a Canon. Okay…on to the shoot!
I will most likely end up ordering another print or two as a digital file so that I can print as many as I like…it was so, so hard to choose 6 photos out of so many great ones. There were somewhere around 90 photos, and these were my favorite. The ones I ordered actual prints of were the runners up…it was a very narrow margin though. I actually changed my mind on a few during our ordering session.
