These were taken by a friend, John Walsh, who is a professional photographer. Thanks for doing such a great shoot with us, John!

Peg and Rob 30th Anniversary - John Walsh Photographer

We haven't had a nice professional photo taken of Rob in, like, forever:

I love the picture I've been using as my portrait on my DW, LJ, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn Profile, but I've gone back to wearing glasses and have a new haircut and it's four years out of date. Given that I have to spruce up the LinkedIn Profile, I went to a friend at my church and asked whether he would be willing to shoot some professional shots for me. He did a beautiful job, and we agreed that I would pay him once I get a job.

This first one is the one I'll use for LinkedIn:

These are nice, too:

Once we received the cancer diagnosis, I immediately decided that we had to have pictures taken. I wanted to have a family portrait done for the Christmas card, but Fiona would be overseas, and Rob will be losing all his hair. We decided to get all our family portraits done in one fell swoop: birthday portraits for the girls, and an anniversary portrait for Rob and me, too.

Here are the girls together. Adorable, aren't they? )

Here is Rob's and my 27th anniversary picture )

This is the picture we'll use for our Christmas card this year )

And this last picture is something we've never done before. I think of it as 'the cancer picture,' with Rob taken by surprise, and the three of us kissing him. (On that soon-to-be-lost hair, note). Giving him our love and support.

On the one hand, when I look at this picture I think, how corny, really. How cheesy.
On the other hand, I really, really like it.

Last Christmas, tragically, we did not have any money for portraits. It was with huge relief that I had the portrait done this past December. Wonderful to re-establish this important family ritual.

First, here's our family picture for the year:

Next, we had a couple portraits done of the two girls together:

We also had some individual shots done of Delia. I particularly love this first one, which catches a great deal of her inner sass:

From The Next Web here:
In 9 days time [May 15], people all over the world will be coming together with one single aim – to photograph their lives – as part of the global ADay.org project.

As part of an initiative founded by Swedish non-profit, Expressions of Humankind, May 15th has been designated as the day everyone the world over is being asked to pick up their camera and take a photo of what is close to them, and what matters most to them, as part of the ADay.org event.

Explaining the purpose behind the event, the organizers write, "Our mission is to use the power of photography to create, share and inspire perspectives on daily life – today and tomorrow."

So how does it all work? Join the Aday.org site, and on May 15 you will be able to upload the image that you’ve shot, and add information on who is in the picture, and the story behind it. You have until May 22 to upload your images.



All images submitted to the site will be displayed online, while some will be selected for publication in a book, A Day in the World, and others still will appear in digital and print exhibitions.

If you need a little bit of inspiration of your own on what to shoot, some guidelines have been provided. The three main categories, Home, Work and Connections, are further divided into sub-categories, and pretty much cover any topic that could possibly come to mind. If you’re stumped about what you want to shoot, the page is definitely well worth checking out.

This is the first year since the girls were born that I haven't hit all the milestones on pictures. We did not get a picture of Delia for her birthday, and we are not taking a picture of the family for a Christmas card. This has disheartened me so much I'm not sure I will send out a holiday letter at all this year.

It was simply a financial decision. Money for portraits is a luxury we simply cannot afford while we're struggling to pay the mortgage and other necessary bills. And yet it bothers me so much. I feel like our family is being robbed of its history. I was so proud that we had made this a priority, that the girls had a record of their growing up that they could show their own children (I hope) someday.

Little things have dropped away over the years as we've retrenched, again and again, trying to keep ourselves going. I know that in the grand scheme of things, I must care for my family and make the wisest decisions on the priority of spending money. It should be a small thing.

Yet for some reason, this one hurts just about the most.

I almost wept, she was so gorgeous. And Mitch was just as handsome. Pictures credit: Dave Miland.

(In an endearingly teenage compliment, Mitch called her "hardcore pretty.")

More hardcore prettiness )



I don't honestly think I've ever seen her looking more beautiful. THANK YOU especially to Mitch's dads, Randy and Dave, who so kindly made it possible for her to go. It was Randy who found her that gorgeous dress (on eBay). And thanks to Dave for the beautiful pictures. We will certainly treasure them.

We celebrate getting our black belts with tri-part portraits. Here's mine for my first degree belt:

Here's Fiona's for her second degree belt.

A preview of prom exquisiteness.

Lousy pictures, but she's so beautiful, it doesn't make a difference. (One of Mitch's dads will take a proper portrait, including some lovely couples shots, on the day of the event itself.)







pegkerr: (Karate Fiona 2008)
Today we had karate portraits taken. Fiona and I both had triple exposure pictures taken to celebrate our new black belts (Fiona, second degree and me, first degree) (See the example in the icon, the one she had taken when she was awarded her first degree black belt in 2008). Fiona was also included in the assistant staff portrait, below. Fiona drew the short straw and had to hold the pose in the deepest stance:

I'll post the triple exposure portraits of the two of us when they arrive; they will be sent out later.

I discovered a fun tool online that tinkers with portraits.

I used these photos of Fiona and Delia and this photo of me.

Here's what Fiona would look like as a young adult )

I just adore this picture of Fiona and Mitch. They had a wonderful time.
