Roger's mom was the first outside of my family to ask me to take portraits. And the first one to pay me to do so. Yay! ;) Roger was really cooperative, even though he had a fever. You can tell he felt badly if you look closely at his eyes. Even so, he still looked nice in his tux.
His only request was to get one of him and his truck. The reason for that request touched my heart. His grandfather had recently passed away and left Roger that truck. You gotta love kids that love their grandparents!
Toni was my second paying gig. This young lady came into my life as one of my youngest daughter's best friends. Months later, we found out that she and Shelbi are distant cousins. I should have known-- my husband's family is famous for those adorable dimples! Toni's great-grandfather and Shelbi's great-grandmother were brother and sister. How cool is that?! Further proof of how small our community is.
The first picture is Toni's favorite. It's the one that was published in the newspaper by her coworkers. I couldn't pick one favorite. Toni was really sweet, playful, and totally easy to work with. =)
