Auntie enamored by a favorite nephew as he shows fancy dance steps. He is equally enamored by his own moves and ability to dance.
Fun time was had by all watching and enjoying a relative’s retirement party.
Cousins Mike and Janie had the opportunity to dance and enjoy each others’ company at a family event. One lives up north and the other in the south. Many times family only has the chance to get together at funerals or sad occasions. This was at Janie’s brother’s retirement party and a good time was had by all.
I hope your family is dancing!
Capturing the love. Now is the time for family photos!
Family pictures become priceless family treasures.
Photography showcasing the beauty of women with age. Diamonds!!
Some of these women are sisters from church, some I met at various events, some are aunts. Some are friends from the neighborhood. The one on the cover with the black hat is my late mother.
Some are gone all and some are still here to treasure. God bless them all!
Do you have pictures of your diamonds?

The last of the Hart brothers and sisters.
I like to be around her because she reminds me so much of my mother. For the longest time she would not let me take her picture but yesterday she sat patiently for a portrait.
One of Uncle Marvin’s daughters. When I see her I always think truant officer because she was one way, way back in the day in NC. She has had a career in education since then.
My nephew was born premature and had many challenges including numerous surgeries.
