What a great Christmas we have had! It is so good to have family all together again. Before Ed left to go to Virginia to spend Christmas with his daughter and family, he did a portrait of Betty's family. In fact, we spent all Sunday morning doing portraits both at the beach and in the studio. Aria and Clay have grown so since the last one done the fall before we left San Jose back in 2004. We'll attach a few of the images to this blog to show you the family. We spent Tuesday going to MOSI and the Dali Museum over in St. Petersburg. That was fun. There was a scavenger hunt for the little ones as they looked for different things like ants, flies, eggs and soft clocks in Dali's paintings. They received a prize at the end.
These first images are from the beach. We went to our usual spot at Little Harbor in Ruskin. The children love the beach.
The cousins were perfect subjects for the camera.
Once we got to the studio we changed into the burgundy and black and did a whole group of images.
These are Betty's three kids. The boys still live in California - one in Watsonville and the other in Santa Cruz.
Aria and Clay have such a good time together. They spent a lot of time riding two wheel bikes and doing art projects. The house will be quiet when Aria goes home on Saturday.
