That's a bunch of Paschalls

The annual Paschall reunion, held June 17th, drew relatives from several surrounding states. The gang settled for a photo after a big ole lunch and lots of visiting.

Bears, oh my!

Our trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone allowed a grizzly bear sighting. Juli and Sam were so excited...almost as much as me and Terry! So, anyway, out she came.... ...followed by her two cubs; what a bonus. So naturally, we took gobs of pictures...
...along with 300 other tenderfoots. Still, it was great fun and she didn't seem to mind all the attention.

Sam and Terry and Juli posed for a photo at Jackson Lake Lodge (thanks to cousin Carol for the hook-up) in front of the Grand Tetons mountain range.
The four of us hiked a short trail to the Yellowstone Lodge overlook at Yellowstone's geyser area. We highly recommend Jackson Lake Lodge to anyone who is traveling that direction. There is no television, so we all stayed up half the night playing cards at the main lodge. It was great fun. We'll have to rest up and do it again sometime.

Baylee's Baptism

Pastor Ken carried Baylee down the aisle while the congregation sang Jesus Loves Me.
Everyone is happy here except the guest of honor. It's dinner time for her. This is Ashlee's family visiting at Sango Methodist for little Baylee's baptism. It is also Father's Day and Pastor Ken's last Sunday at Sango. He's moving to Erin next Sunday and will be greatly missed.
Wow! The whole gang...Baylee's parents, grandparents and great-grandparents and aunts and uncles. There's a whole lot of love in this room.

Boys will be...

Hayden and Ethan, hope those are spelled right, are a pure delight to their mother, Erinne. I collected the images of the boys and their cousin, Wells, for a 'day in the life' (more like an hour, as the pizza had arrived, hee hee) photo session. They are soooo active.

Shea's work

Hey, Shea Halliburton has some nice work at byshea.
Shea is a native Clarksvillian who is living and working in Birmingham and has recently added wedding photography to her list of marketable talents. She is destined for great things.

I am gearing up for a big trip to the Grand Tetons next week. Since most of my trips involve photography workshops and seminars, this travel for pure pleasure will be a welcome change. I've talked daughter Juli into coming with me, but Jordan is holding out for the next trip to New York...better shopping there.

I did a fun shoot Sunday with some sweet little boys. I'll post soon. Stay tuned.

Relay for Life

Relay for Life fund raiser photos.

Jessica, Wade, Michael and Greg helped to design luminaries (is that spelled right?)

Tom Vaughn visited with Luminarie (again, that word) Chair Joy Roberts, my sister, and her faithful clan: Irene, Jane, and Sandra.

My younger daughter, Juli, and Tommy Bagwell are yearly participants.

And my older daughter, Jordan, stopped working long enough for a photo shoot with me.

Ms Wanda Burchett is a very sweet lady. She is a hugger and a survivor.

My sister is a 23 year cancer survivor.

She volunteers every year for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. She also recruits her nieces (two are my girls), who gladly oblige, and her merry band of church member buddies for the annual event. The fund raiser provides an opportunity to recognize survivors and honor the memory of loved ones who died of the disease.

The girls always make luminaries for their Papa, my dad.

Here we go...

Alyson's dream outdoor wedding was all she imagined; Great friends, great fun, a night to remember.

I Love these guys!

Wow! That wedding was awesome (can I still use that word?). These guys were the greatest...the handsome groom is in the center, that's Kyle, and his dad is to his right and his new dad-in-law is on his left. Yep, that's Fuzzy in a tux. Apparently it rained (big time!) every where in Montgomery county except this little piece of land where the outdoor wedding was held. Good times.

Courtney & Eric

They met in high school and she followed him off to college. The two Mississippi State grads are now ready to hit the ground running. Courtney and Eric are anxious to be married folk and start a life together. I slowed them down just long enough for some engagement shots. They are just so stinkin' cute together. See more of Courtney and Eric at enter: Albright Kimsey wedding.

Leilani @ 50

My 'old' friend Leilani made it to the half century mark today! Whew!...what a ride...still recovering from that wonderful wedding for her daughter, which we thoroughly enjoyed, and now celebrating 50 years of a life well lived!
