“Life, Love and Cluttered Closets”…by Lisa Smartt

This is probably the most fun family that I got to photograph last Saturday. While working with the boys, we got to wondering what kind of noise that deer make. They asked their Dad, who is a very knowledgeable professor and learned exactly what deer sound like. The boys’ Mom is a local “celebrity”…a public speaker and author of a wonderful book, The Smartt View

If you’d like to buy a great little gift for someone special go to Lisa’s website…Lisa also speaks to many groups and would be a wonderful addition to any meeting. Her website has some of her columns that have been published and I know you will enjoy each one of them. You may even see yourself depicted in one of her stories.

  2. Hi Becky

    your photographs are always so lovely and clear and it is lovely to meet your family and friends!! I am always wary of putting peoples photographs on my blog unless I have asked the person, my husband and daughter never mind. My son is a Police Officer so for his safety I never show his pic.

    I see you have a (c) on your pics, I hope you don't mind me telling you but it is easy to place a © copyright symbol. In the photo programme text box, just hold down the alt key next to the space bar and use the numerics on the right hand side and do 0169 and hopefully you should have a ©. ( I think the American keyboard is the same as a British one)

    Finally the rain has stopped here and we have some sun today!!Have a good day,

    Very best wishes, Jackie

  12. I'm moving to a small town in the Spring, where I have tons of family, most of whom I don't really know. But these types of gatherings and smiling faces is what I'm looking forward to.

    That spread is stunning!
