Thinking ahead...

Some of you may remember our family Christmas card photo shoot debacle...
It wasn't pretty.
So, I am very excited that I have already scheduled a Christmas photo shoot that will take place this spring in NYC with this fabulous photographer:
If you like or follow the blog, The Nie Nie dialogues , you will recognize Wendy's wonderful style. In fact the gorgeous family portrait of Stephanie Neilson and her family is what made me choose this photographer based in Utah. Because my family lives in Utah I figured we would incorporate a photo shoot with a trip out to visit. It wasn't going to be easy to get all seven of us out at the same time...
Then I found out that she was scheduling in NYC!

The Neilson Family
This is our family photo from 2007. (please disregard the woman in white.) I am looking forward to a new family portrait, drenched in color- Wendy's style.
Please check out her website so you can see what I mean.

What a great looking family! I love the picture. I think a picture in color is a great idea too.

You have an absolutly beautiful family, including yourself!!!! I think color is nice, but I love the white.
My sister in Kansas City has 4 grown daughters, and they did one in black and white clothing--it looked great. They are all blonds.
XOXO

Frau- I think color will look fresh again!

Tami- Thank you!
Ronda- Thank you too! I have always been partial to white, but Wendy has me loving color and she isn't talking pastels!

My dear friend you have a beautiful family, including yourself!! That is so neat that you will be able to get the photographer you wanted and only a stone throw away!What colors were you thinking? xoxo

WHAT A GORGEOUS FAMILY you have!!!!! Is Stephanie Nielsen related to the Wyoming Nielsens (Cody, WY, I think) The Cody WY Nielsen Mom was the late Kathy Bradley's friend from college.....Kathy was Ron's late wife and the mom of all 5 of his children.....

I wonder if this is a small world coincidence.......

Garusos --- I don't know them. My maiden name is Pizzolato..... maybe that will ring a bell...... we had our summer home for many years at 16 Reese Ave in Lavallette, then my parents sold that house and bought a gigantic home oceanfront in Spring Lake.... corner of Ocean and Brighton... they sold that house long ago and Mom now lives in Brielle... PS I will be there in March... don't have my dates yet.... hoping to bring Ginger with me.

Hey Preppy I just had an idea. You know that peace sign thingie hanging off my bag? Do you have anything like that with a tennis racquet? (a bling racquet) Just a thought... got it at Splash in Spring Lake NJ.... it just clips onto the zipper pull.
