Diana Alexander Volpe is precious. Seriously. Ask anyone who knows her. And by some great stroke of luck and grace, she took my daughter, four grades her junior, under her wing at church and invited her as an 8th grader to be in the Awesome High School Girls Small Group. These photographs are not in an official capacity, but rather taken amidst my family's protests, "Put that down." "What are you doing?" and "Are you taking pictures?" And I promise you that I did not use a flash during the ceremony. (sigh)
After they saw the photos and that our friends were happy, and we had these memories forever on the computer and in print, they apologized. :-) Now, instead of telling me to put my camera away (when I'm taking for fun and not work), they point out pictures I need to get. I think I'm going to start letting them use my old cameras so they will leave me alone.
These are photos from about a year and a half ago, before I began taking photography seriously. I'm starting in October of 2009 and going forward in my blogs. :-)

I must add that our lion, our friend, our kid's youth pastor, who married these two has gone home and this was my last time to see that young, young man before he passed. We love and miss you Barry.
