I am not sure if there is a baby in the world who has ever been photographed as much as Averi (except maybe Jon and Kate’s 8)? Those cherub-cheeks just beg to be captured and her mommy loves to take pictures. Apparently everyone does.
Platte Valley Medical Center knows a good looking family when they see it.
When Averi was born, the hospital staff arranged for a photo shoot of her with her mommy and daddy. They have poster-sized black and whites of them in the hallways near and in the birthing wing there to this day. They have also used the photos in the hospital’s community magazine, mailed to every household around. This made Dave-the-Grandpa somewhat famous when he taught a computer class at the hospital a couple of weeks ago. Everyone said, “Wow! Those were your kids? Your son looks just like you!”
When Averi turned one, Kaela Green offered to do a photo shoot at their home and got some cute shots of Rocky, Jovan and Averi. Kaela, say my sources, is a mommy to young sons and a budding photographer. She has a very tectural style (that is not technical terminology – I don’t actually talk in photog, but I just noticed the very interesting color and tactile-ness of the pics). Very rich. There was a slideshow of the whole thing on Flickr which looks like it isn’t there anymore, but I just learned Kaela has a website, so maybe you can see Averi and the parents there, too. http://kaelagreenphotography.blogspot.com/. By Kaela:
Then just the other day, Ellie Pickett, who was having them over for dinner, asked if they’d come a half hour early so she could “practice” taking some pictures. Jovan was worried because she’d been garage-saling all day, but she still looks fabulous.
Ellie is a designer, musician, and artiste in almost every sense of the word. I think these photographs are aewsome! Ellie is running the art gallery for Heaven Fest. She has her card/announcement design biz (http://thephotocardchef.com/) and, I just found out, a photography site (http://lilacphotography.com/).
House of Photos.
When Rocky and Jovan buy a house, they are going to need some major sky-high walls to hold all the photos of themselves – just the really super fantastic ones, I mean. And there are a lot of them!
I think they are beautiful – the whole little family.
I am the momma/nonna, what can I say?…Jeanie
NOTE TO SELF: How to choose the best of the prints for the hallway gallery?…Determine – soon.
