A "Sunny" Welcome For September

"By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer."
~Helen Hunt Jackson

"If I were a flower I would be a 

sunflower. To always follow the sun, 

Turn my back to darkness,
Stand proud, tall and straight even

 with my head full of seeds."

 ~ Pam Stewart

“The new country lay open before me: there were no
 fences in those days, and I could choose my own way 
over the grass uplands, trusting the pony to get me home
 again. Sometimes I followed the sunflower-bordered
 roads. Fuchs told me that the sunflowers were introduced 
into that country by the Mormons; that at the time of the
 persecution when they left Missouri and struck out into 
the wilderness to find a place where they could worship
 God in their own way, the members of the first exploring
 party, crossing the plains to Utah, scattered sunflower 
seeds as they went. The next summer, when the long trains
 of wagons came through with all the women and children, 
they had a sunflower trail to follow. I believe that botanists do
 not confirm Jake's story but, insist that the sunflower was 
native to those plains. Nevertheless, that legend has stuck in
 my mind, and sunflower-bordered roads always seem to 
me the roads to freedom.” 
~Willa Cather

Welcome September,
 welcome Autumn!

September Photo Shoots

I have been so honored to
have been asked to shoot another wedding and 2
 more family sessions. I love nothing more than doing this!
East End Girl Photography at your service!

The wedding was one of the 
sweetest I have seen and was so much fun. 
Happiness always Katie and Shawn!

I can't believe sweet Tabitha is 6 months old already! 
She and her Mom and Dad are such a special family.

And wow! Luke is almost two! How did that happen!
He and his lovely parents make one of the most wonderful families.

I am so grateful to these amazing people for 
allowing me to be a part of their lives! And aren't they all photogenic?

Summer 2013 was just amazing! It was a bit of a whirlwind
 to be sure but so much fun. A family trip to Quebec, a girlfriend getaway
to Tennessee and North Carolina. We saw Brian Wilson, the Happy Together Tour,
Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers, The Blues Brothers and the legendary Tony
Bennett in concert. 

We had visitors from around the country, 
lazy evenings with friends on the deck, day trips to Columbus and Cincinnati and Bill
and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary in late August.

 We began that weekend with Tony Bennett and finished with
 a wonderful dinner with family and
friends. We also have reservations to take a weekend trip to Ohio's
 Amish country in November to continue the celebrating! All in all a delightful
Summer to remember!

Here's to a beautiful and happy September for all of us!
Sunflower season is here, the sun sets just a wee bit earlier, the breeze
feels cooler and its time to begin decorating for Autumn!
My favorite time of year is upon us!
