Last night I attended the 2009 Christmas Tree Auction, a fundraiser put on by the Hays Area Children's Center. A few years ago I was in charge of this event, which was rewarding and fun, but it's nice to go as a guest and donor! An Everyday You gift certificate was auctioned off, and I can't wait to photograph the recipient next year!
Because I 1) love shooting at the Fox 2) love Christmas things 3) have a hard time leaving the cameras and home 4) support the Children's Center, I took a few pictures throughout the night:
Have I mentioned that I love the Fox? How cool is it?!
One of the beautiful trees sold as part of the fundraiser
It was quite a sight!
Every year Fred...I mean Santa.....helps out! What a great guy!
This is such a fun event with tons and tons of great holiday finds, good food, and a wonderful time! If you are interested in donating an item next year, contact the Hays Area Children's Center!
The Jones Family - Hays Kansas Family Photographer
The Jones family is the type of family that I love to see together. Whenever I see them, I can just tell how close they are, and how much they love each other. I just love photographing these girls (and guy!)
Last year I took Miss J's baby pictures, and in the fall we did family pictures, so I was ready to see these cuties again!
Miss I...so cute, and so lovin' having her picture taken!
Man oh man, is that not a mischievous look?
I love the berets! très jolie!
I love this one of mom and her girls.
One of the whole family.
Thank you for choosing me to hang out with your family - it means a lot :-)
...cause I'm swamped! Even though this is the case, I am having a super time with the process of editing Clint & Gina's super-awesome-way cool Halloween wedding...and because I CAN'T resist, no matter how crazy busy I am, here's just one for now.....
Honestly if I do say so myself, we were quite lucky to have this, it's not as if graffiti runs rampant in Hays America...ya know what I"m sayin'?
I am hoping to get the full preview up in the next day or two, I promise!!
