Brenda #36 and Allen #37

Doing this project has made me realize that friendships never die. Old friends just seem to pick up where we left off...almost 50 years ago. I wish we had Facebook all those years, then we would have been able to keep up with everyone's life. Now we have just a few minutes to catch up. The reunions help a lot, but there is never enough time. 

To me, Brenda looks the same as she did in high school. Pretty blue eyes and sweet smile.

And I would recognize Allen anywhere. Big brown eyes and that grin that makes you wonder what's on his mind. Hummm. 

It was a joy photographing the two of them. Brenda has a great sense of humor and Allen is cool and calm. They just go together. 

Pictured below are Brenda and Allen's ninth grade pictures in the Cammack Junior High Yearbook.

This is one amazing couple! Thanks for being part of this project!

Edison #35

Edison was the first in line at the Huntington shoot last spring. You gotta hand it to him, he came without knowing what to expect and that takes guts! 

I was able to get lots of great shots of Edison. He was easy to pose...willing to try different angles to avoid the sun! 

I enjoyed spending time with Edison and getting to know him. He's a friendly guy with a welcoming smile, as you can tell by this image. Oh, and I can't forget that twinkle in his eye when he laughs! 

Thanks Edison for being a part of this project, and thanks for your patience.

Sue Ellen #34

This image was shot in North Myrtle Beach right across the street from Sue Ellen's condo. What a perfect day! Two years ago, Sue Ellen agreed to a "practice" shoot in the same spot. She knew what to expect...sun, breeze, spectators, and kids getting in the way. 

Sue Ellen is another Simms Elementary School graduate. I can just remember those wooden floors and that scary basement. Connecting with her at the reunions and the beach brings back wonderful memories. 

I hope I captured your "sunny" attitude in this shot. Your bright smile just makes this image. Thanks for helping me out with the first shoot and agreeing to participate in the project. Let's do lunch.
