the lion king

I’m terribly behind on blogging, and was going through pictures from December when I realized I hadn’t posted our trip to see the Lion King here! I’ll be doing some catchup on the blog and it’s not all sessions :)

The Lion King came to Detroit and Sean and I knew we had to get tickets to take Ares. It was the most wonderful experience. The show was awesome but it was even more amazing to me that here I was taking my bean to see something like this, it was a big deal when I was growing up to go to McDonalds once in a while, we were so poor and now here we have the program and a simba ( “his hair is like mine” ares said) and an autographed copy of the poster by the cast and a tee shirt – but better then that I got to sit through the first ten minutes of the show watching Ares wide eyed completely enraptured experiencing something so like magic to an almost four year old and I can’t imagine anything as beautiful as that. gah I have the greatest two guys it surprises me anew each day and I am always thankful for it.

We did a family portrait (any chance I get!)

family theater

The Detroit Opera House is so beautiful


and of course it’s so good to get to go Downtown and for a night at the theater, heaven (I forget over and over again how much I love to shoot at night, then I do it and it’s like oh my why don’t I do this more often!)

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
