As promised, the rest of Spencer's portraits! I had these portraits done at the end of July. We were lucky enough to have a friend's sister who was visiting do them, Lisa Maynard. She's based out of Tempe AZ, so there's only about a week or so each year that she's available here. I was thrilled to work with her. She was easy-going, sweet, fun, and talented (as you will see below)! Doug and I had a very hard time picking out our favorites from the 275 proofs we were given. After weeks and weeks of looking at them, we narrowed it down to our 11 we-can't-live-without-them pictures, and then purchased the digital files so we could print them as often as our hearts desired. [Which is more often than you would think!] I think what I love most is that she really captured the true "essence" of Spencer. So you won't see a lot of photos where he's looking at the camera smiling, but instead, he's doing what he does best... explore.
Family, I apologize since I'm completely ruining your Xmas gifts from Spencer, but consider this a way to let me know your preferences!
