Hello, Gorgeous!

Holly Polaroid

If anyone has wondered where Ilex gets her beauty, look no further. Meet Holly, my 'big' sister. (She just happens to be half my size...) Holly needed a new profile picture for her facebook page. I don't need to be asked twice. I took about seventy pictures, deleted only about 3, and had an impossible time deciding between the remaining 67. I had to share a few, of course.

Gorgeous

Holly is super-mom to three great kids. She lives in a beautiful old family farm house in the country. She cooks. She gardens. She homeschools. She does day-care in her home. She makes her home lovely. I don't think she sleeps much.

Holly 37

I almost didn't know what to do with an adult who stood or sat where I told her, managed to remain still and look in a specific direction, and could smile or look serious when asked.

I'm loving this photographer gig! Anyone (in my geographical vicinity) need a profile photo or portrait?

Great pix! I, too, am 37, but I know that there aren't any pictures that good of me floating around! My facebook shot is a windblown one from Nye Beach on Good Friday...

So just where in the Willamette Valley are you? We're in Corvallis :)

I stumbled upon your blog a while back and come back on occasion to "visit". I love the inspiration I get from blogs like yours....other mothers with a creative passion, and a love for their fmailies. Thanks for sharing! ...oh and if you find yourself here in Canada, I could really use some photos too ;-)
