Behind the Scenes

We had a lively weekend here at our abode. Recently, we’ve had another couple move in with us–some good friends. And then this past weekend (which is still happening, since it is still Sunday), another couple of old friends visited. So in case you lost track, that means there were six of us staying at our house in all. The extra couple are some friends from ol’ Denton and Farm days. Lucky for us, one of them is a photographer. Her weekend-project was to take portraits of us.

We got some behind-the scenes shots. For instance, here is Ryan’s lovely sister photographed by Melissa (this is actually a test shot taken on Melissa’s phone. The real deal is on yet-to-be-developed film. Yep, not digital. She’s an artist).

I got to be her assistant.  Here, Melissa is taking a "test shot" on her phone.

And then, seeing Melissa do her art made me want to make some too. So I drew a picture.

A fun way to spend a Saturday evening!

See?  So fun.

See? So fun.

The next morning (i.e. this morning), she took more portraits inside.

It’s nice to have friends with skills.

  1. I can’t decide which picture I like the best. Well, I think it’s the last one – well, for sure.
    But I also like both of the ones of Ryan and Goldie (the ‘official’ one of them – and the one you drew). I cannot even begin to imagine how you could draw that so well. … or at all.
