The Smithe Family – Part 1

This is my first official 2 part blog post.  Most of the time blogs are in 2 parts for weddings and such…and this event was equally as grand.  My friend Maureen and her sisters put together this AMAZING birthday party for their mom, Mary.  Just imagine sipping cocktails…next to a pond…while the sun is setting…oh, and there’s a hammock! This was by far one of the coolest events I’ve had the opportunity to shoot.  I gave a sneak peek a few posts back…and now I give you the mother-load!  Well…at least part 1….
