  4. I love jump pictures. Especially when the whole wedding party jumps. Used to be just posed sittings, casual and action are just so much more fun to look at years from now. Great work.

  5. That looks like a ridiculous amount of fun. --And I believe you about the best family ever. They look awesome. =D I love that none of the adults are too dignified to be utterly silly.

  13. You are most definitely the Jump Whisperer.. or something. ;) I must try this sometime.. the snapping.. not the jumping. So far, Benny is my one and only, but consistent jump subject.

  15. that is NO JOKE about a family photo w/ that amount of ppl. even when we took our christmas family photo w/ numerous cameras!!! it was soooo hard that one nephew hid. it was an ALMOST successful photo even if everyone didn't look at the camera.

  19. The problem is - when I tell them to jump, I chop their heads off in the photo. Cute pics! (And a wonderful looking extended family!)

  25. There is something really beautiful about black and white images still to this day. Kind of like a brick home which even though it can be old, its got that timeless look to it. Richard from the Amish community of Lebanon,pa

  28. Beth,

    I love these. I've been dying to get a minute to email you. I am still in Europe. I was in Whitby England with other students from my college and we went to an Abby ruins that date back to 1078. I took my first jumping pics and loved it. The students and one professor who also jumped said it was the most fun ever. I can't email them to you have limited internet access, but I want you to see them and let me know what you think. I posted them on my facebook. My email on fb is eriejenn@yahoo.com and my fb name is JenniferSHiggins. I hope you like them. I can't wait to get home and see what you send me. I have thought of it often while here. I love the pink gerber. Those flowers seem to melt my heart every time I see them. Hope you are well.
    Jennifer
