The Thorne Family Portraits

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

A couple of weekends ago, I stopped by our friend Lindsey’s house to take a couple of portraits of her adorable family.  I feel certain you guys all know Lindsey by now, the unstoppable force behind LRT Be Pretty that makes brides (and really everyone) look like goddesses.  I wanted to practice taking portraits with my brand new (but actually used) film camera and she offered up her sweet little boy for my practice session.  I also brought my digital camera just in case things went awry.  The roll of colored film turned out entirely too dark because of a thunderstorm that was happening, but I really love some of the ones we captured with the b+w film and digital.  I can’t imagine a more delightful way to spend a sunday morning than with these lovely people.

Outdoor Movie Night

Monday, August 25, 2014

Luckily the rain held off this past Saturday so we could have our movie night outside, just as we had envisioned.  It was a casual affair that basically consisted of blankets and pillows scattered about on the grass along with some of Colleen’s patio furniture and folding chairs brought by neighbors.  We did make a few snacks and had a table that included some movie theater appropriate items.  Colleen and Corey showed The Fantastic Mr. Fox, one of their favorite Wes Anderson movies, which ended up being a great idea since it was both adult and kid friendly.  We borrowed the sound equipment, projector, and screen from their neighbor Jamie, who was also kind enough to come over and help set everything up.  The screen he built himself from pvc pipes and a painters cloth.  Now those are some serious DIY skills.    Of course, in typical Colleen and Megan fashion, we neglected to take any pictures of the movie setup or any people during the party.  Fortunately, Colleen was able to steal a photo of the kids around the screen taken by her neighbor Katie.  Thanks Katie!  All in all I would say it was a perfect evening to end the summer before school started again this week.


Colleen and Corey were pug sitting this week so Leila helped us get ready for the party.  Mostly by making weird snorty noises and trying to trip us while we walked.  Since she was a pivotal member of the party planning team, I am glad she could make a blog appearance.

Friday Wins

Friday, August 22, 2014

Happy happy Friday!  Thought I would pop in to wish everyone a wonderful weekend.  This weekend, Colleen and I have a last minute outdoor movie night planned at her house.  However, due to a crappy forecast, the outdoor portion of that plan might have to be removed.  Boooooo.   We aren’t doing much because we are both swamped right now with work, etc., but we are throwing together a couple special little touches

Movie night before blogHope everyone has a spectacular weekend.  Or at least a relaxing one.
