pear tree photography is in arizona!

We have relocated! We are now based in Gilbert Arizona. While we miss the East, we are having a great time here. For example: we went swimming on Monday, and I think today was the first kind of cloudy day we've had since the monsoon season ended. Love it here!

We're taking a vacation for a couple of weeks, so check back for pictures of Utah and the Republic of Georgia!

Also, I'm working on Christmas cards and will be ready to schedule your shoots as soon as we get back from our trip!

name that machine

my kids can tell me what all these dials belong to (and probably what they do, too). can you?

happy father's day

hope all the menfolk know that they are appreciated! thanks for having the courage to have a family, to take on all our problems :) to provide for us day after day--and still have a smile on.

here's a shot from today: the "mormon" temple in kensington, m.d. just outside of d.c. here is some background info on this beautiful building. they often have great free concerts, lectures, etc. at the visitor's center. check it out if you are in the area.

the grounds are also beautiful--especially i loved these calla lilies.

rain rain go away

incessant rain makes me grouchy. we finally just went out to puddle jump, thus creating fond childhood memories out of yucky weather. i hope. lo the pictures:
