Lee Family {family photography}

One of the best things about all the friends I made in my prior life as an educator, is the many connections I made…..both professionally and personally.  Cherry Lee was one of my teachers and not only is her daughter, Madi, one of my SENIOR REPS, but I also got to capture this beautiful family in their home.  If you ever get to meet this GORGEOUS mom, you will know how the beauty is not only on the outside but within as well.  Thanks Cherry for allowing me the honor of working with your beautiful family!

Until next time,

xoxo Anna

Jordan {high school senior photography}

October 6, 2013

Meet Jordan!  I am so lucky to have this handsome young man representing Anna MG Photography.  Jordan is currently a senior at Austin High School and likes to spend time at the beach so I had to find a location with a water feature.  He was more than happy to get into a pair of shorts and flip flops and step right into Bull Creek.  Jordan is a great example of what all young men should be like.  He was polite and respectful and did not even roll his eyes at me when I posed him.  Thank you Jordan and thank you Katherine for doing such a great job with your son!

 

Until next time,

xoxo Anna

Susan G. Komen Race

October 5, 2013

I had the awesome opportunity to walk the Komen Race in Houston.  I joined a team of 5 Hanna High School Class of ’77 classmates walking in celebration of our friend’s victory over breast cancer.  Myra has fought this battle and days before the race she had her first remission test and received the best news ever!  I am so proud of her and she is an inspiration to me and all women.  I am one of the lucky ones that has not had to deal with that horrible “C” word.  I can only pray that I will not encounter this in my lifetime, but we just never know.  It’s good to have close friends that will support you and hold your hand along this path.

Along the same lines, we were also celebrating my BFF’s decision to have a double mastectomy  because she carries the gene.  She has had some complications and it has taken a year for this process but it looks like she will soon be done!  Don’t know what I would do if any of my BFFs weren’t here to….well to do what BFFs do!

The other celebration, although it isn’t a cancer story, is the story of my friend who has recently begun the battle to lose weight and be healthy.  She has lost  a lot of weight and has started an exercise routine and this walk was her first 5K.  She was very excited and emotional.

I was amazed at the number of people that were participating and just how passionate they were about this event.  I watched at the finish line as the survivors came across.  I saw old women, young mothers carrying children, and really young ladies and realized that this horrible thing does not target a specific age group.  It does not care.  I’m really glad I did this!

Until next time,

xoxo Anna
