To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.

Yes, finally!! These pictures are absolutely stunning. Lori did a wonderful job! You are such a beautiful family. I love all of them but my favs are: the one with the kids looking over the rail- (with Claire standing up, awwww!) and the first all black one, and the one of Marty with Sam. Marty, you are so beautiful. Love your sparkling eyes!

Claire's going to love this when she grows up...her entire family dressed except for her, ha ha!! It's so cute to see her baby chub! I can't wait to bite--er--see her Sunday!

Your photographer is an absolute genius. Where ever did you find her? You really need to give me her name. All kidding aside; I had a great time. This was alot of fun. How could anyone do wrong with such great subjects. Thanks for having us. Love you all.

Marty!!!

I don't know what to say! I can't think of any adjectives that say enough about how beautifully these turned out. I teared up. I can see the top one especially blown up and framed.

SemperFi - great job!
