Being a Navy Brat I absolutely LOVE to travel! Since marrying and settling down here in the great state of Indiana I now have a more permanent "homestead". One of the things I love about my job is that I get just enough travel to make life interesting. I leave tomorrow for Vegas to shoot a wedding for two very special people and seeing as how our Colts didn't bring home the bacon I want to move that post on down the line (sounding very southern here...did live in NC for quite a while). Not too long ago my parents gave me the gift of all the slides from my childhood. My father is quite a fantastic photographer as well as a surgeon and our travels were well-documented. We lived in the Philippines for the first six year of my life. I graduated from Kindergarten there! I have many memories and looking at these images I thought I would share. I don't often put up personal pictures, but this year I might do a little more of that. Memories are after all what I love to capture--and that includes my own family. Mom and Dad, I'm so glad we found each other. I couldn't have asked for a richer life. I like for images to be honest and true so I did not manipulate any of these images. These came right out of my father's pentax camera, which he used to use for capturing before and after pictures of surgery as well as whatever art he chose to create with landscapes and family. I know some are blurry, but I love my mother's smile. Funny, now that I am married I can appreciate the smiles and moments between my parents. I hope our kids will look back on our adventures and feel the same sense of pride I feel for my parents and their dedication to working at marriage and appreciating each other.

    Robyn,

    Glad to know I’m not boring everyone with family photos:) They are fun images! I can taste the coconut and smell the fish market just looking at these. My first memory of Christmas was in the Philippines. It was magic. Can’t wait to find the pics of my brother, Bill, eating mud:)

    Hope you and Bernie are well! WE miss you guys!
