The Manning Family

The Manning family.... I have absolutely nothing but niceness to say about this family.... they are gorgeous, and super nice and alot of fun to hang out with.... And we got lucky with the weather - it was supposed to rain, but God blessed with an unbelievably comfortable morning.... the colors were gorgeous!

And guess what? There were twins in the family - and I got to photograph them! I was so excited - and dadgum if I didnt get lucky and they were super cute to boot! Ok, for some reason, when there is a set of something, I like for things to be matchy-matchy so I did these two to be hung up together....

And how cute is this guy.... hmmm, ladies, you will have to ask his mom if he's single....

Back to the twins, one of my main goals was to get both of their personalities in one frame as many times as I could.... I dont think I did too bad.... (ok, to be honest, these are some of my absolute favorites)

How sweet is this!

Another mom and son one!

Ok, these next two.... could these not be ads for some cute children's clothes or something?

I so loved this family and thank them for giving me the opportunity to work with them - I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Also, if you are looking for some super-rad, super-cute custom designed cards.... you should check out the Manning daughter - Jenny, she is so talented at what she does and you will not be disappointed.... you can view her site at http://jennyhollowaydesigns.blogspot.com/ but get ready to ooooohhhhh and aaaahhhhhh...... I so want that owl card!

And as a special bonus to all my faithful readers.... I am now "canning for comments" - for every comment I get from today until oh-lets-say, next Wednesday, then I will donate a can of food to our local food pantry. So its all up to you, show some love for me and for the needy all in one easy step.... yeah, thats how I roll..... oh, and dont feel like they all have to be on this one post - although the Mannings are awesome, feel free to share the love around.... :)

As always.... feel free to email me at talleyimages@yahoo.com if you have any questions or just want to chat.

I will be one of the first to comment! We had such a blast getting our pictures made. It could have been very stressful, with so many different personalities, but you were so patient and low-key that none of us felt stressed at all! We have had so many compliments on the pictures so far (although I am now on a diet!), so I expect that you will have much business from the "Manning-Holloway" promotional.
Jenny wrote about you tonight on her blog.
Once again, thank you! We will definitely do it again as soon as the weather allows (would love to have some spring pictures!)
BTW, yes, Jeff is single (never been attached, ladies!) So...
Thanks and have a great week!
Donna Manning
