i hate to wake you up... part two

But they did anyway.

Man, I am getting significantly less sleep. I need friends who promise to stay put.

Bart and Janssen. You really can't have one with out the other. In fact my kids call them Bartonjanssen. Bart frequents their abuse by being called Janssen, and hilarity ensues.

We will miss these guys so much. We've made a lot of history in the short time they have been here, and I'm so glad that I was able to take their pictures if only to have them immortalized in my vast files of photos forever.

They're totally coming back to see us though. Totally.

Dang it, Ralphie! You are not going to make picking one for the Christmas card or the wall easy!

Shall maybe have to send Halloween cards too.

I was hoping to see Bart IN the basket, but whatever. . . : )

Beautiful pictures. I'm sure you are going to miss your friends. I'm about in tears for all of you.

Kristy August 14, 2009 at 11:49 PM  

I'm a friend of those two gorgeous models...

...and you are a really great photographer. I wish you lived in my neighborhood so you could make me look soooo good!

Also I'm sure we'd be very good friends. :)

Merrick August 15, 2009 at 10:13 AM  

Please move to Utah so you can take beautiful pictures of me. It will be so hard to match the level of Christmas cards that Janssen and Bart send good...

Excellent job...they both look stunning!

Highly covetable shots. I WOULD say I wound up here because of Janssen's link...but truth is, I'm one of those secretly subscribed to your I would have found them anyway.

Hi, I'm Ange, and I'm a Voyeur.
"Hi Ange!"
/shaking head in shame

Seriously though, I've been subscribed since the last time Janssen linked to you...because I admire your photography!

Alison Stewart August 16, 2009 at 6:29 PM
