When Love Comes Knocking - Valentine's Day in Parenthood

February 14, 2018  •  2 Comments

Pamira Bezmen Photography, award winning portrait photographer of New Jersey, DSC2592.3Pamira Bezmen Photography, award winning portrait photographer of New Jersey, DSC2592.3Valentine's Day by Pamira Bezmen Photography

 

Does anyone remember the Valentine's Days that were just celebrated between two adults enamored with each other? It was a lot of planning, dressing up, shopping, showering, prettying up with that one person in mind. An exciting process full of secrets and surprises until both of you eventually revealed it all later that evening.

Well, it's all a little different now. Like when love comes knocking on the door at any time of the day or night (and usually when you're in the bathroom), or when you receive your candy in a way you never have before (stuck under your slippers maybe), or when your biggest admirer showers you with so much love (and a slobbery runny winter sneeze) that you can't stand it any more!

Oh yeah! You know you are a parent when your Valentine's Days have changed forever, but you also know you would not have it any other way!

Have a happy, peaceful and memorable V-Day, everyone! Make this one about family and love! Let those babes sit on your lap and feel all the love you have for them! And if there is time, try to have a toast with the bigger love - the one who was there before it all...

 

Love,

-Pamira

 

A special Valentine's Day Gift from Pamira:

Come out and have a day with champagne and chocolate in my studio! Bring just yourself, your partner or your best girlfriend. I will pamper you to a beautiful photo shoot, and your first professional print enlargement will be my gift to you.

Why you should book a professional photoshoot in winter | award-winning NJ photographer

January 20, 2018  •  1 Comment

Pamira Bezmen Photography, NJ Award winning child photographerPamira Bezmen Photography, NJ Award winning child photographerWinter photographs by award winning New Jersey photographer Pamira Bezmen, www.pamirabezmenphotography.com

 

I know most of us love to book our photo shoots in warmer months, to celebrate spring blossoms, to capture summer blooms in the sun, or to preserve the beauty of our family against the colorful fall foliage.

But I want to let you know that there is an overlooked sister season out there that deserves more love: The Winter!

 

 

Here are the top 3 reasons I recommend booking your photo shoot in winter:
 

 

1. IF YOU LIKE THE STUDIO LOOK, THE ALTERNATIVES ARE ENDLESS FOR THE LOOK YOU WANT.

 

Because you are not limited to weather outdoors, your photographer can create ANY look you want in a studio.  You want to be lying in a bed of flowers? Done. You want a vintage romantic theme with lace and tulle? Done. Baby in a basket? 4 generations in ball gowns? You want something timeless, classy, modern, cute or sexy? Done, done, and done. 

Family, head shots, boudoir, couples, generations, fine art ... Bring it on!

In the studio, your photographer can create any look you want, regardless of the season.

 

 

2. IF YOU ARE NOT AFRAID OF THE OUTDOORS, YOU CAN GET RARE AND GORGEOUS PORTRAITS IN WINTER.

 

How many beautiful fall photos have you seen in your life?  Probably quite a few.

Summer and spring?  Likewise, probably many.

But if I ask you how many amazing winter portraits you've seen, it's probably not that many.  The reason is that winter is underrated, and the mucky bluish tint of the snow or the bare trees is not easy to manage for amateur photographers.

But for a professional who knows what she's doing, a snowy day is a precious gem waiting to be captured.  And you can be in it!

 

 

3. IT'S EASIER TO GET A BOOKING WITH A GREAT PHOTOGRAPHER IN WINTER.

 

Because many people like to schedule their photo shoots for the other seasons, professional photographers tend to have more flexible schedules in winter months.

 

There you have it!  There are probably other reasons, but I hope that I've given you enough motivation to emerge out of your hibernation for a couple of hours to go and have a photo shoot.  And of course, if you're in or around Essex County, I'd love to hear from you and talk about how I can make gorgeous winter portraits for you.

 

Enjoy that beautiful Winter!

-Love

Pamira

 

The image at the top of this post has been captured outdoors, in real snow. Nobody got cold, upset or wet. We made about gorgeous images in a short amount of time, and everyone involved had an amazing time!  (and the apple got eaten in the end)

Welcoming our new First Family | Mayor Davis & Family Portraits for Essex Fells Magazine

December 24, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Recently I met the publisher and owner of Essex Fells Magazine, Dennis Jankowski, at a fundraiser event.  Sweet and charming as they come, he convinced me that I could photograph the next cover story for them with a couple of days' notice :)

 

When I got the opportunity to photograph our new mayor with his family for the January 2018 issue of Essex Fells Magazine -- despite a rather tight timeline to plan and submit portraits to the editors in the middle of the Thanksgiving holidays -- I knew I wanted to be a part of this project.  What an exciting new start for them, and for all of us as a community to give them a warm welcome!

 

A sincere and smart family all around, I am honored to get to know the Davises, and to make these memories for them to remember for years.

Here are some of the images we selected for the magazine.  You can follow the cover story next month when the magazine is delivered in the mail :)

 

Welcome, Mayor Davis!  Welcome Davis Family!  And thank you, Dennis, for making me a part of this welcome!

 

Love,

-Pamira

Sweeter Than Candy Photo Gifts | NJ award winning photographer Pamira Bezmen

Did you trick or treat? Did you collect five pounds of pure sugar? Did you give out little tangerines with Jack O' Lantern faces drawn on them?  Or are your kids already too big for Halloween, leaving you nostalgic?

Whichever it was, hopefully you had a wonderful Halloween!

Well, the biggest candy night of the year is behind us, but the sweetness of fall is not half way over yet!

Come out and play, do an outdoor portrait session in the woods, or let me dress you up in the studio.  Bring your mom, dad, grandparents. Gather the grand-kids. Drag the puppy along.  Make a gift for yourself. Make a gift for someone you love.

Sweeter than candy is the gift of memories.  You can gift a session. Or you can gift prints, albums, or jewelry from a session you've already had.

To make it easy and fun for you, I will do all the packaging, wrapping, mailing, and coordinating.  I will cater to you and handle every single detail.
To top that off, have your first Fine Art print on me for any session you book until November 21st, 2017.
That is a $150 value! 

Remember to mention SWEETER THAN CANDY when you call for your consultation.

What to Wear for Fall Outdoor Family Portraits | NJ family photographer

November 03, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Pamira Bezmen Photography, Fall Family Portraits, NJ family photographerPamira Bezmen Photography, Fall Family Portraits, NJ family photographer

 

We are being blessed by a lovely warm October, so outdoor sessions are going rather pleasantly.  I wanted to write a blog post about what to wear for fall family portraits for an outdoor session because this is a question I'm getting from a lot of you.

 

Here I will share my couple of cents and link some images that are good family wardrobe combinations that I like.

 

1.  FIRST DECISION TO MAKE: What is the look you want to go for?  Upscale, fun, artsy, vintage, outdoorsy, warm and fuzzy or light and breezy...

When coordinating family outfits, you should keep in mind that everyone's look should speak the same language. You can't have one wearing thick sweaters and winter accessories while another is wearing light and breezy fabrics.  You can't have mom in an evening gown when dad is wearing a plaid shirt and lumberjacks. You get my point :)

 

2. PICK YOUR PALETTE.

Warm or cool.  Pick one.

 

3. DO YOU WANT TO CONTRAST OR BLEND WITH THE SCENERY?

If you prefer a bit more of a pop, go with creams or whites or a deep warm color so you glow against the colorful fall foliage.  If you would like to be in harmony with the scenery, then pick a color from nature that we are likely to find a lot of in the spot where we will be shooting.

(Tip: tell me ahead of time if you love yellows or reds or oranges, and I will try to find a spot that has mostly your favorite color)

 

4. GO SHOPPING IN YOUR CLOSET.

Decide if you are wearing jeans or dresses or corduroy pants.  Decide if you are wearing sweaters or jackets.  Decide if you are wearing winter accessories. 

Put together what you have and see how they look. 

Pick a couple of neutral colors, one darker tone, and one main "color", and maybe some coordinating secondary colors.

Tip: Don't overdo color so that you don't look like a bunch of autumn Easter eggs. There will already be plenty of color in nature, so you want to minimize distractions. After all, it's about your family and not the outfits.

Examples of neutrals: Cream, beige, gray, tan
Examples of darker colors: Denim, brown, navy (try to coordinate with the neutral in terms of warm or cool)
Examples of main colors: Mustard yellow, mauve, brown, olive green, moss green, rust, sienna, burnt orange, deep red, burgundy, warm yellow, maroon
Examples of secondary colors: Choose a neighboring second color to your main color or add similar tones of your main color.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. CONSIDER THE TEMPERATURE.

It's no fun trying to let your true self out to be captured by the camera while clenching your teeth or shivering. 

I try to have back up warmth in my bag for you, but please remember to dress accordingly. Remember tights or socks or inner shirts if the weather calls for additional layers.

 

6. LAYER.

When outdoors, we are not always able to have access to a changing facility. It's a good idea to layer your outfits and bring easy to change accessories, so that we can get a few different looks in the same session. This will give you more variety to choose from for your wall portraits and also add more fun to your family album.

 

7. BE OPEN TO PLAYFUL & EXTRAORDINARY OPTIONS. Pamira Bezmen Photography, NJ award-winning portrait photographer, DSC1244.4Pamira Bezmen Photography, NJ award-winning portrait photographer, DSC1244.4

I always like to add in a touch of "artsy" or "whimsical" to my photo shoots. 

It's a lot of fun when we add a crazy tutu dress, an extravagant crown, some vintage materials or hand-made knits to a session as a second or third look once we've already gotten our every day look taken care of. 

I believe this makes the shoot so much more fun, and it gives you an option to get a Fine Art Portrait out of your outdoor family session. 

This image on the right is one of those fine art portraits I'm talking about. I made this dress and head piece just for her, and this beautiful little lady absolutely rocked her shoot!

 

Tip:  I will always ask for your favorite colors and feeling about certain looks before the shoot, and usually show up with something hand-made just for you.  If you have some cool or crazy ideas, bring them on!

 

8. REMEMBER TO BRING OUT THE REAL YOU!

If you have a particular style that makes you "you", try to keep loyal to that in a tasteful way. We want your portraits to look beautiful, but more importantly, we want them to tell YOUR STORY to the next generations. The same goes for the kids. Let them pick some items they LOVE, and they will be more likely to give us their best smiles during the shoot.

 

Hope this is helpful! Happy fall and happy memory-making everyone!

-Love,

Pamira

PRESERVE THE MAGIC OF THEIR CHILDHOOD

She will always protect her, love, cherish and tolerate her.
She will always be able to lean on her, trust her, and bathe in her unconditional love.
They will not remember how little they were once, and how precious in our eyes. They will not fathom how their every little toe, and every shiny strand of hair was a work of art to us. But they will have their stories told to them, time after time, and they will have photographs that have frozen their magical moments. THAT will make their childhood live on for as long as they live.

 

Interested in scheduling your own family portrait session? Call 862-812-2313 or e-mail us now for a complimentary consultation.  Or send us your contact info, and we will call you at your preferred time to chat. 

 

Looking forward to speaking soon!

The story of the above image:

These are the last days of green out there. I have been obsessing about having an image like this surrounded by lush greens all summer long, and we were able to catch it just in time before the leaves started turning. For the next few weeks we will have a parade of colors, and I can't wait to get those, but for now I'm loving this lush green portrait. More than the greenery, I love that I was able to get my cherub staring at me while nursing while I can still hold her in my arms like a baby. These days go fast, and before I know it she will be too big for this.
Thank you to my family for helping me bring the images in my imagination into the day light. Thank you for your patience with me while I obsess on every trail and bush about the light and the texture. Thank you for trusting me to step into the woods, marsh and weeds when the mission calls for it

Love you all!

 


Eliana's Newborn Session | New Jersey family photographer Pamira Bezmen

It was such an honor to photograph sweet, determined and elegant Little Miss Eliana on the 7th day of her precious life.  I met her wonderful family back in 2014 when we photographed her big brother Vincent when he was about the same size :)

I feel extremely privileged to be able to grow with my families, and be a part of their journeys in life.  With every box of prints and every album, I send a part of my heart home with them.

Here are some images from our session...  Introducing Miss Eliana Michelle...

 

Sweet little Eliana, you are elegant, fair and lovely as a flower. I was absolutely taken by your quiet but strong presence. What an honor it is to be photographing you, 3 years after photographing your brother Vincent. May your life be lovely and peaceful in every way...

-Pamira

_DSC8417.1Miss Eliana, Newborn portraits, Pamira Bezmen Photography, www.pamirabezmenphotography.comI know I usually post images of solo babes on my page, but don't be misled. As much as every photo shoot is focused on preserving the beauty of our babies, the single most important memory we can leave for them is the memory of being loved, protected and cherished in the arms of their doting family - that is US! It means that I strongly encourage every single mom and dad and grandparent to step in front of my camera and BE in the photos with their precious little angels. Because I know that 10, 20, 30 years from now, these are going to be the images they will look at with warmth in their hearts. Here is gorgeous little Miss Eliana, in the loving embrace of her mom, dad and big brother Vincent <3

It means that I strongly encourage every single mom and dad and grandparent to step in front of my camera and BE in the photos with their precious little angels. Because I know that 10, 20, 30 years from now, these are going to be the images they will look at with warmth in their hearts.
Here is gorgeous little Miss Eliana, in the loving embrace of her mom, dad and big brother Vincent <3

Hello friends, old and new!  Here we are, wrapping up another art fair.  The rush of setting up the exhibit, the long days, and the muscle soreness in the morning is nothing compared to the joy of seeing you all!  There is nothing quiet as invigorating as receiving your sweet words of encouragement, kind compliments, and the excitement of meeting new friends!

 

So thank you all, for stopping by, for giving me your hugs and love, and new friends, thank you for putting your trust in me to make new memories for you and your loved ones.

 

One of the thrills of Art Fairs for me is seeing my beloved clients and models next to their framed portraits.  Sometimes, it's the first time they see their images professionally printed. It is super exciting and emotional for all of us!

 

Here are some snap shots from our weekend together. Thanks again, and I look forward to seeing you all in front of my camera, very soon!

 

Love,

- Pamira

I wanted to capture Delaney's delicate but determined stance and graceful poise in life in this image.  I wanted the warm colors to reflect her warm personality and have her "pop" against the darker background with her light skin, just the way she "pops" from a crowd of people in real life.

(Delaney is a survivor and her story deserves a whole blog on its own.  All I can say is that she is an inspiration to many, and she has my heart.)

I hand finished this portrait by printing it on 100% cotton fine art paper, hand tearing the edges and painting them with gold. Miranda's mom and dad will be taking this frame home this week :)

A Summer Abroad | NJ Family Photographer Pamira Bezmen Photography

September 08, 2017  •  1 Comment

It sounds so European to say "We spent the summer abroad", doesn't it?  With all the implied sense of adventure, free spirit, and joy embedded in that simple sentence.  And it's all true, there is all of it included, and then some. 

 

After a 2 year break we took to have our daughter Luna, we resumed our tradition of going back "home" to my birth country, Turkey, this time with 2 children.  As much as we are proud and devoted American citizens, I'm a firm believer of keeping connections tight with the "old country", wherever that may be, as it instills a strong sense of belonging and culture in the children, rooted in a wider understanding of the world and appreciation of differences that makes us who we are.

 

The whole trip was lovely, and exciting, and even a little bit boring at times, just like being home.  And the duties of changing diapers, nursing a feverish teething baby into the wee hours of the morning followed me across the Atlantic Ocean onto the hills of ancient Istanbul and into the gentle waves of the Mediterranean Sea.  The days were hot and the nights were long. The children stayed up as late as the parents did, and sometimes fell asleep on our laps at dinner tables.  Sometimes we fell asleep while the kids were still wide awake.

It was a dream come true for my older daughter Shaya to be reunited with her beloved cousin Pia.  It appeared as if time stopped for them and they were transported into a world of cousin life. Magical creatures, baby dolls, imaginary stories, running up and down the house making a mess on all the floors, eating half a breakfast with us upstairs and another half with my brother and sister-in-law downstairs, friendly sharing and sibling rivalry all in one.  Making up for lost time in the way that only children can, I think the girls lived these 5 weeks more fully than did any of the adults.

 

The children's never-ending laughter and arguments spiced up the time in a roller coaster, giving them a reason to understand what family is.  There to love and support you unconditionally, get on your nerves like no one else can, and to offer themselves up to you unmasked... What great honor and joy to see it through the eyes of our children again...  At the ripe ages of 42 and 41, my brother and I are not so far off from exactly that.  Maybe we don't pull Barbie dolls from one another's hands, but the rest is all the same. 

 

Seeing old friends, exchanging hugs, stories, congratulations, condolences... 5 weeks is just long enough to pretend you've never left, but also short enough that it's over in the blink of an eye...

After a bit of jet lag, we are reporting back to our lives in NJ.  Our hearts full of memories, and my memory cards jam-packed with RAW files that need to be sorted out. There is easily 6 months of retouching material in there, if I had the time! Ha! That may not be happening, but I am fast and furious diving into my new sessions and clients' galleries.

 

I hope that you've all had a memorable and magical summer, and I can't wait to see you soon in the coming months.  Remember, these are the last few weeks of warm outdoor photo shoots before we turn into cooler days and fall foliage.  If you have an end-of summer or fall outdoor session in mind, please let me know soon.  Also, if you want to take the whole family out to an art fair soon, please come and visit me at the Anderson Park Fine Art Fair on September 16 and 17, 2017. (Show hours are 10 am to 5pm, rain or shine. Admission is free to all and there is free parking around the park.)

See you soon!

Love,

This is an original Teddy Bear, from my beloved, late father's childhood. He was born in 1936.

To think that my daughter is snuggling with it in 2017 - 81 years later - is really precious.

This is one way she is able to connect with her grandfather, via the straw-filled Teddy, with torn up feet and hands,

which have been repaired with a glue gun and duct tape :)

One of the priceless benefits of visiting the childhood home is connecting the babies with heirloom objects like this one. 

Now Luna has a memory with Teddy, too :)

Wrapping up another Brookdale Park Fine Art Fair | NJ Photographer Pamira Bezmen

June 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Pamira Bezmen Photography, Brookdale Art Fair, June 2017, IMG_4482_1024Pamira Bezmen Photography, Brookdale Art Fair, June 2017, IMG_4482_1024Pamira Bezmen Photography, New Jersey award winning photographer, Brookdale Fine Art and Craft Fair, Rose Squared Productions, www.pamirabezmenphotography.com

 

It's always a rush putting up an exhibit at the local Fine Art and Craft Fair.  We happily survived yet another one last weekend as Pamira Bezmen Photography Studio - and when I say "studio", I mean "the whole family", because truly these art fairs are a family affair.  Just like raising a child, I can say it takes a village!

 

First, my husband and I had to set up the tent in the rain on Friday evening. (Before that, he had to rush home from work, we had to load up the cars, leave the kids with my mom and step-dad, and before that I had to prepare every single display item by hand, order hardware for framing and hanging, put together each frame, organize chairs, tables, table cloths, business cards, etc... but I'll fast forward through that part).

Setting up the tent in the rain was not as bad as our first time doing it 4 years ago when neither of us had ever attended an art fair as an exhibitor or set up a large tent this size (10ft x 10ft) before, and we had to figure out where each piece went from the instruction manual under a torrential rain and thunder storm.  At that point we did not have my mom to help with the baby, so we had our little one with us to add excitement to the set-up process!  Looking back at it now, it appears as a funny memory. It was not so funny back then!  (yes, yes, I am laughing now!)

 

Just to give you an idea, this is what the tent looks like at the beginning:

Pamira Bezmen Photography, New Jersey award winning photographer, Brookdale Fine Art and Craft Fair, Rose Squared Productions, www.pamirabezmenphotography.comPamira Bezmen Photography, New Jersey award winning photographer, Brookdale Fine Art and Craft Fair, Rose Squared Productions, www.pamirabezmenphotography.comPamira Bezmen Photography, New Jersey award winning photographer, Brookdale Fine Art and Craft Fair, Rose Squared Productions, www.pamirabezmenphotography.com Pamira Bezmen Photography, New Jersey award winning photographer, Brookdale Fine Art and Craft Fair, Rose Squared Productions, www.pamirabezmenphotography.comPamira Bezmen Photography, New Jersey award winning photographer, Brookdale Fine Art and Craft Fair, Rose Squared Productions, www.pamirabezmenphotography.comPamira Bezmen Photography, New Jersey award winning photographer, Brookdale Fine Art and Craft Fair, Rose Squared Productions, www.pamirabezmenphotography.com

 

Ha ha!  Yep! It's surely an engineering project. You can see the little hand written cheat tags I taped to the bars, so that we could remember which went where.  However, this time, I did ask myself if it would have been faster to just figure things out without the tags because somehow reading a tag titled "Right back back upper left door inner" did not make a lot of sense to me standing in the middle of a park, staring at a box filled with 60 bars that looked exactly the same! Each of which had an equally confusing title tag. Like this one: "Upper Left Back Front".  Hmmm...

Why I thought these descriptors were spot on when I created them 4 years ago, I have no clue.  They are surely not useful when setting up the tent.  (In fairness to myself from 4 years ago, the tags magically start making sense AFTER all the pieces have been put together.  I was like "Aaaaaah, yeahhhh, that's what it means!)

 

So, this was my husband and I putting together the tent on Friday, in part sun, part rain weather. And, get this: not even a single argument! High five, Shawn & Pamira!

Much better!!!! :)

 

Despite the rains on Saturday and tropical humidity on Sunday, it was a wonderful weekend overall.  It is such a true pleasure showing my work to my old and new friends.  It is lovely meeting new clients and talking about how I can use my photography to make treasured memories for them.  It is an honor to be considered to be your memory-maker for the coming generations and to carry the faces of your precious babies, mothers, fathers, siblings and grandparents into the future.

Thank you to all of you for coming to visit my tent. Thank you to my dear husband for believing in me and my art so much to spend his Father's Day working along my side at the fair. Thank you to my dear mom and step-dad for caring for our babies while we were at the Brookdale Park, so that we did not have to worry about how they were doing without us.

 

Thank you to all my old clients who stopped by to give me their hugs and support.  And thank you to all my new friends who signed up for my newsletter.  This, I hope will be the start of a long-lasting relationship of years of working together to make memories for your family.  Keep an eye peeled for the drawing for the complimentary portrait session (the announcement is coming soon).  And please feel free to reach out to me any time to discuss your next photography project.

Maternity, Generations, Newborn, Glamour, Couples, Babies, Adults, Personal Branding, Film Noir Fitness Portraits, indoor and outdoor...  You have a beautiful face, and I have a passion to capture it!

 

Talk soon!

Love,

-Pamira

Exhibit at the Spring Fine Art & Crafts Fair, Brookdale Park, New Jersey Photographer

June 09, 2017  •  Leave a Comment
You are invited to BOOTH # 268 ...
 
 
 
After taking a year off to have my baby, I will be exhibiting at the Spring Fine Art and Crafts Fair again. Come out and visit me at Brookdale Park (Montclair/Bloomfield, New Jersey) next weekend, June 17-18. The show will be open rain or shine, from 10am to 5pm both days, and admission is free to all. I'd love to see my old friends and clients and meet new faces.
 
Feel free to share this invitation with your friends, too. I will be giving away one complimentary photo session at the end of the weekend.  The winner will be randomly selected by one of my daughters.  All you need to do is visit me at my booth and sign up for my newsletter.
And as usual, I have gifts for my loyal clients who refer me to their friends.  I also have some studio samples I will be retiring.  If any of the retiring samples have your sweet face on them, you are welcome to take one home with you, after taking a picture with me :) 
 
In honor of Father's Day, if you book a session during the show weekend, you will get a $50 gift voucher from me towards your print order.
 
The Brookdale Fine Art and Craft Show is a curated show, full of amazing local and visiting artists and vendors from NJ and across the United States. The organizers Janet and Howard Rose of Rose Squared Productions, Inc. are two of the most experienced organizers in the show industry, and have been putting together these shows for decades. They cherry-pick the artists and make sure that every detail is taken care of, from security to parking, in order to create a family friendly and safe day for all of us.  There will be food at the fair, lots to look at, and old and young trees of Brookdale Park that will be lending you their shade.  Gather up the family, pack  your bug spray and come out for a day at the park.
 
I am excited to be coming out to meet you all and show you some of my work. Hope to see you soon :)
 
Love,
-Pamira
 
 
Below are some snap shots from past art fairs...
 
 
What I look like at my booth :)
 
The tent from the outside may have signage and some hanging art, depending on which side you are coming from.  Make sure you walk the show in both directions because it's easy to miss a ton of goodness while you are focused on the booths that are directly on your side of the path. I like to go down on one side and then walk back on the other side. You never know what you miss if you just do one round :)
 
This is my husband Shawn. He fills in for me if I am with the kids or have to take a quick break.  If you run into him, you can leave your information, and we can give you a call when I return to the booth.  He can also provide some basic information about what I do.
 
And this is me at another one of the past fairs. I hope that we won't need the extra cardigans this time, and the weather will be lovely.  Fingers crossed!
