Sweet Reese














Some days I just enjoy my work so much that I don't know how to begin writing. It was wonderful having little Reese Pearce in with her mommy and daddy for first photos. I feel like I've known her mother, Valerie, all of her life and I could almost swear that she and Graham just got married two months ago but the calendar tells me it was two years ago. Little Miss Reese was an angel -- no crying or fussing -- and I had such a hard time narrowing down which photos to include in the blog that I just gave up and am putting a bunch of them up here. Reese had what I call "fancy pants" for her photos and we also borrowed her Daddy's ring for her to hold in a few photos. It was easy now for her to fit three fingers inside his ring but I know that won't last long. And, of course, some of the most special photos were of Reese taking a little rest on her Uncle RK's jacket with his fireman's helmet close by. I know she'll grow up hearing special stories about RK and I'll keep my memories of him from high school so I can share with her as well when she gets older. And, while I've got your attention and while it's on my mind, I just want to say "God Bless" to the wonderful men of the Conway Volunteer Fire Department. These men know why I'm saying this and I don't know how to say enough to them about their kindness, their patience, their compassion, and their professionalism. Have a good weekend everyone.

You did an amazing job with the photos of Reese. The pictures with RK's jacket and helmet, and reading your blog brought tears to my eyes! I don't know how Martha and Val will ever choose which pictures they want!

I will have to second all of what Kelly posted...you did a great job. You posted my favorite one of her with her Uncle RK's jacket and the other with her sleepy smile...there are so many good ones. Such a sweet post, and Val and Graham have such a sweet family.

I love the pictures and had a very emotional time watching the slide show on your official site. I think it is so neat that Reese shares the same initials as her Uncle RK. He has definitely been missed. What a special angel she has watching over her.
