Jasmin - the Photographer. . . . . . . .

. . . . . . . . who will also be our chauffeur to the airport tomorrow.

I love to take photos of Jasmin. . . . . . and she takes wonderful 
photos too.

She was the official photographer at the birthday party on Saturday and
 took some fabulous shots, such as this one of the 'birthday boy', her first
 cousin once removed, cute Colin, and his daddy. 

Trying frosting from his cupcake, a new taste perhaps. . . . . . . 

. . . . . and this one when some of the other little guests were getting tired and cranky,
 but Colin was as happy as can be celebrating turning ONE!

Jasmin is starting a photography business. 
There's a lot of competition out there in that field but many of us have already
 discovered she is very talented. She has a great eye for composition, takes
 great portrait shots, as well as landscapes, antiques, flowers, architecture, and
 just about everything else.

Please wish her good luck and, if you're in this area and would like to 
hire her for a photo shoot, this proud grandma will be happy to put you in
 touch with her! 


  1. Dear Mary - your grandchildren and your great grandchild are all lovely looking people, and must be a joy to you and Bob.
    Is Jasmine still singing? I recall that like one of my granddaughters she was a keen member of her school choir.
    Good luck to her in the new photography venture - I think that she must have inherited some of your artistic eye.
    Happy and safe travels to you and Bob.

    1. Jasmin will always love to sing Rosemary - and I'm hoping later she will get back into a chorus/choir. She misses that part of her life but is busy trying some new things now. . . . . . . . . .as we all did, and should do, when young, passionate and adventurous!
      I hope your granddaughter still sings. Thanks for your kind comments - families are always special.
      Hugs - Mary

  2. Lovely photos! Yes, I wish Jasmin all the best!

    1. Thank you Vee - she certainly seems to enjoy the camera - definitely a creative soul!
      I'll catch up with you when I get back - meanwhile take care.

  3. Talented, obviously smart, and beautiful. Great combination! xo

    1. Thanks so much Nancy - she is my special girl!

  4. Boa tarde, linda família repletos de felicidade, Jasmin conseguiu belas fotos de bons momento.
    Feliz semana,

    1. Obrigado Antonio - semana feliz a você.
      Mary -

  5. Lovely photos. Jasmin is very talented.

  6. Can't wait to have Jasmin take photos of my granddaughter, Madison when she visits me here in NC!

  7. Yes, Jasmine definitely has an eye for composition and take it from me from someone who has worked with art direction of photography and photographers my entire career. These are wonderful photos. Haha, it's sooo nice seeing that there is someone else out there who knows the correct terminology for discerning what cousin is what. Indeed-- once removed here and her child and Colin--will be 2nd cousins (when that happens)...but you , of course, already know that.


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
