    hey! jo ann

you've certainly done justice to your subject. I like what he's wearing. Great lighting. Besides, I liked some pictures in your gallery. The Ringbearer and Sylvia's potrait stand out.

I'm assuming the last image was taken right after he learned what you were charging. Great shots, Jo Ann.

This is awesome! I feel so honored that my joyful work with Dexter was given this honor. Of course, I realize that most of the honor goes to the little guy:) He'll be able to show this to his grandchildren and have a story to tell.
Thanks everybody for your kind words and support. I'm truly excited about it.
