My Daughter, the Photographer

Betsy and I went to Buffalo earlier this month to visit my daughter, Kelly, and her husband, Chuck.  Although they both have full-time jobs, Kelly is trying to get established as a photographer.

I’m not prejudiced, of course, but I think she’s pretty good — even if she does use a Nikon.  She’s shot several concerts, and was sent to San Diego in August by a record label to shoot a concert out there.  Kelly has already had a couple of shows, and she will have a show in Nashville in November, at the time of the CMA (Country Music Association) awards.

Chuck is a supportive husband in these endeavors, and serves as her manager.  They also make a pretty good-looking couple.  (Again I’m not the least bit prejudiced).

    Kelly’s photography is magnificent, George. I especially enjoyed the “colors” category. I’m glad that you and Betsy enjoyed your visit with Kelly and Chuck.

    Nothing wrong with being proud of our kids, George, and I checked out Kelly’s site and she has some gorgeous captures! My favorites, of course, are the trees and the colors! Superb! And, of course, she’s talented! Check out her parents!! Wonderful photos and post for the day! Enjoy your day!

    You are definitely NOT prejudiced, George! I just checked out her work and she is FANTASTIC!!! The way the spotlight looks like the moon with a mike under it, the looks on the singer’s face, the cemetery photos, they are all wonderful. She thinks of interesting angles and close-ups, as weil, so she has an eye for art. What a wonderful variety she has on her website.
