Dana is next to Kim and Cory is on the far right in this photograph. These two women, Kim & Tanya, are pretty amazing people and these two little girls have grown into incredible young women themselves. Cory has an MBA and holds a very important job as an investment counselor taking care of just one very important client's portfolio for the company she works for. An extremely responsible job, to say the least. She is smart as a whip and a very beautiful young woman, too, like her mother and her Grandmother and her sisters, (and by the way, Aaron, Kim's Grandson and Dana and Cory and Cohen's brother, is a very handsome devil, too...They are all very very bright young people. Aaron is going to school to finish his MBA and Dana is a Doctor Of Pediatrics, about to go to Africa for six months to work with Pediatric AIDS patients. This is one of the smartest most beautiful family's it is my privelage to know and love. And they are also all really lovely caring human beings. Tanya and Henry have done a magnifent job as parents. Incidentally Cory (with her husband and new little offspring), just gave birth to a little girl at the end of April. I would love to get a picture of the four generations, now. But that may not be able to happen for some time, with Dana going to Africa and Cory and Cohen living in San Francisco, plus, Kim, who had been here in L.A. for the last nine months just returned to New York where her other home is...
I love this next picture. It is such fun and they are all having such a wonderful time here... Dana, Tanya, Kim, and Cory. Four beauty's! Kim was very very young when she had Tanya. I mean very young. In her early teens. So she has always said she feels they grew up together. She has also said she feels that Tanya is the most wonderful human being and that she had nothing to do with that...that Tanya just 'came in that way'. I love that. And, Tanya IS a wonderful human being...
What a magicla set of photos! And what beauriful women.....
You sure do get the best from your subjects :-)
Looking forward to seeing the 4 generations....
They are privileged to have you as their photographer. They look like beautiful people and you take beautiful photos.
Thanks for visiting my blog today
A wonderful set of pictures accompanied by a well written post.
Michele sent me here.
you are so blessed to have so many good friends...
all of your photos are really worthy of that book you mentioned some time ago.
Lovely pictures of beautiful human beings Naomi!
Here via Michele today
What a beautiful family! I remember seeing Kim (and Werner, of course) on TV. She and her daughter are really gorgeous looking people. It is nice to know they are as nice as they are pretty.
Michele sent me this morning.
Gorgeous photos of gorgeous women! (And Colonel Klink! You're the best, Naomi!)
PLEASE come visit me today....I need my blogfriends to crosspost something, if you would...
Michele sent me back, Naomi. I showed mr. kenju these photos and he remembers Kim also. You sure do have great photos.
They say the camera doesn't lie, but I think it takes an artist behind the lens to get to the truth. And you do it so well.
It is always special to come here. Michele sent me today.
It's a great series of pictures you're posting. Here via Michele; have a great weekend!
eautiful photo's and beautifully written. I really feel how important they are to you.
here from micheles today
Beautiful photos & a lovely read!
You have such a marvelous gift with black & white portraits. I love the profile shot because it shows the similarities between them and the differences. Beautiful pictures as always!
Terrific set of photos. :-)
What a great documentarian you are. I can't find any pictures of sober friends, myself.
Nice makeover on your site, too,
Here via Michele today.
I used to LOVE watching Hogan's Heroes.
You know such interesting people!
What lovely family photos.
Friends are indeed priceless.
I remember Kim Hamilton well; she was in just about every tv series I ever saw when I was young!
Every time I come here, I leave a little smarter, Old Lady.
Here from Michele's this trip, but I've already been here earlier today.
Another set of stunning photographs that you have bought to life with your narrative.
I could sit and listen to you for hours actually I plan on doing just that LOL
Poor MrWings haha.
Wouldn't you know it I visit on my own then Michele sent me straight over as well :)
BTW I watched Easter Parade yesterday. My four year old insisted on dancing. I had to be Fred HAHA.
You never cease to amaze us with your great posts Naomi! Lovely pictures of lovely people, and so is the picture taker!!
Hope you are having a wonderful Memorial weekend.
You always have the most interesting things in your blog. Thanks for sharing!
boy, you do seem to know a lot of gorgeous and strong women! beautiful post as usual, naomi. they sure are lucky to have you as a friend. :)
have a great memorial day weekend! :)
What great pictures. I hope you are able to get a 4 generation picture!! We got a really cool 4 generation picture with my Dad's Mom last summer!
And I am actually stopping by tonight via Grins... since she picked you as single of the week!! But I am usually here via Michele :)
Those are beautiful pictures!
Here via Michele!
back via Michele this time.
I love that first photograph, the little girls are absolutely adorable! :-)
Here from Michele this time.
Just a note and then I'm off to church. What a lovely family. I do so hope you can get the four generations together. I have a picture of myself as a baby with four on my dad's side and one with Nyssa and the four generations of ladies on mom's side. Such a treasure.
That is a very beautiful story and photos.
Wishing you a great week ahead.
Naomi! Thanks so much for your donation! Now come back to my blog, click on the Blog Explosion link in the sidebar, set up your account and I'll throw 100 credits your way!
I am giving 100 credits to anyone who donates to the greyhounds through me!
A beautiful family, surely. Thank you for sharing a piece of their stories.
One of the most incredible photographs I've seen included my cousins. They held their children on their laps sitting on the hearth of my Great-Aunt's fireplace. Behind them was a big picture now famous in our extended family -- their mothers holding them as infants on their laps. I loved that generations-mirroring-generations thing.
Over through Michele's today.
Wonderful pictures and a great story too! happy sunday!
Beautiful pictures!!!! And regarding to your question on my Queer Chef blog. I havent made cookies with chocolate chips yet but I will soon or mix it with the oatmeal ones!
Back again from Michele.
You popped in between and I wanted to have time to re-read this post anyway. These are great photos and great posts. I still think you should get them together and see if someone would publish them... I think you would be surprised at how well they would do and how cherished such a book would be to those pictured.
Kim has always been a stunning woman. Breathtakingly beautiful and you're so right about Tanya looking just like her. Lucky genes for her and she seems to have picked up her mom's grace as well.
Cheers to my well deserving Single of the Week, you!
Hello, Michele sent me!
Wonderful post, (such a great subject!), and GREAT pictures! You definitely have a great talent in photography!
I think I might have mentioned a photographer that took 'triptych' pictures on the West Side of Buffalo, NY. His work is pretty cool to browse through.
Have a look.
Here via Michele today.
I was on the phone with my dad, and I began telling him about you and your uniquely interesting blog.
I got online and read portions of some posts and read many names of your actor acquaintances.
We had such a fun time discussing you, your blog, and your interesting life.
You have had so many wonderful experiences, and it is so great that you share them with your blog buddies!
My dad will stop by and look through your archives I'm sure. I told him to be sure and leave a comment when he does.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend. I hope you are doing well.
hello - michele sent me - when are you coming to visit Big Bear lake?
I am a youngen and I have always dreamed to be looking back on my life and have as many adventures as you have had.
You are amazing!!
Found you through Grins!! Congrats on being single of the week :)
What great photos, and what a great story! Here via Michele as always.
Tremendous photos. One of the things you capture in them is what a wondeful and loving family they are. And Theater West sounds great. I spen a short time as a member of a co-op gallery and made some very good contacts and friends. I couldn't really afford the time or money to continue (I broke even after my first show and decided not to push my luck). Other groups I've worked with have come and gone. It would be nice to have a "Theater West"-like experience.
What a wonderful set of pictures, Naomi! Love your Mothers, Daughters & Grandmothers series. Great photos and great people!
Kim Hamilton have a beautiful family!
And thank you so much for your nice comment about the João-de-Barro home.
What a lovely series of photos! Such gentleness and love in their faces. I know what you mean about good friends, they are priceless. Here from Michele's.
What incredibly gorgeous women. Their bone structure is awesome. And you did a remarkable job of capturing both their beauty and the wonderful women they are. Well done, Naomi. I really enjoyed this post. (I'm playing catch-up, after being gone)
I'm back. :) Each time I see this entry and these photographs, I think of how much I wish I had someone with an eye for love and the importance of family legacy to photograph my mother, daughter and I. These women are lucky to have had your talents to capture a moment for them.
Back from Michele's.
The information here is great. I will invite my friends here.
