Fran and Nancy

The Brown Bag Group was back at Starbucks.


Fran's parents were both Italian immigrants.  She grew up in Hell's Kitchen, where her father had a bakery.  Fran worked for a while as a bilingual secretary.  She went on to college and became a teacher.  Fran ended up as the director of her school system's gifted and talented program.
Fran and her husband have four children and eight grandchildren.  
They have lived in Naples for 23 years.


Nancy is from the Massachusetts Berkshires.  She went to school in Boston, got married, and followed her husband to New York, the Midwest and eventually Hong King and Tokyo.
Along the way they had six children.  Nancy went back to school at Rutgers and UConn
and finished a masters in counseling at the College of St. Joseph in West Hartford,
just a few blocks from my Connecticut house.

What beautiful portraits, Jack. I can tell that you have put these women at ease capturing the twinkle in their eyes. I think that you can really call yourself a portrait photographer. Bravo!

Beauty and getting older are not opposite poles.
