Welcome to the Hawkes family website. Still being lazy with this site, but I have a few things wired in now. You can still search for the older baby and house pictures below. But now you can also scan our blogs where for awhile I was actually inspired enough to try and capture the girls creative stories.

I am doing a little keyword test to see if the sprinkling of some keywords on the home page magically changes the traffic flow. I will see what happens! Insert random keywords here: The Hawkes Family, Tom, Alia, Ellie, Shay, Devin, Madera, Hawkes Bay, Hawke, Tom Hawkes, boosey and hawkes, boosey & hawkes
PICTURES - recent/current:
Active and on-going microblog of our families mobile images and travels: The Hawkes tumblr mobile image stream

You can choose to search by event, person, or keyword (from drop down menus) and then click the search button to return the images from the database that you selected. Then you click on the thumbnails (mini view of the pictures) to see a full screen view of that photo.  Go picture hunting!

OUR HISTORY: Tom's Timeline
Ellie created, filmed, sound mixed, and edited while Shay and her friend Tyler were the actors.
Enjoy the haunting overlayed melodies of some horror and acoustic tracks that Ellie mixed for this movie. Survive through the somewhat tedious middle action loop to enjoy the SURPRISE ENDING (at least for 7-9 year olds).
Seriously though, I found the cable to connect the video camera, and Ellie and Tyler did all of the video editing, sound, title/credits on iMovie. Kids these days, I tell you.

OLDER (but awesome) LOADED VIDEO:
Alia's sister did a class project video and used Ellie as her lead acctress. The online video unfortunately does not have as good resolution as the DVD, but at least you still get to enjoy the soundtrack and cute scenes and story.
