They didn’t have you where I come from Never knew the best was yet to come Life began when I saw your face And I hear your laugh like a serenade How long do you want to be loved Is forever enough, is forever enough How long do you want to be loved Is forever enough Cause I’m never, never giving you up I slip in bed when you’re asleep To hold you close and feel your breath on me… Read more »

Look at the stars, look how they shine for you, and everything that you do. Coldplay, Yellow I have been dying to do a shoot like this and was thrilled to collaborate with my crazy talented friend Stephanie Lemmon, to bring it to life.  My little Layla did such a wonderful job for us and was justly rewarded afterward with snacks and treats;)  I love doing concept/styled sessions because they allow my creative side to take the lead.  I keep… Read more »

With new years come new ideas, plans and expectations.  Back in January I plotted out many for myself but sometimes life has other plans.  After a much needed break where I spent lots of time curled up with good books, hanging with my family and well, not being very productive, I am ready to tackle those lists and feed my creative soul. First up is a long delayed post of a few images I took of my son when he… Read more »

There is nothing that makes me embrace an early morning like gorgeous morning light.  I have spent many mornings recently driving the mom taxi and enjoying those cool morning sunrises and decided to take advantage with a little impromptu photo session.  Now, I absolutely adore the warm glow of evening light but the cool blues of morning have captured my heart as well.

If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.                                                                       The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett

There is one pretty child in the world and every mother has it.  ~Chinese Proverb

This week we celebrated the birthday of my oldest child.  Nine years ago Tuesday my whole life changed.  My son was born and in that single complicated, life altering, heart wrenching, magical moment, I became a mom.  I will always be grateful that the good Lord thought me worthy to be the mother, teacher and guardian of these special little people.  It is the best thing that I ever did and will ever do. This week’s theme in my 52 on Friday group… Read more »

This week in my 52 on Friday’s group, the challenge was to photograph anything red, pink or a combination of the 2.  I had a few different ideas but this morning they all went out the window when baby girl donned her red pettiskirt.  Half naked babies, fluffy ruffled skirts, and morning light… what a beautiful way to start out this morning. By now I hope that you can embrace my penchant for the imperfect.  Grain, shadow, limb chops and blur… Read more »
