Photography to me is catching a moment which is passing, and which is true.

Hanging with this Little Guy

Smiling newborn boy

I’m a big fan of newborns. They have the sweetest little cheeks and they are so tiny! This little guy is no exception. Apparently his pups think so, too. It was a beautiful day with his family. I love meeting new friends and learning more about the love that brings these little guys into the world. The families are what makes my job so great! Enjoy!

School Spirit from Vacaville

Late last week, I got a call from a friend. She realized after two photo sessions for her senior daughter, they had neglected school spirit. They called me in a pinch, just in time to send out graduation announcements. What happened was magical. Forget about the fact that is was 90 degrees outside and this lovely young lady powered through with a GREAT attitude! She is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside and I truly enjoyed our time together. Take a peek! [Read more…]

My First Camera

Circa April 24, 2011

It’s finally here! Words cannot express the level of nerdiness I am feeling for my new camera! I have been waiting so long to finally buy it that I came home skipping and squealing and wrapping my arms around hubby for the combined Mother’s day, anniversary, birthday present. I am the proud mommy of a Canon EOS Rebel T2i and we are going to have a glorious love affair over the years. I know it. [Read more…]

Fabulous in the Flower Fields

North Carolina offered some of the most amazing views along the eastern Carolina coast. Every spring, as part of a wild flower project, huge beds of flowers bloomed along the bridge leading to the small barrier island of Emerald Isle where we lived. While this wasn’t the first day I met the “mini Gins” that belong to my very dear friend, Gin, it was the first time I had a chance to spend time alone with them and their mom. It was the beginning of a beautiful friendship that I will cherish, always. That’s the best part about this job–the people you meet and the memories made. Enjoy!
