I fully expected to leave a different comment than the one I'm about to. This morning my girls and I packed up the car very early and headed in to DC for some mom and me time. So my usual routine of coffee and reading was postponed till wine and reading in the quiet of the house at night. When the email came through my iPhone and I saw today's subject, I wouldn't allow myself to read it. I wanted to kinda savor and dig into what you had written. Having just discovered this particular camp 2 weeks ago, it's been a daily topic of discussion in our household. I thought I'd bombard you with all sorts of questions that only a camper turned mom could answer to my satisfaction. Instead, I found myself misty eyed. The emotions came from an unexpected place. Thank you for always being honest and articulating that rare quality so beautifully.

I've been seriously slacking in my commitment to the blogosphere. A mountain of editing to tackle and summer with kids in full swing, blogging has had to wait. In addition, I've been working on a major face lift to this site. Hoping to launch soon! And since no post is... Continue reading

I'm seriuosly behind on the blogging. One reason, I'm the world's worst writer and procrastination is my middle name where writing is involved. The other reason being I'm currently burried in editing. Here's a glimpse why....WEDDINGS! May was a busy and exciting month for Katie and me. Gary & Brittni:... Continue reading

Home, tanned and relaxed from their family vacation in Disney, this very sweet family gave me the easiest family session I've ever had. Brandi and Ricky were adorable together.

I guess you could say politics is where I got my start in the real business of Photography. It's often a roller coaster ride; frustrating and thrilling all at once. However, It's always a treat to capture those moments when a constituent meets the one who grabbed their vote... or... Continue reading

What's a dad to do on a beautiful Saturday when he wants to get the kids outdoors, away from the electronic devices? Schedule a photoshoot! It was such a fun morning. We laughed and goofed off until my memory cards were full. I heard laughing behind me while photographing Ethan... Continue reading

In honor of Mother's Day, I thought it would be fun to do a give-a-way for single moms. A gift certificate for a complimentary one hour session with 10 digital images on cd. My mom was a young single mother with two kids. She is the most thoughtful and unselfish... Continue reading

I've had such a struggle finding the right look for my photography business. I'm a pretty "plain jane" kinda gal. I like neutrals. That worked fine for this blogsite, putting the focus on the pop of color from the photos...but my marketing pieces were just lacking a little pizazz. The... Continue reading

I can't believe Friday is already here. Where did all those days go? It's a blur for me. I spent some time with the crew at Halo's Haven Rescue working on a project for a sweet, sweet pony they recently rescued. I really do mean sweet. Her story is compelling... Continue reading

This morning I was doing some hard drive maintenance (25,000 + photos and that's in just one catalogue) and this photo jumped out at me. I had forgotten just how close I was to this little booger. Clearly not wanting to miss a photographic moment, I snapped away without thinking.... Continue reading

I agree! More stories about Clark. Specifically Clark and his buddy 3D taking their wives to tropical locations with endless Mai Tai's. ;)
