A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.
-- Isadora James

I love shooting sisters. Maybe because I have three of my own, or maybe because you can capture moments remembered from your own childhood with a different cast of characters.

Thank you Cheryl for letting me capture this moment.

Balloons and pettiskirts and ants…oh my!

These girls are just precious! Full of personality and truly a joy to be around.

They were super good sports despite some pesky uninvited guests!

Thanks so much for sharing your afternoon with me.

A girl and her dog

"I could discern clearly, even at that early age, the essential difference between people who are kind to dogs and people who really love them."

Frances P. Cobbe, The Confessions of a Lost Dog

Thanks for all the fun this afternoon Miss H!

carried away

Oh my where do I start? I had such a hard time picking three images for the sneak peek I ended up making a collage – and even then I left off a couple of my favorites. Such a fun and loving family – thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your day with me.

Something so Strong

Love can make you weep
Can make you run for cover

Roots that spread so deep

Bring life to frozen ground

Could carry us away

Something so strong

Could carry us today

This dear sweet family indulged me for this shot as I explained that I have songs in my head for certain people.

Those lyrics from the Crowded House song _Something so Strong_ are what I have in my head for them.

I am so grateful to have met this family and to have been a very small part of their life. Just meeting them changed mine.

They really do have something that strong.Strong love, strong faith and a strong family.Truly special people.

This is little Mr. O and his mom and dad - even though you can't see them in this shot ;)

I'll be giving them a proper sneak peek in the next few days.

Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch... sneak peek

Meet some of the most of the adorable sisters in the area... Miss S and little Miss E.

When I was working on these images the song by The Temptations was in my head.

The first two peeks seemed to work with a black and white that is nice and sugary and well the other image is drenched in honey because these girls were sweet as honey and full of giggles. The last one? Well it's as colorful as their personalities!
