The freshness of childhood

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This photo represents something else I love to do – I have a gallery on my website called bits & pieces. It’s where I put my head – or rather things that are in my heart… just little bits and pieces from sessions or my own personal work.

I am working on getting them ready for purchase on my own site rather than where I had been selling them previously making it easier for everyone all the way around.

I hope you will enjoy looking through that gallery and I will be adding more soon – I have a lot of images in my head – and on my hard drive!

The dreams will come to you

It’s not about how to achieve your dreams. It’s about how to lead your life. If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you. ~Randy Pausch

time travel

Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Just another quick snap from the beach - this image begged to older than it was so I complied.

I hope you are all enjoying your summer! Sessions are booking up (even scheduled a Christmas card session the other day!) Be sure to call early for the date you need.

A day late

I just wanted to take the time to acknowledge a bittersweet birthday a day late - and for that I apologize.

I should have posted this and called her momma yesterday but I did not have a chance – and I hope you will forgive me for that and know that Tessa Grace and her family was on my mind.

My sister found these shoes at a thrift store for me the other day and sweet Tessa was the one I thought of when I saw them. Happy Birthday sweet girl you are missed and this picture is for you!

Tessa Grace is the daughter of a dear friend that was born still – she would have been 5 yesterday. She, and another friends daughter are the reason I volunteer for NILMDTS, which has changed me profoundly.

I hope you will all consider supporting this wonderful charity in any way your family can.

cutie pie

I had to call this sweet little boy a cutie pie because he just is

Thank you so much for sharing that very hot Saturday with me - I am so glad it did not rain us out again.

This is just a little sneak peek to tide you over, we got some sweet sweet shots of your precious boy and I can't wait to be able to share your gallery with you as soon as it's ready.

Thanks again for all the fun!

I am not a writer, I am a photographer so my pictures speak for me. I have a hard time coming up with words, I hope my photographs speak for me.

Friendship has been on my mind so I thought I would share this one that I shot last week when two little girls joined hands. Simple. Just like that.

Follow you Follow me

I just returned from a trip - had a blast doing lots of fun work and thoroughly enjoyed my time at the beach in Gulf Shores where I captured these adorable boys and many other images I will be posting soon!

I will be busy processing them over the next several weeks & am looking forward to my upcoming sessions.

On a personal note - a family near & very dear to me could use some prayers and positive thoughts.
