My eyes have led me down a path I never thought I would take. Although holding on to memories has always been important to me, I haven’t dreamed of being a photographer my whole life. I have, however, dreamed of keeping my kids small and my vacations alive. I have wished to stop time, to hold on to the moment, to bottle up my kids cute faces or the silly things they wear. To some extent, photography allows me to do just that. It has opened my eyes to a previously undiscovered world. It has allowed me to see the world around me with a deeper appreciation. I am constantly aware of the extraordinary among the ordinary and the beauty in the mundane. I don't see pictures. I see stories ... with both my eyes and my heart. I am a wordless storyteller. Thanks for joining me here.

Sweet Baby [Olivia]

Oh, who doesn't love the soft skin or a newborn??? Or the way they scrunch up their little faces and curl all up in a ball....or those squeaky little noises they make every so often....or the way they snuggle right up into your chest and sleep.....After having two boys, a good friend of mine welcomed a little girl into the world and it was such a joy to capture some precious images of her.

So let me tell you how sweet her older boys are. While I was snapping a few shots, they were building this  out of dominoes...seriously.

Enjoy your sweet little one dear friend!
