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.

Baby Karis [Baby + Family]

Don't you just love the name Karis? It means grace ~ elegance or beauty of form; moral strength and the freely given, unmerited favor and love of God.

A momma's love...

It is for such a short period that they curl up their soft and sweet little bodies to sleep on your chest. And oh you want to snuggle them like that forever.

Karis, may you walk in grace for all of your life.
