While doing Harley’s senior session, I did a mini-session with Creed and his little brother Crow (Harley’s 2 little brothers). They are quite the opposite of one another. Creed is very bashful in front of the camera and Crow is quite outgoing and loves the camera.
I have to share the story of this last image on the page (the storyboard). Before we went to the train tracks to take the pics, I explained to the boys the “rules” of the train tracks. And of course being boys they were like, “Oh I am faster than that train. I can beat that train.” Well, sure enough, the train came along during the session so we had to clear the tracks. So these were the shots taken as the boys watched the train coming along.
First, calmly watching the train, but plugging their ears due to the loud noise.
Second, Creed decides to take off and run because the sound and vibration are so intense.
Third, little Crow takes off into a run to follow big brother.
It was quite hilarious to watch since they had “talked it up” so much. 🙂
I have had such a great response from the sale. Thanks to all of you for referring your friends too. Don’t forget, you can still book your session just in time for those fall and winter shots for Christmas cards and more!

After many long hours of editing and attending PRIDE this last weekend, I wandered off Monday & Tuesday of this last week to gather thoughts. My daughter and her bff have been wanting to go camping, so it worked out nicely. We were only an hour from home, but it seemed we were miles away. The girls swam, soaked up the sun, giggled and laughed. I sat on the shore writing in my journal or scoured the shore for interesting things to capture with my third eye (my camera).
However, it was not until the first morning we were there that I found what I really loved. I snuck out while the girls were fast asleep. I had not had much sleep the night before and so the golden light of morning was calling to me. As I came around a bend, I noticed these huge birds perched up atop this mangled old tree. I am still not sure if they were vultures or just big black crows. It was just an amazing site. They sat there basking in the morning light as I popped off a few shots.
Here is the final result (above)
And just for the heck of it, mindless musings from my journal.
Things that are making me happy at this very moment:
The scent of SPF 45 filling my nostrils
The crystal sunlight sparkling on the water
The sounds of children laughing carefree in the distance
The feel of the sand between my toes
The beautiful strong branches of the tree that is providing me with shade
The smile on my daughters face right now as she is riding the paddle boat
and last but not least
I am thankful for the gift that God has provided me with. This beautiful surrounding with 1,000 beautiful things to capture through my lens.
I hope all of you are having a blessed 4th of July. I am relaxing at home with my hubby as our daughter took off to spend the night w/ a friend. 🙂
I came across this poem and had to share it:
Oh God, as I bring my subject into focus and prepare to make each Portrait, never let me forget that I’m creating treasures for some family, a keepsake for loved ones…Make me sensitive to the qualities and virtues of others, that I may draw out into the light, the beautiful radiant belongings of their hearts….
Help me Oh Lord, to be an artist, collecting the beauty of every soul, the glow of youth, the wisdom of age, the gentleness, the laughter or tears of each life that is precious in thy sight…
Deeper than a means of livelihood, give me the perspective to see my photographer’s art as a service to others, making life richer and more memorable….
And, Dear Lord, between the lights and shadows, the ups and downs and the rolling years, keep me from getting out of focus or off center, so that my life and work may be framed with dignity and colored with contentment…
