I have had the Pleasure

This year or season will be my 2nd full year of taking client's and I have had many return to me, including this family... My goal is to excel with every session and hope that after years to come I am taking photo's for many families...

This session we were very luck to have a beautiful day...

Beautifully Sunshiny, Yellow...

I just have to say how very grateful I am to everyone who supports my passion... I am sure most of you know that I work at Starbucks part time and have done so since I went back to work after my son Oliver 4 years ago... well I have been busy with photos and have had many new clients but have had many return form from last year... I have made the decision to work even less at Starbucks and focus more on my boys and photos.. I am over overwhelmed because the photos are not a guarantee but I must leap and do this and hope that you all come to me again and again and you tell your friends and that I keep doing a great job, that leaves you smiling and thinking (wow, thats my family and love that photo of us)... Thank you Thank you.. and I cant wait to meet you all....

We knew he was there....

How do you live your life when you lose someone you love? This is how... This is one of my very best friends and proud to say it. She lost her son 4 years ago at the age of 7, he had a congenital heart condition from birth and had a stroke while waiting for a heart...

I have silently learned many lessons from Evan passing and my friend living...and still being a awesome Mommy and a role model... and my friend.. its funny because I will call her crying about something and then it hits me...I really should not cry about something that I wont even think about the next week...

When you lose someone, do you really want family photo's? Probably not, your whole family is not there, but your alive and should be making new memories and remembering the old...

It was a ridiculously windy day and I was talking to Evan all day trying to convince him to stop it, so he was with us from the start...We knew we wanted to include him but how? It was wonderful to see all of Shauna's children with her on this Friday evening and to me the key is to always remember and we did.. but we also used a photo of him so we could see it visually as well as emotionally... wow, it sure was great to look at them all at the same time and laugh and compare features.

Evan would have been 11 ( he is 5 in this photo) Marcus is 6, and Chloe is 2.. This is why I love what I do and I feel I got all the emotion of the evening and sure am glad it was for my friend... makes it even better... I love you very much and hope you enjoy your new complete family portrait...
