Happy Birthday Sweet Hannah and a Farwell

August 7, 2011

Some of you may remember Hannah from back in March when I had the opportunity to photograph her. She was the sweet little girl that was battling cancer. Her Aunts tell me she was a little fiesty one with so much spirit. In April she lost her battle and left this world. Definitly, not without leaving a mark. She has touched many lives including mine.  She recently had her 6th Birthday and her family and friends celebrated with pink balloons, pink cupcakes and a beautiful pink sky! Happy Birthday Hannah! May you be in peace and free from pain.

God looked around His garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered “Peace be thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

Oh so cute!!

May 19, 2011

Aren’t these two little kiddos SO CUTE?  I mean seriously!  If I didn’t already have children they would certainly make me want some!  This family really means the world to me.  I’ve known my friend “F” before we all had children and both her children have the same birthdays as me and my sisters. WHOA! How did that happen?  I know? Is that bizzare or what?  “K” was born on my birthday which I share with my twin sister.  “N” was born on my older sister’s birthday.  That must mean something to the stars right?  Anywho….I wanted to share a few of my favorite images from this family beach session.

I'm PUBLISHED!

April 27, 2011

This is really exciting news for me!  I was recently asked to participate in a book submission for a book called “Mamarazzi” by Stacy Wasmuth.  Not shortly after I agreed to parrticipate Stacy contacted me to tell me that her book was going to be published! Congrats to you Stacy! Her book is really put together nicely and has a lot of photos!  I am very honored to have an image in the same book as many well known rockstar photographers!  I’m also excited to say it’s a photo of my two kiddos!  So, not only did I get published but my two darlings are now in a book! How cool is that?  Thank you Stacy for asking! I am very honored!

If you are interested in getting a copy you can get it at your local Barnes and Noble or check it out here on Amazon.com! Here is the description of what’s inside: Now you can learn how to photograph children with the style, clarity, color, and beauty you see in professional photographs. This fun guide combines humor with solid know-how to show you how to compose shots, handle cameras from basic compacts to advanced dSLRs, take portraits or candids, create prints that impress, and even work with kids! Packed with beautiful examples and written in a down-to-earth style from one mom to another, this book will help mamarazzis everywhere take better photos.

And of course this wouldn’t be a blog post without a photo!
