This winter has been very much . . . . winter.
And, Even though I live in California, and outside the weather has been mostly sunny and mild, I have felt the frigid cold, seen the death of growing life, and wondered if the sun will ever shine again. But, only on the inside.
And, while the winter can be long and hard to walk through, I am blessed to see the spring coming again, both in the physical and in my heart! I am grateful that some of the things that happen in winter are the beginning of such great promise and purpose, and I am excited for the growth that comes because of it.
I know, metaphors all over the place, right!!!
This winter I have had some personal reasons to hibernate, contemplate, and re-evaluate. So, I am happy to say, I have found my heart again. as a human, and as an artist! The heart, the why, is clear again. And, I am excited to share it with you!
I believe that life should be joyful. All parts of it. And for me, it starts with family. Your life, your family's lives, and the joy that you share should be something that you will remember forever. This is what I hope to do - give you a way to remember your joyful life in whatever form that may be.
Whether it's rainboots on little feet, or mismatched socks with flowery skirts. Our lives are not posed. The best moments happen unannounced. Your kiddos won't always smile pretty, but they also won't always wrinkle their nose when they grin the way they do right now!!!
I want to capture the little bits and the big moments for you. I want to catch the funny faces, the little giggles, the stolen kisses on foreheads. My style is fun, quirky, unique, and, well . . . joyful, haha!
I'm excited to be streamlining some of my processes, to benefit you and me both! All session will now include a CD of all of the high-quality edited images. They are yours!! Take those precious moments and print them, post them, mail them, post them on your walls! Remind yourself that life is meant to be lived out loud!
I have also added 2 very special pieces to my photography family! Single parents and adoption days should be commemorated and treasured. I could go on and on and on about how I feel and am inspired and touched by single moms and dads who raise their littles without a partner, or how I am touched when a family opens up their hearts and homes to a precious one who didn't have one before!!! But, I wouldn't be able to see clearly through the tears and it would take you forever to read it all!! pass this on!
Spring is around the corner and I am blessed to be waking up to it!! love!
