Serve him

hase and I have a pretty good relationship -- people always joke about how we're perfect... and if something ever happened with us that the world must be ending... That fills my heart... and it also makes me laugh... It hasn't been 'easy' for us... and we're certainly not perfect... We've actually had a pretty rough road... Most people don't know this -- but our first...  View This Post >

Living RICHLY

"
I want Saturday morning cartoons and Sunday morning breakfast.... like fill up your entire dining room table - have to sit on the sofa... kind of breakfast. I want evening walks on Monday and endless popcorn and movies on Tuesday. I want a random trip to Walmart on Wednesday -- just to get ice cream and diapers. I want thirty minutes alone on Thursday to paint my nails or soak in a...  View This Post >

What we do

ometimes... and usually only because of something someone says... I struggle with my 'importance' in this life... as a "photographer"... and if you know anything about me -- you should know that my importance and my purpose.. are both extremely important to who I am... and how I live. As a photographer.... I totally get the value and importance of what I do... but sometimes I...  View This Post >

teve... 41 years young... and has Cerebral Palsy... But.. that's not who he is... Steve walked into Anytime Fitness and said he wanted to lift... so Manager/Trainer Chris put him on a tough training schedule....

A tendency

View This Post >
So I've always had a tendency to always think about the next day... or what I have to do next... It's pretty much a curse - honestly. I have trouble falling asleep at night because I'm constantly creating lists for my lists in my head. When I was younger, I had to keep a piece of paper by my bed, so that I could write out EVERYTHING I was thinking about.. and if I woke up in the...  View This Post >

hen did we get to this point of accepting the... "well you can just photoshop that out".... phrase!?!?! I am SO tired of hearing this at sessions and weddings... and I'm so tired of saying it myself.... You are beautiful... Your nose looks just fine..... Your waist does not need to be smaller..... Those flabby arms were perfect enough to hold your beautiful new...  View This Post >

or those of you who have been active blog readers -- you know that things have been a little slow on the "front line" over here at the blog and on facebook... Why is that... I've even gotten a few messages asking me if I'm shutting down my photography business... maybe because of the lack of blog posts or maybe because I "suddenly" decided to move out of my studio.... When...  View This Post >

She stalled out

I
came around the corner and saw the car sitting in the middle of the road.... I was in a hurry -- but still found myself being patient.. I'm usually not when I'm driving... I don't speed, but I don't like it when people don't go the speed limit... And I don't like it when people don't use their blinkers... Or cut me off... I have road impatience....a few notches below...  View This Post >

Going Full Time

View This Post >
I
think two of the most popular questions I get asked when I mentor another photographer is.... 'how do I go full time... and how much should I charge.' I answered the second one a couple of years ago, and I still stand behind my answer.. so go check that out if you have time It's scary... to want to pursue a dream.. especially when that dream means changing your life around in...  View This Post >

he watches me through the hanging toys and through the coffee table candles.. across the living room.. and she stares until I finally look up and smile at her.. She squeals in excitement and jumps up and down making all of the sounds on her toy go off. She reaches her tiny ten fingers up at me when I go to pick her up.. smiling with her entire heart. She smiles with her whole...  View This Post >
