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
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...

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 >

few years ago I decided that I wanted a second shooter who was 'Sharon Elizabeth's' second shooter -- I didn't want to continue searching for available photographers.. I wanted to give my bride + grooms a 'name'... and I wanted them to know who to expect and know exactly who was going to be shooting their day!

At the end of 2012 - I finally found the perfect location for a Studio space... outside of the home.... and moved in at the beginning of 2013.... Three dreams I never knew I had... and...  View This Post >

y goal was to return to work in May... and I'm not sure at what point - I thought that over-booking myself in March and April was a smart decision.. but somehow it happened... I was talking to Chase about it last night -- expressing how... even though I have a job that I LOVE.. I totally understand how new moms never want to work again.
