Its been a while.  There’s good reason. My dad passed on 12/28.  It was sudden and mostly unexpected.  Needless to say, my work is intricately tied to my heart.  Thus its been a slow start to 2015.

But families like this one bring healing.  New life. Abundance of love.  Hope. Promise.

Life is so short and sweet. I’m beyond blessed to do what I love and glad to be back.  I missed this creative outlet.  My dad loved photography, too.  Quiet the photographer himself, actually.  Having this career makes me feel closer to him.  To see the beauty in life.  The beauty in love.  The beauty in the new, the passing, and the in between.

Hope you enjoy these images.  What a little love.  And his big sister, well, I could’ve just brought her home! : )

The MOST wonderful time of the year. : ))  Hope you had a restful weekend…I am still full from Thanksgiving. : )  I’ve known this family for a long time…so blessed to call them clients and friends.  Its so fun to watch their kids grow…hard to believe Gemma is getting so big!  This time they included Kevin’s family…his sister was in from out of town.  They did an AMAZING job of styling this shoot…they always do.  They even got some sunshine!

Hope your Christmas festivities are beginning.  We start our advent calendars and countdowns today.  Our decorations are up.  Tree is trimmed.  I’m excited. : ))  There is so much to be thankful for…so much to celebrate.  Like all these little blessings in our lives….aren’t their kids the cutest!?
