About Me

My photo
I believe that treasuring the people in our life not only helps the people in our life but helps US. It is so easy to get so caught up in the daily routine of life that we forget the best gifts are the people that live with us. I want to use my camera and vision to show you what you have in the connections to the people you love. It is the greatest treasure we have in this life. When a mom can see how her children listen to her and respond to her she knows her daily energy into her family is building people. When a man can see that the best life has to offer him is in his own house that is a beautiful thing. It is something I can do. I want to be a blessing and that is what heals me ! I love this job ! I truly believe families can be glued together with one really special photograph. It is such a cool thing to walk into a family feel the dynamics that are unique to their special relationships and translate that into a hard copy image. Sometimes we need to have a real image in our hand of what we hope with our heart is true. I want to do that for you ! I am a proud member of the professional photographers association 770.547.1018

security blankets....

I got a call in the middle of the night to come downstairs and unlock the back door because one of my college babies was there. I sleep with my phone in case they need me and I sleepily go down the stairs to see her outside the door and hope everything is ok. I ask her and she just says it was a hard day and she wanted to come home :) She climbs in my bed and after giving me a big hug , she falls asleep. A short time later my pregnant baby comes into my room because contractions woke her up. They are not amounting to anything, we think ,but they are uncomfortable and they seem less scary if you are with people who love you ..so she climbs into my bed on the otherside :) It has been years since my babies did this... As a momma of teeny kids you experience this kind of thing on a daily basis and when they grow up you assume they will not need you and you think hearing them breathe when they sleep is completely over... Well, I recieved a gift last night and into this morning. I found out that even as old as they are being near the people that love you the most still brings enough calm and peace that you can let go and just sleep. I am so thankful to still be on their list. As parents, we are guaranteed that we will mess up along the way. We are only human. We can only enjoy every stage as it comes because the next stage is coming and we can not do anything to slow down it's arrival. The only consistent is that we love them and enjoy them.... That is something that covers a multitude of sins... Just feeling thankful and thought I would share and encourage you to go enjoy your kids today. It is an investment that will bring peace and comfort to you forever :)
