November 19, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

I just love watching these 2 grow up. Especially Mr. Miracle boy who JUST had heart surgery and should have been taking it easy, but was nothing but. Smile. What do you expect with a 3rd grader? Dad is away this year, so Mom and kids met with me on a chilly morning. Nevertheless, they shine warmth. Thank you, D Family for trusting me with you...

meeting her vision

October 28, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Each senior is unique, and so is our time together. I strive to pray and research and then we continue to dialogue about the best way to capture his/her vision. This senior was so much that. What is important to her? 2 puppies-at-heart BIG dogs--who, by the way, don't understand sit and smile for the camera. But they did a good job smiling, I think...

large family in sections

October 18, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Love these little sweeties who weren't quite sure what they thought of me... They are the youngest three of a family of 11. It is no small feat getting everyone out the door AND looking good. We large family moms get it. So. In the interest of all the things, we decided to meet these 3 first, and then catch up with all the big kids later......

(It was impounded.) (Because I missed the "parking only for taxi's" (in Portugu...
