So many things going on in my world, so little time to write about it (or so it seems)! The hot summer whizzed by and was full of a surgery recovery, a vacation without kids, and a trip with kids (notice I did not say vacation?). The fall has been full of sessions and my outdoor shooting season is concluding tomorrow. Just think…it is 45 degrees right now and three weeks ago it was 80!

Last week, I headed indoors to the studio to capture smiles and laughs of some very awesome kids. Being a photographer is more than just clicking a button. Yes, that is part of what we do. We travel, we talk, we tell jokes, we sit down and listen. We’re present in people’s worlds. And we can make a difference.

My sessions last week were part of a calendar fundraiser that is for Communication Innovations. I don’t want to give too much away yet – the images are being processed and the very awesome calendar is being designed for an early December launch. Can’t wait to share it!

never too old for bubbles

Finally. I am back from medical leave (had surgery, no worries, all is ok) and easing back into work at the studio. I would lying if I said the recovery was easy, but everyday is getting better and I am now in my second full week back to work. Of course, the piles of personal images that I meant to work on during recovery didn’t get the attention they expected. But that’s another story…

The story that these images tell is one that is far more fun! Bubbles are so much fun to play with, whether your 2 years old or 6 years old or even 36 years old (talking about me here!). I did a quick search to read more about them and was amazed to find an entire website dedicated to bubbles! According to The Bubblesphere, the largest bubble made is 50 feet long! My studio isn’t big enough for that, but we still had a good time. The pure joy that bubbles bring out make my camera very happy!

water fun

During my last post still had snow on the ground and we were all hoping for a timely spring. Well, we all know that didn’t happen and we needed to wait until May (what?!). But, finally, we are here!

The sun is out and warm and my spring sessions are in full swing. Siblings and families are my favorite thing to photograph and I just love this image that I created last week at Governor Nelson State Park. My favorite part? Her little hand grabbing her big brother’s shirt. The sweet innocence and natural connection that siblings share is so remarkable.
