While visiting family in Houston, TX this past week, I captured this portrait of young Justin. He is certainly a very energetic and intelligent young man. Those eyes are mesmerizing. When I thought about capturing this shot of Justin I wanted to creep in close and focus on the eyes. Child Portraits are fun and can relay great emotion.

My daughter enjoyed every minute at the beach. To my surprise she loved the waves and wasn’t afraid to play around in the water.
I can’t wait to take more pictures of the flowers from my Summer Flower Garden. Check out the petals on this flower. I love the way the yellow accents look almost like glitter sprinkled. The honey bees have been hanging around spreading the pollen.
My flower garden serves as my photography studio when I am in the mood to take nature shots. I certain appreciate the fact that I can just open the door and step outside instead of driving to some remote location to find great shots of flowers.
The things I love the most are…..
My wonderful husband and our amazing children. Laughing. Singing. Mugs with hot drinks. Historic buildings. Strawberries. Lunch or Dinner with Friends. Reading short novels and biographies. Parties. Running. Long hot baths. Flowers. Birds and Butterflies. Mystery movies. Dark Chocolate everything. DYI home renovations. Listening to talk radio. Long walks in the park and along the beach. Lavender. Cooking spicy foods. Playing in the snow. Painting my nails. Shopping for jewelry. Shoes. Dresses. Weddings. Family Vacations and Family Reunions. Baby Showers. The sweet smell of babies. Dressing up. Going to soccer and basketball games. Waterfalls. Gardening. Jazz music. Spring blossoms. Fall colors. And I absolutely love taking pictures of it all!
If you’d like to get in front of my camera to allow me to capture your special moment in time, shoot me an email. I’d be happy to hear from you firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every Spring no matter how much is going on in my world, I suffer from Spring Fever. It hits me like a mac truck. I try to fight it, but it always wins. So from now own, I vow to just submit and accept the fever. Instead of working in doors, I revamped and included a lot of outside work time including scheduling more “on locations” photography sessions in area parks, etc.. Every year around this time, I find myself creating unique opportunities to work outdoors and luckly photography is not confined to on particular setting. There are wonderful images all around us. We just need to take the time to observe..
This past weekend I went out to the US National White Water Center here in Charlotte, NC to watch the Canoe/ Kayak qualifiers and in between runs I went for a stroll with my family on the trail. I was surprised to see so many flowers on the blackberry bushes. i snapped an image of my neighborhood to compare the budding of the trees.
I plan to spend a lot of time enjoying the outdoors this year. Hopefully, I will discover new places to explore – and along the way capture some interesting photos. Here’s to a wonderful and beautiful Spring!
