    I would guess that you are more of a “Live it!” List kind of woman. You’ve already begun to think about making your mark; having impact that will long outlive you. At almost 62 (I also tend to think of myself as my next age!) I can assure you that this urgency will increase as you realize that much of life is outside of your control, but you have amazing opportunity with the things you can! Happy birthday, beautiful!ReplyCancel

    You still have a couple of years, but I can tell you that your 40s will be amazing. There is this wonderful freedom being 40 brings. You are doing great things that will have an even greater impact. : )ReplyCancel

Underwater Maternity Session

I purchased my underwater housing on a whim.  Underwater images have always captivated me and I wanted to try it.  The *problem* with trying underwater photography is that you need housing that fits your exact camera model and lenses.  Unfortunately, and unbeknownst to me until I started searching, underwater housing is no longer made specifically for…

The A. Family – Just as They Are.

As a family photographer, it’s always such an honor to have a family ask you to photograph them.  To know they will have those portraits for years to come, gracing holiday cards, as portraits on walls in their home to enjoy every day, sharing with friends and family, and one day making it into an…
