I am beyond lucky and very grateful that I am able to do what I Love.

Owning your own business is not for the faint of heart. It has been a long road these past 8yrs. Each year learning more and challenging myself to be a better business owner and artist.

In the past couple of months I’ve been working on my business and local photographer friendships. Both of these have entailed being face to face with another human being that holds me accountable for growth, both personally and professionally.

And for this I’m forever grateful.

First I got to hang out with my dear friend and amazing photographer Paola Moore of Sugarcane Company.

Then I had a Business in Bethlehem,PA weekend with my dear friend Melissa Surprise of Surprise Photography.

A weekend with great food, friendship and some hardcore business changes.

Melissa and I were lucky enough to meet up with another dear friend and fellow photographer Alyssa for dinner. It was such a wonderful final evening of good food and friendship!

Just last week I enjoyed a afternoon in the city with my good friend and fellow studio mate Caitlin. We visited The Rodin Exhibit, The Art Museum and enjoyed a little alfresco lounging at the Oval.

I am simply amazed each time I am allowed to capture such innocent sweet moments between a mother and child.

Giggles, smiles and sweet cuddles.

There is nothing like the bond between a parent and a child. In each others eyes they are perfect.

“By  the way – you seriously captured exactly what I wanted.  Not like I expected any different, of course.

…Every single day, i have these little moments throughout the day when i stop and look at him and just laugh at the crazy things he is attempting to do or just stop and think how lucky i am to be able to experience these moments with him – and you managed to capture all those moments with your talent!  Now, those moments will be a constant reminder on my walls. And for that, I am truly thankful.”

On July 4th we lost our beloved female schnauzer Cynda.

She had gone into renal failure and within a week was gone.

She had been my our wedding present to each other and was such a fun loving dog to be around.

Her passing broke our hearts.

So, in honor of her we would like to help our local Schnauzer rescue.

Each year we make at least one trip to our favorite beach in Delaware.

Rehoboth Beach holds a very special place in our hearts, not only is it where I vacationed as a child, but my hubby and I were married there 11yrs ago.

It is such a wonderful family friendly beach with FANTASTIC shopping!!!

All of these were captured with my Mamiya 645 on Kodka Portra 400.
