oh my, look at those eyes... isn't she precious?

so cute... so chill...

i had a session with her human family a couple weekends back... beautiful people.. inside and out. really connected and pure love.

i can't express accurately how much i love doing what i do.. but here, i will try..

being a photographer allows me the great honor of meeting fantastic people... the bonus is:: i get paid to watch them.. to study their interactions with those they love most.. so many times i am crying behind the lens..


it brings me so much joy to watch love in action. to witness the tender and revering embrace of a couple.. to watch the touch of a mother filled with unconditional love for her children... to watch the joy, hope and sweet surrendering in a pregnant mama's eyes when i ask her to tell me about her baby...

so often, i am blown away with the unreal feeling that comes along with being invited to document these tender and joy-filled moments!

i am so fortunate... i know this.

and i am truly honored.

wishing you a good and relaxing night lovelies...

first trip up the mountain since the snowfall.. sophie's first time seeing and feeling snow..

mary and i held grand ideas..

snowmen, igloo, snowball fight...

ha! we lasted only 15 minutes before mary (and me) needed to warm up... sophie, on the other hand, seem perfectly happy playing in the icy snow...

oh man, are we desert girls... cold in 60 degree temps!

my michigan heart is embarrassed!
