Daniel is a magical child. He has a world of characters inside of him and they all come out when my camera does. I love to photograph Daniel because he is truly unique each and every time I do. Whether being the fearless leader of a neighborhood full of pirates or racing through a desert in his monster truck – his mind is always imagining a new adventure. It’s true what they say though, life does imitate art because just the other day I opened my front door to find him zooming down the hill in front of my house on a sled, full speed ahead. I’m pretty sure he was simply on his way to his first gold medal.

happy new year.

It’s been a long hiatus for me as I’ve had to take a break from posting temporarily to be with family and heal from a few surgeries. It is so wonderful to be back out in the world, photographing so many beautiful children, people, places and things. I’m looking forward to 2011 and all the possibilities that it holds. While i was away, my camera wasn’t completely asleep. I wanted to share a few of the images that are lovely reminders of 2010. Happy New Year. May you have health, happiness and peace.

Jackson is big brother to Lily. Jackson has thick, gorgeous hair. He has cheeks for days and eyelashes for miles. If you knew his mom, you’d know where Jackson gets his spirit from. He’s a treasured friend to his friends (and dare I say, my daughter’s first crush) and most definitely a magnetic soul. I often look at Jackson and think he’s smarter than all of us. He can be quiet at times, but only because he is observing the landscape around him – soaking it all in – preparing for his next move. He’ll be fighting fairytale dragons in his 90′s. As a firefighter, pirate, dream machine.

just like a white winged dove.

The other day, my dear friend Christine and I grabbed the kids and drove up to Lake Lanier, GA. We had no idea what we were in store for. It was 90 degrees, we had 3 children under 5 in the car and no towels, bathing suits or snacks. All we did have were a change of clothes. We were winging it for sure. We happened upon a little beach and the kids begged to be set free. Although we spend very few huddled days inside during the Georgia winters, this winter provided us a lot more than we were used to. Needless to say, they were excited to see sand and sun. We decided to throw caution to the wind and give them their ‘ocean’.
