Snow, Ice, and Film. Oh My.

I’ve started my second month of shooting a 365 on film, and I’m very happy about it still. It’s such a slow and steady process that film, and one that I think is teaching me more about lessons in patience. I know this will be a never ending one for me. With that patience is…

Lots to share.

Embracing the Imperfect.

  “Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it.” ― Salvador Dalí I’m so super in love with that quote. As hard as we may try, Perfection is unattainable. We can give it up. As I took this photo of Phoenix at breakfast this morning, I thought ” And it’s because of her …

SHINE

January 2, 2014   “Shine with all you have. When someone tries to blow you out, just take their oxygen and burn brighter. ” — Katelyn S. Iron   For the last two weeks I’ve been trying to decide what I wanted my 2014 word to be. I had a lot of thoughts, a lot…

Honor in 2013.

So last year  I began a word project at the beginning of the year- It was the catalyst for the this blog- I decided to start this project, inspired by others who had chosen their words- I thought long and hard and decided on the word BE. I was really feeling the pull at the…

Savoring the sweet little moments.

I don’t know if it’s the fresh warm air, all the sunshine,  or the extra hour of beautiful light……but I feel happy. I feel like singing out loud, spinning till I”m dizzy, and jumping till my legs won’t let me anymore. I feel grateful for the little gifts I get to receive on a daily…

Happy Friday. We made it!!

Sometimes  I think oh how I just need to get through this week!! My schedule varies, and many times  I find myself working through most weekends, however, I think Friday just represents something – A relaxed state of mind. It’s a beautiful thing. Hope this dreary Friday has you feeling okay, I’ve had to hit…

The big Philly Flickr Meet up.

My family and I had a great time this weekend in the city, at the big Philly Flickr meet up. 60+ photographers met to make friends, swap stories, and shoot it out of course. It was cool to be surrounded by folks who all had the same passion- all ages, all walks of life, all…

The $7 dollar bath bomb and why It’s Ok.

Here in my hands I hold a bath bomb from Lush.  It’s called the Phoenix Rising, and it smells of cinnamon, and spices and other delicious lovely things. It costs 6.95 and tonight after I put my kids in bed I will have a soak. A loooooong soak….and I will not regret it for a…

Do what you love. Love what you do.

Are you doing what you love, even it’s only for a few short minutes every day? Per week? Per month? I know what makes me happy. That’s when I have my camera in my hands. The feel of it, the weight of it , it’s cathartic for me. I don’t even have to snap a…

This Tuesday I’m Grateful for.

The stack on my desk is high. Bills. Work. Applications for various things. I need a shower. My child is calling my name. Phone is ringing. Feeling rather busy at the moment. However. I am grateful for this busy. I am grateful for my clients. I’m busier this year this month than last year this…
