So I was in my home town last month. It’s up in the beautiful pacific north west, and I try to take advantage of as much as I can while I’m there (we just don’t have trees like this in Florida). I asked my little sister if she wanted to go for a walk with me. We had quite a few uncharacteristically sunny days while I was up there. It was so beautiful, but the days were so short. It felt like the sun had just managed to get up into the sky and it was setting again. Regardless I was spoiled.

Here’s my little sister. She has an adventurous spirit and is about to embark on another one. When I look at these photos, especially the close ups I see my older brother. I’m not sure how I turned out so different (I always suspected I was adopted, but too many people tell me I look like my mom, and that I’m just like my dad). As we get older though, I find we have more and more in common.

Here’s Char ::

Yes, I even talked her into doing some jumping photos.

Starting Again
With a fresh look, and a new life! Well, not so much a new life, but a lot is changing at the moment. Firstly, we are no longer living in China.

It all feels a bit daunting. An unfamiliar place, wit ...

Southampton Children’s Photographer :: At The Circus
You may recognize these two little ones. We did a complete family shoot with them last year which you can see HERE.This set up was for Carter and Makenna's 2nd birthday. This is the sweetest photo session I've ever done. It was completely designed and thought up my Carter and Makenna's mom, Marissa. She had this idea in her head for a while and when she asked if I'd photograph it, I was so excited. It sounded like way too fun. I can only take credit for the photos. The set up and styling was done completely by Marissa. She made the signs, and the streaming bunting, she is incredibly creative. Makenna and Carter are 2 very lucky 2 year old ...

Change
 "Things change. And friends leave.  Life doesn't stop for anybody."  -Stephen ChboskyI'm doing it again.  I'm writing a sentimental blog about leaving a place I've come to know as 'home.'  My collection of "homes" is becoming more extensive, and not in the billionaire sort of way.  More in the homesick sort of way.  Places I've been where I've had a community, laughed, made lifelong friends, cooked meals, cried, and moulded my life into.  A place I am going to miss so much I will feel sick over it.  Florida is now one of those places that holds a little piece of my heart.  And it might be the hardest place to leave yet.I can ...
