Little Nicholas

This week I got to meet with one of my former students, Claudia Mundlos and her husband Jose to meet their newborn son, Nicholas. Nicholas arrived three weeks early weighing less than 5 1/2 lbs. He was still such a cute little peanut when I met him at 10 days old. This little guy definitely […]

Gabi - Two days after my little nephew was born I already had to go back to Germany, and of course I missed my sister, Jose and the cute little smurf already in the airplain. Your pictures are more than photography, they carry feelings, they carry love. I admire your work, it makes me happy every time I watch the pictures and it makes me forget for a little while that I miss them so much…

Spina Bifida awareness, a free photo session & a photography update!

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill With  just over 36 days until the baby is due to arrive, I thought it was perfect timing to do something good. I don’t think words can really truly describe how scared, nervous, and overwhelmed […]

Caroline Gallagher - Almost three years ago i was where you are now…. Relax & cherish every moment. It is a difficult and heartbreaking road for now but when you hold your baby in your arms you will become a bigger stronger person than you ever thought you could be. You will gain a perspective on the only important things in life from there on in. Best wishes from county donegal, ireland

32 weeks…

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” -Socrates We went in for another ultrasound at just over 32 weeks and overall things are continuing to progress well. The baby had a heart rate of 128 beats per minute and is estimated to weight 3 pounds 15 ounces. That’s about a pound and […]

How 365 has changed my life

“A moment lasts all of a second, but the memory lives on forever.” ~Unknown I think most people that know me know I’m just a tad bit obsessed with taking photos…and have been for many years. Though I only began pursuing photography seriously in the last three years, I’ve always found photography an outlet to […]

Nichole Shortridge - Thank you so much for sharing. I am doing my 365 project this year for the 1st time and I loved reading this and thank you for the tips. I have posted 2 of my photos frommy 365 project on my webpage lmk what you think of them :)

Joanna London Tucker - Thanks for this blog and all the tips you provide! I originally planned on doing 365 this year as a way to improve my skills, but due to a crazy work schedule, I scaled back to a “Photo of the Week” goal. This year I vowed to carry my camera everyday, as last year I experienced so many moments of missed opportunities. I am happy to hear that I am not the only one that carries a camera on a daily basis- I don’t feel so odd now. LOL. Look forward to reading more of your blog this year!

Erica Carrero - Love this blog post! I tried my luck at a project 52 in 2008. My goal was to bring my camera everywhere but if a moment came around and I didn’t have my Canon, my cell phone camera would work just fine. In my facebook I have the first few weeks of it before life distracted me and I stopped.. Im feeling inspired to start it up again! Thanks!
