photos as art..capturing the light of a family.


It’s wonderfully refreshing to find a family that values the art of photography. I was amazed that every wall, every table, every book-case of this family’s home was crammed with photos. Photos everywhere! Canvases and prints and framed collages are the art that surrounds this couple, and their children. Every room is filled with faces and times in their lives.  I know I’m a mushy person, but it touched me. What I wouldnt give for a family photo with my dad.

In each and every one of the photos are two shining stars, their children. Their photos of their children are Photos as art.. and their home is filled with the love that they share for these two small humans. You can feel it.

Life is funny.. you meet during college, and you find that you have so many things in common… a caregiver’s heart… the love of medicine.. the love of dogs…then years later you are busy busy busy. Time goes by really fast when you are working and raising a family…..  Growing a family is hard work!   These two have done it splendidly … because I know that no matter how busy both  this mom  and dad are, the focus of their love and their life is on their daughter and son.

The reward of this devotion  is something that money can never buy, two well-adjusted, sweet kiddos. Now that’s a treasure.

Life is busy and rushed…  things happen.. Life has a way of twisting and winding itself around us, and while we aren’t looking our parents get older, we get older, and our children grow up and leave us for their own lives.

Capturing and savoring each moment is so special, and if you’ve read any of my blog posts you know my passion about photography, and keeping your memories close at heart.  I enjoyed sharing these moments caught in these photos.. i always say.. i showed up and God pushed the shutter button…at exactly the right time.DSC_3593DSC_3599-Edit-2

It was a quick shoot.. and the wind was CRAZY!  but, I love that they chose their street where they have raised their children, and I love that the cherry blossoms stayed for a short while with their magic canopy.  Such a magical day. Enjoy the photos…
