I have to own something, Y'all. These last several months have been the hardest for me since the first few months after the divorce. I know me - and I am a survivalist. I survive.

Every year in my life has a theme or a motto. 2016 was Demolish. My world was shattered and all that I knew to be safe and whole was destroyed. 2017 was Renew. I grew, I grieved, I started a blog.

Photographing families, proms, babies, graduations, engagement photos, etc. No, no and finally no. I take pictures because I love the process and that treasure hunt. I have zero desire to make anyone else happy but… Continue reading Don’t miss opportunity while you’re waiting for the next thing

I'm sitting on the deck of a beach house, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, having just woken from a nap and feeling really relaxed. It's Sister Weekend.… Continue reading Sister Weekend 2.0
Yesterday was another Sister Birding Adventure and Cheryl and I went to the Aransas Wildlife Refuge in Austwell, Texas.
