this is 50.

“I am flattered and absolutely LOVE your idea of encouraging and empowering women to embrace both their inner and outer beauty (which you capture fabulously !) at any age. We as women tend to think of ourselves last…through you I have the gift of “this moment in time” —I am celebrating turning 50.  Although I did shed a few tears on the actual day, I now look at these pics and can smile…the tears I shed now are tears of joy and gratitude to our God for giving me my heart, body and soul.  Thank you for capturing these moments. Thank you for allowing me to smile with my eyes and show my joy and the happiness of my soul.
I am humbled; seeing these pics brought me to my knees.

dogs have a way of finding the people who need them…

Happy almost end of February, ya’ll!  I don’t know what part of the country you find yourself reading this post but we’ve had it pretty brutal here in NJ.  ”Polar Vortex” and weekly snowstorms have become somewhat of the norm for us. Nothing has been more glorious than seeing our dead brown grass for the first time in what feels like MONTHS!  A bit of a reprieve this weekend with spring-like temps but alas….it’s snowing as I type this.  I will try not to complain since I know soon we’ll be all whining about how hot it is.

Last month I had the pleasure of photographing this perfect new little Havanese pup, Ollie.  um, seriously???

 

I kind of fell in love…after all, I have been petitioning for a dog for the last 15 years of marriage.   Turns out sweet Ollie has a brother who is available.  You can probably figure out the rest.  I went to meet him.  He licked my face and it was all over!  He was in my car headed home to surprise my kids!  Meet Presley…..

Sadly, this precious pooch was not the best fit for our busy family.  I returned him to the breeder after an exasperating 17 days.  I knew I was making the right decision but it broke my heart.  I felt like a big quitter, actually.  But this story DOES have a happy ending.  He has found his furever home with the sweetest, most loving family who happen to be clients of mine and live 2 miles down the road.  He’s been renamed, quite appropriately, Dash.

Dogs really do have a way of finding the people who need them.  I’m happy for them….and him:)

 

xox,
