Oh Deer!

We live in an area where there are lots of deer.  They usually move around together.  It is not uncommon for the deer to be in our front yard, taking naps in our back yard, or crossing the street.  Today this beauty was alone and spent a lot of time in our front and side yard.  This deer had darker coloring than normal and was very shiny.  So beautiful.  So happy they like our yard.

Capturing the Joy

This beautiful photo came across my Facebook Memories this morning.  It was my son’s final Field Day in Elementary School last year.  This perfectly captures the JOY and happiness on his face as he was running under a parachute that his classmates were holding up.

I’m so thankful to have these memories, especially today on Mother’s Day.  This is one of my favorites shots of my son that will always hold a special place in my heart.

That face.  That smile.

I’m so thankful to be his MOM.

The Forgotten Gem

I was scrolling through some pictures on my computer that I took back during our Fall season.  I hadn’t taken many pictures that day so I don’t think I every paid much attention to the folder that had been sitting there. Knowing us we were probably headed to the Braves Game right after this game.  Anyway, I found this pic and was very happy with it.  Very little editing needed to be done.  This pic was taken in late afternoon, it was hot (it was September) and this captures my son perfectly doing what he loves best.

Beach Trip 2016

Coming off of a VERY busy fall, we were able to take a trip to Seagrove Beach, FL during the week of Thanksgiving.  It was cold, but so beautiful on the beach…especially in the mornings.  I loved the coloring of the water and the sky while enjoying the cold air.  It was so refreshing and relaxing.  The seagulls loved to hang out and were comfortable being close to me.  It was a really nice getaway.

It was here that I decided to turn my photography hobby into a business.  I am very excited since I’ve already been doing baseball photography for several years.  Please check out the About Me page for more info and check out my portfolio of beach and sports photos.

Hope you enjoy!
