Mother Nature on Mother’s Day

Mother Nature on Mother’s Day! I am sharing a couple of photos I took of flowers called Bleeding Hearts that are blooming in my garden this week.  Amazing how they look like hearts ‘opening’ rather than bleeding. Mother nature is amazing how created a flower like this – mother nature reminds us to open our hearts.  These flowers represent the feeling I have in my heart today, Mother’s Day. I lost my mom to dementia quite a few years ago.  However, I had a mother in law who eased the pain of that loss until she died of old age a few years back.  My life as a mother has been guided by these two extraordinary women.  So, what can we all learn from mother nature on mother’s day?  Let your heart open.  My heart opens whenever I think about them.  Enjoy your day fellow Mothers!

Mother’s & Father’s Day Portraits

  Mother’s & Father’s Day Portraits It is that wonderful time of year again when Mother’s & Father’s Day bring families together.  I know it is not always possible – my kids are older now and have their own lives which makes it harder for us to celebrate together sometimes. If this is the case for you, I offer a way to give a gift you can send to your parents – a Gift Certificate for a Portrait Session that will reflect your relationship and love.  You can plan it together and do it at a time right for you.  The Gift of a Mother’s & Father’s Day Portrait session will be treasured for many years to come. It does take planning but, I never had a family that regretted doing it.  I will make the process as easy as I can for you. I offer gift certificates that I honor all year long – please Contact me today.  

Spring Flowers!

Spring flowers are finally blooming in NE Connecticut.  The sun is shining today, even though the temperature is still pretty cold.  This is a rare free Saturday for me and I just wanted to post a photo of these ‘Happy Daffies’ in my front yard before I go out and enjoy the sunshine.  Daffodils are my favorite spring flowering bulbs – such variety and so upbeat I can’t help but smile when I see them.  What is your favorite spring flower?  Leave a comment below 🙂   Quick tip for my fellow gardeners – I now order my seeds exclusively from  Johnny’s Seeds – great variety, organic choices and always get great results from them.  I just got my packet of seeds (quick shipping, too!) and hope to get the cool weather crops planted this weekend.  Bok Choi, snap peas, lettuce to name a few.  Enjoy your day and thank you for visiting my blog.  Please leave a comment so I know you were here.

Photographing Pretty Details – That’s why I am a Wedding Photographer!

I love photographing pretty details at a wedding, the rings, shoes, jewelry.  It is part of my job as a wedding photographer to do this and do it well.  My clients put a lot of time and thought into the details.   So on these cold snowy winter days, I find time to practice these things.  This is the wedding photographers time to regroup and plan for the coming season.
