I’ve been listening to “The Alison Show” podcasts, and goodness, this gal has so much contagious energy! She’s a riot. The podcast tour episodes are especially fun, filled with laughter and the sounds of a packed house of happy people ready to be uplifted.Read More
Kids are wonderful little people to photograph. They have their unique quirks, big emotions, and endless supply of energy.

Nothing makes a little one happier than realizing that someone is listening to them, and showing an interest in their little joys.Read More

I set a goal for this year to begin blogging consistently again. I just began this goal yesterday, so hooray for progress! Blogging on my photography website has been daunting for me in the past.

I’m thankful for the education I have discovered recently on the importance of blogging.
