Belle or Bruin

He was a funny, bearded Boston transplant and a huge Bruins fan.  She was the quietly cool, artistic type who knew the words to every Disney song and openly admitted Belle from Beauty and the Beast was who she identified with most.

Who knew that all it would take was a song for their lives to change and I’d be there to capture every magical moment.

Now this beautiful family is celebrating their future edition and you  can only wonder what their precious bundle will be!

Voyage To Joy

“To learn to play, seriously, is one of the great secrets of spiritual exploration.”~ Rachel Pollack

Children are natural explorers. They see things with fresh, uninhibited eyes that savor and revisit their experiences often.  Working with these little adventurers reminds me that even though I have lived a while, I am not always living.  As an adult, I often forget what it means to just be in the moment and especially, how to re-visit those moments of sheer joy.

The little ones I work with and others who are in my life, remind me that life is a quest, but not one which the final destination is most important.  This voyage is more about the steps, the inventing and reinventing yourself as you connect with others on similar paths.

So push yourself with open eyes.  Smile at the gifts around you and enjoy the view as you climb the mountains of life.

Family Is Important

Family means different things based on who you are.  In mixed groups, personal definitions could mean anything from direct blood relatives to those whom you’ve acquired unique, close bonds with.

For me, the both are true.  Growing up in a military home, I learned first hand that limiting “family” to just genetics doesn’t always work.  Sometimes you have to rely on those who’ve earned your trust by being committed to the mutual success of all involved.  They start off as friends, but gradually through motivational words and inspiring acts, prove to be much more.

Now as an adult serving families similar to my own, I see the struggle of families (especially military ones) even more clearly.  Remaining united and strong happens with constant communication, plans for visits, and (thanks to technology) video chatting.  So as you like that IG post, watch the latest Snap, or “react” to the last Facebook message, remember family is important no matter how you define it.

Spring is just around the corner and I’m ready for the smell of fresh grass after a warm rain, but  more than the vivid fragrance of blooming petals, I’m longing for the laughter of portrait sessions.

Yes, Spring is my favorite season, new things 10491075_10207477972961995_1954836115500218943_npushing forth from the ashes of those past.  It’s also a booming time for family and children’s portraits.

This year’s first Spring portraits are from a family that was a joy to meet.  Full of energy these amazing children floated around allowing me to capture some of the sweetest moments between mother and child as well as brother and sister.
