It's all about FAMILY!

You've seen this sweet face before (the little redhead, not that gnarly-looking fella, lol! love ya, Larry...), but I didn't think you'd mind seeing just a little bit more of her!

This month I'm celebrating FAMILY, 'cuz that's what the Holidays means to me: a time to reconnect, reminisce and build new memories with those we love, those we grew up with and those we've chosen to hold close in our lives...This is my buddy Larry and his darling grand-daughter - I love her obvious delight in being with him and hugging him tight! (and Larry looks every inch the Proud Grandpa!) THIS is why I love to photograph families - it's such a privilege to be able to capture that bond, that loving connection in an image that people will cherish every time they look at it...

Wishing you all a Joyous Holiday Season surrounded by those you love!

Glamour Knows No Age

Here's proof that you're never too old for a little glamour! This is Ruth, who was the other half of a fun-filled Best Friends portrait session last week. When she arrived in her fur coat (it belonged to HER mother!), I knew immediately that I had to create this image of her, something reminiscent of old school Hollywood style...Ruth is 88 years young and filled with a contagious love for life - it was a privilege to get to know her!

Tween Beauty

In the midst of a portrait session filled with giggles and wiggles, this serene little smile made my day...
(have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE what I do?!)
