Meet the Giving Giveaway Winner:  Alex, and her darling family.  Read their story here.  I met up with them a few days before Christmas for an in-home session.  I love in-home sessions.  Kids are at ease at home, and overall there is a very comfortable feeling.  This is a very sweet little family.  The daughter was a total mama’s girl and the son was so chill hanging out with dad.  Donnie joked about being the only guy at the treatment center with a beard.  A day or two later they left for California again for more treatments. 

























I recently came across this story about a photographer and her client learning she had cancer.  Some people make resolutions or set goals at the New Year.  Now is a good time to reflect upon your life and see if you are really living the way you want to.  Are you accomplishing the things you really want to?  Do the people who mean a lot to you know how important they are to you?

As one friend recently quoted  Ellen Goodman, “We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched.  Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.”

I wish you all well as you embark on another year, another chapter of your lives.  And don’t forget! Take pictures!
