Family Photos

Ok, let’s be honest.  How many of us really like the family photo experience?  It’s almost comical when I arrive for a family photo shoot.  Without fail, at least one of the kids is upset and the parents are stressed.  I put on my smile and begin to capture “beautiful moments.” Ha!  And you know what?  My own kids pull the same thing on me when I’m trying to take a photo of them.  If you asked my husband and boys what hell is like, they would definitely say: a family photo shoot that goes on for eternity.  I, for one, enjoy photographing other families, but taking photos of my own family is another story… especially when I have to set up the shot behind the camera, set the camera timer and then run to my position in the shot!  ARRGGHH!!!  I wish I had a video camera recording us during these “precious” moments of family time.   Read More »

The Art of Intimacy

Do you practice meditation?  If you don’t, I highly recommend it!  Meditation clears out the clutter in your mind and helps you focus on the present (the here and now).  That being said I believe intimacy can be the perfect medium to practice meditation. Read More »
