"Thank You"

Monday, November 24, 2008

I saw this wonderful shot by Jenna Nelson Photography and just HAD to share it! As a photographer, I "see" so many different shots. But once in a while, I not only "see" the shot, but have a strong "feeling" from the image. This was one of those shots for me. It is so simple, yet so beautifully powerful. An image and words, that I'm sure will have some kind of personal meaning for everyone! Thank you Jenna!!

This year, things are a bit different for many of us. We are tightening our belts a bit. We are changing some habits...

Now, it is especailly a time for Thanksgiving. When times get a little tough, is a good time to give thanks... thanks for what we have, for our abundance of love and family and friends. Expressions of gratitude always have a way of making things feel a little better. I am grateful for many things this year... for health and friends, for having a business and clients I love and enjoy, a roof over my head and many other blessings. Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday full of many blessings!

Something a Little Different!

I had to add another image from the October wedding reception! While I love photographing the primary moments and getting the family shots, these little moments are my favorite. I love the artistic, the different, the little unnoticed moments...
