Babies Love Roses/ Columbus Ohio Baby Photographer

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Whetstone Park of Roses in Clintonville, was the perfect place for Monday's portrait session. The roses were at their peak and the fragrance was heady! It was like heaven on earth! And I was delighted to meet Baby J for the first time! The last time I "saw" her I was doing maternity shots with her mom! We had such a fun day at the "rose farm" playing with rose petals and dinosaurs!

1.the state or period of being a child.

The dictionary doesn't quite convey the word or period of being a child! Childhood to me means magical, in the moment, trusting, laughing, being free, hopeful, without guile, innocent, fleeting.

I love photographing children being themselves, playing, laughing and being in the moment... because those moments are so precious and once in a lifetime! I had a wonderful day of play, and being in the moment with H & C at Inniswood Metropark. I love what I do - & I love being able to keep these moments forever... to be visited again & again!

There are lives I can imagine without children but none of them have the same laughter & noise. ~ Story People

The Gulf Coast Disaster

Monday, June 7, 2010

Images of tar balls on beaches and oil covered birds and wildlife are streaming across our TV screens, computer screens and iPhones. The lives of animals & oil rig workers, & the livelihoods of Gulf Coast residents are being lost. I feel helpless.

A shop on Etsy, Help the Gulf Coast, has been formed uniting Etsy sellers to bring help to the Gulf Coast. Proceeds from sales from this special shop will be split 50/50 between Oxfam America & American Bird Conservancy . This is a great opportunity to purchase art by independent (indie) artists and at the same time have your purchase help OUR Gulf Coast in this disaster. We can do little things to make a difference! Please visit this shop. If you are an artist, please consider making a donation to this shop. I have donated the above image to this cause and will be donating more art in the future.
