When my husband saw this photo of us, he did not know about the bunny ears until he saw the photo in the frame. It is one of the few photos we have of us where we are both smiling without looking forced. It is rare for me to be in a photo with him. Thanks to my kiddo Jaline for taking this photo of us!
A little more about me....
I am married to a wonderful man who has put up with me for the last 28 years of marriage. We are the parents of two wonderful daughters who have flown the coop. They have been replaced by a rescue 1lb kittie who acts like a dog and definitely grew into his skin. I love how he helps me when I am on the computer.
For the past 14 years I have been a resident of New Hampshire. I love that New Hampshire has the mountains, beaches, foliage, and history. Living in New Hampshire also gives us access to Boston, New York City, and Quebec within a few hours driving time.
What I love: my family ~ napping ~ the smell of Sunday dinners cooking~ multi-tasking
They say a picture is worth a thousand words....
Happy Places: the beach, freshwater or saltwater, with my toes in the sand ~ flowers in an open field ~ snuggling under a blanket reading on a rainy day
Being on front of the camera is not my favorite place to be. I love being behind the camera and been since my first camera. The best part of taking photos for my clients are when I am taking photos of either them or their guests, and they are not aware I am even taking their photo. I have been known to get down on the dance floor on my back & have everyone circle around me or lay down on the ground for the unusual shots. Most recently I shot wedding photos in the pouring rain, with raindrops covering my glasses and my camera lens where I could not see anything and just hoped I was capturing photos of the nuptials and not the trees behind them.
When a photo I take touches someone in a way that they only need a single word to express their thought, I don't care about the other 999. I try to capture simple everyday photos that are in our lives but we are too busy to see them. I have always enjoyed taking photos at events and sharing the photos with everyone. When taking photos, I let the relaxed natural setting capture the image with spur-of-the-moment happenings.
Many people are self-conscious when their photograph is being taken, myself included. Being relaxed and having a great time will have better results than a formal pose. We are our own worse enemy when we look at photos of ourselves.
Favorite Sounds: my children laughing ~ my rescue cat purring ~ my husband sleeping next to me at night ~ performing my concert of 1 as I sing in the car
Hiring me to take your photos is not just having me come to you, snap a few photos, and calling it a day and never seeing me again until I deliver the photos to you. I show sneak peeks and also email a few photos to you. The photos I am taking of you are a memory of your special time. Whether it's a birthday party, your newborn baby, or the wedding of your dreams. - the photos I am taking are about you. I also try to promise not to sing, there is reason it is a concert of one person!
When we meet afterward and review your photos, I love to see the joy on your face when you are reliving the moments or see the candid shots you didn't know happened. To be part of your happiness not once, but twice is awesome!
What is better, than that? It is when I deliver the prints of your favorite photos you selected.
