lists…

we all have ’em.  we all think about them.  we all use them to navigate the chaos that is life.  some of us avoid them and some of us live by them.  i am kind of in the middle to be honest.  i think about them… a lot.  and jot them down in notebooks scattered around my desk.  they do motivate me and sometimes they even inspire me.  ok, more often than not they inspire me.  particularly when it comes to photography.

do you have a list of images you’d like to have to highlight your life…or the lives of your kids or pets?  what kind of moments do you want to have when you a reflecting on the passage of time and all of the changes life has in store for us all?  i think a lot about these lists.  and as an artist, a mom, and a cancer survivor i do a lot of reflecting.  and i am so grateful to have all of the images that i do to cherish.  to me, photography serves as a way to live life twice…once in the moment and then again in reflection.  i’ve kept on these lists and am so proud of the wealth of memories i have to comfort me when i feel life is slipping by too quickly…

the best camera you have is the one with you.  i am so glad i’ve always had my camera handy to capture these stories of our life.  and when i wasn’t able to personally capture them..i’m glad i had invested in a professional photographer to document for me.  my motto is, experiences over things, and photos to enhance and forever preserve memories.  life is a series of lists…but this one will last well beyond our own lives…

here are just a few of the moments captured that were on my list…

the way i see the world and the moments in our lives…

memories shouldn’t be fuzzy…

 

simple days like a trip to the grocery store after an event at school…

…at an old-fashioned barber shop

 

 

or getting haircuts…

trying watermelon for the first time…

celebrating potty training…

 

or a moment of youth forever frozen…skateboarding on a warm summer day…

 

first time sand boarding and a glimpse of the teenager to be…

 

 

finger painting….

sports moments…

 

out-of-character halloween costumes…

everyday hikes and family vacations…

this image was captured totally without prompting…i love that they aren’t fighting and actually were arm and arm…a rare catch.

or simple sledding days in steamboat…

 

or hiking lake isabelle….

 

or ice cream dates after a mother-son dance…

simple moments of childhood forever preserved…

 

christmas morning…

 

 

sunglasses, ties and instruments…

 

our best friend…

camping…and fishing…

pretend playing on a sweet and simple weekend afternoon…

 

crafting… and hot chocolate

looking back is most definitely my favorite thing to do.

as a matter of fact, i’ve got a cup of tea brewing and i’m planning to spend the next few hours remembering.

i’d love to capture your family memories for you.  a hike, a simple afternoon together, an ice cream date.  just hanging out…

there are no dress rehearsals…what does your list look like?  let’s work together on it.

drop me a line.
