The day was beautiful and all the children were beautiful in their own special way. I wanted to share some memories from our day that ranged from special connections to being blessed to watch one of the little boys take his first steps! The smile on his mother’s face when she came to pick him up and we told her and were able to share our pictures and video clips of the moment was priceless! I can’t wait to return one day soon.

It’s no longer about me hustling to get from “point A” to “point B” but noticing, appreciating and enjoying everything in between, before I reach my destination. Whether it’s bumblebees foraging a sunflower for pollen or a butterfly that’s been attracted to a brightly colored flower rich with nectar, capturing these moments as a photographer has helped me appreciate all the things and people around me that I would…
