Isn’t funny how the beginning of a new school year brings a change in perspective on the seasons?  Enjoy the season that you’re in right now because the next one will surely come soon enough.

I completely agree! You only have 80 summers in your life…if you are lucky. Soak them up!! 🙂 great shots.

Carlton Farms…

As the old saying goes, I am directionally challenged and absolutely nothing without my GPS.  And on occasion, I am still nothing even with it.

A couple of weeks ago we were on our way home from the lake and even with the help of our GPS we made a wrong turned that turned out to be alright by me.  The wrong way drive took us through absolutely stunning farm country, and I was able to sweet talk my chauffeur into pulling over for a quick sunset visit with the farm animals at Carlton Farms.

As it turns out, I have stumbled upon this farm in the past, and have sense made a wrong turn on purpose to go back and visit with the kind people that own this beautiful farm.

Here’s to being at the right place at the right time.

Summer Sunflowers…

Let’s just get this out there.  I am not a huge fan of Summer thunderstorms, and we’ve had a couple of real doozies in our small town this week.  Even though they’ve caused some session shuffling, they’ve also given me a chance to head out and capture a bit of nature’s own sunshine to share.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.



Mary Kelly…

It’s no secret that I am head-over-heels in love with photography, and senior sessions are always special to me.  This session held an extra special place in my heart because Mary Kelly’s mom and I have been friends since 2nd grade.  I would have been content to spend the whole day catching up with these two, and that I was able to be a part of this special time in their lives was such a huge honor.

Here are a few of my favorites from our afternoon together, but be sure and check back often because there is so much beauty coming soon.
