Archive for 2009
What an amazing, inspiring year it’s been. I’ve been so blessed to pause over the past few days and reflect on the people I’ve met, miles logged, and astounding beauty that I’ve been able to capture throughout this year. Sometimes we get so caught up in the day-to-day bustle that we forget to stop and let ourselves breathe… which is why this year’s selection of my favorite images (both personal and professional) were some of the moments that took my breath away. Truly, la vie est belle–life is beautiful.

Each one of you has been part of the extraordinary journey this year, and for your kindness, wisdom and faith I am so very grateful.
My wish for you in the new year is to live joyfully, with passion and grace. The gifts you will receive are tenfold.
Be Well. See you in the new year!
I’m so, so excited for what this next year holds. So many promises and challenges, and it’s going to be an exciting adventure. And in honor of the lives and moments I’ve captured over the past many months of 2009, I wanted to share some of my favorite moments with the people who made them happen. I hope that each day, they see themselves the way I did during their session—filled with wonder and love.
Sharing blessings with others is one of my favorite things about the holidays! My wish for each of you is that you’re able to share the many joys of the season with those you love and have changed your life.
Our resident three-year-old in our home is pretty excited for the holidays. And to celebrate recently at preschool, parents were invited into the classroom to participate in a favorite annual activity—building gingerbread houses. Made with plenty of icing and graham crackers, it was a delight to be part of my little man’s morning.
Each child’s personality really showed in their creations…we had lots of gumdrop “lights” on our house. (“It’s sparkly,” he says.)
All I want for Christmas is :: a new iPhone case…from PANTONE!
Yes, I think this officially confirms my status as a total dork. But that’s OK, I’d have an iPhone case in my favorite PMS color.
He’s the one person children save up all their wishes and dreams to pour out on—after all, he embodies the spirit of the holidays and that dreams can come true. On this brisk, bitterly cold night, everyone could feel the warmth and love shared with Santa, as he patiently listened to each child’s Christmas wish. Amidst many laughs and a few tears, it was my honor to photograph these children (among many others) in their special moment with the jolly man in red.
I was thrilled to be part of this event—a very heartfelt thank you to Grand Mère Village and Ann-A-Lee’s for keeping us warm and toasty, and everyone who braved the cold to experience Christmas in the Village!
