I cannot even begin to properly explain how I feel about photography.
I’ve always loved it: looking at photos, dissecting them, finding the nuances and figuring out why a photograph works. Now, since I’ve invested in some classes, equipment, and editing programs I’ve become a true, enthusiastic student of photography. This journey has beenÂ amazing and endless, overwhelming and breathtaking.
My favorite part is giving a photo to someone that they wouldn’t otherwise have – of them or their child or a place they’ve been. The slight intake of breath and that moment of awe…that is my favorite part. I’ve come to realize, as I look back over my years of work, these moments are fleeting. My son who plays football today may stop and do something else. Of course the memories are there but photographs bring memories back to life in a way nothing else can. It’s specific, tangible evidence of a moment that may be forgotten otherwise.

I’m very excited about this week’s #AskAwayFriday. Each week I sign up I get a little more comfortable but it’s still hard to shake the feeling of being a little more exposed. It’s a good thing, but it’s not easy. This week I’m partnering with April from 100lb Countdown.
Are you feeling it? I’m feeling it. Spring is here, the daffodils are blooming, it’s getting warmer and the end of the school year is in sight. I am most definitely seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. That long, cold, snowy winter tunnel. This time of year
Spring means Lacrosse Spring in Connecticut…freezing rain, blowing wind, damp and cold. Obviously the next thing that comes to mind should be outdoor lacrosse tryouts. Spending two hours outside shivering, dressed for winter and holding an umbrella. Fantastic way to spend a Sunday. The only thing worse would be to
