R Family | Babb Run Park |

There’s something really special watching how simple & beautiful a family is.  This session was full of doting side glances,  tender hugs and grasps.

There is also some competition apparent in rock skipping.  Little Roman is sure to be a natural, as his parents are pro’s!

Loved watching this family interact and enjoy their hike as I captured their Love.

Thank you to the R Family. Please know I am grateful for this opportunity.

International Women’s Day – Tribute post

In honor of International Women’s Day I’d like to give a shout out to my good friend Amanda Crow.
We recently did a photo shoot with her 2 rescued pitbulls for Pin ups for Pitbulls. A non profit organization; “PFPB hopes to end discrimination, abuse, and the unnecessary killing of pit bull-type dogs around the world–all the while dreaming that one day, PFPB will no longer be needed.”

She also was a guest writer on Your Daily Vegan on the topic of International Women’s Day and Veganism. She wrote an excellent article 2 years ago that’s growing in popularity that you can read here.

To Amanda & all women today and always, keep sharing your compassion with the world and never apologize for it. All we need is love and love is all we need.

ATV trip to McHenry, MD

This year I went a bit crazy and financed a four wheeler. There isn’t too many places to go where I live, so when we got invited to Deep Creek Maryland, there was no passing up the chance! If I could use one word to describe the entire trip, it would be “Spoiled”! Our friend’s let us stay in a beautiful cabin they had reserved for the anniversary! We stopped at Swallow Falls State Park, which by the way was packed with people with either the Fall Foilage lovers and/or the national parks being shut down and closed. This park had a lot of damage from Storm Sandy, but was still breath taking. I have been four wheeling in some pretty places, but riding in the mountains here was just absolutely perfect. I’ve never had so much fun, let alone I had my camera strapped on my quad! Best trails, best views and a chance to capture it all! Great trip and will be going back in the future!
