Prairie Sun

“We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts and live our own lives in a way that is not possible for those keeping up with the crowd.”
― Laura Ingalls WilderYogaSun2kpweb

Truly a blessing…

The majority of these images were obtained using available window light in the home. It just seems easier to not take the baby out. If flash was used, it was bounced for fill only and not direct.

I was the father’s kindergarten teacher and photographed the couple’s wedding, so I feel truly blessed to capture this miracle of life.

Nudging Mother Nature…

“I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful — an endless prospect of magic and wonder.”
— Ansel Adams
