this is the stuff.

this is the stuff.
this is life.
whether you have babies or not.
this is what needs to be captured.
the simple but lovely & priceless moments.
the fleeting moments. 
your almost 2-year-old thinking he's hot stuff,
trying to climb out of the bath.
before you know it, he'll be 18, home from college & yelling for a clean towel in his deep, man voice.
if only we could savor & soak up these moments as well as the camera does.
their chubby & beautiful thighs & carefree ways.
but we have our pictures, right?
when our memories fade & we've grown up right along with them,
we'll have these images to take us back.
and that's what i want to do for you.
capture these moments.
as much as i love 'urban' backdrops & alley ways & fields of tall grasses swaying in the sunset,
this is the stuff.
the real stuff.
this is what i want to get for you, if you'll let me.
your babies bathing, riding their bikes in the driveway, running through the sprinkler in the yard, playing go fish with daddy.  snuggling in your bed with a good book.
some of this.
let's go somewhere cool!
and get this!
your kids TRULY being kids & living in their kid moments!!!
the moments we'll only get to relive in pictures.
or just swingin'.
but this is where my work is going to start leanin'.
so lean with me.:)
do the opposite of what you would normally do.
get the REAL & TRUE stuff.
