Faithfully Thinking: A little more of a little less: why the fear of missing out is killing us

Our brain was not wired to process the amount of information we throw at it on a daily basis. The shows we watch. The news we tune into. The podcasts we listen to. The social media we scroll through. The trends and news and health warnings and even the good stuff that is aimed at growing us spiritually. It is information over load. Pastor … Read More Faithfully Thinking: A little more of a little less: why the fear of missing out is killing us

Golden Hour

Finding your voice

Finally finding your photography voice is both blissful and terrifying.  There was a time I didn’t see the value in the shadows. Shadows were a nuisance and darkened what I really wanted to see. I moved all around and repositioned the pieces until everything was in the light and under my control again, just where I liked it. When I could control I felt … Read More Finding your voice

Things Good Photographers Do….Apparently

I’ve noticed recently, from what I see on Instagram and Facebook, a few things that good photographers (apparently) do: Make sure there is sun flare in every single photo they take and if it isn’t there add it in Photoshop.  Take photos of your young children in a cart at target because target is..?

I just couldn’t believe the sight of that tiny toddler body laying flat on her face at the end of the checkout line in silent protest of her unwillingness to move where her mother wanted her to go. Wow. What drama. Whose child was this?  That mother must be so embarrassed. Oh wait. That was my child laying motionless and whimpering on the floor … Read More Whose kid is that?! | Sayre, Pennsylvania Child Photographer

Embracing the role of motherhood

For 13 years when someone asked what I did for a living I said “I’m a newspaper reporter”.  It made me feel like I had accomplished something in life. Four years of college, a degree, and a job in what I went to college for. I was a contributing member of society. I was a public servant, informing the community. I was important, at … Read More Embracing the role of motherhood

Trying to be still and remember He is God

Some days life is all topsy turvy. The world seems upside down and turned around these days. What was once up is now down and what was once frowned upon is now applauded. Those who say they love children and babies only protect them once they are born, not before. Those who say they support women don’t support them if suggest we respect ourselves … Read More Trying to be still and remember He is God

When I look at this photo of you I see a little boy who has my heart completely and has since the day I first learned you were growing inside me.

How hard it must be for you to have been given parents … Read More Letters to my Son January | Athens, Pennsylvania Child Photographer
