It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I update my “Here and There” page often but posts have been few and far between. I am feeling better, trying to shoot more and get back into the hang of things. I am optimistic that I will be able to begin shooting families again this fall although I may only take a few this year. So since I haven’t posted much, here are a few favorite images from our trip in June. (I had a small flare during this trip so I didn’t end up taking as many photos as I normally would have.) We spent the majority of our vacation in Cayucos, CA in an adorable cottage right on the beach. The town is a beautiful, quaint beach town near San Louis Obispo. We toured antique shops and ate way too many cookies at the Brown Butter Cookie Company. Almost the entire time we were visiting, there was a marine layer that stayed most of the day, the sun popped out here and there but not much. I would say it was very cold but my family had no issues with it and enjoyed the water anyway. We visited the Hearst Castle and the Elephant Seal viewpoint but mostly relaxed and enjoyed visiting with Grandma and Grandpa.

 

I photographed this beautiful family late September just before I got very sick. I lost the ability to do my photography sessions shortly after because of a horrible reaction to an antibiotic. Healing has been very slow and because of the depression associated with my illness I haven’t used my camera since. Yesterday I went to this blog and started looking at all the families I’ve photographed and the photos of my children and remembered how much I miss my art. So I promised myself I would pick up my camera again even if that means only five minutes. And I promised myself I would get this session up because this family is so special. It is so obvious in these images how much they love each other and enjoy being together. They hold a place in my heart. I hope that I’ll be able to photograph them again and other families because I miss it so much.

  • Jack - You know I want you out there taking photos. What you are able to do is very special. You bring a lot of joy to people. Use the art you were blessed with.ReplyCancel

For October’s edition of As We Are, With You, I decided to take a picture of a few of the polaroids I took this weekend. My husband was sweet enough to get me an Instax Mini for our 15th anniversary and we had so much fun with it. You only get one try unlike digital. They aren’t perfect but they are “us” and I love them.
