"It's all about the light" in my photographic adventures.
More important for me, life is all about the Light of the world: Jesus Christ. (See the Gospel of John, chapter 1.) He's my Savior and Friend, my Light in the darkness, my Hope in all situations. I want to know Him better every day and tell others what He has done for us on the cross.
A pleasure is full grown when it is remembered. ~C.S. Lewis

Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed. ~ Walt Whitman
If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need. ~ Cicero
Two little blessings sent from above … twice the smiles, twice the LOVE!
Can you tell this family loves all things STL Blues and Disney?
Big sister and brother meet their newborn sister and are all smiles and cuddles!
These two are going to be both entertainers and protectors of her.
They loved on her and counted all her toes and fingers too!
Fritillaries visited our butterfly garden en masse this summer, perhaps due to the southerly winds from Hurricane Harvey.
The bumblebees have found my purple coneflowers! I’m still waiting patiently for the Monarchs to arrive. I’ve spotted one Tiger Swallowtail so far.
The “blanket flowers” and butterfly weed and many more plants that attract butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, and yellow finches are just waiting for visitors! I think our cool, wet Spring has affected the pollinators and butterflies so far. So I’ll keep watching!
Little sister brought her baby brother her favorite book—The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle–and he was completely mesmerized by it, as you can see!
The cocoon and hat were crocheted by Lake Effect Creations. You can find her Etsy shop online at etsy.com
Isn’t he adorable in it? A beautiful creation in God’s world!
These are a few of my favorite things!
Eyelashes. Ears. Fingers. Toes. Baby skin.
Tiny noses, lips, and chins.
What a precious miracle he is!
We made a wish, and you came true.
Once you’re parents, your marriage matters more, not less, because someone special is counting on you.
“Babies are such a nice way to start people.”
― Don Herold
I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day. When it’s cold outside, I’ve got the month of May. Well, I guess you’ll say what can make me feel this way? My girl!
First we had each other. Then we had you. Now we have everything!
When you plant milkweed and coneflowers, the monarchs WILL come!
If I were a butterfly or a bee, I’d like to live here.
Chickens make wonderful pets.
Chickens help teach responsibility with daily feeding and watering chores.
Chickens provide bonus surprises — eggs! Healthy eating!
Here’s my favorite chicken whisperer with her sweet “Cocoa.” I wouldn’t be surprised if she doesn’t have doll clothes on Cocoa sometime soon. Maybe she’ll even push her in a doll stroller. Cocoa would love that!
It was a great day at the park with this family of three, and the bonus was that the rain held off until we were done capturing many special moments.
Seven months old is a magical age! Baby P was fascinated with the ducks and people paddling on the pond. She challenged us to keep her on her special quilt made by her grandma.
Love the love that was bubbling over during this session!
She isn’t your typical “water dog” but does she ever have fun jumping off the kayak’s bow into the lake, and then shaking all over one of us!
There must be a tiny Labrador gene in her somewhere!
When we rescued her, little did we know we’d have an avid kayaker joining our family.
