it's all in the eyes

i can't watch a show when it focuses on an eye.
i have a hard time checking someone's eye when they have something in it.
i can't look when someone folds their eyelid or pulls down under their eye.
all that makes me nauseous.


i love eyes.
they are so complicated, 
a smile can reach the eyes.
depth of sadness can be captured in the eyes.
fear, shock, astonishment, 
joy, love, amazement...
all revealed in the eyes.

unsure eyes.  
Santa was in the room.

ok, so they're not real eyes...
still fascinating.

curious eyes.

re*dress (me) *part 1*

as of December 
i will have been married to my best friend for 10 years.
we had a winter wedding 
- i'd never change that - 
but i'll be honest here, i had always dreamt that i'd have an autumn wedding.
what a way to celebrate 10 years 
than to get back into that dress and take some new pics.
in the autumn.

my friend Cailagh,
my 'assistant' for the day,
and i went back on my property and had a fun time snapping pictures.
a rainy..

i would prefer to be behind the lens, not in front..
but i do like these.

Fall Family (K&B and kids)

this family was an encouragement to me.
B saw some other pics i took of people and called me up one day 
asking if i could take some family photos for her.
i was so encouraged.
i haven't put my name out as a photographer but my friends and family 
are seeing my love and liking my work.

i hope B & family are happy with the shots.

here's a few.

what a beautiful morning we had for these.

on fire

it can destroy
it can save lives
it can warm
it can burn
we can eat because of it
we can lose everything because of it.
we must respect the power of it.
i love fire.
