{ Project 52 Week 8 }

This weeks theme “The View From Here.” This is the view I get almost every evening looking down our driveway. I love the winter skies…and it’s been an incredible winter with the most beautiful sunsets. So on Tuesday evening, I grabbed my new fisheye lens and decided to capture the sunset while the snow still…

    If you really look at this photo the tree lines and the snow lines on the side of the driveway are almost like mirror reflections of each other. Even though they are not the same object. I always love sunsets, the last warmth of the days sun coming down before night saying see you tomorrow.ReplyCancel

This post is long overdue because I just loved so many photos from this session I had a hard time deciding which ones I wanted to share. This day I so truly enjoyed photographing Mary with her dad Jim who is a firefighter for the City of Hartford. A firefighter…something Jim has wanted to be…

    I just wanted to say thank you to Catherine for capturing the beauty of Mary and her dad, Mary is the last of four children and had a rough start so to see her so perfect in such wonderful pictures is uplifting. Thanks again Catherine.ReplyCancel

{ Project 52 Week 7 }

Theme for this week “Open Your Heart.” This week’s photo idea came pretty easy to me being that yesterday was Valentine’s Day …a day set aside to show love for others and the day I began my gratitude journal. Gratitude…the memory of our heart which will unlock the fullness of life. Gratitude helps us to…

    This is just beautiful! I don’t keep a gratitude journal, but I try to live in gratitude everyday…and it does change lives! It has changed mine and those dearest to me.ReplyCancel

      Thanks Kim. I’m really looking forward to doing the journal and just hope I can keep up with it! Keep it simple and just write. My motto!ReplyCancel


Theme for this week  “Words.” This week there were so many things I could have photographed…verses, phrases or words that meant something to me, but what I decided to photograph was a card I received 10 years ago from a very dear friend.  A card that truly changed the course of my life forever.  A…

    This card is so beautiful! It’s like God was talking to you through the card. I am so happy you listened to your heart…you are indeed blessed!ReplyCancel


Theme for this week “Muse.” This weeks challenge was to photograph our “Muse.”  Honesty, I wasn’t quite sure what it meant. So I looked it up…A muse as a noun is defined as a guiding spirit or source of inspiration. The spirit that is thought to inspire a poet or other artist. As a mom, wife, photographer,…
