    Catherine….You captured the essence of being a child…how simply beautiful. I wish you were around when my children were that young (instead of doing studio sittings like we all did in the 70’s.) You seem to captured something special in every photo you do. You are a remarkable photographer and you should be very proud to have won for you “Reflection” photo. I would be very proud to have you as my photographer at some point in the near future. Now my children are in their 40’s so I will be in touch when I can gather them in the same place at the same time for you to do a family series of portraits. God has blessed you with a great eye, keep making families happy with your beautiful work. Bette Davis MacDonaldReplyCancel

Theme for this week “Reflection.” This week’s challenge filled my heart with so much joy as I photographed this darling little boy Ryan.  It brought back so many memories of my little boy when he was around Ryan’s age and it reminded me too on how time passes by so quickly. The innocence of childhood…….
