About Me

I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and photography is my passion. I used to be a successful fine artist, but since I shot my first wedding I never looked back. I am madly and completely in love with weddings, I guess it is the romantic in me :)

Rain induced thoughts!

Last night we had a lot of rain, more then I have seen in months, with so much rain coming down the mountain it was no surprise that the power went of.
I work 7 days a week on my computer to do all the post processing of the pictures I take and designing the albums for my couples, so much of the time I am to busy to let my thoughts wander to other things. Last night with the blackout in my little home all kind of things came to my mind. Most of all I was thinking about families..........
Almost every weekend I am surrounded by loving families sending their children of to a new life.
It warms my heart when I see that over and over again.
But there are other kinds of families, not just those bound by blood. I found that out when I lost my husband. Of course, my children were here for me and I knew their father would have been so proud how they stood by my side, but when tragic events happen you find out who your friends are.............those that go beyond the normal. Those people are our chosen families.......
people that love us not because it is expected, but simply because they do. Laying there in the dark last night I knew that I was very fortunate to have all those people in my life and all of a sudden I did not feel lonely or even scared anymore (that rain and wind in the darkness was somewhat scary) I knew I was surrounded by "my" big family ..........the phone calls I received last night from friends checking on me were proof of that.
