Wall of Hope April 29, 2009

My photo-friend Laura Dillion has a very rare type of cancer.  She is creating a Wall of Hope to bring peace and hope to all those going through this ordeal.  She asked me to submit my picture of Logan, jumping at Lake Michigan.  I was very honored, and of course, sent her my picture.  Here is a link to her blog…

Thanks Laura for touching my life, you are a true inspiration.

I have my domain name pointed to zenfolio for photo hosting.  It’s a step up from flickr and a good stepping stone to my own website.  Check out

I have plenty more photos to add.  I will also be offering private galleries to people after I do their photo sessions.

Here is a pic of Carly at the zoo.  We were in the polar bear tunnel.  I missed the bear but took a snap of her.  I love the blues and her reflection in the glass – not to mention her adorable little self!img_6789carlyweb


found a little kitty

Not my usual subject matter but I wanted to play with my new lens.  Love the reach of this zoom and the sharpness even after I cropped this from a larger photo.  Enough of this this kitty I need some new kiddies to try it out on.

I went to the County Clerk and registered my business name.

pArt of Life Photography.  I’ve had the name in my mind, and the domain name, for over a year.

I’ll be updating my blog with more samples of my work.  I will also be putting up information on getting in on my portfolio building sessions.  Stay tuned!

Last night I went to a wonderful photography seminar put on by Sandy Puc.  It was her second of a series – this one called Tots to Teens.  It was very informational and inspirational.  If you are a photographer check her out and find out about next years dates!

are shared in northern Michigan.  Even after going to Gaylord for years we are still discovering new spots.  This is taken at a spot I’d never been even though it’s at the resort where had our wedding reception.
