"Framed" Photo for I Heart Faces contest

 This photo was submitted to the I Heart Faces photo challenge – www.iheartfaces.com

This week's I Heart Faces photo contest topic is "Framed."  I immediately thought of this photo I had taken of a high school senior and had to submit it.  See all the other great submissions, too.

Love in it's most raw form - WINS PRIZE!

As my continued involvement in Operation Love ReUnited, I had the very humbling and emotional honor of photographing a homecoming for a family with a 4 month old baby girl meeting her daddy for the first time, and it was on December 23rd, just to add to the specialness of this moment.  Something tells me this little girl is going to be spoiled for some time to come!  As well she should be!  Mad a great start to the holiday season.  If you are a military family or a photographer curious about this wonderful volunteer program, you can check out Operation Love ReUnited at www.oplove.org  .... I get much more than I give from this experience.
UPDATE:  This Photo just won first place in a photo competition hosted by AdoramaPix for the theme: Love.  Feels good to be recognized for your work:  Check out the link on the OpLove site here at:  www.oplove.org/blog

May Flowers

The May Challenge at Rock The Shot is flowers.  This photo continues to be my favorite flower photo.... not posed... just caught in the moment... still my favorite photos.  Miss O was just precious and her mommy was so generous in letting me take some candid shots of her.  Thank you.  And everyone, remember that innocence of your childhood when you still took time to stop and smell the flowers....

This week's theme for the I Heart Faces photo competition is Beautiful B & W.  Beautiful is such a subjective word.... but I personally can't think of anything more beautiful than a baby laughing a full-on belly laugh, especially when she's my granddaughter in her beautiful mother's arms.  For more beautiful photos check out I Heart Faces.

Pure Love

Rock the Shot is a fabulous forum for photographers. Not surprisingly, the theme for photo entries in February's contest is "Love."   Love is what I am always trying to capture in the photos I take of people.. whether it be with couples, parents and children, siblings, pets, etc.  I work to get them relaxed and try for a "catch" when they're not posing but just being REAL in the moment!  I have SO MANY favorites that I believe portray Love of so many different kinds, but this one just stands out to me from all the rest because it is so pure and raw.. motherly love at it's best.  Thanks mommy D for allowing me to share such a special photo with the world.  Check out more fabulous photographer's interpretations of LOVE at their wesite here: www.rocktheshotforum.com

Still Waiting

Had the distinct honor and humble opportunity to photograph a homecoming of a fighter pilot and his wife.  This beautiful woman gave me permission to post this photo I took because it moved me so much.  God bless our troops and the families who so patiently wait for them while they serve our country.
