At the beginning of June, I turned 33 years old (!) and all I wanted for my birthday were some family photos.  Not snaps on my phone, but real, legit, paid for professional family photos.  I love photography – I love taking photos, being in photos, I even love looking at other people’s’ photos (not in a creepy way).  Something about being able to capture a fleeting moment in time resonates with me.  I’m utterly in awe of people who can take photos that capture not just a moment, but the essence of that moment, or that person.   Continue reading
