It’s All About Textures!

January 25, 2010


I Heart Faces has a great themed challenge this week – textures!

 I love the warmth and depth that comes from adding a little richness of color, and the change in mood and feeling that textures can bring to a photo.  The range of possibilities is endless, the palette everchanging.  It’s a great way to express one’s self as a photographer, adding a uniqueness that’s fun to experiment with.

Here’s Clara…4 days old…delicate and tiny…dreamy and content.

Bliss… Isn’t that a wonderful feeling? 

With sand in my toes, gentle breezes in my hair, and the quiet surf rolling on shore, I loved every moment of the Delray Beach shoot with my daughter, Connor and her 3 week old daughter, Clara Louise.  The happiness that radiated from both mother and child was truly…bliss.

As the setting sun changed the sky from blue to gold and finally to peach, we marveled at our good fortune in having this special evening together.  When so much of our family was shoveling snow, we were brushing the sand from our jeans and heading back down the beach.  What a great way to spend the Christmas weekend.

Happy New Year and I wish everyone a bit more….bliss!



A Special Christmas Gift

December 23, 2009

She just couldn’t wait another week, arriving just ahead of schedule.  She arrived on a beautiful Sunday morning, being carefully placed in the arms of her tearful new parents.  They thought they knew love before, but now it had meaning undefined by mere words.  Their precious baby girl was here – Clara Louise. 

Text messages to be sent, pictures to be taken, hugs to be given, prayers of thankfulness to be whispered…life was reshaping itself gloriously moment by moment.

Blessed to be the grandmother of our family’s newest miracle, I arrived with camera in hand ready to shoot through my own tears of joy.  And here she is, the Christmas present we all were waiting for. 

 Enjoy our gift….. Robin
