Camp Squeah’s 50th Anniversary!

Posted on December 24, 2012

Spent many of my best childhood memories at Camp Squeah as a camper. Three summers on staff too. Much of who I am today would be directly related to the community of people who surrounded me in those foundational years. Our kids go there now – and their grandparents – just as mine had – make that gift possible. ‘Home away from Home’.

When I was asked to take some still life images of Squeah for a poetry/photo coffee table commemorative album – I was honored. Many of my images ended up in the book – which is a lovely reflection of Squeah. You can preview the book here.

On July 21st 2012 – we not only attended but volunteered as a family up at Squeah – reconnecting with friends and participating in “a day a Squeah”. Here are a few images I captured that weekend.

Celia had me over to meet her new sister Lily. She sure was happy to see me, first she showed me her baby… then her new sister. :)

Lily – kept quiet and peaceful – sleeping for a few pictures.

While I was taking pictures of Lily, Celia and Daddy were having a snack together on the couch.

Then when Celia was done, she came and joined in the fun. :)

Celia sure does love her new sister Lily.

Just as Mommy and Daddy do.

Welcome into the world Lily. Congratulations to you all.

Ian & Miranda and Celia

(One more blog catch up post from 2011)

We got together to grab a couple images for family Christmas cards … you may remember I have had the privilege of photographing this family

a few times before. :) I have always been appreciated and valued as an artist by Miranda and Ian, and it has been an honor to be trusted to capture these fleeting moments in their life.

Jordyn brought her little brother Tanner for his first photograph. We had a good time. They are such sweethearts. :)

Fun on the Farm with Luke

Posted on February 20, 2012

As some of you may remember I had the privilege of photographing a beautiful little boy named Luke, and his family back in October 2009 and again when we stopped into visit him at the hospital not long after. Luke was in the midst of a battle for his life  – one that he is winning today. And excerpt from his blog for family and friends…

“Luke was diagnosed with Philadelphia Chromosome Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ph+ ALL) on October 2nd, 2008.  He was 16 months old.  Luke is now 4 1/2.  He completed his 3 yr protocol in September of this year.  Luke’s cancer level as of Nov, 2011, was still detectable.  Luke continues on a drug targeted at the PH+ which we hope and pray will keep the cancer at bay or better yet make it disappear.”

I am so grateful for the  privilege of meeting him and his family – so blessed to be able to watch him grow up and see how much he changed since we first met. I am exited for him that he now knows full fun days without the pain and burdens of cancer treatments and hospitals. That he is able to enjoy God’s creation – to get outside and play with his friend and family. The following pictures are from a special day in the fall when we went to the Apple Barn together on a filed trip and I was able to capture a few images of Luke dong just that.

If you are the praying kind – I ask you to continue to pray for this beautiful boy and his family – that they will have many more days, weeks, months and years TOGETHER like this one.

The Hergott Family –

I have more than a little blog catching up to do… I ‘ll start here.

I loved every moment of our shoot this warm summer day last August – we had such a fantastic time – it was beautiful light and an opportunity to capture something I had never had a chance to before – haying.

The Top Ten

Posted on October 8, 2011

The Top Ten – you know, we all have them – the people in our lives – who by their actions, their love and support or solely by their example – they help make you who you are – the best of you. And not because you see them day in, day out, like your immediate family – maybe you don’t even see them all that much – but when you do – everything is as it has always been – there are no barriers – you see them and they see you. For me, Rob and Kim are those people – they are in my top ten. I have known them for “many moons” as they say and they have seen my through all the stages of my life – and loved me through all of them, unconditionally. These images are extra special – they are for me. :)

A day at the beach…
