Making New Year’s resolutions is typically not my thing. But for 2016 I made a year-long commitment to take (at least) one photograph each day–a ‘365 Project.’ Some photographers give themselves “rules” for their 365–only shots of family, new technique each week or some other focus for their project.

I’ve wanted to do a photo shoot with her for several years, but hesitated because–you know what they say […]

Here’s why I love her so much: She always finds the best seat in the house …or outside the house She has a sophisticated palate She’s a birdwatcher She really knows how to relax And she’s […]
Story hour at the Shepherd household. Okay, so maybe it was story ten minutes. Yes, at least four or five books were covered. Well, maybe not covered as in “cover-to-cover.” And, ahem, there were one or two distractions. Hmm, maybe there were really a dozen or so distractions. Please note: story hour was kitten approved.
