Simple Pleasures...

Finally, things are slowing down enough that I have time to actually think. And I've been doing a LOT of thinking. And relaxing. While I have been thinking and relaxing, I've been considering the simple pleasures in my life. Things that make me happy. Thought I'd share a few:

  • a steaming hot cup of fresh coffee in my favorite mug
  • my pink converse sneakers
  • my dog greeting me when I come home
  • an unexpected phone call from a friend "just because"
  • Godiva chocolate
  • really soft socks
  • Christmas Wreath scented Yankee candles
  • hearing my fav song on the radio, twice in one day
  • having a good hair day
  • the smell of fall in the air

It's fun to photograph the little brother of someone you photographed years ago, such was the case with Norman.

Photographer of the Year

I am honored to have won three awards at the Triangle Photographers Annual Convention this past weekend in Pittsburgh including trophies for "Best Wedding Portrait", "Best Portrait by a Certified Professional Photographer" and "Photographer of the Year". These are the images I entered in the competition.

What could be better than winning three trophies in one night??? Winning them with your best friend! That's right, my friend Tamar London also won three trophies at the convention. Together we had a pretty amazing night!

Here we are with our good friend Michael Connors of More Photos and Tom Stanley of White House Custom Color who sponsored the trophies that we won.
