About Me

My photo
After being told I would never be able to have children, I am now a stay-at-home Mommy to Maddie who happens to have Down Syndrome. I've been married 16 years to my best friend, having the time of my life. Thanks for stopping by and sharing in our little journey through life.

Got it!

I try and take pictures every day. Some days you get the shot and some days you don't. Well, today...I GOT THE SHOT! I love this picture. I love how you can see the movement of Gracie's tongue with the blur and how you can almost hear Maddie's cute little laugh she has when playing with Gracie.

In my photography class, we began talking about what it takes to get the angles we need for more interesting photos. I practiced this at the Buddy Walk yesterday. The first photo is OK, but see how it gets so much better and more interesting when I crouch down on Maddie's level?

Jumping in...

OK, I've decided to finally join the blog world.  I've been thinking about it for a while now and have felt so intimidated, but finally I realized it's no big deal, right?  Just post a few pics here and there of the little one for the grandparents to see, and occasionally include some of my pictures I've taken while working on improving my photography skills and voila!  A new time-consuming adventure that opens me up to the world to be criticized and judged and laughed at that will be lots and lots of fun...right?
Go easy on me world!
