i’m blogging something a bit different today. but different is good and this post has been long overdue. this past year, i’ve met,  and sometimes ‘cyber’ met, some absolutely incredible photographers. these people are not only amazing photographers, but they are amazing humans too. their kindness and encouragement has meant so much and has affirmed to me that i’m doing the right thing with my life.

these photographers have a gift. they capture the real. the beauty and the grit. they embrace their clients as friends and continuously capture the happy human spirit. their photos are alive with joy and hugs and tears and high fives and love and all things warm and happy. they push the artform forward. and that needs to be noticed.

for each photographer, i’ve picked one of my favorite images and linked their site below. give them a look. you will smile.!home/mainPage
