StevieWhen my Nikon showed up at my door, I felt as though the stork had delivered my baby. I’ll never forget lifting it out of the box and holding it up thinking…I’ve been dreaming of you. I knew it would take time to get to know it, but first I needed to make sure it, and the lens I’d bought for it, simply worked. So, I loaded it all up and walked into our bedroom where our cat Stevie was napping. We joke that Stevie is our “wild child.” He was a rescue and has been a lovable little terror compared to our first cat (Roo). I crouched down by the side of our bed where he was sitting in a Sphinx pose and asked him, “Wanna pose for me?” Just like that, he rolled onto his side and I took my very first photograph with the friend I would come to call Sidney.

IMG_3200During a beautiful fall day, my family and I took a walk through the grounds of Gillette Castle in Connecticut. As we tend to do, my mother and I got lost in chatty conversation and my fiance walked up ahead of us. By the time we caught up to him, he had perfectly framed himself in the light pouring through this bridge. At the time, I only had my crappy little point-and-shoot, but I was still so glad I had it!

Washington Sunset

WASunsetOne of my favorite things to do during our trips to Yakima, Washington is to go for drives. This was a shot I snapped from the passenger seat.
