For the love of photography…

One year later…

Just catching up – a whole year later.. noticing no photos posted here.. Part of the problem with social media, is just keeping up with it! Sorry for the LONG delay….

I have cut out a number of my photo sessions over the past year – I was simply going to post a few photos here – all taken with my Iphone! Heck, there are even classes out there now on how to use your Iphone for perfect pics! amazing….

So, here’s the deal – I’ve been hoping to combine some of my “favorites”  – those being things I’m passionate about and keep my going.. Photography was one of the first activities to spur that sensation.. Then, a few years ago came fiber , yarn, spinning wheels and knitting needles – who knew! Then I started to photograph what I was creating! Boom! loved it!

I’ll be working to create some workshops this coming spring/summer – which will , hopefully – highlight my love for simply making things from our fiber resources and capturing photos of them…  My pets and the animals I care for, will, of course, continue to be a part of that too….




Snow Day…

An unexpected snow day is always a nice surprise… The yard, the trees, everything takes on a different appearance…. and it’s always a beautiful appearance at that…. Our dog, Bob, loves a good run in the snow too.


Alpaca Adventures….


Recently, my part time “job” has taken on some new meaning… I love working around animals and being on farms… It may be the dead heat of the summer, when most people are at the beach and in the pool. I certainly don’t deny my 7 year old of any “typical” fun summer stuff – she gets to the pool, water parks and beaches just plenty. However, my work on a small alpaca farm has been getting lots of her attention lately. She loves to read and talk to these sensitive little guys (as we try to restructure their hard-to-handle-handling habits). She has no fear, and in return, they show her kindness and curiosity. I see her learning things that would never happen in a classroom.  At the same time, the stress of my husband’s “regular job” seems to dissipate when he comes up to the farm and starts tinkering with old fences, ancient locks and gritty grain to feed the herd.

I’d gladly give up my “regular” work to be here every day instead – this little herd has been teaching us so many things about ourselves. I’m so very grateful to these boys – they may just be 8 alpaca, but they’re some of the best teachers I’ve been around in some time! (and yes, I’m a teacher, but always learning….)
