Andy and I are so sorry for your loss and hope that the donations given in Mary’s memory will help to eradicate this terrible disease.

To my beloved, loving and beautiful mother. Mom, you are my root, my foundation! You planted the seed that I base my life on. It was you Mother who gave me my voice. You cleared a space where my words could fall, grow, then find their way to others. I will carry you with us each day in my heart. I will mourn the loss, but rejoice that you are in a better place sitting with your mother, father and loved ones, awaiting my arrival one day. I miss you everyday. I love you so much!

Your work is really bufetiaul. I particularly love the really relaxed portraits especially the one with the jumping child caught in mid-air.One small blog design comment the way the baby’s dark hair is cropped off in the header is really distracting. I think it would work better if there were more balance between the two ends of the body (since there is white showing by the feet, but the top end of the end is cut off). The photo itself is gorgeous though.Thanks for all the hard work that you do to let us know about all of these great blogs.
