"It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living."

(Dear S)
Walt Whitman said it, and I believe it down to my bones...
"You are so much sunshine to the square inch."






Maybe there are too many photos here. 
I'm finding it harder and harder to edit down to just a few of my favorites. I guess my theory is, why take them if I can't share them? The answer of course, is that I take pictures for myself. It fills a creative desire in me that since S was born, I haven't the time to fill in other ways. I have a Graphic Design degree that I have never used. Ironically enough, printing and photography were the two areas that I found no passion for while working towards my degree. I never would have dreamt that taking pictures would mean so much to me today. Maybe it is because of Sunny that I feel the passion now. I want her to look back one day and be able to see how we spent our days together, even if she doesn't always remember them. I hope that she will see the love that I hold in my heart for her through these photos and my words. My words may not always be poetic, but I do wish for them to come more easily and freely so as to fit properly with my photos... 
these precious memories we make.


  1. I really like your photos, and no, there are not too much :D You seem to be enjoying there of that phase of autumn that is already over here, and it's really nice to look your pictures.
    By the way, my children saw the little gnome in your halloween-post, and they loved it! In finland halloween is not commonly celebrated, but with little help from childrens tv-programs, my little ones knew how it should go. so i had to make them ghost-outfits :D

  2. I love, love, love the photos! I wish I had the energy to even bring the girls to places like that! Where the heck are you anyway?

  3. Thank you Inkeroinen. I'm happy that you like my pictures. :) Wonderful that your kiddo's got to dress up as ghosts. Isn't it fun?

    2 cute girls~ I promise you that you can find places such as this just about anywhere.

  4. beautiful photos, really love your duck, they do forget so much so it will be lovely to show the kids when they're all grown.
