Or is it fluffy buttery pancakes with classic maple syrup?The answer to that question, of course, is both. This week’s edition of Foodie Friday combines two of my favorite […]

Gluten Free Butternut Squash Soup | Foodie Friday So, I changed my mind: Instead of Recipe Sunday, let’s do Foodie Friday!

Angel Oak Johns Island, South Carolina We are destination wedding photographers. So, en-route to an engagement session in Hilton Head SC, we took a strongly suggested detour to see the Angel Oak.

The day of our wedding was a chilly, dreary day. All of the recent flower blooms had been wiped away by a late season ice storm. The day itself began with a bit of a rough start and further disappointing weather. Then, I arrived at the ceremony; where you were waiting to marry me. Everyone […]

Wonderful Spring. The first sprigs of greenery after a long cold winter, the first smell of barbecue in the neighborhood, and fresh flowers straight from the yard. Even though we had a relatively mild winter this past year, I’m still giddy for spring. The vibrantly alive color combinations a counterpoint to mild spring breezes…invigorating. My […]
