While Easter happens only one day each year, I try to capture it daily with my camera. There are some things we have come to expect in this life. Easter is about the acceptance of these things no matter what the circumstance as well as having awe over the things beyond our control. Capturing these things is an all year task that I gladly accept. Happy Easter to everyone! These are some of my photos that truly represent Easter to me.
Taken at a barn collapse during this winter's blizzard, this rescue effort ended in tragedy for this animal, but not before the loving acceptance and compassion of this man.
While getting my kids on the bus, this was the early morning view. Sometimes we take it for granted. This shots a reminder not to miss a thing, the view lasted a few minutes.
I took this during one of my senior shoots last year. Kristen so perfectly embodies affection and warmth. The ability to connect is an amazing virtue.
I have always loved a good landscape. On this warm summer evening, it felt like God wanted to be heard.
Taken in Ireland with my camera at my hip. This lady, while living in a sad circumstance, seemed to accept her plight.
One of my favorite photos. When you cross the finish-line of an Ironman, there is nothing left but raw emotion. I never got to give this man his photo and I'll never know his real story. It stays with me as a reminder of keeping those important to you close.
This was taken a few years back on a subway with Kate. Her inner sense of calm will get her through life, even when life throws dirty looks at her. She is an amazing kid.
This was taken of family friends only 2 months prior to an over-whelming loss of their child. Holding the ones you love close is really what it all comes down to.
Taken a few years back of Pete as he embarked on one of his many adventures. I believe that he will go far on his curiosity alone. He inspires me.
I took this one of a close friend's daughter. Never have I been more happy to capture a girl in her beautiful prom dress as no one deserved it more than her. I am blow away by this inspirational and beautiful hero.
This was taken in the Bahamas. I sat watching this man for a while. He had his hands out-reached for minutes before he finally took a dive into the clear waters. He seemed more connected to something greater than few I have seen before.
A father and son accepting who they are and sharing a quick moment. I was fortunate to capture this and for some reason, can't stop looking at it.
I took this when I was in the hospital with kidney stones(again!). While it pales in comparison to what others I know are going through, it's a reminder to take care of myself and those around me and live with no regrets.
