This recipe is a staple in our house for Thanksgiving or other holidays. I love that it makes 2-3 pies so you can share with friends or neighbors. You’ll need: 3 Pillsbury graham cracker crusts (8in, or two of the bigger ones)2 sticks Philadelphia cream cheese (no other brands, I am telling you)3 cans of […]

Every year I do a personal photo round up and I pick three positive things per month that happened that year. Or, at least I try to. Some years it’s harder than others. I think for 2020 I only managed one positive thing per month, but I try. January 2021 – I enjoyed photographing the […]

We can’t predict the days that this will happen, just like we don’t control the weather. But what happens when that day is photo session day? I’ve been a teacher or a photographer for 20+ […]

When she was only 3 months old, Madelyn endured trauma at the hands of someone who was supposed to take care of her. She was shaken violently, resulting in brain damage, visual loss, cerebral palsy, and a host […]

Nora’s nominator writes “Nora Couch is an amazing 8-year girl. She was born with a condition called Congenital Hypothyroidism. Nora was nonverbal until almost 3 and was diagnosed with Autism. She has progressed amazingly due to the diligence and hard work of her parents and early intervention. We and all who meet her call Nora a […]
