What a beautiful day for....

..just about anything you choose to do outside. Jackson (I love this name and it suits him) was out for a little pony riding. (I love ponies too!) He just made my morning. Such a cute little pony rider!

If I can.

If I can ease some of your pain and suffering for just a while, it also makes me feel better too. I am a nurse.
If I can capture a moment that makes your heart swell each time you see it before you, then my journey has a solid path. I am a photographer.

Meet Bob...

Bob is an amazing guy. I love him. I don't think I have ever seen him not smiling. He really knows how to enjoy life. And he is a guy with a big BIG heart. Recently, Bob decided to show support and raise money for children with cancer by shaving his head. I should have a before picture, but alas (wait-maybe I do)

I found one! But you can't see his thick lustrous hair beneath the hat....oh well, you can imagine.

And this is Bob today....(now a few talking points first) I'm sorry Bob that the lighting isn't just quite what it should be. I am not a 5 minute corporate headshot gal-YET- but I'll get there. Plus, I was going on one hour of sleep. Ugh! This has never really happened to me and I still feel pretty crummy and have a BUNCH of stuff to do today with, you guessed it, NO energy to muster up at all. Those Rock Star drinks really do work. The "Recovery" one is my recent favorite. I apparently "recovered" myself all the way to the next day. (getting a bit off course)
I am also not happy about the wrinkled backdrop/reflector that I thought I could smooth out in post. Can you iron a reflector?
All that aside- you look amazing!! My camera loves you- and I do too!

And you can see here that Bob is now a FORCE to be reckoned with. He has a new persona and he wears it well- it does not wear him. YE-OWWWW!!

Here is Bob's side of it... please check out his link. I have worked with cancer patients for many years, but I know that I don't have the courage to work with kids. I would cry everyday. There is nothing more important than helping children everywhere.

"I was looking in Vegas Weekly to see what concerts were coming to Vegas
during our stay for the homicide conference. I observed an ad for an
event at the Nine Fine Irishman's Pub at New York New York Hotel which
was being put on by The event was asking people to
collect donations and have their head shaved for children's cancer
research. The head shave resembles the loss of hair that patients
suffer as a result of treatment. Since I needed a haircut anyway, it
seemed like a good idea. In less than a week, several family members
and friends donated $370.00 towards the cause.

I had never heard of this, but apparently this occurs every year and
Irish Pubs around the country. It was a really nice event with Irish
bands playing right on the strip along with cocktails and beers. I plan
to get several people together for this event next year. I figure if I
can raise $370.00 in a few days with nothing more than an email, than
how much can be raised with more time, a little competition and a
celebration involving liquor at the end.

Additionally, even those that don't want to shave their head can sign up
to be shavers instead and collect the donations that way. I do not have
any greater tie in to children's cancer than anyone else, but it seems
like a very worthy cause that effects us all."
