Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

Take the Shot

Nancy was always a little camera shy around me but I got her in front of the camera about a year ago as I was shooting her grand daughter Miya senior photos. I shot a little over 600 shots that day and 8 of them with Nancy, just fun together. She didn't want a photo but I laughed and pushed her into it during the breaks.

Nancy passed away yesterday after a brief illness. These photos are now irreplaceable and precious to her beloved extended family.

Pro tip: Take the shot. Life is short for all of us. And keep track of where you store them!
