Stop Child Abuse

I have been asked to take some photos for a non-profit organization about abuse.  It will be a series of different kinds of abuse. Today I have had the chance of accomplishing the child abuse side.

Did you know

*That a report of child abuse is reported every 10 seconds
*Almost five children die everyday as a result of child abuse. More than three out of four are under the age of 4
*Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education.
*90% of child sexual abuse victims know the perpetrator in some way; 68% are abused by family members.

Imagine all of the children who are living this life of abuse and have not yet been reported and are still suffering.  Please, lets stop child abuse and save the children of this world.

H & K Bridals and Groomals

Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate.  ~Barnett R. Brickner

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.  ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966
So much fun I had this weekend shooting this couple.  They are just so cute and fun.  Always trying to make the other laugh and just enjoying eachother.  What more is to say, when 2 are in love.

They are always watching

It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself. ~Joyce Maynard

Everything that I do, I do for my children...they are what makes me want to be a better person and I strive for it everyday...

Spring is here? Maybe

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer. ~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

I have been so excited for spring.  The weather was absolutely beautiful and perfect and to my dismay, it snowed again.  I know that it is something to accept and there is nothing that I can do about it, but still one can dream and hope.  The reality is, that spring will come and with that so shall my sandals, shorts, and how I hope it comes sooner then later. 
Happy Spring everyone
