... because every picture tells a story and every story paints a picture.
I’ve joined up with a group of talented photographers to bring our favorite children’s stories to life. #storytimeloop
📚 This week we are drawing inspiration from Harry Potter 📚
Next up in the loop is the talented @hollynicoletimekeeper

Hints of fall 🍂
We are about two weeks from peak fall colors here and I’m excited to finally use my drone more. Because of the remote landscape, the forests explode with color. Any suggestions for drone photographers out there to follow? Any tips on how NOT to crash a drone?

Sometimes the closest you can get to aviation is a set of pilot goggles and an old tire swing.

On this first day of fall, 7 years ago, I became a mother. Per tradition he’s sporting his autumnal crown for the day.🍂
And thank you. These words hardly seem adequate for how I truly feel in regards to your comments on my last post. The beautiful thing is they will be saved for Leo to read when he’s older. 🎗

This is hard for me. I don’t think I need to explain why. Documenting Leo’s journey has never been easy but it’s not about me. It’s about him and all that he’s overcome.
This was taken just after his diagnosis. He returned home from the hospital and we shaved his head before his hair fell out. What you don’t see is a room full of people surrounding him, supporting him and showering him with love. As his mother part of me hurts seeing this, but a big part of me sees how brave he is. Part of me knows how grateful he will be for these images when he’s an adult. The reality is this was and is part of his childhood, as much as we didn’t want it to be. He lives it and so do many other children. I want him to know that he’s one of the bravest boys I know, but it’s ok to cry and be angry too. He’s always been beautiful to me, even when cancer has threatened to take away his identity.

This is our 🎗story loop.
September is pediatric cancer month. A few of us who have been directly effected by childhood cancer have gotten together to help spread awareness. Pediatric cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease among children. 1 out of 8 children diagnosed will not survive. Please consider going gold this month and tag your images: #teamup4goldkids

My reaction when I find Honeycrisp apples too 🍎
We visited our favorite apple orchard and are going back for more this week. The owner was diagnosed in 2010 with leukemia and after completing treatment developed another form of cancer, which she also beat. They are the kindest ppl and always ask about Leo. It’s wonderful to connect with others even if the circumstances that tie us together are less than ideal.

In other news, one week from today my Mastering Manual class starts! We experiment with slow shutter, learn about aperture and white balance among many other things. This will be my last course of the year before maternity leave! Link in profile.
