This was It Flies By's very first wedding. Nate and I shot it together on his birthday at Pittsburgh's National Aviary. I am thankful for a lot of things. I am thankful for Stephanie and Jasper's trust in my work and my professional eye. Nate and I had scouted out the area in the hours before the ceremony choosing the best places to take pictures. We overlooked some areas that may have seemed the most scenic like a delicate bridge over water, and favored a nook in an iron fance, and a walking bridge over railroad tracks. I am thankful for the chance to witness two wonderful people come together and share with me the moments they have chosen to share with their closest family and friends. I hope this is my first wedding of many more to come. And for Stephanie and Jasper the first day of many more to come. Thank you!

I took the photo above of Remy at Loudon Park National Cemetery on Frederick Rd. on Memorial Day. I like that Remy's downward cast profile mimicks that of the POW/MIA silhouette on the flag that is seen in the background over the wall. After a compliment on the photo from a photographer friend, I decided to enter it in Baltimore Brew's Memorial Day Photo Contest. They were soliciting for photos of "Baltimore kicking off summer". I have those: wading in kiddie pools, ice cream man, Shay watering adolescent sunflowers. But, I still decided that this is what I wanted to enter. Well, today my photo is running on Baltimore Brew's top story in the second runner up position and I couldnt be happier! Thank you Baltimore Brew! See the sory here:

I'm glad they picked the photo. Each day gives me an opportunity to teach my kids something. This is pretty deep of a topic, but here is a look at it in 3 yr old perspective.

"No, Mama, That is WAY TOO MANY for counting."


Then, we went home to the kiddie pool!
