Welcome! This is the place I write about Things I Notice in my daily walkabouts as well as what I might think about things in my world.


When I am shooting I often see or feel something a little different than what is natively captured on the sensor. With these two I sensed joy, excitement, faith, family and a sense of awareness about themselves that whispered "old souls" to my mental eye. A photoshoot can be intense, especially for families with little ones. You get to see emotions and reactions and interactions in a very "Reader's Digest"-like condensed version of daily life. They were all a little excited, a little nervous, and very full of life.  And me...well, I had the good fortune to be there on that one hour journey with laughter, tears, hunger, impishness and fun. The shot below has been enhanced...old souls, energetic youth, so much ahead. Joy.John & Lauren
