Snapshots of a Good Life –

This is a photo of my brother Jeff and Gina – at a restaurant on the bay near Fort Meyers, Florida.  Really, this post is about the class that helped really solidify my photography skills and knowledge.  Not only did it teach me so much, I have made some wonderful friendships through this class.

So, if you want to take your DSLR out of auto and really see what you can do, sign up for this class – you will be so happy that you did!

Edited to add:  Karen Russell, the instructor/owner of Snapshots of a Good Life – my teacher added a comment on the blog and said my photo was fabulous!  That makes me happy!  I didn’t even say what a wonderful teacher and all-around good person she is – you will love her!


ImageMary Kate turned one year old!  What a special little girl to celebrate a wonderful day!  Her mom (my friend Katie) and her brother, Brandon went right down the street to the Delaware River and tried to capture just how beautiful this family really is.  Katie wasn’t planning on being in the photos but really, I couldn’t leave her out!


Even when she isn’t “photo ready”, she looks beautiful!

Here are a few more of little MaryKate and her family.


I loved our time together.  I hope to someday live in the nursing home right there on the river – it was such a beautiful area!  Then, Katie and I will be neighbors!

Thanks for letting me photograph your family, Katie!

And, while I was there…I had to capture this beautiful yacht club that was in the background.
