Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind. If we follow the truth, it will bring us out safe at last. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
When did you feel most alive recently? Where were you? What did you smell? What sights and sounds did you experience? Capture that moment on paper and recall that feeling. Then, when it’s time to create something, read your own words to reclaim a sense of being to motivate you to complete a task at hand.

This is my moment. The moment when I feel most alive.
I have a camera in my hand. I have a shoulder bag containing additional lenses, flash and batteries. I’m walking side by side with a couple. We are walking and talking about the couple’s upcoming plans for their wedding. As we walk, my eyes scan the surrounding area. I’m searching for the eye-catching light that will enhance the beauty of the couple. I stop the couple and put them into a pose. I raise my camera to my eye and see the couple through the viewfinder. Settings are set and focus achieved. I slowly squeeze the shutter button capturing the moment.
When I am with a couple I like to be by the water. The photographic possibilities are incredible. The light reflects off of the water’s surface and the sound relaxes me wiping away any amount of anxiety with each receding wave.
My office walls are covered with my favorite photos…reminding me of the time spent with each couple.
