Land of OZ Invitational

Madison is having so much fun competing this year in gymnastics and we are having a lot of fun watching her as well. There was a lot of stiff competition but she ended up doing really good. She received a medal in all four events and finished 2nd in all around. We are so proud of her and all of her hard work.

Photography and a re-birth

I have recently started a new photography blog and photography business. I am feeling a re-birth. I have always loved taking pictures and used to do it "back in the day" with my Nikon 35mm film camera. Well, a long story later ( that I don't want to get a finger cramp typing about) my love has returned to me in the form of a Canon from my human love Barry. Capturing life's moments is such a beautiful thing and reviewing the pictures during the editing process brings happiness and peace to my soul. The little wrinkles on a babies foot, the messy face of a little one enjoying a snack, the tears of joy when a groom first sees his bride coming down the isle ... I could go on and on... It has really made me slow down to appreciate everything that God has granted me, and for this I am truly thankful.

My website ( www.photographybysarahmarie.com ) will not be published for a few more months but I am currently taking appointments. I can be contacted via email: photosbysarahmarie@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
