Just One  

One song can spark a moment, One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest, One bird can herald spring.


One smile begins a friendship, One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea, One word can frame the goal.

One vote can change a nation, One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness, One laugh will conquer gloom.

One step must start each journey, One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits, One touch can show you care.

One voice can speak with wisdom, One heart can know what's true,

One life can make a difference,
You see, it's up to you!

Art Festival in Philadelphia Philadelphia is a very diverse city with tons of fun. Below are photos from the annual festival held in the Northern Liberties area of the city. Each year artist come to sell their work on the sidewalks. There is food from different countries and everyone is welcome. This is a free event where no one can be called a stranger as you will see from the faces of the many in attendance.

A game of tag with your sister...

Sharing Rita's Water Ice with a friend...

Maybe reading a book while soaking up the sun...

People watching is also fun...

Playing a game of cards with your best friend...

Love In The Park You can never tell... Tell what you make ask? Where will love find you, is my answer. I sent out a call for a model with a male friend to do a shoot with me. I had the idea of doing a shoot with a couple. This green eyed beauty, named Anastasiya, was one of the many that answered. She said she had a friend who would like to do the shoot with her. Little did we know how the day would end...

They have shared a friendship for some time, and didn't know how to tell each other of their growing love.

You could see the love he had for her in his eyes in each shot. It was so romantic the way they spoke to each other. The words I couldn't understand because they were from Europe, but I know love when I see it. LOL

By the end of the shoot they confessed their love and I hope to be the one to photograph the wedding. I'm a romantic at heart, which is why I love shooting weddings, now a match maker too.

So you can never know where LOVE will find you.

Bride's Day Every bride wants a beautiful wedding day. She looks forward to the day. She plans for the day. In her mind's eye, she sees all going as she plans.

The dress fits her like a second skin, molding to her form, flowing around her. She's a walking dream to her future husband. She throws the flowers to her waiting friend. All is as she dreams...

Best friends to the end, all is right with her day...

Or is it? Why is the bride's maid smiling? What is she up to?

Just kidding, they are the best of friends, who put on a wonderful act. All is well, and the bride had her day.

In the beginning In my first days of learning photography, I was blessed to have models that would pose for me at no charge, so I could learn. I met Kristiana on-line. She is a lovely young women, who is now the face of many 50's portraits from Philadelphia to LA. Kristina has a laugh that you can't help but love, and you'll find yourself laughing along with her. I was lucky to find her before she became famous.

In the photos below is Star Winters, a legal professional who like to pose as a way to relax after a week of working in the DA's office. She is the mother of three beautiful daughters, who will grow to be as lovely as their mother. Star is not only beautiful on the outside, she is beautiful on the inside too.

Star has a passion for life that is unbeatable. I am blessed to be able to call her a friend.

To date I have photographed hundreds of models, and I'm happy to say, that I'm close to them all. The famous and the weekend models, who love to come out and play with me.

Devon Horse Show Pt 2 For all ages. Yes that's right, the horse show is for the young and young at heart. As I walked around in awe of all the wonderful sights and sounds, I came across this lovely little girl.

She and Grandpop were having the time of their lives. There were so many things for her to see, but she took the time to smile for me. Before long these guys took her attention away. Who can blame her, I wanted one too.

So I walked on my way to the charms of this lovely. She looks so sad, as if she want to get on a big kids ride.

I wonder if one of these would have made her smile...


This was a day for family.

Young love was all around.

Just a little ice cream to cool down from the sun and walking.

At the end of the day you will be tried, but happy you came.

Devon Horse Show 2012 When I was a little girl, a long time ago, I use to love to write stories. Now in the latter part of my life I find myself picking up the pen... Ouch, I meant keyboard. Showing my age on that one. This is my first blog so bear with me. LOL

Each story will be about my adventures in life. Life is for living and not sitting on the sidelines watching it go by. So to this end, I took a trip to the Devon Horse Show for the first time with my friend Jewel. She is a very funny lady and I love her dearly.

It was a beautiful day, sunny with a warm breeze blowing from time to time. I love to go into places that I'm not to go into and this is where I found this fellow.

He is so beautiful and sweet. He let me rub his soft nose and didn't like it when I turned to talk to one of the other horses. I could have stayed with him all day but there was so much to see. So on to the next adventure...

With each jump my heart jumped too. To watch the little ones on those big babies running and jumping was a thrill a moment.

Oh to be young again and on the back of this baby jumping and flying through the air would be a dream come true.
