Those Eyes!

It’s been said the eye is the lamp to the soul. I don’t know who said it first, but I think it’s true.

Years ago I sat at the bedside of a dear friend who passed away before me. The last few minutes were hard to watch — her body struggling to take-in air. In those remaining minutes, while Lori’s heart strained to beat, she had left. Her soul was gone, and it was evident in her eyes. That twinkle we all talk about had faded. It was gone. The life that we see — like in Grace’s eyes (in this picture) — was completely absent. No twinkle. No Catchlight. The lamp of Lori’s soul had been extinguished.

The lamp of THIS soul burns bright. The sun, the catch-light, reveal Grace’s radiant spirit. Peer closely and gaze upon the hues of blue and green within her retina. Look deeper still and see the love and the life within being.

Your eyes also tell a story about the lamp within you. I hope yours too burns bright and catches the radiance of the sun and light.

Before all the “before’s” pass-by

Life is but like a whiff. One day our children are born, and the next they’re graduating high school.

This has been my reality—twice, and it’s about to happen again. My baby-girl is seventeen, a soon to be senior in high school. Like her big sis — who just graduated and will soon be off to college — she’s begging me to take her senior portraits before it’s too late.

Two portraits already bless our walls. They’re reminders of all the memories and good times we’ve had with our girls. You know, the portraits really aren’t for them; they’re for us. We needed to capture one more moment before any more “before’s” passed-us by. Soon, we’ll begin one more year — our least year — when before we know it the “before’s” will have come-and-go. For us, it’s time to capture our baby, so like her sisters, her portrait can also be hung on the wall.

So… before she whirls off to her last high school dance; before he dons his graduation gown; before all the grad parties have come and gone and they’re packing for new adventures — book their senior portraits before all the “before’s” pass you by! We’re now booking 2020 Seniors. SCHEDULE YOURS TODAY!
