Welcome to the World, Baby Parker!

February 07, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Last week I welcomed my first grandson to the world. Baby Parker was just six days old when we took these photos using the gorgeous light that brightens my daughter and son-in-law's apartment in Phoenix. We collected props (blankets, baskets, stuffed toys, etc.) from the nursery, cranked the heat up to 80+ degrees, and took these precious pictures.

Just returned from spending a week in Oregon visiting my daughter and her husband. Grateful that my parents also made the trip. Spending time with family members is such a blessing! Hope these pictures bring a smile to my dad's face on this Father's Day.

Blessed to Be Their Mom: A Dying Mother Shares Her Love

May 21, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The morning I arrived to capture Jeni's story, she had just returned from a chemotherapy treatment, and didn't feel up to being interviewed. "Rest for a few moments, and perhaps you'll feel better," her aunt suggested. I'm grateful Jeni eventually rallied, and we were able to capture her on video for nearly an hour.

In this video clip from that interview, Jeni expresses love for her three children, who faced many challenges as she battled cancer. I was touched by the peace she exuded, and by her confidence that "the Lord will make so much out of their lives." She passed away two months after this interview. Though she is gone, her words will bless her children's lives forever.

 


Preserving the Voices We Love

May 16, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Don't be surprised if you start saving voicemails from your parents or grandparents after you hear Charles Ornstein's NPR story (5:38), "'Kiss Everybody': Voice Mails Live On After Parents Are Gone."  Here are a few lines from his heartwarming story:

I have many treasured memories of my mom, who died two years ago this month. . . .But somehow, oddly, the voice mails — those unscripted moments of everyday life — are the ones I turn to most often.

 

How are you preserving the voices of those you love? 

Enjoying time with my parents on mom's 80th birthday.
