I’m feeling nostalgic this morning and have been spending the last hour looking through photos of our girls from the past few years. I am grateful that I’ve captured so many images of the girls at school, in sports, with their cousins, and especially in the normal everyday moments of their lives.
I connected with this photo today, just as I did with our daughter in the moment I took this photo more than three years ago.
Photographing our Christmas tree from new perspectives creates magical results.

I loved the reflections of city buildings, light, and passersby on the black paint of this 1969 Shelby GT-500.
It amazes me how much color can be reflected off of black paint!
In looking for a new way to photograph our girls drawing together, I noticed their reflection in a picture frame across the room. I love the result!
Beauty can be found in unlikely locations; I discovered this reflection in a puddle at the parking lot of our local grocery store.
With my camera at my side, I set out for downtown, hoping to find a vintage car or two to photograph. As luck would have it, I came across a 1950 Ford F1 truck (parked in perfect light!) and began photographing the details.
I soon noticed incredible reflections of color and
was surprised at how clearly the details of my surroundings seemed to jump right off of the black paint of the truck.
I heard a car coming, stepped aside, and continued to admire the reflections. Through my viewfinder, I watched a new reflection move up the side of the truck. A new reflection, which provided me with more to admire
and to focus on.
Another vintage Ford (from the 1930s) parked right next to me!
While taking photos for a project titled, “Up,” my daughter and I found our reflections.
