This morning as I walked across a yard to take a photo of a home I was inspecting, I came upon this scene.
They never seemed terribly afraid of me as I stood (looking/sounding like a fool talking to them) there. Eventually they turned around and walked off into the woods. It just was such a sweet thing to run upon and made my day happy!

What Do I "DO?"
I am a photographer. I capture those moments in your life that make you smile, cry and laugh. I help you remember those tiny features about your newborn, the six month old who is starting to sit, the one year old who can't stand still long enough to get a picture. I help you remember your wedding day -- from the intimate moments to the tiniest details. I capture in print the moment your son or daughter heads off to the their first, or last, prom or formal event. I help you save who your child is as they are a senior starting off to carve their niche in the world. I want o help you remember the birthdays, the anniversaries, the moments that make up life.
Christian, wife, mom and photographer who loves: Jesus, my husband, my son and daughter, my parents, my friends, my church, animals, photography, reading, sports (if my son is playing), saving money with coupons, reality TV and adoption. Dislikes include being late (although I always am), lost keys (they always are), lots of noise, rude people, grits and gravy, lying, work - most of the time (unfortunately this is a necessary evil) and a messy house (but then when is it not?).
