A New Venture

20160716_145158

I have been passionate about photography since I was given my first camera, which was my mom’s old 35mm. For quite some time now, I have been thinking about having a photography business of my own. Capturing lifelong memories is an incredible thing, in my mind. Over time, our memories fade and pictures are one way to revisit and renew them for us.

Well, I finally decided to go for it. I created a Facebook business page for my work, been putting the word out to family and friends on there, and now I am reaching out to my WordPress family! Help me spread the word and get my business going! I want to capture precious moments for as many people as I can.

My mission statement, if you will, is to create lifelong memories and to do it with honor, integrity, and love. I want my heart to show in every picture I take and for everyone who has my work on their walls and in their photo albums to know that they’re more than just clients. Each person I work with will be treated with respect and compassion.

My goal is to be a great photographer, always learning and to be a good mom at the same time. I have a four and a half month old daughter that is my light. I didn’t spend nearly enough time with my son when he was small and I regret that. I want to make sure she has that time and energy. I feel this is a job I can work around my husband’s work schedule most times and also be able to take her with me when I can’t. I want her early years to be full of memories of time spent with me, learning and growing. I also want to do something that will help add income to our household at the same time and feel good about myself and the work I do at the same time.

Thank you in advance for your never ending support. You, my amazing friends and family, inspire me daily to do and become more. Every step forward is partially in thanks to each of you.

My Little Shadow

20160818_163000

My shadow follows me everywhere that I go
Playing with me beneath the sun
We sit by the lake, watching the water flow
Sharing summer secrets, oh what fun

In a language all our own
We talk all the day long
I love seeing how you’ve grown
While we play, nap, learn, and sing songs

***Dedicated to my little shadow***

The Art Within Us All

wallony1oy

His skills with paint are practically legendary

Hours spent in the studio whenever inspiration strikes

Passion flows from his fingertips into each brushstroke

What a gift his hands have, one that a heavy heart carries

 

Can you hear that almost angelic sound?

The music coming from Lady 88’s voice can silence any crowd

Words that only her mind understands flow from the keyboard

As her message reaches out its hand, our souls are found

 

Months have been spent writing, editing, and rewriting

Research and so much raw emotion bleeds through the pages

Set in fiction, but truth is hidden just beneath it all

A secret war within is one he is daily fighting

 

The $50 meal you’re eating smells of love & creativity

Take a picture and tweet about this work of delicious beauty

Did you take any notice to how much went into it?

Such hard work shouldn’t be met with passivity

 

Walking through the hand made arches & decorative halls

You gaze in wonder at the craftsmanship in every square inch

Is this it, the home you’ll choose to raise your family?

The one where your family’s story will adorn the walls

 

Art comes in many forms, even in ways others do not see

From designing cars and clothes & even writing computer programs

It’s all around us, in all we do in our everyday lives

I pay tribute to the artist within each of us, the ones we choose to be

 

Let us not ignore the beauty that surrounds us every single day

There’s so much wonder to create, share, & behold

If we but open our eyes to the world around us

May we let the art in our souls find all willing to look our way

 

Fly High, Lou Lou

original

Sunshine and two piece suits

Music blaring, getting lost in it

I’d braid your hair, you’d do mine

Laughing, singing, and loving life

 

Staying up late, watching movies

Playing exhilarating games of Yahtzee

Talking for hours about anything and everything

You had my back, as I had yours

 

There are days when I come close to calling you

But then I remember you’re gone

You touched my life in inexpressible ways

Your love has left an everlasting mark upon my soul

 

Once my cousin, always my friend

Death doesn’t separate us

A part of you lives within me

I’ll love you until my days come to an end.

 

Aimee Lyn Steinseifer: 11/13/1974 – 05/02/2016

 

Your life was more than just a beginning or an end. You lived all those years in between to their fullest. You’re missed, deeply, every day. ♡

 

 

No Day But Today

tumblr_nj79ftYjQI1rkjrxao1_500

Thinking about the movie, Rent

And though I’ve seen it many times

I’ve only now begun to see what the story meant

It’s about more than catchy songs and rhymes

 

One of the messages it’s sent me

Is that we need to live for today

None of us knows how long we have to be

We’re not promised tomorrow and we’re done with yesterday

 

It’s easy to get hung up on the past

Or worry incessantly about what hasn’t happened yet

But today is a precious gift that’s not meant to last

Sorrow and anxiety threaten to overtake us, but we must learn not to fret

 

Nothing is permanent, not the good or the bad

As hard as it may get, learn from the tough days

And be grateful and enjoy the good we’ve had

Take hold of the now and make the most of the todays.

You Color My World Beautiful

2eca61ae8bce82fbcd8064b453716728

The Red sun rises a top

The Orange tulips and

The Yellow roses while

The Green grass sways in the wind

The Blue sky smiles on you today as

The Indigo dreams dance and

The Violet stranger holds your hand…

 

Dance with me, she sings sweetly

Beneath the trees and fluffy clouds

Feel the rhythm of my love for you

Let it move the stars within you

May they burn brightly for all to see

Beautiful, that is what you are to me

Forever that is what you will be.

 

What My Voice Can’t Say….

638ed14eb462a767f28f6f668be78dae

Darkness Crept In

The lonely heart wept

For the darkness within crept

While happiness slept

 

Part-time Love

You swear you’ll be there

But then you break promises

And fade out of sight

 

Seeking Direction

I look at the map

Trying to find the way home

Feeling blindsided

 

A New Hope

I need a new hope

The old one within has died

Please relight the flame

 

What My Voice Can’t Say

Sorrow grips my lips

The red sea finds me again

Help me find my voice
