About

I'm married to wonderful and supportive man and the mother of two amazing children. Makenzie, who was born in July of 2004 with dark chocolate brown hair and deep dark brown eyes and has a heart of GOLD with the most natural mothering instincts I have ever seen in a child her age. In fact, her mothering instincts and care taker abilities are better than some grown adults I know. She is wise beyond her years and she doesn't even know it. She is sweet, kind and considerate and does it without thinking.

Then we have Gavin... my little boy. Gavin was born in May of 2007 with the blondest hair and ocean blue eyes. He has this amazing way about him that words could never quite do justice. He has a spirit and love for life as though he has lived forever. And his charm... don't get me started. His hands are like magic... he takes his tiny little hands and reaches inside each and every person he meets and…

Then we have Gavin... my little boy. Gavin was born in May of 2007 with the blondest hair and ocean blue eyes. He has this amazing way about him that words could never quite do justice. He has a spirit and love for life as though he has lived forever. And his charm... don't get me started. His hands are like magic... he takes his tiny little hands and reaches inside each and every person he meets and touches their hearts and makes them fall in love with him! Truly.

He also takes those amazing little hands and takes photographs! Which is what brings us here. Gavin lived a normal life like every other child until one day... when he was 18months, his life changed. He had his first seizure. From that moment EVERYTHING changed. He has been diagnosed with a movement disorder and a life altering and then in January of 2012 an incurable Mitochondrial Disease. Gavin's body cannot handle a lot of activity because his body becomes too weak and worn down. So, as his parents we searched for a "hobby". The day he turned his BI-PAP mask into a "pretend camera" I knew in my heart that was going to be HIS HOBBY.

He may not be able to run and play soccer or baseball with his friends like he wants to... but, he can take some beautiful photos. I hope that you agree. You will notice not all of the photo's are in perfect focus! This is because Gavin suffers from very severe hand tremors at times. The photos that are "out of focus" are just as BEAUTIFUL and PERFECT to me as the photos that are in focus.... Enjoy.
