A little over a month ago, we welcomed a daughter into our lives. Maeve Margaret, middle name after my Great Grandmother and Stell’s Great Aunt. She turned one month old the day these were taken in our home, and it’s the first time in a long time I really enjoyed making photographs. Like really enjoyed it. I imagine these are the first of many as I document her life with amazement and wonder.

Sanibel Island


May 21st marked the end of another long semester of nursing school and with summer classes starting less than two weeks after, Stell and I hoped a quick flight down to Sanibel Island in (gulp) Florida to unwind for a few days.  We dodged tropical storm Alberto – muchas gracias for heading out to the gulf amigo – and got a few days of much needed rest.  I only took this one picture the whole time there, primarily to be able to write this post to remind myself that I don’t need to fly endless hours to some foreign land every time I feel the need to travel.  The States has some pretty awesome spots to explore, and this one ranks right up there with the best.
