One passion I have is helping to support Suicide prevention. It happens too often and hits close to home. I found a fundraiser where you could raise money for this cause. All I have to do is walk 50 miles in the month of March....with a Dog!

Well, I need to start walking more, and I love dogs...but I don't have one. 

I volunteer at ARF so I signed up and will walk dogs from ARF to get my 50 miles in.

I'm off to a slow start but will get those 50 miles in. 13 days in and I have walked 6 different Dogs.

If it's on your heart to support this cause and donate, check out this link...

National Popcorn Day https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2021/1/national-popcorn-day Today is National Popcorn Day! Two of my Reps and I headed to a friend of mine's Popcorn shop in Olmsted Falls to grab a couple shots and of course some amazing popcorn. They were popping Kettle Corn while we were there and the aroma was just heavenly.

My favorite little guy! https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2021/1/my-favorite-little-guy Hi! If you know me, you know that this lil' guy stole my heart a few years back. Meet Aideyn, my great nephew. He'll be 5 in March. For the first 3 1/2 years of his life I watched him once a week to help my niece out and it was the highlight of my week. We played, went on adventures and just hung out. Due to some job changes, I only got to see him twice a month and then covid hit and it was no longer a weekly or bi-monthly visit. Any chance I get, I love hanging out with him...he's so smart and funny and just cracks me up with the things he comes up with. His Papa (my brother-in-law) had a birthday yesterday so we all went to lunch.  Some of his favorite things now are Spiderman, fishing, trucks, construction stuff, helping papa and grandma in the yard, riding his 4 wheeler and playing trains!

Happy New Year! https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2021/1/happy-new-year Hello Friends! It's a new year...2021...and I'm excited to start fresh.

As I reflect on 2020, I don't think it was a huge mess like most do. Yes, it did come with challenges. Was it a complete failure? No! I think we can all look back and find one nugget that we are grateful for, one thing that made us smile. as in any year, that's worth it. I have several...

As I look back, I remember it being the first year I attended a photography conference that changed the way I did things in my business and met some pretty great people in the same place I was in.

I had time with my boys that I would never would have had if Covid didn't invade. We had family dinners (and lunches), lots of game nights, movie afternoons and a ton of time just hanging out and talking. I would not trade that for anything.

We had quiet evenings, a few outings with the same two couples, and really enjoyed the Smallness of it all!

I did some amazing things with an adventure group, all the while playing it safe, wearing our masks and keeping our distance while enjoying some things I never would have done. Kayaking, touring the Mansfield reformatory, glass blowing, painting/ staining on wood, making homemade gifts.

I cooked more, created new recipes and actually baked a few times.

I worked on my business, started a Senior Rep team, which was the highlight of my business year! I bonded with some great kids

Were there things I couldn't do? Yes, but focusing on that is what brings you down. I choose to focus on the good. 

I encourage you to do the same....what new things did you do in 2020? What things do you want to do in 2021? Please share I would love to hear all about it.

Here are some sessions from 2020. Enjoy!

I've been trying to work on my blogging, I'm horrible at it, I admit it! I made a goal last year to blog more, and I'm not blaming Covid, it seems we all blame Covid for everything we didn't do this year, it's simply not true. I have had a lot of time to work on things, think about things and make a dent in my long list of things to do....I just chose not to blog.  

I'm not a fan of making New Years resolutions....I'm all in for a good 30 days and then it fizzles out. What works for me is making goals that I can work toward. I'm working on my list now and will share my 2021 goals with you next week.

I can’t take credit for this idea, but I’ve been wanting to do something for Seniors to show my love and a fellow Photographer in Indiana had an awesome challenge for seniors in her area. There are photographers all over following her lead, each putting their own spin on it.

Make sure you tune in to my Instagram tomorrow for the Hazel Eyes Challenge that will start on Sunday. You won’t want to miss out…PS – this won’t cost you a thing!


Everyone has been practicing social distancing and staying close to home surrounded by just our immediate family, and it gets a little boring at times. I’m challenging you to do something fun every day for 14 days.

Starting tomorrow, Sunday March 29th and each day for the next 14 days I will post a photo challenge, nothing crazy, but something to get you thinking and using your creativity. If you post and tag me in your stories/post every day you can win your choice of one of three mini sessions:

Best Friends session;

cap & gown session; or

Prom dress/tux session

(you will receive digital copies of all pic’s taken and not owe any payment for this)

This challenge is open to any high school students only. Also, you do not have to be a current client (or senior) to win!

I’m excited to see what you guys come up with to share. Please make sure you check out my story highlight for complete details.

Also, so it’s fair for everyone, please post a new image you take on the day of the prompt and let me know if you have any questions.


               TO WIN the following must be completed

  1. Prompts will be sent out each morning by 7am
  2. Take a photo using prompt for the day & add to your story by midnight
  3. Add in comment #hazeleyesphotochallenge
  4. Tag @hazeleyes13

  3. Prom Mini Session

Mini-Sessions are 20 minutes, scheduled on a date and location TBD.

Preparing for a Senior Shoot https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2018/7/preparing-for-a-senior-shoot How should you prepare for your Senior shoot? 

First you want to pick your day.  Check out my website for available dates. Once that is scheduled, you can relax.  

Shop for a new outfit or wear something you already have and love! It doesn’t have to be extravagant, unless you want it to be.

      Girls: get your hair done, get your nails done, and pamper yourself!!! One recommendation - please, don’t overdo it. Less is More!!!  I don’t recommend wearing Heavy make-up, especially when you don’t wear a lot normally. It will make you look “not like you” and very un-natural.

      Guys: get your hair/facial hair trimmed so that the day of the shoot, it's at the length you want it. 


Check out Pinterest for pose idea’s. I have tons, but if there is something you see that you want to try, bring it along and show me.

On the day of the shoot relax, make sure you eat, stay hydrated, and show up ready to strut your stuff! We are going to have fun.

Choosing a Photographer https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2018/7/choosing-a-photographer

What kind of photographer should you choose?  

When considering a photographer, you are probably at a point where you are wanting to capture a special milestone or a time to cherish. You know that just a point and shoot photo session is not going to work. Who you choose should be carefully thought about. Here are some questions to ask yourself:

What are your needs?

Why do you want your photograph taken?

What would you do with the prints?

If you value Art and Photography, you are going to want this Photographic Art hung in your home from a talented professional for everyone to see! 

As a photographer, I truly value the Art of it. I want to create lasting memories, and moments in time to cherish forever. I feel art should be displayed for loved ones to see and enjoy for a lifetime. My work is important to me and I love doing it. I get so much joy out of meeting my clients, talking about their passions and what is going on their lives. A lot of times when you look at a piece of Art (in this case, a portrait) hanging on your wall, you often think about the moments that surrounded the taking of that particular photograph, you think about how you felt, the emotions, the laughter and the joy.

If Art is not something you value, and what you’re looking for is a quick shoot with digital copies, then I am not the photographer for you…there are so many out there that just do digital, and here are a couple thoughts: What will you do with the digital copies you get? Will you ever take them anywhere to get prints made? What will the quality be like?

You definitely want to pick someone you feel comfortable being around, someone you can spend an hour or two with and someone who will help you to feel relaxed. Because I love what I do, I make sure everyone is comfortable. I will never make a client do something or pose a certain way if they are not comfortable.

Patience is one quality I have and I absolutely love kids!!! With family shoots, sometimes it takes a while to get the shots you want, and that's okay, I will take as long as needed so that the kiddos are warmed up and relaxed. Sometimes waiting creates the best portraits!


Here are some tips to finding and choosing the best photographer for your special occasion:

Word of mouth - ask around, check with your friends. Just because someone has an amazing photo on their wall doesn't mean the experience was great...find out...how was the actual experience? How were the prices and was the photographer good with kids?

Price check - Professional photographers usually give prices up front and don't hide them. There should be no surprises. Keep in mind though, you are not just paying for ink printed on paper, you are paying for talent and experience.

Check their website - See that you like their work and they will supply what you want. What do you want to be holding in your hands? Do they offer prints as well as canvas, metal, and acrylic? Do they just offer digital copies?

Wrapping up.... when you are making a decision to get pictures taken, spend a few minutes to think about what your needs are and what your looking for.

Up next - preparing for a senior shoot!

I appreciate you stopping by

Blessings & Joy!

What kind of Photographer am I? https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2018/7/what-kind-of-photographer-am-i

What kind of Photographer am I?

I have found that there are two types of photographers, well three if you count everyone who owns a phone and takes pictures. Anyway, photographers who take pictures as a career, hobby or side job fall into one of two categories….a Boutique photographer OR a Shoot & Burn photographer. I always get this question: Can I just get digital copies?

Unfortunately I do not sell digital copies. I consider myself to be a Boutique photographer. I want to create something you will cherish. I trust my printing partners and the quality they provide is outstanding. I want to provide quality service to my clients from our first contact until the moment you hang that wall portrait in your home.

There are Shoot & Burn photographers out there who will have a session and then just give you a flash drive or CD of all the digital prints, but I’m not one of them.  I can’t guarantee the quality of your prints if you take them to just any local store that prints photographs. Plus, I often think…will the flash drive ever make it out of the drawer you placed it in? Will you ever actually enjoy the memories that are meant to be cherished for a lifetime? I want you to, that is my passion!

With every order, I do give my clients a jpeg(s) (Digital copies) that they can use for sharing or making invitations. We can discuss this in our consultation.

From here, you need to ask yourself....what kind of photographer are you looking for?

Happy New Year https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2018/1/happy-new-year Hello!

2017 was a great year for me and the business, I almost doubled my shoots and met some really amazing people.

2018 is going to be awesome!!! I'm in the process of streamlining so that I can really spend quality time with my clients, and my family.  You can now book your initial free consultation, your actual session and your photo reveal session online. No more phone tag or texting back and forth 13 times.  I also now have an electronic business card so I will always have it with me! That is huge for me! I seem to change my bag, purse or wallet frequently and never seem to have cards on me. Now, I can send it to your phone and you will always have it and you can share with your friends!

I want to blog more, that has always been a struggle, so I'm hoping for at least once a week to start.

Thanks for stopping by

Blessings & Joy,

Happy New Year 2016 https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2016/1/happy-new-year-2016 Happy New year everyone!

I have so many shoots to post from last year and I need to get better at posting them sooner. One of my three goals for 2016: get organized. I'm coming up with some new things for 2016, things that will help me organize myself better, get to know my clients better and make team shoots easier for myself and the parents. A new on-line form will be available for completion as well as the ability to complete it from my lap-top on the day of the shoot. So exciting! Welcome 2016!!!

Resolutions for the new year https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2015/1/resolutions-for-the-new-year Happy New Year!!!

2015 is going to be an awesome year! I challenge you to get out and do something you LOVE. An amazing photographer that I recently started to follow, Jenna Martin, posted 10 resolutions on her blog for the new year and I'm going to step it up and create some of my own (and use a couple of hers)
1. Be true to myself and my style
2. Not compromise
3. Seek useful critique (one of Jenna's)
4. Create "different" team photo shots
5. Organize so I'm spending less time on the PC & more time with my family
6. Start some kind of photo journal blog (weekly maybe)
7. Shoot personal projects (my favorite one of Jenna's)
8. Keep clients on schedule and not allow myself to be taken advantage of
9. Get to know other Photographers (part mine, part Jenna's)
10. Create a warm inviting space to meet with clients


With Goal #6 in mind January's focus will be of course WINTER one of my favorite things, and the colors of white, blue and silver.

New Pricing Structure https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2014/11/new-pricing-structure Hello everyone!

I'm so excited to announce that starting in 2015 I'm tossing the "package" philosophy and creating a new pricing structure that allows my clients to choose what they want and how much they want to spend. This will allow YOU the customer the ability to choose the sizes and prints you want and not the ones I have in a package. Look for my pricing page to be updated by mid - December.


* Please note - if you already committed to a shoot, you can choose if you want to stay with the current packages and prices or apply the new pricing to your shoot!


Thank you!

Baseball and Photoshop https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2014/5/baseball-and-photoshop I started a Photoshop class, which I love (more than I thought I would)! I don't really like photo-shopping all my photographs; however, it will come in handy to make some needed adjustments or for fun shots. My favorite thing is to create a pop in color within a B&W photo. Here is my son Nick, hanging back before his "at bat" during a game. Love these types of shots!

Happy St. Patricks Day! https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2014/3/happy-st-patricks-day This picture is on my slide show, but I have never show cased it on my blog. Meet Colton, a very charming young man! This was a spontaneous photo taken, which I still believe is the best way to capture great expressions. I changed to black and white and Colton's mom and my friend photo-shopped the clover green and his eyes blue. What an awesome end result and one of my fav's!

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!!!

Welcome 2014 https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2014/1/welcome-2014 Happy New Year!

With a new year comes new goals, resolutions, tasks and challenges. For me, I'm hoping 2014 will be filled with more shoots and new styles. My goals are to dig into my creative side and create some awesome portfolio's, work with different lighting scenario's and purchase a better lens for Football season so I can get even better action shots. I also would love to blog more!

I've been laid up for three weeks now after ankle surgery and have about another three-five weeks to go. Although I can't go out and do any shoots, I'm doing research, attending webinars and reading a lot to improve myself. I'm excited because these are the things I usually do not have time to sit down and accomplish.

My personal goal I decided on after reading a facebook post from a group I really like called Sanctus Real. I want to find value in things that I don't like, and I want to encourage when my instinct tells me to criticize.

Hope you have an awesome 2014!

7th Grade Undefeated Raiders https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2013/11/7th-grade-undefeated-raiders This is my sons 7th grade team at their last game. They had an undefeated season- AMAZING boys who played awesome together!

I asked them to get together for a team picture and within 20 seconds, we had this...but we were at an opposing field so my talented friend, Debi did her magic and created a backdrop and this is the final result. I love it!!!

Maternity https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2013/8/maternity I'm fascinated with the miracle of birth and wish when I was pregnant, I would have documented the progress of a beautiful life growing within me. I see maternity pictures now and think "how awesome", it would be great to have those memories...can't get them back, right? They didn't take maternity pictures then like they do now and TAKING maternity pictures was not something I thought I would ever do; however, I follow a few photographers who do and really enjoy the moments they catch. Ironically, I was asked recently to do a maternity shoot and took the challenge. My sister gave my name to a friend of hers so I met Joelle and Larry at the park and 461 pictures later....LOVED it. They were a blast and what I enjoyed the most was capturing their emotions, their love and the love they already have for baby Boston who is due to arrive in the beginning of September. Meet Joelle and Larry...more pictures to come.

Photography Weekend https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2013/3/photography-weekend I just spent this past weekend at an amazing workshop/conference hosted by RMSP (Rocky Mountain School of Photography). It was two days packed with amazing classes and instruction. I learned A LOT and now I feel like I'm ready to take on the world behind my lens. I have some things stirring and can't wait to share them!

Remembering the kids from Newtown https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2013/2/remembering-the-kids-from-newtown This past weekend I was able to take part in an amazing event. St. Martins in Valley City partnered with a church in Newtown and about 50 ladies made memory scrapbooks for the siblings of the children who tragically lost their lives on December 14, 2012.  If we wanted to we could pick a child so I picked Daniel. I created a book for his brother James. Daniel was an amazing young man with a huge zest for life, he loved to surf the waves, play soccer, make s’mores with his cousins and he played drums in his family band. Daniel wanted to be like his uncles and when he grew up he wanted to be a fireman. I have never met Daniel or his family, but they will always be a part of my heart now and I think about them a lot. It was so awesome to be part of this event and I hope these books that they will add pictures to will help them create a lifetime of memories of a precious life taken way too soon. I took pictures of some of the pages I created. It actually made me miss scrap booking a little, it’s been quite a while since I took the time to sit and work on my kids’ books.

This is the book all the siblings are getting

These are two of the pages I created

I left the event with Daniels book as I wanted to take it home and add some finishing touches. On my way out I had asked if all the siblings had someone making them a book. There was one little girl, an only child, who needed someone to make a book for her parents. I took that home with me as well. I’m not sure what I’m going to do, I have two boys and no experience with creating books for girls, but I want her parents to have a book of lasting memories.

Sports Sunday https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2013/1/sports-sunday It's been a while since I posted, lots going on, plus have not been feeling great. My son has been sick on and off for weeks and it finally caught up to me last week. Anyway, this past weekend, I did the Basketball league...it was a blast! All the kids were great and very cooperative. Here are a couple individual pictures...let me know your thoughts.



All the kids chose their own poses, which made it an easy day. Even when it came time to take the team pictures, everyone got into place and the shoot went smoothly. Now the hard part...picking each picture to order and sending the order through. Can't wait to share more of the shoot with you!

Sister Sunday https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2013/1/sister-sunday Here are some shots from the "Sister Shoot" that I did in the fall. I actually took about 500 total pictures. I picked about 60 for my portfolio, and still have some single shots of the girls that I would like to post...maybe next weekend.

From left to right: Jessie, Mia, Allie, Gracie and Jillian


Anyway, I'm very pleased with the results. I had such a great time shooting these amazing young ladies and spending the afternoon with them. I have two boys...so spending a day with girls was really different. What an adventurous day! They were a great group of girls and made me smile all day!

I hope you enjoy this shoot.






































To see all 60 shots, visit the Sister Shoot portfolio on the website and let me know your thoughts.

Strep Sunday https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2013/1/strep-sunday Well we made it through the entire Christmas / New Year season healthy and free of germs except a slight cough my oldest son, Nick had. Now, when they are supposed to go back to school, strep...both boys! I feel quarantined and just want to open all my windows and air out the house. Washing everything and keeping tons of Purell on hand. Nick missed his basket ball game today and I really missed being there to take pictures, fortunately my friend Pam was there to catch the shots.

Being home all day gave me an unexpected afternoon with no plans. I decided to take the time and go through all my photography things and I organized everything...created forms, price pages, jotted new idea's and went through a bunch of pictures. This is so exciting I can hardly stand it! I came up with some really great idea's for some portfolio samples and I can't wait to go out and start shooting. I also can't wait to share them with you.

My next adventure is taking team pictures for our Youth Basketball league...ten teams - 7-10 players on each team. This is huge for me, and I'm so excited. I'm calling in some favors from three amazing ladies to help me out so that the day runs smoothly. My sister, Jennifer who takes pictures as a hobby and is amazing! My BFF, Pam and my bowling partner and friend, Jen who also takes amazing pictures. Wish me luck!

Thankful Thursday-just words https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2013/1/thankful-thursday I’m so thankful for my family and friends today. I made my announcement yesterday and I was very excited and at the same time nervous as heck. I have received so many positive emails and feedback….I have not stopped smiling! And….I have my first guestbook entries on my site which totally made my day! You are the reason I will succeed, You are the reason I will keep moving and venture on this path, this journey, this adventure of faith! There are so many people in my life that have picked me up when I have fallen and this adventure is no different….there will be bumps, curves, narrow paths and forks in the road. Without supportive people surrounding you, you may just sit and never move ahead. I decided to move ahead and a lot of that had to do with people in my life who nudged me to do so.


My Family

Cousin Sylvia was actually my first inspiration to do something great with this talent when we connected on Facebook a couple years ago. She also does photography and is amazing! She is a great mentor and will always be someone I will look up to. Even though miles separate us, technology allows us to connect and stay in touch.

Sylvio, my amazing husband who has always supported my passion for wanting to move from just taking snapshots to capturing memories.

Nick & Vince, my sons who move me! They take an interest in my passion, which is so cool. Nick tells me I should never go anywhere without my camera and Vince is always finding the beauty in everything so it can be captured by film (or memory card).

My Friends

Sandy, a writer in her spare time, has always inspired me to take my passion to the next level. Sandy was a huge help to me when creating my brochures and helped me with writing the message inside. She has great faith in me and I cherish our many talks over Starbucks coffee exchanging stories of our kids, photography and writing. One day, we will share an article in a newspaper or magazine.

Pam who always supports me and has walked with me on this journey through thick and thin. She keeps me a float and is always encouraging me to keep moving, to reach higher and never give up. Pam also started delving in Photography and is amazing, together we have taken pictures for our baseball, basketball and football leagues and created team websites for the parents.

Debi, a graphic artist who is so inspiring to me. Debi created my logo, which I absolutely love!!! She also helps me when I need to Photoshop something since I just can’t seem to get the hang of it completely. Dream Big is something she tells me. Debi is a huge motivator to me.

Julie, my lifestyle coach who has been helping me clear my plate of unnecessary things and focus on my family and what I love to do...photography!

I have also been influenced by my nieces, who encourage me and always bring a smile to my face.

Thank you all again for sharing in this journey with me!

Snowy Sunday https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/12/snowy-sunday Wow! These past few days have been awesome...I just love the snow! My friend, Diane and I took our boys sleddin' and they had so much fun...I had fun watching all the kids smiles as they came to the bottom of the hill...such joy!


















I could just sit out there all day and stare at the tree's and how the snow is so delicately placed on the branches...Pine tree's amaze me, huge amounts of snow just piled on them and as soon as the snow melts, the branches bounce right back.

I hope to have many many more snowy pictures to share, this is my favorite time of year (besides football season).

Thankful Thursday 12.27.2012 https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/12/thankful-thursday-12-27-2012 Today, after a relaxing Christmas, I’m thankful for so many things: I have an amazing family, I’m healthy, I have love, laughter and peace.

One thing that always makes me smile are my nieces. I treasure them so very much and on Christmas Eve I enjoyed their company catching up on what’s going on in their lives. They are all unique and beautiful and hold a special place in my heart.

Back Row: Carli, Mandi, Mallory & Alysse

Front Row: Courtney & Anna

In Dayton & Colorado: Katie & Sarah

Right off the top of my head I can think of three things about them that inspire me: Their hearts, their zest for life and how they love their family and friends. Some of them live across the miles, but really, there is no distance between them- they stay in touch and always take the time to get together when they are “home”. I admire them. I respect them. I love and cherish them. I’m so thankful for these amazing young ladies.

Merry Christmas! https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/12/merry-christmas Merry Christmas everyone! I love this day, the birth of our Lord and Savior. I make it a point to make sure that today I think about that first and foremost...afterall, it is what today is about.

I will put away my selfish thoughts, my to do list, and any distractions. My pastor talked about not watching the news for the few days before and during Christmas....what a great idea! I'm not a TV watcher anyway, but thought this concept was awesome. Keep the joy of what the season is about within you and "catch up" when Christmas is over.

Merry Christmas and many blessings for a Peaceful New Year.

Social Sunday https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/12/social-sunday I officially am ready for Christmas, presents bought, wrapped and house cleaned...just relaxed and hung out with my family...and happen to run into my BFF at McDonalds of all places at lunch time. It was so nice to just sit and not have anything to do, anywhere to rush off to!

My oldest son, Nick invited a bunch of his friends to a Free concert at our church put on by the youth band, which happens to be amazing! They joined us at our home for pizza and then we headed out. It was an amazing evening with friends, laughs and uplifting music to get our hearts ready for Christmas. Chad May - an amazing singer & Musician.









Maria, 19 year old singer - AMAZING voice!

Thankful Thursday-Christmas https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/12/thankful-thursday-christmas Thankful Thursday

Today I’m thankful for the word Christmas.

It’s what it is!

It’s what it means!

It’s what it stands for!

It’s not about rushing, running or even over shopping.

I love buying gifts for others, especially when I can spend some time and pick out something that represents their personality, their character, their quality. It usually takes me days to find something and I don’t succeed every time, but for the most part I get it right.

Today I was shopping and a young man in JCP told me to have a Merry Christmas! I was so excited, it made my day. I made a point to tell him that I was so happy he said that and I told him he made my day. He said to me “It is Christmas”.

Yes, yes it is!

And to all of you…Merry Christmas!

Basketball is underway! https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/12/Basketball Basketball season has now started and I have been asked to take the league pictures. I'm so excited and a little bit nervous. There are only ten teams so it should not be too over whelming, but will be a challenge! I'm so excited!!! After my son's game we stayed and watched the girls game. I still need to work on basketball action shots, but these came out pretty good. My goal is to catch the expressions, the contact with the ball and the excitement of the game.





I love the basket shots too

Somber Sunday https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/12/somber-sunday I just don't have the words for how I feel today, such tragedy! My belief is that Evil caused this, and I refuse to focus on the doer. My prayers and thoughts go out to all the families involved and all the hero's who saved their "kids" from the path of evil. I was reading articles on the families and Morgan Freeman said it best...we (the media) treat these shooters like celebrities instead of ignoring them and just turning off the TV and remembering the victims and their families. I would like to thank Victoria , now in heaven. She died a hero today. She is the teacher that hid her first graders in the cabinets and closets after hearing the gunfire. When the shooter came to her classroom, she told him that her students were in the gym. He then gunned her down and moved on. She saved the lives of all of her students. She deserves to be remembered for her bravery.

Thankful Thursday 12.13.2012 https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/12/thankful-thursday-12-13-2012 Today I'm so thankful for music. Music can really make your day better and can be so soothing! This morning, I heard a song by Amy Grant called I Need a Silent Night. It's all about how we all just rush around this time of year and basically miss the peace. I really listened to the words and realized we can all get caught up in the December rush of shopping, traffic, cooking, cleaning and how often do we get to just sit in peace and have a silent night? Then when it's all over, we have missed it- the joy, the true meaning of it all and the peace.

Tonight my son, Nick had his 6th grade Band Christmas concert, I loved listening to the music and just sit there enjoying our friends around us and listening to the kids play their hearts out.
















Tomorrow night I'm attending my church's Christmas concert, opening night and I will enjoy some awesome music with great friends. This year my goal is to avoid the hustle and bustle and have a few silent nights.

Santa Hats https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/11/santa-hats Santa hats make great pictures, by them selves or on your kids...even on the dog! Here are my three boys, Maverick-age 12 1/2,

Nick-age 11, and Vince-age 9. They make me smile :)

This year, I'm trying to think of some unique idea's for family pictures, something different, unusual, creative. Hopefully I'll get them done before cards are ready to go out...last year, I never sent any, totally missed the deadline. I almost think I'm going to just start sending Happy New Year cards!

It's Officially Christmas Season https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/11/officially-christmas-season Thanksgiving was amazing and I spent four days with family and friends celebrating the season. We ate, shared stories, saw three movies, and laughed and laughed. I did not partake in the craziness of black Friday. Before kids and when they were babies I used to be one of those crazy shoppers who would map out my plan of attack the night before, get up at 4am, stop for coffee and head to my first store, that was until one year, when I was almost trampled by a mob of women for fisher price toys. Are you kidding? I realized right then, this is not worth it! And, as my experience has proved, the sales actually get better the closer to Christmas you get. I don't miss it at all, and enjoy the quality time I get with my husband and boys...and sleeping in on Friday. Personally I think most people (not all, but most) just go to be part of the crowd, part of the craziness, part of the madness, and maybe to get on TV. Anyway, now the house gets decorated and we prepare for over 30 days of more quality time with family and friends.

One new tradition we started was going up to our township park and celebrate the festival of lights. The president of our chamber of commerce speaks, Santa arrives, Pastor Gary says a prayer and then the tree's get lit up for the season. The community comes together for hot chocolate and some light snacks and cookies...there is no celebration this time of year that does not include cookies.











I hope you all have a blessed Christmas season and remember to share every moment with those you love. Keep your traditions, make new traditions and memories and always be thankful for what you have.

Thanksgiving 2012 https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/11/thanksgiving-2012 Thankful Thursday, and what a beautiful day it is today. As the sun was setting last night...

I realized , again, how awesome God's creations are. Anywhere you look there is beauty and within the beauty there is thanks. I for one love tree's so anything with tree's in it I find absolutely breathtaking sometimes, and I find myself just stopping and watching, staring, getting lost in nature.












Today I'm thankful for a beautiful 62 degree day in November. As a family we went to church this morning, followed by a nice walk in the park, great cappuccino from sheetz gas station and good conversations with my boys. I baked some brownies and finished up sweet potato casserole that we will be taking to my amazing brother and sister-in-laws house where we will relax and spend time with family.

My heart is a little sad though, Kevin and Sarah are in Colorado and were unable to come home. They are having Thanksgiving with friends and I'm thankful they have met some great people in a new place with no family. I miss them but also know they are on a journey and although I'm not much of a tech savvy gal, I love technology that allows us to stay in touch.







I wish you all a very blessed thanksgiving and hope that we all take a few moments to remember what we are thankful for. It is also a great idea to thank each person sitting around our table and tell them one thing you are love about them! It's good for the soul. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Sisters2 https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/11/sisters2

Well the shoot was a success and I had fun doing it! I spent a lot more time out there with these girls than I had anticipated, and let me tell you...three hours with 5 girls is SO MUCH different than 3 hours with 5 boys! Love the girls, but would take a day with boys in a heartbeat...although boys don't photograph as well as girls do! I will be putting all the shots up soon in my portfolio but a sneak peak of the first shot is here below. Tell me what you think...

Sisters https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/11/sisters I have this great idea for a photo shoot "SISTERS".

I have a sister and she is an amazing friend. I love having a sister, especially one that I could share clothes with, share stories, laughs, tears and best of all, childhood memories. Funny thing is that when I was ready to start planning a family I wanted all boys, which is what God blessed me with. Here are some quotes I found on sisters, and when the pictures are ready from the shoot, I will share them with you.


Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of.  You know whatever you do, they'll still be there.  ~Amy Li

A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.  ~Marion C. Garretty

Autumn https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/11/autumn Autumn is such an amazing time, the tree's are changing, the weather gets cooler (which I love) and now that Halloween is officially over, it's time for Thanksgiving plans. My absolute favorite holiday, a very relaxing time where you can enjoy family and friends and reflect on all the things your thankful for. It's also the best time for pictures - cool air, no direct sunlight, beautiful colors in the background, except this year Storm Sandi ripped almost all the leaves from the trees earlier than usual.

Football https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/10/football

I have to say football is my favorite!!! Here is my son taking out the quarterback after two of his teammates missed and this guy thought he had a touch down in his future...Nick comes out of nowhere!

Thankful Thursday Family https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/7/thankful-thursday-family Wow, it's been a while...baseball has consumed my time the past few weeks, but I love watching my boys play! In two days one of my awesome nephew's, Kevin is getting married to his sweetheart from middle school, Sarah. I'm so excited for them as they get ready to continue their journey and start a new chapter in their lives. I'm so blessed to have an amazing family.

Communion Photo Shoot https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/5/communion-photo-shoot

Today, I did something new, a first Communion shoot. Eleven kids and a class shot. It was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it!

Thankful Thursday May 3rd https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/5/thankful-thursday-may-3rd I'm so thankful for tree's! One of the things I have loved since I was little. I used to talk to the tree's, still do. Being in God's great creation hanging out with him is awesome. Today, with baseball starting, school almost ending, there are so many "things" to do, but sitting by a tree and taking comfort in the few moments of calmness I get in life, I'm loving it!

Thankful Thursday April 19th https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/4/thankful-thursday-april-19th I'm so thankful for my boys, they amaze me. This past week my 10 year old overcame some negative comments and opinions about a new student. Not only that, but he rose above and talked to the student and when he came home, he said "mom, he's really nice". You just have to get to know people and not listen to others opinions. How awesome is that!

Thankful Thursday-Holy Week https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/4/thankful-thursday-holy-week

I'm borrowing an idea so many bloggers and radio stations do...Thankful Thursdays. I have so much to be thankful for. This week, I'm thankful for the cross and what God sacrificed for us. My wish for you is peace and comfort during the three amazing days ahead of us.

Basketball https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/3/basketball So here is the 2011-2012 basketball team. Love the attitudes! When kids play sports and then have a team picture taken, they should not be sitting in a row smiling, my opinion. The picture should portray what they're feeling when they play...concentration, attitude, determination, drive... although I have not mastered what my full potential is yet, I'm well on my way to creating different, unique team pictures. I'd love the floor to be in color and maybe their green shirts. Any thoughts?

New idea https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/3/new-idea I took this picture of my sons scout den to give to the parents. I wanted it to be different and I love it! I went a step further and hired a graphic designer (Stephen Toth) to Photoshop it for me so it was B&W with just their Cub shirts blue. AMAZING! Now I'm thinking I would love to do "team" pictures that are a little more than ordinary. I'm working on one for my sons basketball team...can't wait.

beginnings https://www.myhazeleyes.com/blog/2012/3/beginnings I'm not even sure I know what I'm doing but wanted to try blogging about my experiences. You can read the "about me" page to find out who I am. My company started forming last fall (2011) and was official by the end of the year. I still have a lot to do and work on, but learning as I go. I'm very serious about this passion and plan to make my dreams come true. I have an awesome support system (hubby) and two kids who share my passion.

To date I have done a few senior picture photo shoots, families, and a preschool. I have a 1st communion shoot coming up which will be really cool.  My dream is to continue with my passion of taking pictures while working on selling photo's such as scenery, animals, landscapes and sky-lines. Ultimately I would love to maybe delve into sports photography, mainly football.

I have no interest in doing weddings (at least not now)

These are two of my favorite "beginning" pictures. Kevin, my nephew and his fiance' Sarah sharing a quiet moment during their engagement photo shoot. It's always the non-posed ones that capture me the most. Then there is Gracie! She is this awesome little girl. Her brother plays football with my son, Nick. Gracie is very photogenic and full of energy!
