It's been awhile...

 since I posted on here in fact two people have pointed it out that I have not been on here in awhile. Thanks Nana and Wendy.   I could say it was because I was out on some big photo adventure...but I'd be lying.  I could say it was because Shay and I were out building our business...but that too would be a lie. I don't have any excuses as to why other than life has just really gotten in the way.

It's almost been a month since I last posted and so many exciting things have happened.  Our son "graduated" eighth grade. More on that in another post! (I'm still wiping the tears from my eyes!) Our daughter's soccer team had another undefeated season. (Way to go NEYSA Blitz!) I went to two proms...well not really...I actually just shot prom pictures for various friends.  I've attended three different graduations and cried as several of my youth have taken the next step in their young lives.  I had my camera at two of the graduations and took well over 400 pictures between the two events.  The third one was for work and I wasn't able to take pictures as I had several other jobs to attend to before and during the ceremony.

The biggest most exciting thing that happened was that my BFF, Shay and I, decided to pursue our passion for photography and start our own photography business, Sharpe and Hobbs Photography.  If you are looking for someone to capture your life's moments, please let us know.  We'd love to capture the beauty God blessed you with.  You can check out some of our work here.

As another school year is coming to a close I will have more time to explore and capture God's beauty and post on here more often. 

I need to give a special thanks to my very special BFF, Shay for begging me to grab my camera and escape into the great unknown for a little while on Friday. If I hadn't, I would have missed the simple joy of watching a butterfly land on these beautiful flowers.

If I hadn't taken my little fish to the pool for midnight swim Friday evening, I would have missed this breathtaking sunset or hanging out with Wendy.  It's been so long!  I am hoping to have more time to find God's simple pleasures as summer days turn into summer nights. 

Thanks for taking a few moments out of your busy life to read my update!  

Taking time to Focus on Him this week,


  1. We all need a little nudge sometimes...

    Due to your caught the butterfly! Not me :-(

  2. I have missed your posts, your company and your pictures. I love the butterfly!
