Caught on Film: Single Mama +2


Posted by Picasa

A month or so ago I got a call from my friend, Shelly; sick of hearing about how great she is yet?  Well, she's great!  Shelly has her own photography business and wanted to take some picture of me and the kids.  As a parent, and even more so as a single parent, you don't often get the chance to be in the picture with your kids.  Try when you can to be in the picture, do whatever it takes.  No matter how it turns out, you won't regret it.  In my view, we should remember moments with pictures, not if we had a good hair day.  Although pictures from college don't apply, those the evidence should just as well be burned.

Shelly was once deep in the trenches of single parenthood with her oldest son.  She's lived it, breathed it, knows it.  She's married now to a wonderul man and a proud Mama of three sweet boys.  I admire her so for her determination not to let one moment of life pass her by.  She's a grab the bull by the horns kind of girl, but does it with grace and beauty.  As far as awesome and talented people go, she's pretty much on the top of the list.  Thanks for being in my life Shelly!

{P.S. I'm pretty much giving Peters the highest of recommendations, so if you need some pictures taken, or are getting married or something like that, oh and live in the Minnesota-ish area, you should call her...because I said so.  If she can work with my crew, well then she's pretty much spectacular.}

    And yes, Shelly is the bomb {do people still say that?}, but she is, because she got my 4 year old with Autism, who I can never get a good picture of to smile!!!! Love.Love.Love.
