I have some good things to share, but…oof…let me drag ye olde SOAPBOX out of the closet (heh, pun fully intended) so I can heft myself atop it with my mighty megaphone. Last week a colleague pointed out a fellow “photographer” who apparently decided: “Let’s see what Lisa has in her shop and copy it.” […]

In case you missed my post on Facebook: This is my Mom’s beloved dog Bleu. She is the sweetest, most loving dog I’ve ever met. When my Mom first rescued her she was a hyper mess, but after years of love and training she’s calm, happy and perfect. She adores my children and I contemplate […]

  • Mom - This was the scariest thing I ever went thru, except the time you drank the cough syrup!!!!
    I wish I could keep the kids here in NY so Bleu would be happier, she was so sad when you left.
    Thankfully, just like you, she has recovered and can catch her dog bones again.ReplyCancel

I didn’t grow up with a Christmas village. While a fan of the holiday, collecting wasn’t really my Mom’s THING. My Nana Frear had a little church that lit up (and always prompted a game or 20 of ‘Here’s the Church, here’s the steeple, open the doors and see all the people!’) but that wasn’t […]

  • Elizabeth - I love Kelli! I’m hoping to get over to ATL area to see her before we move out of Alabama.

    Your collection is lovely. We collect smokers, as Matt lived for a bunch of years growing up in Germany and we’ve added to his childhood collection over the years. I love them, and can’t wait until we are permanently settled when I can get a whole bunch more :)ReplyCancel

Always one of my most popular annual offerings, don’t miss out on my two (yep, two!) 2015 Calendars. There’s a pretty nature calendar, filled with flowers and trees and clouds: And a rustic country calendar with farms and hay and windmills: I love to give these as gifts during the holidays. To teachers, my friends, […]

I don’t bake. Have I mentioned that? I can cook like nobody’s business, but I’m more of a cookie EATER than a cookie MAKER. Seriously. But I do love me some apple stuff in the Fall. Even if 1/2 of my family does not (harumph). This was floating around Facebook for a week or two, […]

  • Barb - THANK YOU for this! It looks easy and awesome. And YES, I can completely relate to 4:30 dark, 5:30 pajamas, and wanting lights out at 7:30. It’s 4:50 right now and it feels like midnight. At least I have a few Christmas lights up.ReplyCancel

If you’ve followed along at all, you know that our 2014 started out like a big old plateful of crap on a cracker. But if there’s anything good to come out of bad times, it’s appreciating the good ones. And I am WOEFULLY guilty of taking the good times for granted. My friend Cathy has […]

  • Elizabeth - Looks great, Lisa. Love the contrast provided by the black. Here’s to finishing (always my problem).ReplyCancel

  • Liz - Thank you for sharing! I am inspired to do this.ReplyCancel

  • Carrie - I think I’m going to do this this year as well! If not make an album, I’m at least being mindful to record something I’m thankful for each day.ReplyCancel

This is Dakota. She’s 9 and Mother of the two hooligans. As you can see, that mothering instinct never goes away. Her human mom tells me she does this all the time, taking care of her (now grown) pups: Meet Elway. He’s 7: And his sister, Belle. This shoot was all about this sweet girl. […]

  • Carley - Great work Lisa!! Thank you so much for capturing our pets’ lives! :)ReplyCancel
