2015-09-27_0003Andrew and Eliza’s story began at Grace Baptist Church.  They meet there and over the past year their friendship grew into something more.  Around the church friends familiar with them noticed a change in there lives.  They noticed something different.  It was a joy that showed up when they were with each other.

Turning Point Images-Eliza Loves Andrew (7 of 26)Family and friends permeated the whole place.  Lots of family and friends.  The wedding party had 8 groomsmen and 8 bridesmaids.  The bridesmaids were some of the most enthusiastic I have ever worked with.  But the obvious leader of the pack was Eliza.  She had the beauty and whimsy of a classic bride from days gone by.





This is just the first page the of their story.  A story being written each day by the love they show toward each other.  A story that God brought about and will continue to write.2015-09-27_0004

I really can’s say this post is my own thoughts. It is partly due to my friend’s Justin and Mary who posted a great post earler today.  You can read it here.

Turning Point Images FOMO-389

The article reminded me of FOMO.  FOMO is another acronym in the ever-growing alphabet of acronyms.  FOMO stands for Fear of Missing Out.

Before the world of constant comparisons we would look around see where our friends were then simply set reasonable goals attain them and then set more.  With the influx of instagram, facebook, and twitter though we have  a whole word of never ending goals to strive for.  It’s like  when you were a kid and you’r parents would mark your height along the edge of the door each year that you got older.  You maybe had a brother or sister to compare yourself to but that was about it.  It was a simpler time.  But now it’s as though there are a thousand other people lined up along that door and you constantly compare yourself to them.

We have to stop it!

It truly does nobody any good to constantly compare themselves to everyone else.  Everybody’s rode is different.  Everybody’s success is different.  I don’t know if I have ever meet anyone who does not struggle with this.  I struggle with this.  I struggle when I see all my photography friends posting beautiful photos from the wedding they just shot.  I struggle sometimes between commenting “Wow what an amazing shot” or thinking why couldn’t that have been me.  The truth is I am blessed every day to be able to sleep in a bed, eat more than I should, and drive a car that goes from point a to b.  Your probably like me and you are blessed with more than you know.

When today is over be thankful for the things your have done and friends you have seen.  Say a prayer of thankfulness for we have all been blessed more than we know.

Turning Point Images Mystic CT-5I already wrote about what a great time I had with my mom in Burlington. This part two of a wonderful week all about our day in Mystic, CT.

Mystic is an old whaling town. Stepped in the history of the whaling trade it is a seaside town with the largest maritime museum in the United States.  This is where we spent the day.

As you walk the streets you are thrown back two hundred years.  As you meander the town you see demonstrations of blacksmithing, told about historical medical practices as well as learning about school life during the 19th century.

One of the highlights was going aboard the Charles W. Morgan. It is the last wooden whale ship in the world. While there we learned all about life aboard the ship. The highlight was being there while they had a man overboard drill.

Another highlight was being able to take a horse drawn buggy ride around the town. Complete with a friendly canine in the front seat.

True to form we finished off the day with ice cream from Twister’s Ice Cream. As you can see mom enjoyed it and I did as well!Turning Point Images Mystic CT-83

Turning Point Images Burlington MA-27Two weeks back my mom came to visit.  As I was thinking of the possibilities I thought of Burlington, VT.  I had always heard what a great place it was.  I offered it up with a few other spots and mom agreed Burlington would be great! So off we went.Turning Point Images Burlington MA-46

We arrived on Wednesday night.  After a quick dinner at the hotel we went to the docks.  While there we grabbed some ice cream and admired the sun set on Lake Champlain.  A beautiful lake full of stories.

The next day we headed downtown to Church Street.  An old world style street with cable stone where foot traffic is the only mode of transportation allowed.  We had lunch at El Gato as a suggestion from my friend Joline.  Never would have thought I would find such good Mexican food on the streets of Burlington.Turning Point Images Burlington MA-76

Turning Point Images Burlington MA-75That night my sweetheart of a mom put up with me as I went on an adventure to see Mt. Philo.  Mt. Philo is a mountain set a little south of Burlington in Charlotte Vermont.   It was another beautiful night spent seeing the sound go down.

On Friday we went on not one but two different cruises around the lake!  Lake Champlain has a great history and we heard all about it while going around the lake.  During the early part of American Revolution it played a pivotal part in creating a strong hold.  This strong hold helped them to be able to create and manufacture ships to use in the impending war.

The next day we said goodbye to Burlington but one the way out of town we stopped to have our cordial visit to Ben and Jerry’s ice cream factory.



As we left Vermont we did have one last stop.  We visited my mother’s childhood friend Martha in Chester. While there we stopped by the famous Hugging Bear Inn and Shoppe.  Filled with wonderment from the first step through the door you are transported back to being a child as you look around at shelves and shelves of Teddy Bears.


My few days with my mom were some of the best in history.  This is not the end of the story though we still have at least one more day coming up soon.

Dogs.  I have always had a soft spot for them.  Ever since I was a kid and we had our first dog a Boston Terrier, Frito! What do I like about dogs you ask?  I love the way they greet you even though you have not gotten in the door yet.  The way l curl up with you on the couch.  They way they are sometimes loyal to a fault protecting kids when they are around.  Yes!  I love dogs!


This post is about a special organization, PRONE.  PRONE is a Pug Rescue based in New England.  My friend Joline has been involved with them for years.  PRONE helps find homes for neglected and surrendered Pugs.  I was blessed to be able to spend my Saturday helping their cause.  I was the official photographer for the PRONE 5K Run/Walk.


We meet up at Carson Beach in South Boston.  Their were a few hundred in attendance.  The Pugs and there owners came out in full force.  It was a beautiful day!  You could hear barking all around as the runners prepared for the race.  Off the runners went.


They went down and back along the beach.  As they made it through the finish line you could see the Boston Skyline in the distance.  Returning they quickly grabbed water to quench their thirst.


At the end of the race runners hurriedly searched the results to see where they placed.  In the end awards were given out as the crowd watched.


It was a great occasion and if you are interested in finding out more about PRONE and how to help Pugs in need click here.
