Photos of me through the years, from about 4 years old to 44 years old. Celebrate Life.

It is important to capture your life as it passes you by, to celebrate your journey on the earth.

Live life well. Give live your best each day. Live in the now. Capture your life. Celebrate you. Everyday is a special day. Dress up. Take care of yourself. Do your best to feel good.


I recently just had new photos taken [see here]. Throughout the years I have always had my portrait taken. When my boys (old men now) were little tykes, I used to take photos with my sons. Selfies are cool and fun, but getting your portrait taken and chronicling your life is crucial for archival and documenting purposes. It is good to have photos of your life experience and to see yourself as you age, and as you progress through your life journey.
