    We whirled around, hair flying, eyes watering and laughing hysterically in our Brownie uniforms, skating the “crack the whip,” across the wooden planked floor. One of us ended up in the ER with a chin full of stitches. (not her) We both looked up to our older sisters and strove to be just […]

    Kathy, Your photos are amazing…I follow you on facebook and so enjoy your beautiful work. But the photo of Wendy is amazing. The comments were so touching…I remember those days Brownies, of skating a Sportman’s hall, the day your received stitches, and the many evening of enjoying watching you both march. But what is so amazing is seeing what beautiful women inside and out you both have become, along with of your “big” sisters. What a joy to see both the Shilling Sisters and Williams Sisters grow into such spectacular women. Your very proud “Brownie Leader” and of course the William’s Sisters Mom….Sharon WilliamsReplyCancel

    Kathy: Again, how do you do this?! I so appreciate paintings, and how a gifted artist can guide their gentle hands with just the right palette of colors, lights and shades. But they start with nothing, and create what their heart visualizes any way they want. You are able to do that with living people, hearts that beat. Your canvas is already there. But like a fine sculptor, you peel away layers until you find the magic beneath. You capture the essence of the soul. You find what is not visible to the naked eye. You see people through your lens the way God sees them. And that is incredible. I do not know Wendy, but certainly, you bring this vivacious, “full of life and laughter” person out, and we are afforded the privilege of seeing her, as you say, “inside and out.” Great work. I can even see the friendship you have with her through your lens. I stand amazed.

    By the way, I always wondered how you got that scar on your chin…another life question answered!!ReplyCancel

  Love is a flower that grows in any soil, works its sweet miracles undaunted by autumn frost or winter snow, blooming fair and fragrant all the year, and blessing those who give and those who receive.   Louisa May Alcott knows a thing or two about love, and she could have been talking about […]

    Great pix, Kath! Arty, romantic, saturated with the day’s personality and invested with the people that made the day special. Both venues were elegant and beautiful, and I couldn’t help but think that this beautiful wedding and the way you captured the life and breath of these families inspires me to desire a renewal ceremony with you! Problem is, who would photograph like you would? You captured a forever slice of life in your lens. Lovely blog, Kathy.ReplyCancel
