At the beginning of every year, my husband and I make resolutions.  Some work out, some don’t, but every year we try to do something new.  Something we haven’t done or accomplished before.  This year, I decided I wanted to really learn how to sail, quite possibly skipper, that means to captain, the boat by the end of the year. …

There are times during a portrait session that I wish I could do something a little crazy, but, for whatever reason, I don’t feel the liberty to do so.
