Sharing Those Magic Moments

Life is full of Magic Moments.

Some big, life altering moments like a wedding or the birth of a baby. And some smaller moments that we never want to forget: first steps, first day of school, a new job, a vacation, a quiet moment, the list goes on and on. A Magic Moment is a moment you are so happy to have captured on camera.

    I LOVE the snow on the beach: that one belongs in a tourism brochure: such a juxtaposition: I love it.
