Some things are worth a little effort and this weekend was one of them!
Despite their flight being delayed in Chicago, Allie and Zach rallied and we did their engagement shoot today.
They both have fond memories and roots of the Cape and now we all share one more. Congratulations to these two special people!
Beyond the Queen's Chamber . . .
There is a time of day inside the Queen’s Chamber of Blarney Castle in Cork, Ireland
where the sunlight bathes across the stone floor among shadows deep
perhaps with a promise of something more . . .

Solace everywhere . . .
“True solace is finding none, which is to say, it is everywhere.”
(From the Wyoming Series)
Keeping the unknown . . .
“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing...and keeping the unknown always beyond you.”
Thank you Larisa!
Recently fine art painter Larisa Martino stopped by the studio for a visit and we had a wonderful photo shoot with the environment at hand. Check out her blog and website!
Instincts . . .
“No valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.”
Courage to stay delicate . . .
"Softness is not weakness.
It takes courage to stay delicate
in a world this cruel."
(From the Passage Series, 20x22")
cultural dynamic . . .
"I basically get stereotyped a lot in terms of being a girl and writing 'chick' music for teenage girls or something. I think, if anything, the press kind of, because of my gender and my age, tends to kind of relegate my work to this sort of special-interest group. It's part of the cultural dynamic, I guess."
