Documentary Family Photographer » Serving Koblenz, Wiesbaden, Limburg, Cologne, Frankfurt and beyond.

10 on 10 | April 2013

This past month has been stressful. I have so much going on and very little time for creativity. Very little time for anything.

Thank goodness though for good friends that invite us to stay the night at their ranch and then fill our hearts. No Internet, phone service and masses of people. It feels so good live in the present… and then the images… well, they just come. And this month, they came and gave me life again.

My creative outlet is so much more to me than a pretty picture. Photography stimulates my soul and ignites me.

To sum it up, this month’s theme for me is gratitude. I don’t know how I’d survive without my supportive husband and friends who continue to inspire me, push me, and give me confidence. And a very special gratitude shout out to all of you reading this now. Without you all, there would be no purpose in what I do. Knowing that you all see my images and enjoy them is a powerful reminder to me that I matter. We all matter.

Now follow the loop and check out the amazingly talented Boca Raton family photographer,  Jackie Tyghem first!
