New Year, New Baby, New Post

I’m trying to get the hang of being a mother of 5 children. The toughest for me is having a toddling, 2 year old boy. He is a delight and his energy and enthusiasm are endless. I must admit being a little nervous about S’s reaction to his new little brother, as well as his behavior toward him. He has been nothing but gentle, concerned and loving.

It’s good to be back!

A Little Levity

New Beginnings

Thank you for visiting my photo blog. It is here where I chronicle the evolution of my passion for photography. I have developed a new look-and-feel for this site that is more reflective of the images I enjoy taking and the style in which they are captured.  The new name, “Little Flower Photography,” comes from my favorite saint, St. Thérèse of Lisieux, “The Little Flower” (
