Way back in June, my friend, Kathy Hensel Porter,  brought her dear little Tessa to the Studio for portraits. Both Tessa and Kathy were in need of a business portrait since there was a book in progress.

It wasn't initially the plan to use Tessa's cute face for the cover photo.  After trying some other ideas, Kathy determined that it would make her happiest to have her very own, long time friend, be the one to welcome you when reading her stories in "Love Always Wags It's Tail".

The book was launched on Amazon just before Christmas and is now on the top 100 list! You can download to your Kindle here. The paperback version is now out!  If you're a dog person, this is just the book for you!

Tree of Life
Author: Unknown
From the Tree of Life each leaf must fall.
The green, the gold, the great, the small.
Each one in God's own time He'll call.
With perfect love, He gathers all.

Raptor Visit

It's very unusual for us to see a hawk on the lake side of the house. This red tailed hawk stopped by our front yard yesterday and when I woke up this morning, he was back! What a beautiful site to look our your window and see this majestic bird. Hope he keeps us company for a long time!
