Thelma & Louise?

So my good friend Holly and I share passion for all things photography. We were truly excited to finally have an afternoon to actually photograph together instead of just talking about it! Needless to say it was a blast and we didn't get a citation. (I guess I should mention though that we did get a lengthy lecture on the dangers of electricity and railway systems and why we shouldn't have been on the railroad tracks even though no trains were coming and later the same officer saw us in the parking lot and made reference to Thelma and Louise... although I only ever saw previews of that movie...besides I think they drove a convertible and it was too cold for that today...) But enough rambling! We had a great time scoping out places to photograph around town. And now we each have great pictures for our own~ the one thing most photographers lack is a great photograph of themselves. Below are my faves of Holly~ she has the best giggle and I love her 'joyful expression'~ and you can check out the ones she took of me when she posts them on her blog at  (p.s. all railway pictures on this blog with the exception of the one below are taken on abandoned track. So no worries ;-)

  1. Thanks Marci! I had a great time and the pictures turned out great! I think I like the train track pic the best..maybe that's because the story behind it is a bit funny!


This is where you can post your thoughts about the pics! If this was your session, feel free to comment or describe a little bit about your experience. If you're just checking out the post, do you have a favorite image? Thanks for sharing ;-)

Giving Back~ Organizations supported by Circle of Life Photography

In giving back, Circle of Life Photography's main goal is to help those experiencing extreme poverty and nourishing them with food, shelter and spiritual guidance. Education is a big part of helping people learn how to help themselves and change the downward spiral of poverty for a better future for themselves and their children. Locally, a more tangible way of giving back is through using my photography gifts to serve others who are experiencing crisis (see NILMDTS and Pillows of Love.)

Compassion International~ Haiti's Child Survival Project

In 2011-12, Circle of Life Photography makes a monthly $30 donation to the non-profit organization, Compassion International, whose goal is to change Haiti through the rescue, nuture and discipling of children during the critical early childhood years.

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation (NILMDTS) gently provides a helping hand and a healing heart for families overcome by the grief and pain of the death of their newborn or infant. Offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner is the heart of this organization. The soft, gentle heirloom photographs of these beautiful babies are an important part of the healing process. They allow families to honor and cherish their babies, and share the spirits of their lives. I am an active NILMDTS volunteer photographer for Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center and Lancaster Women & Babies Hospital.

Joni & Friends Family Retreat

I am honored to be a volunteer photographer at the Joni & Friends Family Retreat in the Poconos (Spruce Lake Retreat) for a week each summer (click here for past blog post.) Joni & Friends seeks to serve as a ministry of outreach to people with disabilities and their families across the US and around the world. Families from around the country attend Family Retreats seeking relaxation, encouragement and a time to strengthen their family.
