So many times I have missed the moment, because the lighting wasn't Just right, or the moment wouldn't allow me to follow compositional rules that would make for a killer image.  Over time I have learned to abandon "the rules" and just capture the moment.  Mac Life is a collection of my favorite images that reflect life with my brood...most often the lighting wasn't perfect and the composition followed no rules~yet these moments are a treasure to my heart.  

*a heartfelt thank you to my dear friend and fellow photographer, Maura Roberts~for getting me with my family~in front of the lens!
