Throughout our home in Dallas, mementos Fred and I collected from places we lived around the world and treasured keepsakes passed down through our families adorn shelves and table tops. I do value these items, but most treasure photos representing special moments I shared with our daughter Kim and granddaughters Sasha (9) and Ashlyn (5). Recently I had the great pleasure of capturing these dance shots, the one during Sasha’s ballet class and the other during Ashlyn’s tap/jazz class. Both were taken through a screened viewing window with reflections. I then had fun adding some textures, layering, and framing.

In the Seize the Moment photo essay.
