Wishing my mom a Happy Birthday!!

She is such a great mother – always so helpful and so supportive! She is the mom that is always there when I need someone to talk to, the mom that is always there to cheer me up and make me feel better. She is the mom that is always helpful and full of great ideas when it comes to decorating my house. She is the mom that is always cheering me on and encouraging me in my many goals and dreams.

She is the grandmother that is always showing my boys how much she loves and supports them. She is the “nan” that is always interested in all the little things they do and always makes them feel so important and special!

Happy Birthday Mom!! I wish I could be with you today to celebrate – to take you to lunch and have some fun!! We love and appreciate you and all that you do for us!!


I am hosting the guest celebrity chat over on the Scrapbook Goddess website this month. It is my first online chat and I am super excited! So, please join me – it will be a lot of fun! It is this coming Monday, January 22nd at 5pm pacific time, 6pm mountain/arizona time and 8pm eastern time. Looking forward to chatting with everyone!!


And last, I have been receiving more emails with photography questions so I want to do a question-and-answer here on my blog so I can finally respond to everyone!! Sound good?

Just post a comment with your questions and I will answer all of them here sometime next week. Even if you have emailed me your question before today, go ahead and re-post with your question so that I am sure to answer it. I know that I have learned a lot from other people this last year and I want to help others out in any way that I can so, ask away…..

    i know you’ve answered some of my questions before, but here was my latest one … would you be willing to share a few shots straight from your camera? i know a great photo comes from taking a great picture, but i also know that editing can do wonders too. not looking for your secret editing tricks … just curious what your photos look like right from the start.
    thanks maggie!

    I was just wondering what lens you use for your portraits. You’ve probably answered that before, but I must have missed it. Love your photos!

    Hi Maggie,
    You probably don’t remember me. I am Heather(Dahlquist-White’s) older sister. You are an amazing photographer. My husband and I have been going through all your past entries looking at your fun picture. You boys are adorable.
    Brady said to tell Brian hi. Hope you guys are doing well. You have a beautiful family.

    Hey Maggie,
    I was wondering if you could share with us how you handle all of your digital photos. What is your “workflow?” (I’d love details, seriously from your camera all the way through the editing, storage, printing, browsing and backup stage!) You do beautiful work! I’m excited to read answers to your Q&A.

    Is there drawbacks from using a non digital SLR camera (besides being able to edit it through an editing program)? Digi cameras kind of intimidate me and I am looking for a good SLR camera, but I also don’t want to hold myself back if it holds me back from great pictures.

    Hi Maggie,
    Darn. I missed the chat. 🙁
    I also would love to know your lens preferences & your workflow.
    What photos are you just itching to take of Baby Holmes? 🙂
