“Sweet Dreams”


This photograph has a special place in my heart because it shows my precious niece, Olivia, and her dog Bo. They were taking an afternoon nap, and the light coming in from the curtained windows was perfect. I couldn’t resist capturing the moment. Olivia is my favorite model, and she inspires me in many ways.
