A True Friend

There is a woman who will give you the shirt off her back, if she thought it could help you. She is the epitome of kindness and love, all wrapped into someone I consider my best friend, and literally, a second mother.

She takes photographs of subjects with a keen, original artistic eye that, in my humble opinion, is unsurpassed in today's clip-art saturated society. She is unique, and her photography stands far out from the rest.

She loves and makes awesome collages, and can digitally enhance a photograph with a stunning aesthetic that is truly her own. I am honored to say that I own several of her art cards, and they truly are a treasured possession of mine.

Whether she's in a friend's garden in Bloomfield, NJ, or studying the pavement in a bustling NYC, she listens to her inward artistic voice, and answers the call when a subject is begging to be photographed.

She is a proud and caring Mother and Grandmother, and is a loving and devout follower of Jesus, a fact which she is happy to share :) She is one of the kindest people I have ever known, and I can't even express how much she means to me in a mere blog post... the words fall short of what I'm truly trying to say.

Each of her pieces mean something special to her. Often times, there is a touching story behind her photos, and if you visit her Etsy Shop, you will be able to read about the meaning behind the photo in each picture's descriptions.

Sue is a beautiful woman who takes beautiful photographs...

If I could say just one thing to you, Sue, it would be thank you from the bottom of my heart for being you. There is no one like you in the world, and everyone who knows you is truly, truly blessed.

I love you, Mom.
