"Keep your camera with you at all times and always have a spare battery."

I cannot begin to recall all of the moments that I was able to capture on film because my camera was right beside me. One of the most memorable was when my daughter was just 5 years old.

We were driving to my parent's house for a normal visit (no major celebration in mind, no holiday, just a visit). The weather was a bit gloomy and cloudy and there were some dark skies hanging around. In the most excited voice, my daughter shouted, "Look mom, it's Heaven!" I pulled over to take a picture of the most beautiful rays of sun shooting through the clouds. It was a breath taking picture and a heart-warming moment. My reply to her was, "Yes, isn't it beautiful!" We still talk about that day today and we have a page to help treasure the memory.
