About the Book
This is a photo journal of my daughter's first year. I took a photo every day to send to my husband so he wouldn't miss a day of her life, at least visually. This book is a collection of those photos, and the photos I took after he came home.
Cynthia Roelle is an award-winning photographer, whose portfolio includes fine art as well as documentary-style portrait and wedding photography. In September 2005 she deployed to Iraq with the United States Army for a one-year tour of duty. Although an attorney by vocation, it was in Iraq that she began to pursue photography as more than an avocation. In March 2007, six months after returning from Iraq, her images of Iraq were featured in Black & White Magazine, a magazine for collectors of fine art photography. In May 2008 she attended Review Santa Fe, a juried portfolio review event for photographers who have created a significant series of images. Cynthia’s photographs of Iraq are held in the permanent collection of the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona, Florida and have been exhibited in galleries in the Southeast United States and Hawaii, and in Big World Magazine, an on-line, multi-media magazine.
