Ummm.....hi.....

....ummm.....yeah....so, my sister (hi Elaine!) mentioned she hadn't seen an update on my blog for a million years awhile...

.....and she's right. (Older sisters are always right....right?) Busy would be one word I could use as an excuse.

The other would be I spend a lot of time over at Facebook and try and keep that a bit current soooo........you can always visit me there and see what's up.



I'd love you to come over and follow along and "like"  my page. (That'll ease my guilt for not updated here as often.)

I also update my photography on my website.


Meanwhile, here's a picture of my girlies during a recent walk in our park. I'm happy to say our snow is now officially GONE, even though we got a big dump only last Friday.

And Dahlia, on her 10 birthday in March. (How can it be that my babies are 5 and 10!! that's hardly an original thought but it still blows my mind.)

Thanks for stopping by (and forgiving my absence.)

Hope to see you on Facebook.

Happy Spring everyone!

Favorite Photo Friday

DSC_0083-2 texture wm blog 
Since starting my photography business, I find I'm taking pictures "just for fun" less and less. And though it's probably pretty normal - it's also frustrating for me.

So last week, when Dahlia had a day off school we hit our favorite mall where normally the atrium area is full of flowers and decor. Nothing...nada....hardly a flower. There were holes in all the raised beds where they had just pulled out most of the flowers in preparation for changing them to a spring theme. 

Still, we found a few nice areas to grab a few shots. This is one of my favorites. 

I can hardly believe that my little girl will be turning 10 in a few weeks! Where is that time going?

Happy Friday!

Favorite Shot of 2012 - Rock the Shot



WEDDING N&B #1 360 wm


Yup....I'm repeating myself here.

Another favorite shot entry, this time for "Rock the Shot" www.rocktheshotforum.com

This image (from a wedding I shot in 2012) is far from a portrait image but I love it anyway, mainly for the eye of the little girl behind her big sister.

I was using the Nikon D4 (for the first time) and was standing at the front of the church, really zooming with a 70-200mm 2.8 lens so the clarity is not there. But the church door had just opened and in poured this delicious light behind these two little cherubs.
 
Rock the Shot

Have a perfect week!
