    Sunday Sweets: Store Trip

    I am part of a group on Facebook called The Everyday Momtographer, for moms aspiring to capture the beautiful in everyday life, and every week there’s a new challenge. A few weeks ago, it was “in public” and we were challenged to document a trip outside of our own houses — to the park, to the store, on errands, wherever. So when we went for a short run to a small store near where we’re living, I timidly brought along the camera, sure someone would tell us we weren’t allowed to take pictures in stores. But nobody did, and I got some of my favorite pictures of Asa ever! I…

    {Photography: A Family Session}

    I think I mentioned before that I wasn’t going to post my photography on my blog, but after Desarae commented about it, and because it IS a part of my life, I decided… why not? Especially after a shoot like this! Last wednesday I had what I feel like was my first “real” family shoot– a photoshoot with people I don’t know that well (I think I’ve only ever met the daughters once, although we do have a lot of common friends.) It was a lot of fun, and I’m so, so pleased with how all of the pictures turned out! The parents had just had their 25th wedding anniversary,…

    Fairy of the Woods

    I’m sorry I haven’t been posting lately (although if you check my Facebook page, I’ve posted a few bits and bobs, but not much), but I’ve been really uninspired to put words to the pictures that I have. I’ve got a camping trip, an outfit post, and a 4th of July day all photographed, but… ah, I don’t know what it is with words lately! On Wednesday, I did a photoshoot with my friend Sarah– isn’t she gorgeous? We had a blast tramping around in the woods, pretending she was a forest fairy (or a Disney Princess– while we were shooting, a fawn came up within ten feet of her…

    Sunny Days

    This little boy. You guys. I didn’t think he could get any cuter, but somehow he manages to be cuter EVERY DAY. I could just take a million pictures of him(and my Instagram proves that I… might… *ahem*)! The weather yesterday and today is GORGEOUS, and he absolutely loves being outside in the shade of the apple trees, talking to the leaves and kicking his little toes in the breeze. In other news, I’m testing out the new watermark/logo my friend Sarah designed for me! What do you think? Personally, I love it. I mean… owls, so you know. Happy Wednesday!

    100 Happy Days

    I got to take pictures of my cousin’s adorable baby girl again on Easter; doesn’t she make the cutest bunny ever? Ah! I’m participating in the 100 Happy Days challenge, and today is my second day. Photography definitely makes me happy; I spent a lot of Easter day photographing family — my parents, my brother’s family, random candid shots, my cousin and her baby… and it was so much fun! I love capturing spontaneous moments, little details, everyday life… there is beauty in every day. Little fairytales in real-life moments, and I adore capturing that! So that’s day two of my 100 happy days. Capturing the fairytales in the little…
