It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year























This is a) the elf that my mom put on my stocking she made me when I was a child, b) inspired by one of my favorite photographers...Linda Gentry. Check out her site at www.lindagentryphotography.com. She has a fabulous eye, this incredible way with light and such wonderful talent. She took a cool photo of her elf on a shelf..which sorta looks like my elf. :)



This is a sweet shot of my nieces waiting very patiently to talk to Santa.

Friends That are Dear to Us

Remember sweethearts David and Andrew? I was lucky enough to hang out with these two sweeties this week and they are even cuter then the last time I saw them. David is such a perfect guy to photograph..he has the posing down pat. His brother Andrew is at the stage where I got alot of shots of the back of him because he was all over the place...but when he did stop for a breather, I was able to capture his darling face. L O V E this family and I so enjoy hanging with you guys. Thanks for a fun morning!
P.S. The shot of Andrew with the "Who Turned the Lights Out" hat is one of my all time faves! And as you can tell, not being able to see did not slow him down one bit! :)

Love Times Three

Meet Isabelle, Paul and Mark. Three of the cutest, and sweetest kids you will ever meet. Isabelle & Paul LOVE, I repeat LOVE their little brother. It was adorable how much they loved hanging with him and playing with him. And Mark was so stinking cute! He loves his big brother and sister; especially playing with the top of their heads. Too funny. I so enjoyed spending time with this family..we should hang out more! :) Enjoy the mini-peek!

Fun Family Time

Meet my cousins! Judy and I are second cousins--her Mom and my Nana were sisters. Judy's daughter was in town recently, so they decided to do a 4 generation photo with Judy's daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter: can you believe how young those girls look!!! They all look fabulous. :) We had fun snapping some family photos, and even included the cute boys. I love how they look like trouble in their photo, but they were all as sweet as can be. Enjoy your sneak peek Judy and Family!

Fall 2011

Thank you Fall for allowing us to enjoy every last bit of your goodness before the snow flies. From your gorgeous colors to the beautiful weather that is allowing us to fly for what seems like forever in a "rocket ship" swing, we are not taking you for granted.

Remember When

Remember these babies? Flash cubes. I can remember as a child having them around the house, watching my parents use them and then being able to use them when I took pictures with their camera. I mostly took pictures of my stuffed animals, my dog Fred and my cat Henry and my room. I love how each side was one flash. These are ones that my Dad kept around..new, never used, in their original package. The price tag says $1.57, Mapleview Pharmacy, which was next door to my Dad's barbershop. Seeing these made me think about how much photography has changed. Back then, you had 4 flashes to get the picture right. Pictures are better quality nowadays, but were they better quantity back then, knowing you couldn't waste film or a flash? Interesting to think about...

Rain bells

This picture is a close up of rain bells that I have in my yard. They are these little bowls that are arranged together on moveable wires so that when it rains, they knock into each other making beautiful bell sounds. They sound lovely but without any rain lately, the only time they make noise is when I trip over them moving about in my garden.
