Touch-Up Tuesday

June 22, 2010
I’m excited to link up with The Bonnie 5 for Touch-Up Tuesday. You guys know I love Before & After posts, so this (along with Pixel Perfect’s Before and After) will allow me a forum for delivering these types of posts. Bonnie joked with me last week that although she’s excited that I’m joining, that everyone will wonder why I’m not hosting this challenge myself. One day…Anyways, this is Stella. You may remember her from this post. She is now 3 months old, and I’m finally ready to present this Before & After. Not that it was that much of a...

Simplicity: Selfie

June 22, 2010
Faith, over at Simplicity, sent me an email last week. To tell me that I won last week’s challenge: REST. To ask if I would be a guest mentor during her Summer Photography Class. Can I just tell you that she made my week, my month, my year with those two things. I heart you Faith! So, if you’re looking for an inexpensive photography course, I encourage you to sign up now…it’s open for another week, I think.  This week’s challenge is SELFIE (aka Self-Portrait). I have often admired self-portrait artists such as Miss Aniela and Rosie Hardy. Their work is...

Shutterlove Tuesday: Father’s Love

June 22, 2010
The week’s theme at the Trendy Treehouse is “father’s love.” I haven’t taken any recent shots of my father (or even my Father-in-Law, Brother-in-Law, etc), so I decided to dive into my archives. This is my Father-in-Law with his grandson (my nephew), during Christmas. At the time, Carter was just eight months old and happy with life as he knew it. If only I could be a child again. I’d just gotten my DSLR the month prior, so this shot was likely captured in AUTO. Furthermore, now that I know better, the pin lights are kinda disturbing. Nonetheless, I love...

In a Yellow House: Water

June 22, 2010
This week’s In a Yellow House theme is Water. Last week, for You Capture‘s photo challenge (which was also water) , I shared a photo I took of a leaf right after a rain storm. This week, I thought I’d share another photo from my “photo shoot” at the Rose Garden. This is Nicholas, and he loves the pond…in fact, I only wish I’d captured the moment where he was dipping his feet in the pond (yeah, Mommy brought a change of clothes, but not a change of shoes). He rarely looked at me, but I love this sweet moment where he’s gotten brave enough to...
