Flowers and Pumpkins

October 23, 2010
I’m slowly working through my photo files and found a couple worth sharing (or at least two shots that appropriately fit a couple of photo memes this week). You see, I got a Lens Baby Composer at the end of last week and was pretty excited to try it out. These are my first two shots with my new lens. You’re likely to see many more shots in the upcoming days with my Lens Baby so stay tuned. Unfortunately, after I took this shot, this particular mum died. A bright yellow mum has replaced it. As you can see, we don’t carve our pumpkins…instead, my mom sent me a big...

October 22, 2010
I’ve mentioned a time or two that I love autumn. I love the weather, the change of colors and the sky. I’ve been looking up at the sky a lot lately…each day is different. God is really an amazing artist! I’ve taken so many beautiful sky photos lately, that I thought I’d share a couple with you today (and don’t forget that one of your Scavenger Hunt items this week is sky too)…I’m still holding onto a couple for Sunday. This first shot was taken on my way to work this week. The sky was so beautiful that I couldn’t wait to pull up to a stop...

Anniversary Cake!

I love love loved our wedding cake. When we were planning our wedding, I went to a bridal show for “inspiration.” To be completely honest, I thought the whole thing was a waste of time with the exception of CAKE TASTINGS! I hadn’t quite figured out what type of cake we’d have at our wedding…I just knew that we’d probably use a local baker – one who typically baked pound cakes and decorated with fondant. That would have been all fine and good until I had a taste of a sweet potato cake. I remember leaving the show with my mom talking about how much I...

Before and After: Dustyn!

October 21, 2010
For those of you with children, you know how much “fun” it can be to get a two year old to stop and smile at you. The reality is that you get comfortable and play like a two year old to get that perfect shot. Alright…so, take all of that with a grain of salt – I’m certainly not a professional, but my limited experience tells me that children are more likely to act natural and show their personality if you’re playing with them. Well, I did just that on Tuesday evening. As I mentioned the other day, I met up with Sarah and her family for a mini-portrait...
