November 2010 - Ramblings and Photos
Give Thanks

November 30, 2010
I did not take many photos during Thanksgiving. My family clearly knows that I love photography and I love blogging, but I’m not sure I need to rub their nose in it every time I’m around them. There are times that I just want to live in the moment. However, I did take a few photos during Thanksgiving weekend and this is one of them – my mother/father-in-law’s home. For me, their home reminds me of our family there (we’re about 4.5 hours away, so we only see them a few times a year)…and I am so thankful for marrying into such a wonderful family. My...

I Heart Faces: Scenic Black and White

November 29, 2010
This week’s I Heart Faces theme is: “scenic black and white.” I prefer a “fill the frame” approach to photography, so I often miss the bigger picture because I am so focused on a face or detail. My husband, on the other hand, loves a beautiful landscape shot. Last summer, we were scoping out photography spots for an upcoming portrait shoot when we found a hand full of photographers paired with families along the beach. Clearly, that particular time and location were ideal for portraits so we stopped and took a few shots of each other. For some reason, when I saw...
