Scavenger Hunt Sunday - Ramblings and Photos

June 02, 2013
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Welcome back to Scavenger Hunt Sunday and happy birthday Dad! You’ll remember that last week, I gave you all an open hunt. I hope you all had fun with it. I’m personally going to take this opportunity to share a few photos from our vacation. I’m also going to share a couple of photos from my brother’s wedding.

For those of you who didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week…next week’s list came from a few Facebook friends. I hope her prompts will inspire you!

The rules are simple:
  1. Anyone can participate.
  2. You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. Creativity is also encouraged!
  3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive (although I’m not too strict about it – I do my best to take fresh shots).
  4. Link up here on Sunday (or Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above.
  5. Leave comments for at least five entries around yours (with so many new participants each week, it’s the only way I know to be inclusive
  6. Have fun!
Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. My First Beach Trip

IMG_9804 RS
I think I mentioned earlier in the week that our beach trip was Felicity’s first vacation…and her first beach trip. She really loved it, even if she’s not giving you a big cheesy grin in this shot. Don’t you like how even her bathing suit is monogrammed? Thanks Gran!

2. Mommy and Me

IMG_9940 RS
I made sure to pass my camera off to my husband so that I was in a few shots while we were at the beach. I really love this one. We also have one of all three of us – but I haven’t edited it yet.

3. Daddy’s Girl

IMG_9744 RS
Over the past month or so, Felicity has really taken to her daddy. I knew it was only a matter of time…especially when he takes her to do fun things like stepping into the ocean for the first time.

4. First Kiss

IMG_1026 RS
My brother got married last week just before the holiday weekend. I was their photographer (although, let me state for the record that I AM NOT A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER). I still have a whole lot of processing to do, but here’s a first look from their wedding. Congratulations guys.

5. Sitting Alone

Sitting Alone RS
Here’s another random shot from my shoot at Joyner Park. I love the black and white processing on such a simple but elegant shot. I hadn’t really planned to put Felicity in front of the camera, but I’m glad I did.

So, what were your interpretations of the items this week? Be sure to load your pictures on your blog (or your Flickr photostream) and link up at the bottom of this post. Feel free to grab a button to display on your blog along with your scavenger hunt items. The linky will be open until Tuesday night at midnight (EST). If you didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week, next week is wide open. Just choose your top 5 favorite photos from your week and share them. It’s just that easy. I’ll be back again next Sunday with five new prompts.

  1. Dishes
  2. Favorite Color
  3. Sunflare
  4. Expression
  5. Sticky

If you’d like to contribute items to the list, just send me an email with your suggestions (I can better keep track of them this way). Each week, I will select one reader’s prompt list and give the selected reader a shout out on my blog during Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

Happy Shooting!


    Beautiful photos, as always, Ashley! Love the beach shots! Looks like Felicity enjoyed her first beach vacation! Congrats to your brother! Love that last shot! I agree that B&W looks great!

    BTW, I’m not usually up until midnight, but for some reason, tonight I am. I’m heading to bed now, although I’m still not really tired. :)

    What a fun time at the Beach. I too love the shot of you and Felicity. You did a nice job on your brother’s wedding shots and that last BW of Felicity is really cute.

    Gorgeous beach shots!

    Great vacation shots, Ashley. I love Mommy and Me! So sweet, and great colors in sea and sky – and on mommy and me, too. :)

    Great beach shots!! Looks like you had a wonderful vacation and then a happy wedding too!

    Looks like a nice little getaway!

    Beautiful beach photos!! Looks like a beautiful way to start the summer!

    Aw! I love Felicity’s face in the first shot. She’s so cute!

    Felicity with that bow in her hair is adorable. What beautiul beach shots!

    That first shot is so precious! I love it.

    I was just thinking that your first shot could have had the same title as the last one!

    love the one of your little gal sitting alone on the path

    Looks like an amazing trip. Oh how I miss the shore.

    Swooning over the last one- the simplicity is stunning!!

    Hello Ashley, spectacular photos you have presented. I’m joining in new for the first time this week, and I discovered you from Junk Boat which has been posting with you too! I may have goofed up my first go at this, as I thouht it was photographer’s choice, by reading Junk Boat but what the heck right, it seems new things always take a bit of working out the rough edges right! – Karen

    I like that last BW shot. A fun setting for a child’s portrait. Glad you had vacation time.

    Your daughter is so cute. I love that last pic especially.

    Great choices, and I love how much Felicity has grown! I especially love her expression in that last image, too cute! Looks like her first vacaiton was a huge success!

    I love these photos! Felicity hair has gotten so light but it is beautiful all the same..


    What fun photos you’ve chosen! The last one of Felicity is fabulous! the beach photos are priceless!

    Just love those beach shots – I remember well the first beach trip with my baby (now 17) – oh how quickly time flies by.

    Great fun shots! Love the one of you with Felicity at the beach. I’d say you look like a pretty good wedding photographer.
