{daily photo} baby proof!

it’s time. blinds are up, cabinets locked, coffee tables cleared and the stairs blocked off!



what a difference shooting someone ELSE’S child makes! A beautiful – cooperative girl at that!!! I had all this time and she never stopped smiling, i honestly didn’t know what to do!! Thank you Evie and Sharon, for the easiest shoot I’ve had in months 😉

The way I view {happiness}

It’s April! That means it’s time for the CM blog circle, “the way i view”…. and this month is “Happiness”.

This is my brother holding his daughter just hours after she was born. I chose this image, because, well… there is not much in life that is stronger than the happiness you feel while holding your first born child. I also like the image because of the composition, i forced myself to step back and really take a look at what i was capturing. i’m a little ‘eh’ on the processing and exposure, but it’s not terrible, so that’s a plus!!

now, GO and visit the beautifully talented Carrie at Yi Li Photography and see how she views happiness


too much birthday fun!! {daily photos}

yesterday we celebrated Drew’s 4th Birthday with all his friends (we missed you Haley!!) As always, I was running around like a crazy woman, I didn’t even attempt to get pictures of the action. I did set up a photo booth in the baby’s room, but never really forced anyone to go back there, so i only got a few shots. blah.

what i did capture, was the aftermath 😉

(I just love morning light!! every morning i drink my coffee, i want to take pictures of everything! )

what was left of the cake…
