{Bubbles, bubbles…}

I wanted to play today with some indoor shots. My daughter had other things in mind and wasn’t feeling very well, tummy ache – so this is all I got. Then I resorted to photographing some antique cameras I’ve collected. I love these old antique leather & metal cameras!! So many images captured on these cameras before they were considered unusable. Most of them still work – suprisingly. Anyway, it’s crazy to think of what images could’ve been photographed using these classic old cameras. I’ll never know…

Love your camera! I have one almost exactly like it! I think mine is dated 1910. Very cool.
I also have a really cool old Brownie with a great big flash bulb still attached with all that fluffy stuff inside.

Your website is beautiful! I love the background. Mine is just plain black, cause I’m technically challenged and don’t have a clue as to how to make it pretty. :)

Hello again… I did some indoor shots today too. How do you avoid those pesky indoor shadows? You have none, I have them in all three of my images this evening!!!

Very cool! You are so darn creative and eclectic! Love those tub shots!! Oh and your blog looks great! Love the background!!

{Timeless Black & White – Love them!}

I’m on a black & white kick these days {couldn’t resist changing my blog banner AGAIN, I know – I’m ridiculously indecisive :) }. Maybe it’s the cold weather, mist, fog, bare trees, and all the stillness that comes with the winter season that’s drawing me to B&W images… who knows. Anyway, since it was too cold to go outside today, I took a couple photographs of Brielle indoors {I casually asked Tyler if I could get a few of him, but he politely said ‘Not today mom’. So I didn’t ask again}. But he told me during dinner that I can photograph him tomorrow – woo hoo! And since I’ve had to post-pone all my recent sessions because it’s been so cold, I’m thrilled to be able to experiment, play and photograph my own children. I’m also working on a canvas wall display in our foyer, so I’m hoping to have more images to choose from with these quick moments that my kids are allowing me to snap away with my camera. Anyway, I miss photographing my clients but I’m thankful for these quick snippets of being able to photograph my kids, their life and who they are at this very moment. I’m sure you all will grow tired of seeing my children but there will be more variety to come…I promise!
Thank you for viewing my blog :)
Oh and I wanted to say hi to some photographers and aspiring photographers who’ve contacted me recently from London {Lone}, Canada {Katrina}, Germany {Niki}, and Ireland {Anne}. Thank you for your great e-mails – I love them!

Again….what a beautiful daughter you have. Question for you…how do you do your banner????

Love the pictures.
She is one gorgeous girl.

{My Little Girl…}

I can’t believe how grown up she looks (and she’s only 2 and a 1/2)! Anyway, I finally have time to sift through the few pics I snapped of Brielle today and I a few more that caught my eye. She’s not fond of this cold weather and you can tell by her seriousness. :) Anyway, I wanted to post these two before I went to bed!

Thank you Stephanie & Caitlin! My girl (my baby) is growing up far too fast!! I can’t help but photograph both of my children constantly. Time flies too quickly! Thanks for your comments!

I can’t believe she’s only 2.5!! Sooo cute!

Your daughter is just beautiful!!!!! She is going to be a heartbreaker some day!!!

{ Post-poned Sessions }

Due to the cold cold weather in the past couple of weeks, I’ve had to post-pone some sessions :( I hate doing that, but thankfully my clients are very understanding. I was testing the temperature this morning with my daughter, and brrr….it was cold! I should’ve looked at weather.com before heading out since it’s not supposed to get warmer till this weekend. I actually like this change of weather {shrug} – it makes me want to get in my comfy clothes, bake bread (or cookies) and make hot cocoa with marsh mellows. Oh yummy! I promised Tyler we’d go to the library today so maybe after that. Anyway…..stay warm! Thanks for visiting my blog!
