Peek Into A Week

rhubarb

Another photography project I began was to just shoot. For a week at a time, go about my everyday life and capture what “captures” me. I used to be a lot more into photography, and I am positive the winter from hell killed my drive to keep taking pictures. I mean, who really wants 400 pictures of the same snow covered crap? Without further ado, please enjoy a peek into a week. Also, you may be surprised to learn a {Read More}

In my bid to work on my photography and also having to move my office upstairs while Greg recuperates, I have started to keep my camera on my desk to capture any birdies I can that land on this birdhouse.

He didn't let me move for a second, he needed me more than anything in the world.

The surgery was planned way before I got my new Windows 8X phone to test out, but this phone came in very handy on Tuesday, January 29th as we took our 4 year old son to the hospital for outpatient dental surgery under general anesthesia. I got photos of his journey, and was able to update Facebook so his prayer warriors knew he was okay. I was grateful to not only have a phone with a great camera but also {Read More}

Unless you are a new visitor, or you have been living under a rock, you know that this blog is super heavy and bursting with beautiful photography. While this is not a brag, I can tell you that my photographs have led me to paying jobs.

When Mom Central asked for bloggers to try the Fellowes Saturn2 95 Laminator I jumped at the chance because I had so many ideas! First was the obvious.. flash cards!
