For Sale

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

Over the past few months I have expressed how I would love to sell some of my work. Finally have the time to go through the long list of folders full of some of my pictures. Here is just a few samples of the growing collection that is coming together. When completed there well be a full price list for those who wish to purchase prints. Thanks for all the growing support that I have received over the past year.

This morning our dear family friend and most loved pet was hit by a car today. My husband went to leave for work this morning and saw Sam laying out in the street. The only thing we can guess is that he was coming home to greet us and to eat his morning breakfast. To me the hardest thing I had to do was tell my children that one of our dearest friends will no longer be with us.

Logan called him Ham even tho many many times of correcting him, it was always Ham. Where's Ham, Come on Ham, Uh O Ham got in. I don't think we will ever find a more loving, caring cat, nor will we want to. We will miss you dear friend and thank you for coming into our lives so briefly as you have.

Rain Drops

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

Here are some pictures I took last week. The bottom two were from a morning walk at the Duck Pond with Logan. The top one was taken Saturday after Hannah's soccer game. We were half way through our 9 am soccer game when the rain finally arrived. We lost the game sad to say but the day was not a total loss.... well for me it wasn't :) We have two porches on our house so I grabbed my mono pod, a chair, and my camera and went out to get some rain drop pictures. Why who knows but for a while now I am have been obsessed with trying to perfect the perfect rain drop picture. These are great but to my standards I am getting a tad closer but could do much much better!
Will have the rest of the rain drop images posted on my better photo site.
Have a good week.

A few weeks ago my camera had some issues which meant it had to be sent back to Canon. It came back the other day and so I wanted to test it out. It was raining outside so going outside was not a option for me. Instead I decided my 2 yr old would be the perfect test subject. A while back had got a collection of stocking hats that I was saving for winter. Found one that I really liked and put it on Logan so it would add some color to the image. For the like of me I could not get him to concentrate and listen to me so I finally had to bribe him with a big giant lolly pop. This got his attention and created some wonderful images. Hope you like them.

Best Friends

Monday, September 8, 2008

See I told you I am unable to stay away from photoshop. I have one more to share with you. This is my daughter (on the left) and her best friend Kate. A few weeks back Kate's mom and aunt had got together with me and we had a very fun session. The pictures of the twins several post down are her cousins. The hats they are wearing are actually for toddlers but they seem to work for them as well.

Busy Day

Today has turned out to be a very busy day for a Monday. Course I am not surprised since its the first day of the week and everybody is back to work and school. I normally take Monday off when it comes to my photography. But today I am unable to escape the urge to jump into photoshop and start editing. Course my growing pile of stack of important papers on my desk tell me that there will be no fun or no playing in photoshop today. So I give you just one picture as its so cute and could not resist.

Last night I was frantically looking for a set of images that I needed for a client. Should say that I did find them took me a while and a few stressed complaint sessions to my husband. He is such a good listener let me tell you! For those who are just curious to know they were in a folder named after something else. Totally forgot that I combined two sessions into one folder to save me time, and room. Why my logic of that who knows it was many many months ago but its all good now that I have found them. Any ways last night I was going through some old albums and found our vacation pictures to Roaring River in MO. My son is just a cutie and loves to pose. But while checking them out I was playing with the settings and managed to find a good picture of him and I looking cool in our sun glasses.
Hope you have a good week!

Day of Hope

Friday, September 5, 2008

I am late posting these but some times better late then never! Two churches in town came together and created a charity called Day of Hope. What they did is give out FREE clothing, medical screening, hair cuts, groceries, lunch, prayer, diapers, and much much more. I was blessed to spend the day with a lot of loving, caring and amazing people. Below is just a few pictures that I was lucky to capture. Hopefully once I get my web site revamped you will be able to see all the pictures. Both Churches have copies of the pictures and absolutely LOVED what I was able to capture for them.

Sam's light snack

About a month or so ago I got a new macro lens and was sitting out side finding things to try it out on. Across the street comes this grey cat that was hunting for food. The kids and I thought it would be fun to call it over to visit with the cat and for me to get a few pet shots. Well the cat never left and has been here since. We call him Sam but Logan calls him

On the first day of school my son Ryan decides to slide off the front of a car hood and bust his head wide open. Four hours in the ER, a CT Scan, 6 staples and a 2,000.00 hospital bill! Thankfully and the blessing of God his head has healed up just fine. We kept him out of school for the next two days and while we were trying to find things to pass the time away we went out side to play around in the yard. Sam had come to visit and while being well the lazy cat he is had caught a Locust as it was flying to another tree. Never in my life had I ever seen a cat eat this type of bug, but I am hear to show you its true. Here is a picture of Sam eating a light snack.

Two little Cuties

Thursday, September 4, 2008

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure photographing two very adorable twin girls. They were neices of a friend of mine and over the past few years I have seen them at soccer games and always wanted to take their pictures. Thought I would post a few pictures from their session.
