Tea Party 2012

  I have set a goal this summer to photograph my kids more...I hope you don't get sick of seeing their sweet faces!  I not only want to photograph them more, but I want to attempt more stylized shoots that I haven't had time for in the past.  It's fun to set up a scene for sessions (a lot of work, but fun nonethelesss)!!!

My Yard/My Second Hobby

I have been working hard in the yard this spring.  I love to get my camera out to capture all the different blooms.  It helps me to document what I have planted.  I seem to forget what is planted in each bed when the following planting season rolls around.  

I was looking back at my pictures from last spring and realized that I haven't seen this gorgeous bloom this year...I guess the horrible heat killed it off last year.  BUMMER!

Bell Flower
 I have a severe LOVE/HATE for Irises.  I love the blooms, but they are too invasive and will take over the entire yard.  

 Our roses have done exceptionally well this season!

 This is the first year that I have planted tulips.
 Hydrangea - (5 bushes)


I added two Peony bushes this year.  I can't wait to take pictures of pink peonies next year!

How Sweet

Continuing baby week,  I thought I would post one of our newly hatched spring babies, complete with a funky mohawk!  We had a pair of finches nest in a candle holder on our porch.  We named the female DaFinchy, and she provided us with lots of entertainment this spring.  GiGi was thrilled to have baby birds to admire every day. They grew up fast and soon flew away.  We thought we were going to be empty nesters for the remainder of the year, but we noticed this morning that we have another bird trying to nest.  Oh what fun!

Baby Week {Part 1}

I think it's officially going to be baby week on my blog.  I have had so many adorable babies in front of my camera.  I have some serious catching up to do!
