Beautiful Black & White

Our kids…. in black & white!  Emma, Miles, Jack and Chloe allow me about one (and barely that) cooperative group photoshoot a year and this is my favorite image from that shoot. Precious to me and I hope you like it!

The folks at I Heart Faces are changing up their photo challenge in new and exciting ways. Check out this link to read all the details. or to enter your own B&W face photo!

I Heart Faces… Oh so Silly!

This Oh so Silly toddler is my granddaughter, Audrey. During this photo shoot, all of the lollipops were wrapped except one. This photo captures her joy when she finally found the one that was good for licking! =)


Head on over to I Heart Faces so catch all the wonderfully silly photos being posted this week!

Rock The Shot September Photo Challenge: Backlighting

This is the first time I’ve entered a photo challenge at Rock the Shot but when I saw what the theme was, I knew I had to give it a try. I’ve spent a good amount of time lately trying to learn to get a decent backlit or sunflare shot and this is my favorite, so far. I found this interesting tree and asked Emma (my 13 year old) to climb up there. I snapped this shot to check the lighting and when I saw it on the camera… I fell in love! I tried several more shots but this one was still the winner.

It’s so embarrassing to say that I haven’t updated my blog in three months. Life just got in the way, again. I saw that this week’s challenge at I Heart Faces is “White”.- not black and white but white featured in a color photo. I just had to take the time to enter this photo of my brand new, precious as can be, grandson. Introducing, Gavin Scott…
