Oh, my goodness, what a joy it was to photograph these beautiful twin boys. They were so sweet and sleepy and snuggly. I always tell my husband, photographing newborns is an occupational hazard, because it makes me want to have another! I enjoyed my time with this lovely family so much.  As you can see in the last photo, these boys are surrounded by love from their two older sisters.

Andrea & Joe, congratulations to you both. I’ll be in touch real soon.

I hope you had a blessed Easter with your family and loved ones. We enjoyed lots of egg hunts despite the rain.

It’s Friday again and that  means another photographic prompt for myself and the 17 other photographers who are on this year-long journey to interpret various themes in our photographs. This week’s theme was time of day. I loved that there were limitless ways to interpret and photograph this theme. Originally I was going to photograph our morning routine, but since the boys are on vacation this week, our morning activities have been slightly altered. I therefore chose to photograph a favorite part of my day…

the time when that sweet Starbucks coffee is delivered to my hands! Yep, I’m a Starbucks junkie. It is a highlight of my day.

Now you can visit Clinton, Mississippi family photographer, Shea to see how she interpreted ‘time of day’ in her photography!

Goodness, we love our sweet Maisy so much! Although we have had her only since January, it feels like she has been part of our world forever. I cannot imagine not having her sweet face to greet me in the morning or her wagging tail when I walk into the house after being our for a bit. It is true that there really is nothing quite like a dog.

This week my fellow photographers and I that are taking this year-long photographic journey were challenged to photograph money. And, it was a special week for us as this little guy lost his first tooth. The Tooth Fairy must have been really excited that he lost his first tooth because she left him $5.00.  This little boy was very happy indeed!

Now, you can enjoy seeing what the other photographers in this group photographed for the money theme. Here is a link to the fabulous, Shea!

I love black and white photography, so this week’s theme for myself and the 17 other photographers on this year-long photo journey was perfect. My sweet middle son and I had a little photo shoot the other day.

He is my prince.

I love him so.

If you enjoy black and white photography as much as I do, you will love to see what the other photographers in our group captured this week. You can begin by visiting the fabulous, Sarah.

 

Each Friday, I am joining 17 fellow photographers in photographing a specific theme. The theme for this week is food. I just love photographing food and for some reason, I usually gravitate towards photographing sweets. Sweet treats are often colorful and have wonderful texture, making them the perfect photographic subjects. With Easter just around the corner, I decided to photograph Peeps…an Easter staple for me. Even though, I don’t like eating them, I do love how they look and they bring back lots of memories from Easter Sundays when I was a child. For the most part, my boys don’t like them either, but they know the Easter bunny will still put them in their baskets!

Continue to see how the other photographers in our group photographed food by visiting the wonderfully talented, Jenn and keep blog hopping from there.
