me & mine july 2012.

July 19, 2012

This is something I have wanted to do forever. As the photographer in the family, it never seems that we are all together for any photos. But, this me & mine project helped me to change that. Our sweet neighbor who is going off to college soon to study photography took some photos for me last night. And of course, it involved drama and frustration and children misbehaving, but these photos are priceless to me. I love how Jackson and Sean are laughing in so many of the photos. The old saying, ‘other things may change us, but we start and end with family’ is definitely true.

To continue through our circle of photographers, you can begin by visiting by dear friend and incredibly talented photographer, Jules TrandemĀ | San Diego Family Photographer.

beautiful family.

I loved every second I spent with this family. The children’s eyes are so expressive and without even trying, they gave me the most beautiful glimpses into who they really are. That’s why to me, photography is magical.

Each year, a summer highlight for us is Old Home Days. The boys love to ride on the rides, eat ice cream and fried dough and play lots of games. This year Luke had a ‘perfect game’ at I GOT IT. That means he got five in a row with his first five ball tosses. We were all very excited for him.

This tiny and adorable cocker spaniel puppy is a new addition to our friends’ home. She is precious and we had so much fun photographing her today.

I love Instagram and that the wonderful camera on my i-phone allows me to capture the day-to-day moments that might otherwise be forgotten.

summer nights.

July 5, 2012

For our project 26 this week, we were to photograph our summer evenings. Really, is there anything better than summer nights? I love the lack of schedules, the staying up late, the popsicle eating, the swinging on swings, the going for ice cream, the catching fireflies, the pure joy of being outside and watching the sun go down. I love everything about summer nights. To continue through our circle, please visit my friend, Misty Setzler to see how she spends her summer evenings.
