A Labor of Love

Photo projects. I love them. I really, really love them. I don’t care if they’re high quality photos shot with my DSLR or a crappy cell phone pic taken on the fly. I love them…and almost every single time, I get to a point during the midst of them that I think what in the world […]

The Monday Snapshot – Photo Books & Long Walks

So I finally got motivated to catch up on my photo albums, and the 2011 Yearbook is done! I might do a couple of last minute tweaks before printing (I’m not a huge fan of the cover photo for instance), but for the most part, it’s ready to print, which is a HUGE relief for me. […]

10 Month Outtakes

Stella turned 10 months old on Monday, but I hadn’t had a chance to take my monthly photo of her in the glider with her Stella doll until this morning. This photo project is definitely getting harder and harder as she gets more mobile. Here are a few of the outtake shots from this month! 🙂

Fall Colors

I just wrote a quick post on my family blog about our weekend, but I also wanted to throw up a couple of pics before I forget that I took last Wednesday when Stella and I were driving around. She actually fell asleep on the way home from the grocery store, so I just kept […]

#FMSphotoaday – September

This was my first real attempt at doing the photo a day challenge that Fat Mum Slim puts on each month. I only missed one day (drat!), and it’s been fun to look over my pictures from the last month. Sorry to those of you who have already seen all of these!

What I did today…

A good girlfriend of mine came over today and took a few pics for me as an early baby shower gift. We’re going to do a few more when I’m a little further along that include the hubby, but here’s a sneak peek of what we did so far! I love them. 🙂

Fall Colors

This time of year is so bizarre as far as temperatures go – it’s been down to 30s and 40s in the mornings but then creeps up to the 70s and low 80s in the afternoons. That is unseasonably warm for us at this time of year (especially because we’re at 7-8,000′ in elevation). Remember […]

Another Beautiful Wedding

Yesterday some good friends of ours got married in their back yard about 5 miles down the road from our place. C graduated high school with the groom, and the bride (as well as the maid of honor) are two of my good girlfriends. The bride is originally from Columbia, but she and her parents […]

The Color Balance of the World

I’m not sure how well this will translate, but a few days ago we had the weirdest green/blue hue to the sky. A rainstorm had just come through, and the whole world looked…well, green. I don’t think this picture does it justice (plus I wish I would’ve gone out with my camera five minutes earlier […]

The Best of Sisters… and a Brother too. :-)

I don’t think I’ve ever posted these on here before, and I was feeling sentimental about my sisters earlier (we’re all super close), so I decided today was a good day to do it. 🙂 Each year we do a photo shoot loosely inspired by these images of the Brown Sisters. Have you checked out […]


So far today: *my husband made me breakfast and woke me up when it was ready (biscuits & gravy, his fav not mine, but it was still sweet of him *grin*)*we took a nice walk with our dog (who never gets walks, the poor thing)*my real estate showings were cancelled (which was fine by me […]

Day 25 – Photo that inspires me / reason I believe I’m alive today

Day 25 → a photo that inspires you. I can’t remember if I ever posted these pics from Norway, but I figured even if I did, they deserve a re-post because they’re awesome and they make me happy. Also, the reason I was in Norway was to visit my youngest sister who was in college […]

Christmas Tree Montage

I just had to link to this video montage that my friend E at Many Many Moons posted of them putting up their Christmas tree. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea and hope to do something similar someday. Check it out!

Christmas Cards from Shutterfly!

Whohoo!!! It’s that time of year again – Christmas cards! Ever since childhood, I’ve loved this time of year. Being the oldest of five kids, Mom had a built in assembly line, so when it was time to send out Christmas cards, one person would have the job of folding the letter, one would stuff […]

Wordless Wednesday – Fall Colors and Parental Visits

Where’s Elmo? 🙂 A country road near our home…  Kasey (left) is a MN dog now who doesn’t have to be tied up anymore! Chief is still with us in CO. In our backyard with my parents. Thanks for visiting!! <3

Wordless Wednesday – Another Beautiful Mountain Wedding

WHY does Blogger turn pictures?! This is at the rehearsal dinner. The Wedding Site Photo Courtesy of the Groom’s Facebook. 🙂

Wordless Wednesday – Lovin’ the New Camera

FYI – the spec top/right is actually on the mirror I was facing while taking this picture.

BBS#1LA – Group Pics

I’m sure I’ll be posting a few different sets of pictures from last weekend. In the meantime, be sure to check out Jamie’s blog for pics of the house we stayed in. Total old Hollywood – we absolutely loved it. Thank you Junket Juice for hooking us up!!!

Wordless Wednesday – Rafting E to D Last Weekend

Foto Fun Friday Week 2 – Secret Shoppers

Yeah, I know, I already forgot about Foto Fun last Friday, but this week I’m on top of it! Being Secret Shoppers is Hard Work! So a week or so again, a woman I know in the area called and asked if I could be a Secret Shopper at the new brewpub she is managing […]

The Ups & Downs of a Day

I’m struggling lately with knowing what to post about. I’d love to post about the amazing Quantum Healer I spoke with on Monday evening, but it’s so bizarre and out there and hard to explain that I don’t know where to begin. I’m trying to wrap my head around putting a post together about it. […]

DSLR Dreamin’

I really really really want to buy a DSLR (possibly a Rebel T1i)and hopefully move more into photography as a business someday (sooner rather than later in dreams), and when I do, I want to take this class. We almost used this guy as our wedding photographer, and I’ve heard lots of wonderful things about his […]

Foto Fun Friday Week 1 – Summer Nights

Jill over at Happy Hopefuls had a great idea to document some of the random pictures taken with her phone in a Friday series of pictures. Hope you don’t mind Jill, but I’m jumping on your bandwagon! I just loaded my phone pics onto the computer and was surprised to see I had nearly 50 pictures […]

Maternity Photo Series

I think that this guy (Matt) is an amazing photographer, and I’ve spent hours wandering around on his site, Pacing The Panic Room. I just love the pregnancy series he just completed and hope to do something similar to it myself some day. Check it out!
