My Alter Ego

Friday, January 28th, 2011

So… obviously I LOVE photography, but there’s a side of me that most don’t know. It’s the I MUST do something creative or I will go out of my mind! side. :-p For the most part, while I have this huge passion for anything creative, I also have a huge mental BLOCK. The two together and very ugly and quite frustrating! Lol. Sometimes I see things that inspire me and I think, “I can do that!” so I give it a whirl. Sometimes they works, sometimes they don’t. A few things I have found that I like and CAN do are: sew, make headbands for my little ladies, and somewhat crochet :-) Lately I’ve had a lot of fun with the first two and I’ve listed a few headbands on my Etsy page if you guys wanna check ‘emout! I don’t have anything I’ve sewn on there yet but I hope to change that very soon, as I just got a serger and can now make things I’d actually be proud to sell, lol.


This will probably be the most boring “photo blog” ever since it will lack actual photos, but I will cut to the chase and give you my Etsy account link (which you can now find above in my navigation bar above also!)


No shoo! Go check out the few things I have on there and maybe grab yourself or your little girl something!

Snow Day!

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Today was the first real snow we’ve had this season and the kiddos all got to stay home from school (technically yesterday, since it’s after midnight as I’m posting this). I waited until the sun was down enough to not blare them in the faces and then bundled them up and went out for a few. Lily spent the entire time picking the snow up and eating it while Trent ran around, made a snow angel and kept trying to get Lily to have a snowball fight (she couldn’t have cared any less about anything other than eating the snow though!)

I’ve been playing with some different editing colors, so let me know what you think about these. Sometimes I have a hard time straying from “normal” colors, but I’ve been trying to edit outside of my usual box lately. These aren’t too dramatic, but a little different for me :-)

*EDIT: Looking at them on the black blog, they actually don’t look much different at all. When looking at them on white though, you can see the yellow tint.

I seem to get more closed-eyes shots than open sometimes!

He was so excited to make the snow angel!

She was showing me her snow bites :-)

Sooooooo Trent!

… and again!

She actually had the funniest chunk of snow on her face and right when I got the shot it fell. Oh well.

On her way in, of course she fell and got snow all over her :-p

Still Here!

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Hiya guys! I just wanted to leave a quick note to let everyone know I am still here! I have had lots of shoots and editing galore for the past 6 weeks or so and I’m SO swamped! I love it! Between that and the holidays, I haven’t had time to post any blogs but they are uh-coming! As soon as I get a day or so to really sit down and post some blogs, I totally will! I’m excited to show off some of my newest stuff!


I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It’s getting colder out there so get in your shoots while you can and hurry back in to bundle up!
