Lovin’ This Lens!

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Lately I’ve been drooling over the 135mm f/2.0 L lens and today I was able to get my hands on one to play with. I will try to get some more shots with it tomorrow but so far I was able to take a few of the kiddos in the front yard and I’m already totally convinced I gotta have it! This lens is super sweet!

The kids LOVE this swing!

I can’t believe how big my Maddie Pants is getting!!!

I have no idea what he was pointing at but apparently it was serious! No smile for him!

That’s better :-)

Sew Sew Sewing!

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Remember I said I liked to sew? Well ever since I got my serger a few weeks ago I’ve been totally addicted! It also helped that I hit the jackpot one night when I went to Joann’s and they happened to be closing that store! All their fabric was 75% and I got a HUGE amount (and a few supplies) for an amazing price! I came home and bought a pattern online and went to town! I don’t have a ton to post right now but I have a few more things (off the top of my head) I plan on making and I will photograph them when I do. For now, here’s a dress that I made for some friends’ little girl (Lily got to model it and I didn’t feel like narrowing them down so I posted a few! The last one is my FAVORITE!) I listed on Etsy, so if you like the dress and want one I’ll make one for you!





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
