Happy Friday all! It has been an interesting week. We had a blizzard last weekend with temps in the teens and 8" of snow that lasted about 4-5 days. Today it was 68 degrees with a balmy breeze. We went straight from winter to spring in about 48 hours. I wish the warm weather would stick around, but that probably won't happened for a couple more months.

Of course we spent time out enjoying the snow! It's rare to have so much of it here. The kids built forts, made snowmen, pummeled each other with snowballs and did a bit of sledding. They also drank about 5 gallons of hot chocolate. There are no hills around here, but we packed the snow in over the steps to the deck to build a ramp. I even took a few turns on it (and fortunately didn't break anything)! It was fun to be a kid again. :)






How was your week? Did you get snow too?

By the way, if you are looking for a little photography inspo, my lovely and dear friend Gina, at Kleinworth & Co. is hosting a fun creative challenge on Instagram with daily prompts. Find here feed here to play along. I'll admit that I am terrible at keeping up with daily prompts, but I am gonna do my best to participate as often as I can!

Happy New Year friends! I plan to keep plugging along with Friday Photo Journal throughout 2017. I hope to focus more on personal work this year. I would love for you to continue to join me here each week!

By the end of each fall season I'm totally burned out from shooting so many sessions, so the winter brings a welcome lull. I have high hopes of participating in a freelensing P52 this year as well. We'll see how I do come summer when life speeds up. What about you? Do you have any creative projects in the works?

Here are a few frames from this week:






 We're expecting a good dumping of snow - a rare occasion around here. The kids can't wait. :)

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! I am still sorting and editing our Christmas celebration pics. I'm a bit behind but will be back tomorrow and update this post.  (I wanted to get the linky up so you can share your shots from this week.) Can you believe it's all over and 2017 is nearly here?


Updated to add: I have sorted through many less than stellar Christmas photos and have a few more to share. I was operating on little sleep and frankly, my personal shots tend to be just snapshots. I'd rather spend time enjoying the day and being present, not trying to create amazing images. Though exhausting, it was a fun holiday with lots of family time, tons of great food and happy memories made. One can't ask for more than that.




What have you been up to lately? Please link up your posts below and have a safe and very Happy New Year!! Thank you for visiting. <3 p="">

Ready or not here it comes! I can hardly believe Christmas is upon us and this year is all but over. This week was a welcomed break from the norm around here. We baked cookies, wrapped gifts, watched Christmas movies, attended a party, had family visit from out of town - it was busy, but not in the frantic overloaded way in which we normally operate. Just full and fun.  I'm not quite ready for Christmas to be here. I still have lots to do and I would really rather have more time to relax and enjoy the season - but it's just a blink away! So, I will soak up every second that I can.

I want to thank you all for visiting and participating in the FPJ link up this year! I hope you have many treasured memories to look back on from 2016.  I would love to hear about how you plan to use your photos. I plan to tackle organizing my personal images and creating a few photo books with the shots I've taken this year. The kids always love thumbing through them from time to time, and I do too! What do you do with all of the images you take?

I wish you all a wonderful happy holiday weekend!

Happy Friday all! This week was a bit more relaxing around here - thankfully. I am finally over the huge deluge of work and have buttoned up all of the sessions I have shot. Only one wedding remains to edit - yay! I do have sessions scheduled next week, but I am officially caught up and SO relieved.

We baked cookies twice this week and worked on some gifts the kids could make for family and friends. I didn't shoot much this week, but did bring my camera out to play with the Christmas lights for a few minutes while Little Miss painted her birdhouse. I'm looking forward to a weekend off - yay! The first in months! More family projects, and holiday festivities to come. :)


What are your plans for the weekend?

Happy Friday! Another week down and holy time warp, Christmas is coming so soon! I can't believe it. I have been chained to my desk editing and it feels like life is passing me by.

Little Miss was chomping at the bit to bake Christmas cookies, so I did take a break to bake some gingerbread cookies. Not from scratch (shame), but the girls had fun decorating them nonetheless. I snapped a few quick shots of our brief baking adventure and that's about all I have captured this week. I am nearing the end of my editing marathon and I can't wait to be free!!!

How has your week been?


Thank you for visiting! Have a fantastic weekend. :)
