Friday Photo Journal - February 12, 2016

Thursday, February 11, 2016

So, last week I had a whole slew of photos to share with you and this week I've got squat. Truth is, I have only picked up my camera once this week and that was during a mentoring session last Sunday. The rest of the week was consumed with homeschooling, cheerleading practice, basketball, Girl Scout meetings, home improvement work on the house and very little else. So, I have a random smattering of images to post and not much noteworthy to share. I had hoped to fuel the flames of inspiration this winter and get really creative with shooting all sorts of things in my "off" season. But, I have had trouble finding the motivation. I'm much more prone to hibernation in the winter. 

Got to play with my favorite munchkin who was a model for my mentoring session.

Also played with some sun flare just because it's cool and I didn't have to get cold to do it. Even though this image breaks all kinds of rules, I still kind of dig it. 
It's got a groovy kind of I-don't-care-gonna-let-my-light-shine-bright vibe. 

And I'm totally cheating with these, but I'm gonna post them anyway because I forgot to when I took them in November.  I'll call them Valentine's roses. ;)




So what's kept you busy this week?

Happy First Friday of February! Say that fives times fast, lol. I hope you have all had a great week! We enjoyed some spring-like weather this week and so I took the kids out for an impromptu field trip to the park. We rarely have time for stuff like that when I'm busy with work (spring though fall). So, when I saw the forecast for 70 degrees,  I figured I'd better jump at the chance while I had it. It was a wild and windy day - my favorite kind - so the kids had fun running around, up and down a big hill, and I had fun capturing all that joy. Here are a few that I have edited so far. 











What was the highlight of your week?

This week kind of threw me for a loop. Lots going on and all I want to do is hibernate. We have been busy with basketball, cheerleading, Girl Scout cookie peddling and school, among other things. Oh yes, and snow! We didn't get as much as most that were hit by the storm but we got some wild weather and enough for the kids to play in. How about you?










Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful weekend!

I hope it has been a great week for you! I feel like I haven't accomplished much this week, but I was able to spend more time on family matters, which is important. We started basketball & cheerleading for three of my kiddos and the first game was last weekend. It was so much fun to see them in action. My little man was on fire and scored the most points in the game. Not a bad way to start the season! 

Other than kids activities, there was just lots of puppy training, laundry washing, homeschooling, etc., etc., etc. I did manage a few short photo sessions with the kids though. 
I haven't shot for a client in almost 3 weeks and it has been a nice break. But I do have a wedding this weekend, so I will be back in action on Saturday - after the games. ;)

What have you been up to?













Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful weekend!!

Hey, it's Friday again! Time to recap the week. Actually, I have no idea where this week has gone. Back to homeschooling, trying to finish up wedding galleries from last year, trying to get reorganized and tax-prepped for biz 2016...and just generally trying to keep up with life with 4 kids and 3 pups has left me exhausted. I think I am still recovering from a 2015 hangover. Last year was so jam-packed and I am utterly depleted. Hence that late posting, once again....I'm sorry!

Here are a couple of pics I took over the week, but honestly, I didn't pick up my camera much. I hope your year is off to a bright start! I'm working to pull myself up by the bootstraps for 2016. I'll get there. Sooner than later, I hope!



Thanks for visiting! How was your week?

Happy Friday friends and welcome to 2016! Hard to believe another year has come and gone. It almost feels like I'm sitting on a train watching my life whiz by. It seems to go faster and faster and all I want to do it hit the pause button.

In this last post of 2015, I am sharing a few images I took this week when I finally eeked out a little time for some personal shooting, along with a video compilation of our holiday celebration this year.



2015 was a year of growth, struggle, change, success and a whole lotta stress. Honestly, I had hoped the year would be more golden than it was for me. But it was a stepping stone and a necessary building block to where I hope to take my business and where we, as a family, hope to go. I worked hard. Really hard to build something substantial, and while I did not reach all of my goals, I reached many and that is worth celebrating.

I had hoped to find a better balance between work, family, and personal growth. While I did manage to balance the scales a bit better than the year before, I fell short in coming to any real solution. However, I am sincerely grateful for all of the opportunities, the support and the love that 2015 afforded me. And I am very appreciate of your continued support here as I find my way through the struggles of parenting, homeschooling, business building and mid-life.

I wish you all much joy, love, peace and prosperity in 2016. Happy New Year!
