Hi friends! So sorry for the late posting of this week's link up. The past few days have had me driving long treks to sessions. I came home last night exhausted, with SD cards to load and kids to put to bed.    Anyway, it has been a busy week and I worked most of last weekend, but we did manage to enjoy some fun over the holiday weekend. We headed to my mom's for a bbq and some swimming. The kids were brave enough to venture into the cold water and had a blast, but came out with blue lips.  I just dipped my toes in. The weather was gorgeous, but the water was just too chilly yet for me! I think I'll wait a couple of weeks for my first swim of the season. ;)  I did not take my camera to the pool so that I could just relax and enjoy my family. 
I did take the girls downtown on a scouting trip last week though and after a quick 30 minute trek, I came to the conclusion that I need to venture downtown to shoot more often! Today I'm sharing a few shots we took in the city.














How was your week?

 Friday Photo Journal

 I just love strawberry season! When I was a kid my mom used to take us out of school early one afternoon in May and take us strawberry picking. I ate my weight in berries and rode home with red fingers and stained lips. I looked forward to it every year! 
This week I ventured out with the kids to pick some berries at a local farm. It was tons of fun to get out of our ordinary routine and enjoy a little outdoor adventure. Though it was a hot, humid day, the kids loved visiting the farm animals and taking a hay ride. We brought home a bounty of beautiful ripe berries too - yum! We have since enjoyed smoothies, shortcake, ice cream topped with berries and my fave - sliced berries and cream. What's your favorite berry recipe?

Happy Friday all! What's been cookin' this week? I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I was treated to a homemade breakfast, some lovely gifts, and a fantastic lunch with my sisters, nieces and nephew, brother-in-law, Mom and stepdad, and my own sweet family. It was such a treat to spend the afternoon together. I have no photos from the day as I wanted to just enjoy it as a mom and leave the camera at home. But here are my pics from the week:

Happy Friday all! I hope it's been a great week for you. I apologize for posting late. It seems someone hacked my google email account and I had some cleaning up to do. :/  (Why is the world so crazy? It seems we have to have our guard up at every turn - lately it's been a bit disheartening. I guess all we can do it protect our own and try not to let the negativity rule us. I always tell myself that when the world feels ugly it needs more love. Even when we feel we have none to give, that's the time to dig deep and love more.)  Ok, sorry, on to the photos! Here are a few from yesterday. My boy was in a mood and needed to do a little cooling off. I think sprinkler bokeh is my new favorite thing. Ha!











Again, I apologize for the delay in getting the linky up this week! I wish you all a wonderful Mother's Day weekend filled with love and hugs!! Here's a little Mother's Day tribute I created. Enjoy! XXOO

Hi there friends! Happy May Day! It has been a super busy week of work and I haven't had time for much else unfortunately. I shot a wedding and a session last weekend and cranked out 6 galleries this week, with two more to go. 

So, I haven't taken many photos other than for work. I only have two to share this week. The first was taken with my Fuji Instant camera and sent to my grandmother in her birthday card. I snapped a quick phone pic before sending it off. ( I love the Fuji but the odd placement of the view finder trips me up every time, lol. My insta-compositions need work. ;) The second was taken last weekend when Little Miss was the last one to rise. That girl is growing so much! We took her training wheels off of her bike this week and she took off with no problem. She has no trouble keeping up with the rest of the gang, that's for sure!

What have you been up to this week?

36,500 Days around the Sun

Monday, April 27, 2015

My beautiful grandmother celebrated her 100th birthday over the weekend. I put together a photo album and a short video with images and keepsakes that the family collected over the years. I truly enjoyed digging into our family history and taking a trip down memory lane to create these gifts for my grandmother.

I am absolutely in awe of her strength and grace. She amazes me every day! What a beautiful, full life she has led. I regret that I was unable to attend the celebration in person, but I was most definitely there in spirit. And I'm thankful that she was able to celebrate surrounded by many family members and friends.

Unfortunately, I do not have all of the names to give proper credit for these beautiful images, but I wanted to share a few here. I would be glad to give full credit to whomever may claim their creation.



Happy 100th birthday Mimi!! Love you bunches!
