all four in school together… a mini backyard shoot to document it.

  I really can’t believe all four of these loves are in elementary school together. We used to talk about how cool it was going to be that they had a few years all together in school… that day has come.  I did not plan on crying, but I ended up tearing up as we watched Matt walk in with his […]

letters to my children : jon

I wrote this letter many months ago but haven’t had a chance to post it. For that reason the photos don’t really match the letter, but I’m posting it anyway. I love the letter, I love the photos and above all I love the sweet boy that they showcase. I had every intention of going […]

project 365 : june favorites

I hope you had a wonderful New Years! I took a little break from my computer over the last few days and it felt so refreshing. It’s amazing how easy it is to form a habit and then how easy it is to break it. On Friday I logged off and told myself that I […]

new year, new goals | project 365 complete

I know we say it every year, but it really is amazing how fast this year flew by isn’t it? I thought that doing a daily project would cause the year to go by at a snails pace, but it was just the opposite. I am thankful for so much this past year. Life is […]

admin - Heather, thank you so much friend! Your sweet words mean a lot!!

Heather - So I just have to say, because its in my nature, that I have watched you over the years go from a great photographer to a phenomenal one! You know me and my weird photography fetish… I love looking at pictures. I have to say, without a shadow of a doubt that you have the best pictures I have ever seen! Way to push yourself and grow into the photographer you knew you could be!! I feel like you couldn’t get better because of how good you are, but I know you will prove me wrong and blow everyone away!!!

admin - Wow Lindsay, you seriously made my night! What an honor to read these words from you and I am so thankful for your love and support! I am so happy that I can be an encouragement to you and for you to let me know that is huge, thank you! I really hope we get to meet someday too!!

I am so excited for you and your journey this next year and you are totally going about it the right way, no pressure but just enjoying the challenge. I used my phone a few times during the year and knowing that my “rules” for myself were flexible it didn’t stress me out. Life gets in the way and it’s okay to let it.

I can’t wait to follow you on your journey. Happy New Year to you as well! Hugs.

admin - Thank you so much Emily, thank you for your support it really means so much! Happy New Year to you!

Emily - I have really loved following your photos on Facebook! I have done a 365 myself and it is hard work but I grew so much! Really love all of the favourites you’ve picked here, gorgeous.

Lindsay - Linsey, I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed your images this year, but perhaps this will help: I “liked” a lot of photographers at the beginning of this year in the hopes that I would be inspired and get ideas. But I found that I would get discouraged seeing so many good shots. I would think, “ugh, I’m not as good as that, why do I even try?” So I “unliked” almost all of the photographers I was following. But I never unliked you because I loved your pictures so much, and for whatever reason, they never made me feel discouraged, but just the opposite. They made me feel inspired. I think it was partially because you just photographed your every day life, and the photos looked so natural and happy. Also we seem to have a lot in common and I feel that we are sort of photographer kindred spirits. I am secretly hoping we get to meet someday. Your kids look like so much fun and I loved getting a glimpse into your life.

Also, you have inspired me to do my own project 365. I am going to try to do as many with my camera as possible but I’m gonna use my iPod for the days that I just miss it. and I’m planning on posting on my blog each week the images I took. I love that there is so much flexibility with a project like this.

I can honestly say I loved every one of your images that you took, and I always enjoyed seeing them. Thank you for doing this project and sharing it with us. You are one of my very favourite photographers and I hope you will keep posting now and then!

A very happy new year to you and your beautiful family!

survival of the nutcracker

We were a bit late on getting the decorations up this year, I was starting to feel like Scrooge. We played catch-up this weekend and finally decided to get into the Christmas spirit. Matthew was most intrigued with the nutcrackers. He found out that nutcrackers do not have superhero flexibility and cannot survive in action. […]
