Calm







I've never really tried water drop photos before but I always loved the way they looked. They always seem so calming and you can almost hear the plopping sound of the drop.

It is a messy experiment (for me anyway) but I am going to have to attempt it again cause there are a couple of things I would do different. These still turned out pretty cool though!.

Someday



Someday he will learn how to wear his glasses correctly...I hope. He looks so old to me here. I mean he has always looked older then his age but for some reason especially here. I have to remind myself that he is only seven.

Green Eyes

Honey you are the sea, upon which I float



I love that song by Coldplay. Did you know that only 2% of the worlds population have green eyes and it's the least common color among humans. That's a little bit of random knowledge for my blogging friends.

I <3 Heather(One for the peanut gallery)

Ok so some of you have probably seen my friend Heather on here before. Here she is testing the light for me a year or so ago (dude your hair was long then!)




Anyways I was taking her sisters family pictures and I just snapped this of the little one when I think we were moving locations just cause he was cracking me up dancing.




He's so gangsta! When I sent the picture to Heather at work she said he looked so much like Uncle Rico(Napoleon Dynamite). Five minutes later I received this:








Best day of my life!!! That is some serious talent with the paint program, check out that ring!

I countered with this but I have nowhere near her skills.



Good times...cause you know we are like 12 :)

Perfection

Sometimes we strive so hard for perfection that we forget that imperfection is happiness
~Karen Nave



To the eye this picture is far from perfection....but to my heart it speaks volumes.

It wasn't a planned shot I was just taking pictures of Keaton, really just playing when Blaze wandered out and sat beside him and kissed him. That just doesn't happen. They love each other. I know that but sometimes I wonder if they are too far apart in age to be good friends and I hate thinking that.

There is just something in this shot though. Something about the kiss. Something about the arm around his little brother in a seemingly protective manner. Something about the look in Keatons eyes..just something that tells me they will always be there for each other.

I love every single imperfection in this picture.

S'up Dudes



Keats just reminds me of a surfer type guy. Not in attitude (so not laid back) but just in looks. <3 him!

Moose



My nephew Brody is getting so big!! If you recall I tried to get the nickname Brodster started but it looks like everyone settled on Moose lol. It's a completely affectionate term and I love it.

Just a quick picture from his 9 month shoot, plenty more to come. I am so behind on my blogging. I still have other sessions to post including Blaze's 7th bday pictures(ok, ok I still have to take those too). I was having some computer problems but hopefully all is good now.

1.4 Baby!

So I thought I love my nifty 50...well I still do. There is no denying it is a great lens for the price. But I finally upgraded to the 50 1.4, and now I know what love is (when it comes to 50mm lenses lol) I lurve it.

These were just taken real quick at 1.4 because well I can now. I know that's not the the ap I will use most (or probably even often) but it's so nice to have as an option. It is super sharp and just feels so different.

My subject...erm I mean son... had just woken up from a nap and is in serious need of a haircut but I still think he is oh so cute.



I wasn't really worried about shadows or color here just taking some snaps to see what my new friend could do.

Keaton is so obsessed with Ghostbusters right now...I mean obsessed. They are almost always in his hands.



Even Blaze approves of the lens.

Hello Blue Eyes



You can try to hide but it's not going to work with peepers like that.



Can it really be true that I have been taking your pictures for two years now. That you have gone from this:



to this:



And I thought my kids were growing up fast.
