Snuggles

I was doing so well in January! February hit and it seems I fell off the planet. Unfortunately last week was a struggle for me and I don't think I picked up my camera at all. And there was no editing of what I had waiting on my hard drive either. I need to just breathe and get back to what I love.

Taken a few weeks ago and it sums it up for me...snuggles help fix everything!

Surprise party

Last month I was asked to photograph a surprise party. It was for a friend and her daughter really wanted me to do it. I am NOT a flash person. I don't like flash because it (usually) causes harsh shadows. But I also know that it's needed in some cases...this being one of them since it was being held at a hotel. I borrowed my brothers "good" flash (mine's just a small one) and studied up on the "best" ways to handle low light and use flash to compliment. I think they turned out great, and won't be so "afraid" to take a job that will require flash again. These are a few of my favorites. (The one's where they are dancing, it was completely dark, other than the music (colored) lights.

And then it was time for bed!

It was nice to catch up with everyone that we haven't seen in a while. We "see" a lot of them on Facebook, but it's so much nicer to be able to sit down and talk. Until next time friends!

A Memory

8 years ago this month, the week we were moving to TN,
we lost a dear friend/neighbor to a terrible disease. He
had these flowers growing in his yard and he HATED them!
Every spring they would pop up and he'd dig his yard up,
trying to get rid of them. And every August, they would
return, almost as if to say "nana, nana, boo boo, you
can't get rid of us"...so after we moved here, I saw
them pop up and it was a great memory. Several years
later when I noticed them again, I found out they were
called Resurrection Lilies...and boy did I laugh. For
as much as he tried digging them up, God always prevailed!
What a lesson...and he's up in heaven just having a fit,
because they're blooming again! Thanks for the memories
Bob!
