Anakin was with me of course when I was doing Amelia's birthday pictures so I also shot a few of him. Today I finally had time to crop/edit a few more pictures and did a couple of Anakin to share. His birthday is a month away and then it will be time to get a bunch more of him.

I experimented with some textures with this one and I like how it came out.

More Pictures from Mia's Birthday

Today we are having Amelia's birthday party. Really it's just some cake and ice cream with her Memom, aunt and uncle and cousins coming. She's excited though.

Last night in between baking her birthday cake and watching a show on Punkin Chunkin on onDemand I edited a couple more shots of Mia.

This first one was taken in line waiting to pick Anakin up from school (again). She was being cute and the camera was in the car so who could resist? I can't decide if I like her eyes in it or not. Mainly she looks a little crazy I think and that could be caused by the reflection of my orange shirt.
This next shot was taken at the old caboose in town. It's gotten a new coat of paint recently and I knew it would be fun place to shoot. The first one is the straight picture and the next is some editing I was experimenting with and shared with Pioneer Woman's assignment group.

Birthday Girl!

Today was Mia's third birthday. It's hard to believe that my baby, my youngest is three years old already. I look at her and wonder where my chunky baby went and how she got so big. She's a funny, sweet girl full of attitude, too smart for her own good (and mine!) and I love her.

This afternoon I took her out to get a couple of birthday pictures and these were the first ones that caught my eye.

I was featured

on a post at I Heart Faces! How cool! :) The post is about their network and all the great people that post there and all the wonderful pictures that have been shared, and they chose my butterfly picture to feature with eleven others!

Pouty Face

Yesterday while waiting in line to pick up the kids from school, I got out my camera and was playing (again) with the manual settings. Mia was sitting in her car seat wearing one of her many hats and was a somewhat willing subject for me (meaning she's strapped in her seat and can't run away! LOL). I even got her to look at me a couple of times so I'm counting it as a success.

I got a few shots that weren't too bad but this one just makes me chuckle.

This weekend we had a yard sale and were up early, early, early to set up. Bad for my need for sleep but good for fun photo opportunities.

The morning was cool, but not cold and there was a thin layer of fog hovering low. I couldn't resist grabbing my camera and shooting the sunrise.


About Me

My photo
I'm a SAHM that loves photography. My kids are my main models but they're on to me and have started running in the opposite direction of me and my camera. Well, all but the youngest. She's a ham. To compensate I take pictures of just about everything else from flowers and bugs, to landscapes and anything else that will sit still. And I share it all here because I might as well do something with it. :)
