It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.


What I've Been Up To Lately...

...Photo shoots! I've had five so far and have had a lot of fun doing it! Every single kid I've photographed has been sooo cute! :D Since I'm a "natural light" photographer, we've conducted the "sessions" in front of the barn behind our house (hey, it makes a nice rustic backdrop :D), in front of our whitewashed picket fence, and in my grandparent's garden. Oh, and one down by the pond, too. :)'s a selection of some of my favorite shots from each shoot!

Photo Session 1:
Look at those blue eyes...I do believe that this little man is going to have young maidens heaving heartfelt sighs one day! :D
Isn't she wearing the sweetest outfit? :)

Photo Session 2:
Look at those beautiful curls! :D

By the fish pool...

Photo Session 3:

Another little man with stunning blue eyes!

Smiling sweetly!

Photo Session 4:

My li'l twin cousins...aren't they sweet? :D

"Sleeping Beauty"

And "Sleeping Handsome" ;)

Photo Session 5:

LOL I just love this expression!

Posing prettily!

And that's all, folks! I had many more that I wanted to share, but that would accumulate to quite a lot of photos! :)
Have a great night!

Thanks a bunch, Stacie! I really enjoyed my visit to your blog...I'll link to you as well. :D We do seem to have a lot in common! I love to write...especially poems and stories! Oh, and I used Picasa 2 to turn my photos into b/w...I have photoshop, too, but I've found that Picasa works really well. :D

Thanks Bailey!! Weren't all the kids so adorable? :) I joke that it's super easy to take pictures of such great subjects! :D
