Day 101 of 365, Mom has been the historian and directory pictorial photographer for her church since she joined Riverside. The church is wanting to publish an updated directory so she asked me to help her set up studio lighting in one of the classrooms. Once the lighting is in place, the whole process goes pretty quickly as the members and their family come to have their pictures taken. I did help her set up the lighting and we took test pics of each other to check for shadow and correct skin tones. Some of those test pics are doozies. Oh, my goodness. I picked out a few 'choice' pics of her and told her they would be perfect for my blog. :P I had to rethink that idea because she said she was going to get my 'best' pics and post them. I called her bluff because she doesn't have a blog. I taunted her with , "Where ya gonna post mine?" Promptly, she replied, "Everywhere!" whoa nelly! She trumped my threat because all I could picture was my goofy pics posted on the corner grocery store window. Uh, no thank you! Did I say doozies? Yeah, what I meant to say was dooooo-zeeees! So, too bad, no lighting test pics for the blog because the lighting test pics are in the Recycle Bin!

Mia loves this little bed. It is out of shape from washing so much and too small but she seems to like it. It sits under my computer desk where she is usually right by my feet if I am at the computer. She is a sweetie.

Mia is another little trusty/not so trusty subject. She is always here but not always still enough to be a trusty practice subject. Here she is in the spotlight. I laid my flash head on the grass and threw one of her little toys out in front of her. She just plopped down and stayed there for a couple seconds which was just enough to snap this spotlight shot.
Done! I was barefoot and kept stepping in the stickers so I called her to come in for the night! I want to practice more later.

Day 92 of 365...Presentation/Delivery Date! Here is the gift bag that I presented to Maria and Andy today. Found inside is the Dvd slideshow movie which is a compilation of their Wedding Day images that I had photographed. Also, their album is filled with a timeline story of photos from the getting ready, to the ceremony, first dance, daddy dance, cutting the cake, celebration reception and guests... all the way to the big smoocheroo right before they went away! I think Maria, Andy and her family love all the pictures. I am so honored to have captured her special day. Check out Maria looking at her album with Andy looking over her shoulder. When Maria realized that I wanted to take a pic of her, she said, "Oh no! I've been laying out at the pool!"
Yeah right, Maria! You are beautiful no matter what! :)
Isabella awoke from her baby nap while I was there. She is such an adorable little punkin'! When her daddy playfully lifts her up and over his head, she squishes up her little face into the cutest giggly smile! She is laying in the middle of her pallette playland. She has all her toys around. Next thing ya know she will be toddling around and pulling them all out of the toybox.
It is so amazing how babies can change so fast.
You gotta love, capture and treasure every precious moment.

I had to wait for a million cars to pass before I could cross the highway. I happened to look back to see if Kayla was looking my way. What I saw was my own looooong tall shadow.

Tomorrow, I plan to go on a field trip. I don't know where, but I want to go somewhere that I have never been. Hoping for a new adventure! If anybody lives around me and wants to hop along on a field trip with me, give me a call. All I have to do is put on my shoes and grab my keys & I'm ready to go...!
