  • Beach Baby

  • I have had several people mention to me how much they loved when I would post a picture a day. I found this amusing because to me it seems so long ago. I did it to keep my creativity fresh. And ya know, I could use a little of that now. So why not do it again?!!? So I am going to make it a part of m[...]
  • Photoshop fun Friday 2

  • I really should do this every week. On my way to soccer practice last night I took out my idea journal and sketched this out (nope, not gonna show you my terrible stick figure sketches). When we got there Isaac went one way to practice and we went on the other side of the parking lot to take a few s[...]
  • Photoshop Fun Friday

  • I took this image last summer. And thought it would be fun to play with. I have a few new tricks and toys. I love the original just the way it is. But wanted to play with a nice picture today. Here is my play. All for the fun of it! 
  • Fairy babies and birth in a bottle

  • Oh how I love to composite! I could do this kind of work all day everyday. Where the only limit is my imagination. Let me tell you how these images came to be. I am in a couple of composite groups on Facebook. A member in one of those groups posted a link to a site that had a composite contest (www.[...]
  • Precious Penelope

  • I put it out on my Facebook page that I was looking for some expecting mothers. Some so early maybe no one knew yet. I received a few responses. But only one of them worked out. And I am so glad it did. As it turned out I was expecting myself and didn't know when I announced that I needed mommies. S[...]
  • Hello Holly

  • It's been an eventful 6 months. Not shooting as much as I would like to, but it's worth it! If you follow me on Facebook or anywhere else then you already know. Just over 6 months ago this little girl stole our hearts! She keeps us busy, but she also keeps us smiling. She has got to be one of the ha[...]
  • Happy Birthday to me!!!

  • We went back to the specialist on Friday and great news!!! The placenta has moved!! No more light duty for me, well no more than any other pregnancy anyway. Now to get off the couch and back to work. Just in time for warmer weather too. Does it get any better? Thank you to everyone for your prayers [...]
  • Drift away

  •  I love shooting for me. I don't do it nearly enough. I also love mashing images up like this one. No we didn't really put the baby in the water like that, I'm not completely crazy.  
  • 2nd grade book report and pumpkin Jesus

  • My 2nd grader who loves Star Wars, Minecraft, legos and weapons was assigned a book report. He was to fill out the worksheet and decorate a pumpkin (without cutting it) to look like a character in the book. I ask him what book he wants to use and he chooses one we recently read. "We're going to Heav[...]
  • Baby B is six months old.

  •   Look at this handsome little man! I couldn't help but fall in love with him the moment I saw him. He's so happy!! And those cheeks, my goodness those cheeks!! I could squish them all day. Baby B is 6 months old now and growing so fast. Look at him sitting up all by himself. We visited a grea[...]
  • Let's get personal

  • For my own entertainment I have started sketching ideas for some things I wanted to shoot. I have done a few of them. And I am really surprised at how close my final images are to my original sketches. It's so much fun. I just have to share. Can you tell me what this image says to you? If you can re[...]
