Lilli's Birthday Bash

Yesterday I had the privilege of taking pictures at Miss Lilli's first birthday party. Lilli is adorable and I had a wonderful time. These are just a few from the day.
Happy Birthday Lilli!!!

More Bokeh and Ornaments

I'm having fun with the shaped bokeh, this time I did stars.

Then I just started taking pics of our tree and some ornaments, the painted ones on slate were ones my oldest daughters, Kristie and Jessie made when they were in 4th grade. The bell was made by my youngest, Lindsay when she was in...hmm I don' t remember exactly but let's just say I hope she wasn't in 4th grade for this, but sadly she was probably


Thought I should post something, now that winter is here I don't take as many pics, but since Christmas time is upon us, I thought I'd try something I think is cool, getting shaped bokeh with the Christmas tree lights. If you don't know what bokeh is, it's the part of photos thats purposely out of focus, like blurring backgrounds out. You want good bokeh in your photos. I made a heart shape for these, but you can do them with other shapes as well. These aren't the greatest because I hand held the camera and it really should be on a tripod or setting on something, I still think they turned out pretty good though.

Whoopie Pies!

Somewhere along the way my photography blog has become a baking blog as well, we'll just blame it on my undiagnosed ADD.
My oldest daughter Kristie didn't want a cake for her birthday this year, she wanted whoopie pies, which was alright with my hubby, cause he loves em too. If you've never had them you are seriously missing out, they are fabulous! I got this recipe from a book called "From Amish and Mennonite Kitchens" excellent book! I spent all morning making these for Kristie, so Happy Birthday Kip! even though it's early :)

My Birthday Cake

I found this recipe and decided it was going to be my birthday cake this year, it's really good and not too difficult to make. You can find the recipe HERE , you can find lots of goodies there, I love her site.
As happy as I was with the cake, I am even happier with the pic I got of it.

I should've known...

by the way my night went that my day wouldn't be much better, and apparently the Divine One feels the same way...

~The Divine Miss M~

Yes, she is my favorite subject and right now it's so hard to take pictures of her cause she's always on the go, but once in awhile I'm able to catch her.

Tyler | 2011 Senior

This is Tyler and he's the first Senior I've done pics for. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, I hope he is as well.

Welcome to my blog!

Hi and welcome to my blog, I'm going to use this to showcase my photography. I am a photo enthusiast and just love to take pics. Right now I only shoot for free but maybe someday I'll go into business. My favorite subject is my granddaughter, and in a few more months there will be another one who'll have to get used to my camera.
