The clouds cleared off and I got to take pictures yesterday! These are the bluest eyes I have seen in a long time...

Midsummer's Night celebration...


Betsy, it's time. We are waiting. And I don't know if any of those Schaffitzel's blog or not
(they're usually too busy working...), but they really do the most amazing flowers!

I'm hoping for the sun to break through just a little bit for a photo session today. Clouds are actually very good for light, but this is a little much. Plus it's so COLD!
Speaking of photo sessions, I'm thinking I may set aside a day in October for me to take pictures of families for their Christmas cards! How about a Sunday afternoon? You'd already be cleaned up for church (well, maybe :-) and the Saturdays are pretty well crammed already. I would have to charge a minimal session fee, but you'd get a disc with all the great images and a low resolution print out of the images so you can make notes and pick your favorites. Then I can either have them printed for you at cost or you can do whatever you want with them. How's that sound?? I'll decide how much the session fee will be and post that for your information.

All for now,

Sweet Caroline... another cute shot!


How many cute expressions does this little girl have?! What you see in this photo is AS-IS. No digitial fix-ups were needed in any way. My favorite kind! :-)

Yes, I know. After much research, I have officially dropped the "e" on the word lens. I must take responsibility for my previous TITLE OF MY OWN BLOG... So, I guess before I go pro here, I have to learn how to spell all of my equipment.
Just for your info, though, I did look it up. I have always trusted Mr. Webster. But he is a bit old, and he had it as "lense." That's why our family needs to invest in updated versions of the dictionary OR just google any word in question. Which I did, and here are the results:

Google stats:
Lense - 2.3 million refs
Lens - 54.9 million refs

"lense" is an accepted variant and perhaps more widely used among those who speak the Queen's English.

and from Princeton:
S: (n) lens, lense, lens system (a transparent optical device used to converge or diverge transmitted light and to form images)

The archaic spelling lense is sometimes seen, but Merriam-Webster's medical dictionary is the only major dictionary that considers this to be correct.[1]

So, that's enough. I'm not really stupid or crazy. Just archaic - and I'm working on that. Just in case you wondered.

Sweet Caroline


Saturday am, I finally got around to taking these of Caroline Reynolds. She is always a very pleasant baby, so getting a smile was the easy part. Getting creative was the fun part. And speaking of fun... next I will post some shots of her oldest sister. A teenager at the park on a pretty day with no constraints of time = A LOT of pictures.
So, watch for those...

Seriously, I am trying to gain all the practice I can right now, so if you'd like to schedule a session, just let me know! It's FREE for a limited time!!!!
