I have read some tutorials lately to help me learn how to take better photos of my Christmas tree – they help with photos of other lights, too – so I decided to share some of my successes with you.
Note: I have had my DSLR for about a year and a half and am by [...]
It starts so early…
Always watching, listening, waiting for her turn to do the big kid things.

I’m still using my Kodak point and shoot, but I’m learning a lot about editing and [...]

One of our favorite and least expensive family past times is exploring mountains, scenery and small towns (which usually means lots of day trips)! We like to pack up snacks and a picnic meal and head out for some exploration. Yesterday we decided to go on a road trip (a whole day [...]
I LOVE this week’s You Capture – the theme is nature! Nature is one of my favorite things to photograph (in addition to my kids and old/dilapidated wooden structures such as barns).
We went to Helen Hunt Falls this past weekend for a short bit and it was beautiful. We’ve had a lot of rain and [...]
