My Real Life Through My Viewfinder

So...I realized that this blog is called MY LIFE through my viewfinder, and there is not a single picture of me, my wonderful and handsome husband, or my two amazing and beautiful children. So, Here are a few pictures to begin with. My kids have their own blogs, but I am a terrible blogger, and have lots of things on my plate these days, so their blogs are rather neglected. My children are Seth age 3 and Sophie age 17 months.

I'm not a photographer...just a mom with a really nice camera (the best gift my husband has ever bought for me, by the way). I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE taking pictures and have had several friends ask me to take photos for them. I don't consider myself a photographer, but I do consider myself a FREEtographer - who takes pictures for others free of charge.

I was once a public school teacher, but traded in my grade book for dirty dishes and dirty diapers....I've never regretted it for a second! I taught 8th grade math and the occasional English class (though not my favorite subject). Now I teach my own two monkeys, but mostly I think they are the ones teaching me. I love motherhood and plan to add one more monkey to my mayhem within the next year or two. I think that will be it for me. I am considering homeschooling when my children are old enough. My husband is self-employed, and we really enjoy the scheduling freedom this brings us. When my oldest was born, the school decision seemed like an eternity away. I cannot believe that this year, he will turn 4. Though, I still have a little more time, the decision will soon need to be made.

My life is calling me away from my computer....there are messes to be cleaned and children to be dressed.


  1. Your photographs are so charming!!
