Feeding a wounded baby deer, flowers, and splinters

Yesterday I took some pictures of the flowers I have in my flower beds and my son ended up with a pretty good sized splinter in his big toe. After the splinter ordeal we took the kids to a farm where they got to feed a baby deer that had been wounded in an accident with a hay baler. It was the cutest thing!!! They also got to see a really fat pot belly pig. They loved every minute of it!

A 5 week old friend

I took some pictures last week for a friend of our's little guy. Baby J was such a good sport and so cute! These were taken in my daughter's room using natural light for some and an external flash for others...the light wasn't quite good enough without having to raise my ISO too high for my camera.

I Heart Faces week 24 ~ Kids entry

This week's theme at I Heart Faces is, "Let's hear it for the boys". This is one of my favorite (recent) pictures of my son. We were on vacation in Hilton Head, SC. I know the sepia theme was last week, but this picture needed some saving, and thus the sepia finish. He is getting better about letting me take his picture these days....I wish he'd rub off on his little sister! Anyway, here is my handsome little man! To see other adorable boys or enter a photo of your own, head over to I Heart Faces and join in the fun!

1 year shoot with baby "K"

I recently shot some 1 year pictures for a friend of mine. I love how they turned out! Her little one is so precious!! I processed them with Pioneer Woman's "seventies" action and also MCP's "high def sharpening". These are a few of my favorites. The conditions were a bit yucky....drizzle and clouds....but it made for fantastic lighting and color!

I Heart Faces week 23 ~ Kids entry

It's been quite a few weeks since I last joined in the fun at I Heart Faces. This week's theme is sepia toned pictures. The one I am entering for the kids category was taken during our trip to Hilton Head, SC, a couple weeks ago. I absolutely love this picture of my kids! It really makes me smile every time I look at it. I hope you enjoy it as well. To see more great photos and enter one of your own, head over to
