More photography fun!

This time with Hanna. . . a blue-eyed brunette entering her senior year in high school.

Hanna wanted some indoor shots. 

This means my bedroom with the bright morning sun. 

Little A was looking on . . . and as the sun kept rising I needed Hanna to move closer to the window.

Eventually, we opened up the windows and I headed outside.

I shot on the left side of the window while Little A played on the right side.


The natural light is so. . .naturally pretty.

Just like Hanna.

Hanna, may you look to the light of the Lord as you seek His direction in the exciting years ahead.

Happy Thursday!

Will's Sneak Peek

A dashing young high school graduate.

A dear family friend.

A college-bound, math major.


An avid Brewer fan.

A sibling to eight.

An uncle to three.

A soldier for Christ.

P.S.  If you ever question that math major. . .

I think you'd make a convincing secret service agent! :)

the hammock

My family jokes about the fact that Papa (my dad) is such a saver that there are still items with the moving sticker on them from 1972 when the family moved from Illinois to California.  But every once in awhile we hit the jack pot and are glad that he kept something that we would like to use.  Oma (my mom) thinks these occurrences are unfortunate since they perpetuate Papa's desire to SAVE every. single. thing.

Not long ago Z-man noticed a hammock down in Papa's storage room.  Perfect for our backyard!  Indeed it has been the entertainment of the summer for the kids.  I always plan on more hammock time with a book in hand but it hasn't happened as much as I'd like.

Yesterday, while taking pictures of Jaci, the hammock turned out to be my favorite backdrop. 


So, thanks for saving the hammock, Papa. . .It's been fun for the kids, and a great photo prop too!

Happy Friday!  


P.S. You know it's been a long week when it's 3:00 in the afternoon and you notice you've been wearing your shirt inside out!  Yep, that was me!

Jaci's Sneak Peek

Amidst a week with too many commitments it was so refreshing to tap into my love of photography this morning.

Jaci will be a senior this fall (how can it be so?) and asked if I'd take a few indoor pictures for her.

After attaching a black sheet to the ceiling of my bedroom, having her look toward the light coming in the window, and fiddling with my camera settings, I captured a few sweet (no flash) shots of this blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauty. . .

The kids had her giggling as they were strategically placing blowing fans toward her face . . .I was trying to accomplish the wind-blown hair look.

And since I had a willing subject, we ventured outside to the awesome natural light. . .
