Happy Halloween Everyone | Holidays

This is Alex’s first Halloween. And I’m not ready!! I mean that in a literal sense.  I’m actually not ready.  This month has just gone by so fast and I feel like I have accomplished nothing.  We didn’t decorate, we didn’t go to the pumpkin patch, or corn maze, or haunted anything.  I finally picked […]

Day in the Life | 10 on 10 Challenge

Our challenge for this month’s 10 on 10 project was “Day in the Life”.  It’s pretty hard to condense a day into 10 photos.  I made it a little easier on myself by deciding that it would be a faceless project, and also by cheating once again and collaging some photos and considering them “one”. […]

A Milestone Birthday | Candids

Ninety Five years young. Grandma is sharper, more fashionable, and more outgoing than I am on my best day.  She bakes a mean home made batch of buns, and she can whip anyone in a game of cards.  She’s nothing short of an extraordinary woman. Happy birthday to the coolest 95 year old on the […]

Frecklejuice | Grade School Portraits {Woodstock, On Photographer}

But if the dream is held close to the heart, and imagination is applied to what there is close at hand, everything is still possible.” ― Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten Nathan […]

Endings | 10 on 10 Challenge

I’m excited to post my first collection of photographs for our 10 on 10 circle challenge.  After you finish reading this post, please stop over to see how Jena of Jena Asgari Photography interpreted this month’s challenge. This month’s challenge was to photograph “Endings“. Endings are hard to photograph.  Not only because they are often sad, but […]

Tales of a Fifth Grade Something | Grade School Portraits {Woodstock, On Photographer}

Fifth Grade.  FIFTH GRADE!!  Already!?? On his very first day of Junior Kindergarten, I was so anxious about letting him go that I rode the bus with him.  I was “that” mom.  Poor, embarrassed, horrified little man.  He was so ready to be independent already, even back then.  I was the one who had separation anxiety.
