Infant shoot

I got to do my first infant shoot this week with little Todd who is such a cutie!  If you have never done one, infant shoots are totally different than regular portrait sessions due to the fact that babies that age don't "pose" just how you want them.  Hence, the effort to keep them asleep during the shoot.

Todd did a good job and we had fun getting a number of pictures of his cute little face.

I am looking forward to whenever I next get the opportunity to do an infant portrait session and learning more about how to achieve the most adorable shots possible!

Todd also was special because he is the first "official" portrait session that I shot in my new studio!

Contact me at if you are interested in setting up a portrait session and I will get you scheduled in!

Day 16: Silhouette

Normally when I think of hearts and silhouettes, I think of those fun "hand-hearts" that young couples make. But as I was shooting for today's challenge this image grabbed my attention.

It feels like a bit of a discouraging picture of all the darkness creeping in towards the heart.  But isn't it amazing that with all the discouragement and darkness that tries to crowd into our heart, we have a God who cares for us and gives us joy in every situation?

You may not be in a difficult situation right now, but when it does happen, remember the one who protects our hearts and gives us a smile when things aren't going our way.

Day 15: Your shoes

These are my day-in-day-out shoes.  

There is nothing fancy about them and they are not very expensive, but they are the most comfortable shoes ever!  

You know that great feeling when you really break in a pair of shoes?  These are like that and then some.  

I love my old beat up shoes!

Day 14: Technology

Hard to believe that this was modern technology at one time!

  I love looking at old cameras though and I would like to eventually get a working vintage film camera and do a shoot with it.

Day 13: You with 13 items

Those of you who have known me for some time will know that I love to read.  A lot! :o)

When the 13 item challenge came up today, my mind first went to my bookshelf at my office, so I ran over there and picked out a few books that I have enjoyed over the years.

These are not necessarily my all time favorite books, but I can say they all are great reading material!

So, what is a favorite book of yours?  

Share your favorite book (or two) in the comment section below!

Day 12: Eyes

Okay, I know, scary, right?  But hey, if you can get over the fact that there is a huge eyeball on your screen, you can start to appreciate the sight that God has given to us.

Truly the eye is one of the most complex designs in the human body.   

I am grateful that I have been gifted with good sight.

Day 10: A Childhood Memory

 Day 10 of the challenge is a childhood memory.  I have tons of memories that are much more important than this one, but this is one of the extra fun memories that I have from my childhood.

I remember going to the library and picking out all sorts of books on different subjects from fascinating tales of adventure to historic stories of great men and women.  Before I left the library though, I always made sure to stop by the Calvin and Hobbes section and pick up one of the comic collection books.  Mom would only let me get one Calvin and Hobbes at a time, otherwise I may have checked out all 5 of them every time! :o)

I enjoyed the craziness of Calvin's ornery world, and I still enjoy reading these and catching the deeper life meanings that are tucked into some of the strips.

Are any of you fans of Calvin Hobbes?  Leave a comment below and tell me who your favorite character was!  Mine would have to be Spaceman Spiff (One of Calvin's secret identities.)

 So true...."Mom speak" can be so different from "kid speak".

 Don't we all get a little too prideful of our power at times?  It's good to know that a merciful God is really in charge and not us!

And this one just makes me laugh every time I read it. :o)

Day 9: Sunset

I decided to post day 9 a few hours early when I saw this beautiful sunset this evening!  

Our God is not only powerful, but he is also artistic and the creator of everything that is beautiful.

Let's make sure we take time out of our busy lives to appreciate the things in life that are free, yet so priceless.

Day 8: A Bad Habit

Day 8 is supposed to be a picture of a bad habit, so I chose out of the many options....junk food!

And so comes the age old question, why are things that taste so good, so bad for you? :o)

And by the way, York Peppermint Patties are not a weakness of mine, I just let them represent all candy bars and junk food because they make the best faces!  (Try carving a face into a Hershey's bar, it doesn't work so good.)
