Through the Lens Thursday: Delicious (Happy birthday, Mom!)

I’m not a foodie, or a baker, and I don’t take particularly good photos of food or baked goods. But, I think I’ve grown into a pretty good daughter (if you don’t count my high school years against me). Today is my mom’s birthday, and it’s a pretty big milestone. The kids happily wished herContinue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday: Colorful

  The weather has been really cold this week, but the sunsets and sunrises have been amazing and full of vibrant colors (maybe that’s the consolation prize for how miserable it is to be outside?). I always see the best skies when I’m driving though, and by the time I get home to my camera,Continue Reading

A Look Back Over My Shoulder at 2014

Ah, 2014. I think it was a good year. It was often uneventful, but challenging. I had some failures, and some accomplishments, and hopefully, they balanced each other out. 2014 was the year I sent another kid off to school all day, every day, when Essie went to kindergarten, and ended up with one atContinue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday: New

Happy New Year! I drank Moscato Spumanti Champagne (or something) last night and was asleep by 11. So I’m just assuming it’s 2015 now! Christmas, new presents, new new new. I have a lot to say about the new year, and the old one. But I’m also the old one and headed for bed (theContinue Reading

Through The Lens Thursday: Lights

Merry Christmas! I can’t believe this is the last TTLT of the year….we made it! Without further ado…LIGHTS. We went to see family this weekend and T and I stayed with my brother and sister-in-law. This was from below the light fixture in their kitchen. And these were after Christmas Eve service at our church.Continue Reading

Project 365: Week 51

I can’t believe the year is almost over. Dec. 14 We went to see a local production the Nutcracker, infused with Kansas history. Dec. 15 Christmas program day (with a  cowboy theme), and the day my son and daughter took their first selfie together. Dec. 16 Erv went on the town with my parents andContinue Reading

Through the Lens Thursday 2015!

At the beginning of this year, I wrote this: I want to be confident each time I pick up my Nikon, and use my brand new Lightroom software to edit smartly, thoughtfully, easily. In 2014, I want to be better at photography. I want to pick up my camera and shoot. I want to shootContinue Reading

Project 365: Week 50

Dec. 7 I just can’t even with the Build A Bear vest and the sleeping puppy face. Dec. 8 I don’t seem to have taken a picture, but I did share this one of Erv at 8 months old. Dec. 9 Reading some bedtime stories in the morning. Dec. 10 My oldest daughter did this.Continue Reading
