Elizabeth, Dylan and Brody 2

And here are the cuties in color! We had such a fun time exploring this trail, from the great path, to airplanes flying over head to a grassy meadow, every spot was a new little adventure.

Thank you so much friends for letting me capture such wonderful moments with such a great family!

Elizabeth, Dylan and Brody

I was able to spend some precious time with some adorable friends of mine. Miss Elizabeth is a wonderful big sister to her twin brothers Dylan and Brody. We had a fun photo shoot and more color pics will follow this blog but I just loved these black and white close ups. Such a sweet family.

365 (Give or Take a Few)

 Last year I decided to join a group of photographers and participate in a 365 project. And while I wasn't able to actually take a picture a day for an entire year, the project did help me find beauty all around me. It really is amazing how many wonderful things you can photograph if you just stop and look for them. Some of these were taken steps away from my office door, others were taken at 11:30pm as I desperately looked around my home for something creative to shoot before the clock struck 12 and others were strategic, calculated and time consuming. They were all fun and resulted in a great exercise and some great shots.

First for those shot around the office. Go figure, the fair came into town and set up right next door, then their was a beautiful Iris blooming right outside and finally some weeds.

My 11:30pm shots consisted of grains of salt that I had spilt on our table and the frosting of a cupcake I would be taking to a party the next morning

And Finally my calculated and some times very time consuming shots are of some pretty amazing flowers at the Getty, a sunset coming through some plants, water drops, candles and a little fly who took forever to land. 

A special thank you to my brother for reminding me about the project! I hope you have enjoyed some of my favorites.

Los Colores

Ok one more post from my Mexico trip. I just couldn't stand the thought of not sharing the colors. I love the colors of Mexico! 

Los Niños

Anyone who knows me knows that I have multiple favorites. These are just a few of my favorite friends I was able to make while in Mexico. One of the things our team did was put on a VBS for the local children. We had about 100 kids visit us every day and they were all so super cute!

La Playa

I had an amazing opportunity to spend some time in Mexico this past week, and though my favorite thing about Mexico will always be the people (that will be my next post), the beaches are becoming something I am looking forward to more and more. It's just beautiful and you get the whole beach to yourself! Perfect for photography.

Pure Joy

Some times I smile when I don't want's something adults have to learn to do. But babies, they smile only when they are happy. Their smiles flow straight from the joy in their little hearts. It's what makes children photography so wonderful and let's face it, a little stressful. I'll be putting more pictures of this session up, but for now I wanted to show you the joy that sprang out of little Noah when we put him on this wooly rug. It was wonderful and had us all smiling. I hope it makes you smile too!
