Photography Blues

You must have crossed your fingers but forgot your feet because I got my computer, I got Lightroom 4 set up…but I didn’t get any pictures of the baby.  Just these two… Just these two pictures of a crying baby birdy. =)  Auntie Sarah came with a whole basket of props for this little guy, … Continue reading

As Dusk Falls into a Darkened Night…(A Girl Needs Help Here!!)

These past two weeks surely have been a blur for me!  I think I have set a personal record for the most time spent in a car in the past fourteen days.  Unfortunately, it’s about to slow way down.  Not like taking your foot off the gas and coasting to a stop, but a full … Continue reading
