what June looks like

June has come and gone.  I braced myself this summer.  I made almost no plans for the kids except for a few swim lessons.  But the weeks still seem to be flying by.  We have filled our days with backyard play, raspberry picking, music, swim lessons, gardening, and taking the time to watch and feel the summer storms roll through every evening. 

Check out DeAnna McCasland next.  Her images make my jaw drop open every time. 


10 on 10 June

We spent a few days camping this week with some awesome people and their kiddos.   We made our way back up to our home state of Wyoming.  Both my husband and I are from Wyoming so it sits close to our hearts.  Once we hit the state line all feels right and good.

what winter looks like

I missed last month...shame on me.  I am part of a group called what__looks like.  I was lucky enough to be a part of it last year and it is just one of those groups of women that is dripping talent, thought, and creativity.  I have had to pare back some of the photo groups I am involved with so that I make sure I focus on making art and not just posting.  But I could not leave this group.

Each month we all photograph our lives...the big and small.  It is just a way to record and memorialize what is happening.  

This month we stayed inside a lot.  We spent time watching the snow, trying on my old dance costumes, sleeping, and learning to whistle.

So please be sure to click and check out the insanely talented and darling Sarah Cornish.

My Four Hens Photography out of colorado.  If you do not know her work you will love it...hands down without a doubt.

Coming into the New Year

I haven't set all my photography goals for this year but I have a few that my husband has taken liberty of writing on our large chalkboard wall.  I am sure that I will share them in the coming months.  I do know that I will be shooting everyday (almost) and participating in a 10 on 10 (10 images on the 10th of every month).  The habit of shooting everyday this last year still has me energized to keep at it.  I have loved it and I feel good knowing that I have created a lasting memory for my children.  I have learned that I create a lot of bad images and that is okay.  I am learning to see what I love in my work...and where I want to go with it.  It is going to be an exciting year.  Can't wait to see what it brings.
