Ordinary Days

We bought this swing for our big tree in the back and it has been a huge hit.

A family trip to the mountains-these two love each other (that does not mean they don't drive each other crazy sometimes).  When Patrick left for camp Janey didn't know what to do.

"Matchies" cousins.  (I found the best deal on bows-lots of them-Janey will only wear pony tails now so they work out perfectly.)

I know NO ONE wants to see school supplies out in July but I couldn't resist a few for myself because look at these prints!  They scream summer all year long so I bought a whole bunch of them to last me through till next year. 



Abbey and I shot a wedding together-we were both so nervous but it ended up being so much fun and we worked well together-we really had a blast.  It was a 10 hour day for me (which is still very tiring darnit) and a 12 hour day for her but it was really cool for me to feel "alive" again artistically.   I wish I could post more pictures but the bride must see them first. :) . The cathedral photos are amazing. And I have to say the couple was so sweet and their families couldn't have been nicer.

Expert lightning bug catcher.  

Summer days are the best.  I wish they could last forever.  I've been reading up a storm and have more books to post soon.

  2. I agree with Christi above. Ordinary days are indeed the very best!
    And a wedding?? How awesome for you and your daughter to do together.
    That couple is blessed to have you photograph their special day.
    Enjoy the remaining days of summer.
    August is usually the slowest paced month around here!
