French Sidewalk Cafe

I took these a couple weeks ago when I and my sister were at a {very charming} little French sidewalk cafe. we had croissants and coffee. it was a beautiful evening with crisp air and just the right amount breezes... and pretty light. I had my camera with me {naturally} so I snapped a few of my sister.



Thanks for looking! <3

Some of you may know, a lot of you probably don't - I and my family are moving out to some property in the country. we go out to our property generally every weekend (and we'll finally be moving in a few weeks - yay). this past Sunday when I was there I went scouting about with my camera and ended up taking some pictures of some twigs. and a old barbed wire fence.





also, happy belated valentines day to all of my sweet followers! <3 what did you guys do for valentines? I enjoyed a fun dinner with a few friends followed by the symphony. it was a very nice evening. <3

also, thank you all -so- much for all your sweet comments on my last post. I really appreciate it. I know I owe some of you comments, but today I'm doing good to put up a post at all. :/

Photo shoot photos (finally!)

Hello dear friends!

I'm finally updating my blog with the photos from my photo shoot Saturday before last. The photo shoot was a lot of fun, albeit a little nerve wracking. The girl was very, very sweet and nice to work with though.

I took all these photos with my 50mm 1.8 lens. I now wish I would've used my 28-135 lens to take some of them, but at the time I wasn't thinking as clearly as I normally do (have I told you I was a little nervous yet? yeah).

Yes, well, I don't have a whole lot more to say... so, without further ado, here are my favorite photos from the shoot. :0)

The editing of these photos was new for me.... when I've done photo shoots in the past, I always just pick out my favorite 6-10 photos and edit those. Tada, done-I'm already tired of looking at them, haha. But for a client, you obviously have to pull out quite a bit more photos. But I think it's good for me, a good growing experience as a photographer.

As usual, I'd love to hear your thoughts and which photo/s are your favorite! I appreciate all your comments so much - you're all so sweet.

So. today is was supposed to snow (in the land where it practically never snows). but it didn't. which was very sad. I had all kinds of photo shoot ideas swirling around in my head for if it did. but that's just how it goes. I did manage to get some pictures of some very nice little icicles (a far cry from a photo shoot in the snow, yes... but oh well).

this photo is the epitome of today. icy, cold, and dreary.
wind chimes.

Also, the photo shoot photos from Saturday before last are done. but I'm going to wait until Monday to post them.
