Saturday was a busy day…only two sessions but still so long…here is one with a senior girl…the lighting was kinda funny…its a long story about her and the whole day, but I posted this to show that tree behind her.  One of my favorite trees outside the studio doors…although it was still a tad too green in this shot…but its getting orange fast!bowman1

I know some of you are proably ready to string me up by my toes..BUT…I just had such a busy weekend.  I took pictures all weekend but have not had time to post anything.  And I know some of you have seen this shot already!  I’m going to just post the last three days as if I did them on time.  🙂

So I’m in love with the 70-200 2.8L w/IS…I know you probably already heard me say that on the forum…but I LOVE IT!  For those of you who haven’t seen this..its a sooc shot from a bridal session shot with that lens…only resized and sharpened for web.

This is my favorite time of the year!  I couldn’t express how much I enjoy this time of year, if I wrote 10 pages about…if Autumn lasted all year long, my camera would never leave my side!autumntree

The unbelievably strong, and some quite outrageous, opinions surrounding the election have drained me…here is my photo for the day.


My thoughts on the election…

Odds are some of you might not like this, but I’m sick of the hate and anger surrounding the election of our new president…and no, I’m not an Obama supporter, but here are my thoughts on the matter…I really need to say this…

This country needed prayer long before this election…I think we all need to focus a little less on being angry and more on being Christians!

No, I’m not jumping for joy that Obama is President…I don’t stand for many of the same things he does, BUT, no matter what he stands for…no matter what choices are made available to Americans, pro choice or pro life, gay marriage or no gay marriage…ultimately, people still have a choice. WE are in control of making sure that we follow God’s will no matter what is set in front of us! We have the choice to sin or not to sin everyday…we need to let go of this anger…get on your knees and start praying! We need to pray for our new president…pray that God will take hold of him and help him lead this country in the right direction…maybe its a long shot, but maybe its not, but the shape of this country is not on Obama’s shoulders..its been this way for a long time, and our lack of prayer and trust in God is what got in the shape we are in! PRAY! God is in control of all of this…so humble yourselves before HIM and understand that He has a plan…we are at God’s mercy..not the presidents.

You know..I just knew that by the time Sunday had gotten here, that with no more sicklings in this house, we were in the clear…WRONG!  Kris woke up in the middle of the night…very sick.  And guess who was sleeping right between us?  Twin no. one, Maddie…so I’m sure its just a matter of time before she catches it and passes it along to twin no. two, Gracie.  (btw, thats their birth order…not rank of importance, lol…it could be the order of who is most mischevious though!)  Maddie has been BAD today…and Gracie has been no angel..I guess its just because I’ve been trying to keep them extra quiet so Kris could rest.  So…this afternoon, in an attempt to have some fun outside, we had a little photop and playtime.  It was a really nice break from being cooped up inside fighting the virus! 

After I submitted this post, I remembered, I took an image just for this blog…doh!  When we were walking in this afternoon, our “neighbors” were peaking at us…that would be the horses.  My husband’s Uncle and Aunt have horses…our backyard is fenced off from their pasture.  🙂

I’ve just had a chaotic day…I’m cheating.  I took this over the weekend…kill me not for being a cheater…I have a toddler in my lap.  I will post something really great tomorrow to make up for it.  In the meantime, enjoy a sad attempt at a self portrait!girls1111-4258
