Regarding furthering education.

I am working on top secret painting ideas and I am stoked by the idea of seeing them come to fruition!
In other news, my camera died and I'm miserable thinking about all the darling moments I'm not capturing of my beautiful babies.
I'm obsessed with an app called studio design, and it's struck a chord with me. I think if I ever get back into school, I'm going to try for studio art and graphic design. Both. I enjoy both and what the hell. Ricky says why waste time getting a degree to work in a field that doesn't require one? Because I love to learn, and I want to get better.

I love my kids.

With Thanksgiving coming up, I thought I'd pop in to say I love my kids and husband. I'm glad I get to be a stay at home mom, and I'm glad I get a 30 hour work week in December to help pay for Christmas shopping.

I am struggling with a lot right now, though. I'm working on being thankful for more.

'Cause two are better than one.

My life has been wonderful since Miles was born. I feel like (although I have las patience than before) I love my kids mor than ever. I love the feeling that newborns bring with them, sometimes I rub my whole face on his tiny head. I think it'd has something to do with chemistry and evolution, who will ever know. All I do know is that I love my kiddos. I took two years of of full time parenting to be a cake decorator and it was worth it, but I am SO glad to be back.

Playing around with a new subject matter.

I am unsure about the method, but I am liking that it looks like my subject matter. No more drybrush...

It was a wonderful day, a wonderful ceremony and I couldn't be happier than I am with the love of my life and my cute little boy.

Fall is my fave.

I think fall is my favorite with all the colors.

These suckas always come untied.

Two-year-olds are strange.

For example:

In other news, I got a part time job at a bakery, and it looks like I'll be putting half my take home pay (or more) into daycare. I am planning on giving this job at least 3 months, and see if they bump me up to full time, or if I can find some reasonable daycare options. If I can do neiter I am going to try to work for a daycare, or go back to being a home-maker.

It's really too bad because I am REALLY looking foreward to this job. This is the kind of job I would have jumped at before I had a kid.

Photography blahs.

During this photography 365 project/challenge with James I really feel like I have had moments of brilliance. Lately, however, I have had fewer and fewer of those and all my photos I feel are subpar and definitely not something I am proud of at the end of the day.

Lighting, of course, is my main obstical, as I imagine it is for many photographers. Other than that, how I can I be a more consistent photographer? Any tips from anyone? Do I just need to take hundreds of photos and not stop until I have something I am truly happy with?

As someone who loves to eat, cook, and take photos, food photography almost seems like an obvious. This is something I am just discovering, however. Did you know there is a whole community of food photography bloggers and people who specialize in just food photography? That blows my mind.

Some of you may know I am crazy about free samples, and here is one I got recently. A beautiful slate cheese platter that I think is put to good use to display just about everything. I love the contrast that dark backdrop brings to the table, no pun intended.

Today I made Schar Gluten Free white bread. I must have 1. made it wrong, or 2. needed 2 packages to make a good sized loaf. The flavor was pretty awesome, though. I had two pieces; one with cinnamon and sugar, one with roast beef. The rest is just chillin' in the freezer.

Thought y'all might wonder what I'm up to. Photographing food.

Also, as always, mischief and no good.

The lady behind the lens.

Rag-rolled self curls. No make-up and my hair looks like a bad perm, I still like the picture....

Project James

I am trying to take more photos of my baby. On Facebook, I have been posting black and white images, here I think I'll post color.

Pictures from the past.

When I went to Washington for Christmas, my Grandma allowed me to bring a bag of pictures to scan for my own personal record. They're fantastic photos, and I am just getting around to getting them scanned. I thought I'd share a couple.

This is my Grandpa and Grandma(far left) on a date with friends.

This is my Grandpa when he was in the Navy in WWII

This is my Grandma when she was pregnant with my Uncle Lee

This is my Dad(the littlest boy) and his brothers Steve and Dan.

My life as of late.

Picture post.

On a different note, I have decided to ditch my music quote titles (and yes, pun absolutely intended.) They didn't really have much to do with the subject matter.

"Music can change the world because it can change people. " Bono

The Lopez shoot was Sunday, and I'm just now getting a sneak peek up. It was taken at The Utah Botanical Center in Kaysville. I have a lot of editing to do, once again nerves got the best of me and there was something to be desired in the compositions. Here are my favorites; keep in mind that they are not edited nor are they cropped. Who was it that once said there are no good photographers, only good editors? (:
