I Heart Faces - Pets

The challenge over at I heart faces this week is "Pets". I had a few in mind, but this one, I just love. Both subjects are so sweet, innocent and adorable, I just couldn't resist. There are some great, great photos over on the blog to see if you love animals, so be sure to check them out! Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Bokeh - And Remembering Last Year

I just love bokeh and when I saw this holiday bokeh party over at a fun new blog I found (Life with my 3 Barbarians), I wanted to share this image from the yummy baking time of yester-year. I have been crazy busy with my photography business and life and have had very little time to bake. This is so sad for me. But alas, I have pictures to remember last year and hope that I can get to some baking again!

Thanks, Robyn, for the blog referral!

I Heart Faces - Self Portrait

Ooh, this was a toughie. Though I am a photographer, I am not the biggest fan of pictures of myself...especially taking pictures of myself! So I guess you could say this really is a challenge for me :) I took this particular photo while taking the "finding your joy" workshop with Willette.  I just like how the wind kicked up and blew my hair while this one shot. I also got a call while doing this little project. Hence, the phone open on speaker phone..ha ha. I am a multi-tasker through and through!

I wholeheartedly agree that we, as the photographers and most often times, the real record and memory keeper in the family, should make it a point to get ourselves in many photos. Our family needs to remember us when we are gone...and they will appreciate it. So I am getting better at handing my camera off to make sure I am in a photo or two at an event. It doesn't always happen, but I try!
