Pretty Flowers

Who knew I could photograph flowers? I am always so focused on faces that I sometimes forget that there is a whole world full of beautiful things around me, so I decided to take a closer look at what would normally be just a blurry background...

It's Fall in Florida!

Get ready for a post of cuteness overload featuring two of my precious blue-eyed nieces! I was so excited that Kai actually seemed to enjoy having her pictures taken, I am thinking the pumpkins distracted her, or maybe she has come to realize Auntie's camera really isn't all that bad ;P But anywho, there are a TON of her. Its alright to show off every now and then right? I am so blessed to have as many gorgeous nieces as I have, and even more blessed that I get to see these two pretty often!

Last Minute Trip

At 3am Saturday morning, I got a text from my mom asking if I wanted to take a trip with them up to Jacksonville to visit with my brothers family, and well of course I said yes! I of course used the opportunity to take some pictures of all my nieces. They had a really cool backyard, it was perfect for pictures. The house had gorgeous hardwood floors for these first pictures... The first one I couldn't decide if I liked it in color or black and white better..

With her Mommy...
Beautiful little Claire..she wanted to come back with us... haha.
Silly silly Keli... I absolutely love these three.. so her.
And last but definitely not least, Prissy Chrissy. She recently turned 6 and I didn't get to do a session with her so I took more of her. She is incredibly sweet. I love her little personality, she always just goes along with the flow. My sister in law said, that she recently said she misses the times when we would have holiday dinners together and stuff... I do to. I miss having all my family close by :(

AND... while I was there, this kitty was hanging out around the front of their house. Apparantly it is a stray but the kids love it, and it loves the kids! Very photogenic kitty...

Ah, I am absolutely exhausted. I have been on a super wacky sleep schedule, I am hoping I can force myself to stay up about another 5 hours and maybe, just maybe I can get back on a regular, or at least somewhat regular sleep schedule. SO. I needed something to do to preoccupy my time. Last night while I was blog hopping I spotted the neatest idea of keeping the photography business in order. I have tried out a couple different methods and have not been happy but this one I think I will really love. Seeeeee....

I am a super visual person, so I think having this staring me down every single day will help me keep track of just where I am with everyone's sessions. But anyway, I sat down on the floor with a permanent marker, the board and a big piece of cardboard and made my masterpiece! I dont think I did all that bad, my fingers are black from frantically wiping away permanent marker in a few places that I had messed up. But all in all. I LOVE it :)

And just for fun I thought I would share this of Kai.. this is from yesterday at my parents. I took my camera because I have been playing with some new settings.. well she found the binoculars, I think she thought they were pretty cool.

And yes, my mom does have binoculars. Because of her health she is pretty limited to what she can do, so she bought them so that she could watch the wildlife out the window... :)

I am definitely at a point in my life where everything just seems to be out of control. I normally handle chaotic situations very well, however, this is a different kind of chaos. The kind that just makes you want to give up, sit down and cry. I know that is not an option, and I am really trying. But. it is hard. and getting harder. I am not even sure what I have to look forward to anymore. The people I used to surround myself with for love and comfort have now become some of the people that are actually causing turmoil. I know that I can be very dramatic.. and I am sorry. But that is ME. that is who I am, that is who I have always been. I am better now at controlling my emotions than when I was younger. But that to is getting harder since I have no one whom I feel like I can TRULY confide in. That will just listen and not judge me for what I feel.

I really am praying that my dad gets this Colorado job. I know that there are quite a few people who will be very angry at me leaving. But at this point. I NEED to get away. I NEED the time to be away from the things I've gotten myself caught up in. I NEED the time to find myself and learn how to deal with issues like these. I got way ahead of myself, and trying to deal with the problems now is just breaking me down.

This picture I took at the aquarium of Kailynn makes me feel happy. What I would give to be a small child again... to see something that neat through the eyes of a child again. The wonder the magic, the excitement, the joy. Oh how I want those feelings again.

Went out with Becca and Kailynn to get some shots of Kailynn. We are in a mad rush to get a whole bunch of sessions done before I go to Colorado... except that isn't even for sure yet. Oh well.. It was a beautiful day and it wasn't ungodly hot. Here's a couple of what I got :)

Oh yeah, we got good genes in my family... and yes I know some of them came from her mama's side too...
