An Awesome Quote

Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment. -Benjamin Franklin

Happy Belated 4th?

I know, I know... It's going to be August before we know it and I don't even have my firework shots up yet! Crazy. But that is all going to change. Very soon, actually.  By the time you are done reading this nonsense the pictures will be there, I promise.  I had some issues with the memory card, 55mm lens AND the computer decided it didn't want to work either. Put that together and you have one frustrated photographer. But thank the Lord, all is well and back on track. Mostly. By the way this is year number FOUR that I've tried so desperately to get ONE decent firework shot. I believe I got about ONE times TWO HUNDRED really awesome shots. I'm so happy they turned out. For some reason it all clicked. It is so simple too! No way on earth am I going to load them all here, you'll have to come over and I'll give you a slideshow, seriously. Without further ado, hopefully.... :P Here are the pictures.  I shall stop rambling now. Critiquing please!  

P.S. thank you to 'a few people' who again so graciously gave me suggestions as to photographing fireworks.  Your advice is always much appreciated. ;)

Three Sister's

Kaylie Mae, Casidy Lynn & Samantha Ashley

Three Sister's ~ By Francis I. Gillespie 

We are three sisters
Three sisters are we
I love each of you,
And I know you love me

We’re not always together,
Life sometimes keeps us apart.
But we're never separated
We’re in each other's heart.

Now I know we've had our troubles,
But we always get thru.
The real message is you love me,
And I also love you.

We have had lots of good times
That we'll never forget
Sometimes we worry
And sometimes we fret

But if God ever gave me
Something special you see,
It might have been the blessing of,
Three sisters are we.

The Lord above has gave me lots
Of happiness and glee
But the most special thing he did was
Make us sisters, all three.

1,2,3 Smile!

Families are Forever - I had the opportunity to photograph one big family last week. It sure was a lot of fun! Thank you for the great evening! 

Isn't he just the sweetest? 

That's all for today.... Hope you enjoyed the pictures.....

Random Pictures

These are a few random pictures from the past. The Mac is still down unfortunately, so here are a few old photos. I believe the first shot of the butterfly was taken back in 2008.  Please forgive me if you've already seen these. I still have the firework shots from the 4th I've yet to upload. Soon hopefully.  Hope you enjoy the pictures. Happy Saturday!

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.” - Ashley Smith

When you feel like giving up and you feel like you are near the end of your rope, hold on. Don't let go. Don't get frustrated. Don't give up. No matter how difficult it is, no matter how impossible it seems, no matter how long it takes, just hold on. It is through our challenges that we push ourselves to grow and we truly do grow through times like those..... And through weakness, we are made strong.

Just a thought..... that came to me..... as I was struggling through some math problems. :)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!
