MCP Project 52: 4/52 Soothing Repetition

This idea came from the fact that my husband and I need "white noise" to go to sleep. So every night, no matter how cold it is outside, our bedroom fan is going. Soothing us to sleep.

Project 52: Week 3

Starting off this week will be my Project 52: week 3- Shades of Gray

As many of you know, I love B&W images above all others. If I had my choice, almost all pictures would be B&W. Not because I don't like colour, but more-so because with B&W's you have to see the story in the image. You don't get lost in a sea of flashy colours, but rather, you actually stop to look and see who or what is making up the image. Your imagination goes to work and you FEEL the depth of what your looking at.

So when MCP Project 52 put Shades of Gray as our theme, I was super excited. Here's what I came up with:

While working on that, I took some personal time to photograph some things that brighten up my day.... with a little vintage grace and colour. *puffy hearts*

The beginnings of Valentines Day is here! The first boudoir session of the year, and what a glam gal she is! Miss K was so much fun to work with and I'm excited to work on the rest of her beautiful session!

MCP Project 52: Illustrate a Song

"Love the way you lie"

Abuse and Violence awareness has really been on mind this week. Its everywhere. It's like half of the world has gone mad and they think that beatings and killing will solve their problem! We need to be aware, be active, pray. Form groups for support and just do what we can for our loved ones and those we don't even know yet.

I Heart Faces- Smile

"Children come into this world with fresh eyes to see all that is beautiful, embrace all that is joyful, and love unconditionally with open heats and minds."

"Smiling is infectious,
You can catch it like the flu.
Someone smiled at me today,
And I started smiling too."

-- Authors Unknown

Without further ado.... If this doesn't bring a smile to your face, I don't know what will! This was a completely spontaneous session done at my house where brother and sister met a couple of new "friends". Enjoy! =)

Still Time!

I Heart Faces- Best of 2010

Another year come and gone and when looking back, I would say it has been successful. I've had alot of growing pains and alot more growing joys. I have loved meeting so many new and wonderful people this year, and the group at I Heart Faces is one of them!

This weeks contest is the best of. Wow... sooo incredibly hard to choose. Not because I feel my work is so spectacular, but because each individual session was special making certain images pull on my heart stings.

But this is the image I chose. Bubba is sweet little boy with Downs Syndrome. His heart is as big as the sea and his interest in life should be an inspiration to us all.

"Precious in His sight"
