Some things have been growing at our house! I thought I should give you a chance to see them. Here they are:

P.S. did you notice the watermark on the first plum photo? that’s my new business logo. I’ll be telling you more about the process a little later.

You Capture: Black & White


Black & White photos are my favorite.  I have taken quite a few photos of Little Peanut this week.  Most of which I have converted to black and white.

I Heart Faces: Over My Head

I Heart Faces theme this week is anything that is over your head. They say the sky is the limit. Nothing better than a couple of love birds on a train right? 


Head over to I Heart Faces and join in the fun this week.

I must admit I didn’t take these today or yesterday, but have been waiting to edit them and show them to all of you.  We took a ride on the Skunk Train the other day with the boys. Saying they enjoyed themselves would be an under statement.

Mr. Moo was so tuckered out on the way home that he just couldn’t keep his eyes open anymore. The Train Singer lulled him to sleep with a rendition of Clementine.

These little people are truly blessings aren’t they?  Being a mommy is definitely hard work, but the immense joy that children bring makes it all worth it.

GMYBS: Runaway Train

Last Friday (yeah I know it wasn’t this week), I took some photos for a friend of mine Nichole from Onelife Photography. She and her husband needed new photos of them for their walls, so I agreed to help them out. She took some beautiful photos of Little Peanut for us in the hospital and also my maternity photos. I couldn’t wait to return the favor.

I would like to think that Love is a runaway train when it experienced by married people. unfortunately in today's society true love is hard to find. The love expressed by this couple is truly refreshing.

These train cars sit on the back of the Skunk Train property. They are absolutely the coolest things I have ever seen. It is such a treasure trove of texture and beauty back there.


Just beyond the train depot is the Guest House Museum. We took a few photos on the lawn. I especially like the way these few turned out.



Meet Holly, we just had to have photos of the family pet. She is too adorable for words. Full of spunk and personality.

Last but not least, my favorite from the entire shoot.


Now please head over to Better in Bulk to show us what you have been photographing this week.


P.S. You can find my photography blog here.

Little Peanut will be a month old in two days. I took these photos to document that.

Mr. Moo had his first haircut today. I wanted photos of him sitting in the chair. No such luck. He screamed the entire time, however, here is a photo of his curly locks.

Maybe next time he’ll let me take a picture.

We have been out and about the last two days. I will be sharing a bit about the fun we have been having a bit later. But for now. . .

I had some fun the other day taking photos of some friends.  Here are my favorites from the shoot.

{17/365}2.5 Weeks Old

hands At 2.5 weeks old, Peanut is weighing in at 7lbs 4 oz. Yes folks that’s right, he’s gained a whole pound in two weeks. His pediatrician said that he is happy, healthy, and perfect. We definitely think she is right.

I have been super busy with children the last few days. Hubby has been trying to finish up his last clinical hours for his paramedic while he’s off on paternity leave. Handling three children isn’t so hard, until of course, baby wants to eat.  Then life gets a little hectic.  However, I do have two photos for you that I took downtown during the street fair.

This first one is a photo of one of the benches Hubby built for the downtown project.

bench I couldn’t take a photo of the bench without also taking a photo of the beautiful planter box behind it.

I’m very excited for this month’s theme over at We picture {this}!  It just so happens that my little boys were playing in water the other day and I caught some pretty fun shots.

Mr. Moo wasted no time getting in either. Ahhh sweet summertime!
