in Photo of the Day

I seem to be getting a little lazy with the photos of the day and the blogging thereof. There’s too much life in my life sometimes! But I have still been taking pictures and some of them are quite lovely if I do say so myself.

Take a look at these porch portraits from a couple of weekends back, for example. Taking pretty pictures is a lot easier when you have a gorgeous, happy family to work with.

I love the expression on the baby girl’s face in these. She was tolerant of me, but not much more. I was seriously considering offering up a trade – maybe two boys for one girl? Just for a week?

The following weekend I had another porch portrait session. I have to tell you, I was a little worried about this one going in. Julie had helpfully e-mailed saying “oh and just so you know, my husband photographs like this” – and attached one of the “Chandler and Monica” photos from the episode where they get their engagement photos done. I dunno, I think he’s pretty darn handsome and Julie is simply gorgeous. What a couple!

We’d had to cancel our original session date due to rain, and the sky was rather glum and overcast – but look how gentle and soft that cloudy overcast sky can be!

And this little fellow made me work for it but I think I finally got his personality captured in this one.

Hmmm, it’s not just girls I want to add to my collection. This one would have fit in with my passel of boys just fine! ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of boys, in between torrential downpours, there was a little bit of this going on recently:


Most evenings after dinner, you can find us in the back yard trying to tire out the dog!


I found this on my iPhone from our May visit to Amherstberg and had somehow forgotten to post it before now. #latergram


And last but certainly not least, an end-of-school-year tradition: the first and last day of school photo collection. This year:

And that, my friends, is why I take photos. ๐Ÿ™‚
