I have some more to share of the fun children’s mini session I had with my friends a couple of weeks ago! And let me tell you, this young lady is more than just a beauty, she is SO musically talented, and she draws the most amazing creations, and she is hilarious!! Mmmmhmmmm… you watch for her. And you heard it here, ladies and gentlemen! I’m so blessed to know her and her family!
Yellow was my absolute favorite color when I was a kid. When I was 6, we moved to a new house, and my parents let me pick the wallpaper and carpet for my room. Wow, were they brave… I was in love with yellow, and being the late 70’s, I found a fabulous patchwork wallpaper with oranges, greens, and yellows, and I HAD to have yellow carpet. I remember my mom trying to talk me out of it, but I wouldn’t budge. So, my floors became a pale banana yellow, and I was in heaven. Until my sister spilled red makeup on the floor that would not come out… Now yellow is my daughter’s favorite color. But we are not wallpapering or getting new carpet.
At I Heart Faces this week, the theme is yellow! I’ve never done a color themed photo, and it was SO fun thinking of all the possibilities!! I wish I had more time to devote to a gloriously yellow themed photo, but this is what we came up with in our short amount of time.
Add some more sunshiney yellow to your day by visiting I Heart Faces!!
When Amanda stepped out of the truck with amazing heels and a purple top that matched the flowers in the spot I thought would look perfect for a photo series, I knew we were going to have fun. The location she and her mom picked was gorgeous… and though the clouds didn’t seem to be cooperating with the evening sun we were hoping for, we grabbed the glimpses of sunshine we got, and her stunning eyes popped amazingly in the shade. Her aspirations in politics and desire to pursue her dreams did not surprise me the more conversation we had… her intelligence and love for life was obvious.
Amanda, it was so wonderful to meet you and your mom! I hope you enjoy these last few days of your senior year… and treasure each second. I will be looking for your name as a rising star in D.C. in the near future!
My husband, Ben, and I love the country. Before we moved to sunny Cali, we lived in an old 1930’s farmhouse in Illinois. It was on just about 3 acres, which was perfect — not too much to keep up with, but plenty of room for the youngin’s to play and the dogs to run. We even had a couple of sheep, just to “baaa” at, and for the kids to feed. It was so incredibly peaceful, and being mostly introverted, I enjoyed just being there, at home. The house was falling apart in areas, but it was just so… homey. And full of character. Swimming pool blue walls in the kitchen, pumpkin in the living room… not bright colors, but the kind that you just want to breathe in. Very comforting.
Travelling out to my friends’ parents home on Sunday reminded me how much I miss being out in the open, seeing unbroken green for miles. Their ranch was just gorgeous with incredible views… as my friend drove me around on his father’s “Gator,” I could picture so many photo ideas that my head was spinning!! After they had enough of me snapping away, we finally got to enjoy the smell we had been inhaling all day as Grandpa had been barbequing! And it was GOOD.
The grandkids get to spend many weekends at the ranch, playing with the horses and exploring, and spending time with their sweet and wonderfully kind grandparents. You all are tremendously blessed to have such a beautiful family — inside and out!! Thank you for the delicious meal, and for allowing me to be part of your evening and capture this time in your lives!
Love this one of the kids just playing around up on the hill. I will have more for you to see soon!
