Colorful

Oh, having a little girl is so much fun! I never tire of her ideas and requests that pertain to imagination and creativity, even if that involves her temporarily coloring her hair various shades of pastel. She did this on her own; I was only there to supervise (and document!), and she was so proud of the results.

Tradition

 
The best part (of many) about Mom and Hank moving home to Florida is the continuance of family traditions. In this case, it is the tradition of Gramma coloring Easter eggs with the kids (only Lauren this year). I am so thankful for having the art of photography available to me for capturing these moments.

Beanie Boos

She is enamored with her beanie boo animals. I took this photo so I can always remember what she looked like at age eight, these treasures of hers clutched in her hands, as she falls asleep.

Doors

“There are so many doors to open. I am impatient to begin.” — Charlie Gordon

On Saturday night, I joined a group of  talented women photographers for Clickin Walk  Vancouver 2017. We walked through Gastown, Chinatown and the edge of the Downtown Eastside. I was completely outside of my comfort zone as I usually shoot pictures of my small people. But it was a really fun evening with some lovely ladies, a beautiful sunny evening and lots of inspiration all around us. I am so glad that I went . It was a good reminder to be be a “door opener” more often and step outside because there is beauty to be found almost everywhere.

A Gap

A gap in time since I last posted. A gap in projects/ideas I had at the beginning of the year…

Life has been busy, busy, busy. I vow to keep up with posting photos go our ‘life happenings,’ but then life itself gets in the way. We have been living, though, and I have been documenting, so I plan to catch up on sharing. Here is a glimpse of our February; I have a plan to post a few more times during May to play catch up and then hopefully be here more regularly when I am home for the summer. Thank you for taking time to pop in to our little corner of the world. xoxo

In a Pocket of Light

Remember: Always walk in the light. And if you feel like you’re not walking in it, go find it. Love the light.   – Roberta Flack

I may have squealed a bit when I saw my three playing in a pocket of lovely  evening light. It honestly seems like it has been weeks since we have seen the sun.  We are a little bit obsessed with the weather in these parts and for good reason. It rained almost 26 of 31 days in March.  My fingers are crossed that we have lots of beautiful evenings this Spring so I can chase the light.

2017

I am aiming to ‘shoot a 365,’ which is a project in which one takes a photo each and every day for an entire year. I’m not sure I will fully succeed with this project, but I am happy to report that I have so far and know that regardless of whether or not I do shoot an image 365 days in a row, I have already  captured memories I would not have captured otherwise, so in my opinion, this is a win-win situation. Here is a peek into our world so far in 2017…
