Just a few new photos of the girls while we're hanging out at home on snowy days. I've been playing with a white backdrop and using a few new editing techniques

i heart faces...innocent wonder

During a fashion shoot of the girls today for my boutique and caught this shot of Natalie..

(did you count her fingers? She only has four on the left hand. She was born without a thumb but had surgery in October to give her one.)

from the wild kingdom..

I just spent a weekend in Florida with the kids visiting friends and Sea World. Here are a few of the creatures we met there:

I didn't bring my new camera and didn't have the best lens for some of the animals but I didn't want to risk anything happening to the camera, especially as I was traveling alone with the kids. So I brought my tried and true Canon Rebel and shot with the 28-105 mm lens. One day I'll  have to get a long lens. I have quite an assortment of lenses from the old days of film but they won't work on my digital cameras.

an engagement!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting Jaime and Cecelia's engagement photos. We had beautiful fresh snow for our downtown Lancaster papparazzi style shoot. Jaime proposed while they were picking out their Christmas tree so our winter theme was very fitting. No snow at the wedding though--they are having the wedding in Mexico! Sign me up at the photographer lol

365--a photo a day of ordinary life

Photographer folks over on Facebook and in the blogosphere are participating in the 365 photography challenge: taking a photo a day on a theme of ordinary life.

My theme is "hands." Since Natalie had her hand surgery in October to give her a new thumb, I've been photographing her hands and progress, and thought this would be a good way to continue, but I will involve the rest of the family.

here are my first four entries:
