at the beach

i was out of commission for a couple of weeks while my computer was in the shop. But it came back right before we took a little trip to the beach last weekend, and in between reloading all my programs, I was able to edit the photos from our trip.

the Mylin siblings

We headed to downtown Lancaster and Central market to shoot the Mylin kids, who were the winners of the contest I ran at Central Penn Parent Magazine earlier this summer. I picked a day that market was closed so we didn't have people walking into my shot. Downtown there are also decorated pianos placed randomly along the streets to encourage creativity. The kids took a turn with a tune. We ended up in Steinman Park, visiting with the newspaperman on the bench and tossing pennies into the fountain.

Friendship is the theme this week at I heart faces. I captured this photo a couple of weeks ago when we had a reunion with a family we traveled to China with on our second adoption journey. The four kids had an absolute blast and it was as if they had just seen each other last week, not last summer.The youngest two on the right spent time together in the Beijing Children's Welfare Institute and the other girls are their "jie-jies" or big sisters.

On the shoot with Madelyn and Megan pictured below, we enjoyed spending time in the water lily garden at Longwood. I has just visited the gardens a few weeks prior to this shoot, and there were even more lilies blooming on this visit. The colors of these flowers are so vibrant--and dragonflies were hovering about. In fact, dragonflies are particularly attracted to water lilies.

I don't have a macro lens or a super zoom lens yet, but was able to snap this shot of a dragonfly perched on a flower. I love his buggy little eyeballs!
