I am someone who enjoys taking photos, my subjects are random, from bugs to babies. Photography is a kind of therapy for me, I have no real knowledge of the art, I am learning a bit here and there. I use an inexpensive camera almost always on auto focus. I have been using some software lately to enhance, usually this is only when I shoot people. Please enjoy these photos and share them with your friends. For me the ultimate success is knowing someone may be amazed or made to smile.

Snow Day---Tyas and Kearstyn

There are some of these are a little lacking in the painting department, I have all kinds of excuses that I won't give you, the true reason. I got in a hurry and lazy... I screwed up in other words. Enjoy!!!

The Children played a large part in the editing process, nothing was completed with out their approval. A fun time for all.
I was told once a few months ago, by a very good photographer and friend, not to cut off feet when taking photos of folks.Unfortunately I was not able to follow that rule of thumb while trying to follow these little track stars around while they were tossing snowballs and dodging them. I have posted his blog link below for his latest blog. Please give he and his wife a visit they are fantastic photography artists, they have been of much help to me in my attempts at same.  That would be Jim Brandano

    1. Andy thank you for your concern and kind words, Things are calmer now and will continue to improve as I deny the insanity to dwell in my head and heart.

  7. Thank You Jan. I love the images and the treatment. You captured the joy and spontanaty of the moments and that is the most important of rules. Remember nothing is absolute, breaking a few rules can be good lol

    1. Thanks Jim, I am trying to just capture and worry about composure later when it comes to the children. I favor the candid shots as that is how I want to remember them as they grow into adults. Unfortunately I have broken a few to many rules in the past,lol, now I get leery of doing so.hahaha.

  14. This makes me long to experience snow at least once! The children seem to have had so much fun and I love how you've captured that and then let them have a hand in the editing process. It's always wonderful to involve kids in creative stuff...You're pictures, as always are fab.

      Thank you for the compliments on my photos, the kids are easy for me generally. I will have some up of Lew and Tristyn before weeks end.
