A Ballerina Princess Day

Taking pictures trying to capture the essence and emotion of the person in front of the lens is one of the greatest challenges for a photographer.

Taking pictures of kids is sometimes a challenge in itself.

Taking pictures of my own kids, well that's beyond a challenge, when they see the camera come out of the bag, they run, then scream, "not again!"

Then they hide from me!

It's not fair.

Somehow, I was able to talk Soph into yet another shoot. 

{ I'm sure it wasn't the bribe of a new ballerina dress to wear. }

This is how it went...

My heart melts more every time I look at her.

Capturing Special Moments

I don't usually take pictures of people I don't know.

I was down at the beach last night taking pictures of my kids and other family when I saw this older woman sitting on the beach watching her husband fish in the ocean.  Something about her and the way she sat there watching him, intently, and smiling every so often was very compelling to me.

I tried to walk away and stop watching her watch him, but I couldn't.  

I took a picture of her.

Then I had to get a picture of him.

Eventually, she got up and joined him, my heart skipped a beat, and I took another picture. For me, it's wonderful to be able to capture a beautiful moment in time, watching the love between husband and wife is unmatched by anything in this world.

A Little Fun

Some days on the ranch are interesting...

Some days are hard work...

Some days are relaxing...

Some days are funny...

We received a visit from a new critter who was obviously lost, he belongs down at the creek, but ended up in our back yard.  

The dogs didn't pay much attention to him.

Kitty found and friendship at first sight!

Banana Graham Pudding Treats

Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays.  Celebrating in Prescott is one of the best ways to enjoy hometown holiday festivities.  We get together on the grassy baseball fields where our town sets up entertainment for all ages.  All of our friends get together with food, drinks and desserts fit for kings.

This year I made Banana Graham Pudding cups for the kids.
Simple and Quick

This is how it went....

Crush graham cracker and layer the bottom of the small 3oz Solo cups, fill with banana pudding and top it off with a graham cracker.

The kids loved these little treats.  The best part is you can make these ahead and have them in the refrigerator ready to go!
