Theme Thursday: #HolyLens week 1

Sometimes Theme Thursday themes just sort of find their way into your photos.  And then other times, you reeeeeally have to force it. This week it’s the latter. Tuesday was Rosalie’s first birthday and we revisited her quite unusual birthplace. We bought her a balloon and attempted a photo shoot. Mostly, it was a no-go, […]

Theme Thursday: December prompts (week 1)

Hi all you Theme Thursday-ers!  This month we’re switching up our TT prompts a little bit, just for Advent and Christmas.

Close-up portraits: Theme Thursday

I’m enjoying these Theme Thursday, friends.  It is, apparently, the only weekly post I’m getting up right now, but you forgive me right?  I mean, after all… wait.  I just realized I haven’t made the announcement on the blog.

Silhouette: Theme Thursday

It’s never good to start off a blog post with an apology/excuse, but here I go: To all who linked up last week, thank you! And I’m sorry I haven’t visited you yet.  It’s the very first thing on my computer to-do list, right after I finish up all the Halloween/All Saints costumes. {insert gritting […]

Same photo, different angles: Theme Thursday

Welcome to the second official week of Theme Thursday here! I’m so happy you’re visiting. Chime in in the combox, tag me on Instagram, or link your blog post up below. Continuing with our theme of light for this month, I thought “same photo, different angle” would be a helpful practice to take up. Lighting makes […]

Sun Flare: Theme Thursday

Did anyone else have trouble catching sun flare this week?  In southern California it was ridiculously, disgustingly hot. But not just hot, nononono. It was also muggy and overcast. Seriously, California.  I am thiiiiiis close to breaking up with you. Anyway, muggy meant cloudy which meant difficult to catch sun flare. But in the 11th […]
