Little Miss N.

What a wonderful time I had with little Miss N. while she tip toed through the daffodils trying to find the most perfect ones to pick for her Mom.   With all smiles it warmed my heart as I captured these moments.  Here’s a sneak peak just for Mom.  Enjoy!

Very nice. I believe you have a real eye for children’s photography. Love the hat. Very cute.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Here’s a favorite photo of my most precious son Michael a couple of years ago.  He went picking sunflowers for his mama.  Oh I love this boy! Oh he brings me such joy!

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day with my boys.  It all started with being served  breakfast in bed.  Homemade waffles with walnuts, apples and whipped cream piled on top.  It doesn’t get any better than that.  Michael cuddled in bed with me for quite awhile and I told him all about the day I became a mom.  Yes…he has heard this story before but I think he really liked hearing it again.

We did a few things around the house and off it was to enjoy the great outdoors.  The weather was perfect.  Warm and sunny in the 80’s and I spent time in my gardens planting the beautiful flowers I got from the boy…especially Michael who recently went shopping at the school plant sale.   I love the colors of Spring.

I enjoyed  a fine meal made by my hubby of filet mignon, roasted potatoes with onions and corn on the cob.  Delicious!  It was a spectacular day and I am truly blessed.

Here’s a little something I made for all the wonderful Moms that I have had the pleasure of meeting these past couple of years. I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day too! Click here.

Almonds & Blossoms

Project 52 Week 19
Theme for this week’s challenge was “From Trees.”

My mind was filled with so many ideas for this weeks theme.  Just goggle “what comes from trees” and you will be amazed with what does.  Michael and I did a challenge and we actually came up with many things.  I decided on almonds because we always have them in the house to munch on…you must know how good they are for you!  The miniature azalea blossoms were to just add a little contrast and prettiness to the image.   This was photographed with my new Nikon D700 an early birthday gift from my most wonderful hubby!  I’m loving this camera!  Looking forward to really putting it to test.  Tomorrow I’ll be photographing Michael’s soccer game.   Have a great weekend what ever you do or where ever it may bring you.  Don’t forget  Mom!

Excellent focus and gorgeous light.

Wonderful image. Well thought out! Fantastic composition, I love how the almonds are spilling out of the jar, the burst of color from the azalea bloom adds interest and color to the photo. Wonderful contrast in color between the almonds and the azalea blooms. Focus is perfect…WONDERFUL detail in the almonds. Beautifully capture…wonderful work of photography!!
