Senior Pics

Last weekend I did a photo shoot for a high school senior. I have to say, it was probably the most fun photo shoot I’ve ever done. The family was just amazing, and so organized! They brought their own props and everything. Here are a couple of photos from the day.

I can’t take credit for the idea of this photo, Cody’s dad had this one all worked out. But I love how it came out!

Thanks again Cody, Lexie, Kim and Glenn. Macy and I had a great time!

Komorebi

I posted this pic to Facebook last night, and a friend of mine commented back that the word “komorebi” showed up on her news feed from a site called word porn. It means “sunlight that filters through the leaves of trees.”

My blogger friend Martina posted a similar picture today, which prompted me to go ahead and share mine as well. Hope you enjoy!

This post has nothing to do with my photo blog…but it made me seriously LOL (laugh out loud) when I watched it!! It’s the little things for me…I am so easily amused.

My friend Amber (check out her blog here!) shared this on her blog, and I just wanted to pass it along. It’s awesome! Enjoy!

Kentucky Special Olympics – Equestrian

A couple of weekends ago, my daughter Macy and I volunteered at the KY Special Olympics – Equestrian in Lexington, KY.  Macy has been volunteering at a stable that provides equitherapy for special needs people.  I am so proud of her, and so happy that she has found something she truly loves.

I was able to tag along at the Special Olympics and take some photos for the stables.  I’m not posting any photos of the riders out of respect for their privacy, but here is Macy with one of the horses, Brazo.

I was so blessed to have been a small part of this fabulous day.

Fountain Square

Another weekend, another OktoberFest! This was one was in Cincinnati, and the weather was just perfect!  We had a great time just wandering around, enjoying a cold Sam Adams OctoberFest beer, and a ginormous Bavarian creme puff from Busken Bakery.  Yum!

Here’s a shot of the Tyler Davidson Fountain in downtown Cincinnati.

Oktoberfest

Yesterday, Rob and I ventured down to the local Oktoberfest at MainStrasse.  The weather was so incredibly hot we didn’t stick around after we got our bierwurst with sauerkraut and our mandatory cream puff.  Hopefully when Cincinnati has their Oktoberfest in a couple of weeks, the weather will be a little cooler!   🙂

This is the clock tower in the middle of the park, and I’m absolutely in love with it.   Hope y’all had a great weekend!

#11/52 – Straight Lines

This past weekend, one of our good friends came for a visit, and we decided to take him to the Cincinnati Museum Center (also called Union Terminal, and known to some as the model for the Hall of Justice in DC Comics.)  Being at the Museum Center with two die-hard comic fans made the visit quite interesting.  🙂

There are lots of straight lines that make up the facade of the building.  This photo was taken with my iPhone and edited in Instagram.
