Here are the latest photos of Little Miss Allyssa taken today at 8 weeks. My daughter and family came over for Mother's Day but my son didn't make it. I told him I wouldn't hold it against him. Both of our kids live within a half hour so it's not like we never see them.
Just a short post tonight since I didn't hit Powerball last night (nobody did) so it looks like I have to go to work tomorrow. Maybe I'll have better luck on Wednesday. LOL
It's been about 2 weeks since I posted and I don't have a really good excuse, just very busy at work. I would love to say I've been busy on our building project but everytime we get the ground almost dry enough to break ground, it rains again. We have a utility pump set up to remove water from the area, but still can't get it dry enough to remove the sod.
Yesterday I took the day off work to give myself a 3 day Mother's Day weekend and have been playing in the workshop. After seeing the 2 sided Senior sign that Marie was selling, I decided to make my own. I am almost ready to paint it, and will post a picture when I get it finished. I decided to go ahead and make it now since my Granddaughter called the other day and told me that she had a couple of friends that still hadn't have senior pictures taken. I told her that I would help them out, especially since they will be graduating in a few weeks. I am looking forward to shooting my first twins. I don't know if they are identical or not, but it could be interesting working with them.
While I was in the workshop, I decided to start the other project that I have been wanting to do. That is make some oversized building blocks for toddler props. I want to do a set with A,B,C on one side and 1,2,3 on the other. I also want to make a few more blocks with interchangable letters to use as initials or a short name.
After I put the tools away, I noticed the sun had finally come out and was lighting up the Irises so nicely. I grabbed my camera and took a few shots and then one of my gold cats decided he was going to cooperate for a few more shots.
A little about me – I’m a 59 year old grandmother with 9 grandchildren living in rural North Central Indiana. I have many interests, Photography, Woodworking, Traveling, Oil Painting, Sewing, Gardening and more. Too many interests and not enough time (or money) to pursue.
My passion is the Photography, after developing an interest as a child (thanks Dad) I took Grand Champion in Photography at the county fair at 13, so I at least knew I had a little promise. For most of my adult life, my photography was on the back burner with raising a family and life in general getting in the way.
With my passion being renewed of late, in 2008 I got my first dSLR and I have been a “picture taking fool” ever since. I’ve done a couple of weddings now, am dabbling in portraits and love taking pictures of nature, animals and landscapes.
We started construction on a post frame building in the spring of 2009 which will house a 3 car garage and my studio. I can’t wait. It has been a long process but the studio is almost done and is currently usable.
Please feel free to comment on any of the pictures I post.
Here is a list of the equipment I have available for use. My current favorite lens is the 24 mm wide angle lens.
