In on the Act

Bridget had three of her friends sleep over (and I use that phrase loosely) last night, after a wedding most of them attended, and, well, sometimes Luke is just like one of the girls.

His Day

It's after midnight now, so I guess I have to refer to yesterday. Jack turned nine.

Stella asked me to get a shot of her with the doll I made for her a few years ago. The doll's name (currently) is Cinderella.

Back on Board

Henry got new wheels for his Ripstik.

Fresh Air and Ping Pong

I was outside, pointing my camera at apple blossoms, when I noticed the game on the deck.

Before She Walked Away

Stella found me out on the deck with my camera, but she didn't stay to visit or get her picture taken. I managed to snap a few shots after she closed the screen door, before she walked off.

Too Soon

Tulips are some of my favorite flowers, but their season seems a bit on the brief side.

By Itself

I have tulips growing here and there around the front yard. This one sits off by itself — and it's my favorite.

Stella and Jack have spent most of the evening drawing and coloring.

The Forget-Me-Not Ball

Now that life is settling down a bit, it's time to get back over here. Bridget was in charge of planning the homeschool prom, which took place Friday night. It was a very fun evening, but the days leading up to it were busy, and the days following it were filled with editing photos. Bridget hired me to photograph the gig, and I got the last of more than 100 images posted to my website last night. Here's the link:

Stella was feeling silly this evening.

There's Color Out There

I ventured out in the rain to get a few shots of what's blooming.

My Lab Rats

I've been hired to photograph the upcoming homeschool prom, so I spent much of the evening getting to know new lighting equipment. Of course, I had plenty of help with test shots.

Mother's Day

My quiet, relaxing day started with the presentation these beautiful roses from Dennis.

Drawing on My Tablet

Stella, Bridget, and I spent the evening at rehearsal for tomorrow's dance recital. We had to stay for the whole thing, because Bridget's in the final number. Stella was very patient. She drew for a little while, but otherwise spent her time watching the dances.

The black flies have already arrived, and Stella's not happy about it — none of us are.

Rose and Refractions

I love the multiple exposure function on my camera.

Cooling Down

The temperature got above 70 today. Jack and Stella were so hot, they just had to make a sprinkler and run through it. Sam was gracious enough to keep them company.

She's With Me

Stella was excited to don her recital costume for today's photo session at her dance school.

Saturday Morning

When Stella doesn't have the card her opponent asks for, she says, "Go fishing!"

And the Winner Is ...


Stella emerged victorious after a tight Plasma Car race with Henry.
