Very Proud of Me!

When I started classes in photography...I wondered if it was enough of a passion to get the full degree.
The classes at HTC were informative, fun and helpful, but the real skill in photography is PRACTICE everything you learn and never thinking you've mastered anything.  In this world of digital technology there is always something new or better or bigger to learn or buy.  I am very proud of my degree that I earned at Hennepin Technical College.  It is the closest thing that I will ever earn to a four year degree!  And somewhere in me many years ago (20 years ago) I thought it would be an ultimate goal to attain a degree before my last born does. Amadeline graduated this same May 2010 with a Teaching degree in Secondary Language Arts.  
My life is quite content this summer.  I am avidly seeking new photography news, styles and ideas everyday through blogs the internet and everything around us.

And here she is closer

 Look at those eyebrows!

I found it!!!!

Image 2685!  Lightroom kept telling me the file was missing.  Everyone knows what it feels like to lose a file.
I dedicated the last 30 minutes to finding this image.  Lily is cute.  But her face in this image is wonderfully expressive. I may print this at 11x14.

Sweet summer color

Angel Wings

Tonight I am frantically looking for my angel wing .png file!
I am revisiting some older shots and saw this one of Ruby.  
She would look perfect with little angel wings...

The yard is so colorful and green!  I FINALLY got my camera out this weekend and had some fun taking random pictures in the yard!  

One of the things I really wanted to create this year was a fairy garden.  I looked everywhere inline for the perfect fairies to start my fairy garden and call me cheap...but 75$ was too much!  And that was just for 5!
One day I went to a garage sale here in Richfield and I found these cute little people called something like "Apple Dumplins" I bought all 13 of them for .50 cents each and the cute little ones are all over my yard.
Lily and Ruby really haven't discovered them yet...or maybe they just look too weird!
The girls get a bigger kick out of throwing pennies into Lake Lisa.

Charlie is such a good grand puppy!  Andy and Sara left Charlie with me on Saturday and he became part of the backyard photo shoot!  He doesn't really look too happy with me.

Lily and I found these fairies at the DOLLAR STORE!  Thank God I didn't buy the ones online for 75$
We planted the fairy looks pretty lame this year!
This plant looks like purple clover....very pretty and a perennial.

My favorite picture of the shoot...a baby grasshopper atop the bunny!

As you can see the both of them were full of personality.

Sam and His Fire Works

I hardly had a minute to get Sam away from his loot of fireworks....but he is the one that has recently requesting a family photo.  He said he was not ready....needed to shave and change wardrobe......I think he looks perfect for the 4th of July photo shoot.
