Image
This boy’s craaaazzzy! 😀
Image
He wanted to try his hand at taking photos of me. He’s pretty good, I must say. Maybe he’ll be the next world-famous photographer, yes? 🙂 Well, the camera gets some of the credit too. 😉

“Q for Quiet Much Too Long…” (Part 1)

I need to apologize. I have abandoned this poor blog, and the neglect is starting to show. Sure, I’ve got plenty of excuses.– I’ve been busy doing school, taking photos, do ultimate frisbee, cooking, baking, playing piano, sewing, etc. I think you get the idea. But this blog needs a bit of my time too, huh. If not for the sake of the blog, but for the sake of the readers (if I even have any, ha!).

Image
I took this photo about a year ago, but I recently came across it again and thought I’d share it. 🙂

About two weeks ago, I did a photo shoot with my sister, Phoebe. I must say, she did quite well considering that I begged her to do it. 😉

Image
Her inner meanness shows through. Okay, okay. She’s not mean. In fact she’s one of the sweetest folks around. But don’t let that sweetness fool you– she is also very mischievous! 🙂

Pretty in polka-dots

Always laughing about something. 😀
Image
One of my faves 🙂
Image
My other favorite photo of my darlin’ sista! 🙂
Image
She’s super cute, ain’t she? But then again, I’m just *slightly* biased. 😉
Image
Cute as a button
Image
We found a pretty arbor that was attached to a restaurant, and took the above photo there. Phoebe liked it a lot!
Image
Which ones of these photos of Phoebe are your favorites?

You may recall that I posted about our family photo session, on Thanksgiving Day. Well, I never posted the photo of our whole family. So today, I am finally getting around to posting it.

A friend is letting my sisters and I borrow her Canon Rebel XT. It’s an older camera, but so much better than the camera we have (ours is actually a video camera). Anyway, Phoebe and I have been playing around with it. It’s quite good fun! 🙂

A couple of weeks ago, my sisters and I got together again with Abby’s bestfriend, Camille, and Camille’s cousin Chloe. 🙂 We swung by Starbucks, before going to the hotel where they were staying.

After a couple of hours, we needed to leave, but we had to take a group pic first!

Image

I have been wanting to do this for a very long time, but I finally made a…

Image

Image
It’s a pretty full skirt, so it’s fun to twirl in. 🙂
Image
Looks good with a stylish top, belt and boots. Kinda Western style. 🙂
Image
What do you think? Do you like it?
Image
It also looks good with a crop cardigan and a blouse. 🙂

ImageNow, Phoebe wants me to help her make a skirt out of jeans. 🙂 I can’t wait! =)
