I love coffee. Sometimes people try to switch my coffee to decaf when I’m not looking. I can always tell the difference. I also like Pringles, but only the reduced fat kind because they crunch better when you bite into them and they don’t leave grease on your fingers. I’m…

When I was looking to buy my wedding invitations (back in April), I found a lot of designers on Etsy. After narrowing it down to a couple different designs/companies, I contacted both for their pricing list. One was pretty significantly more expensive–almost $2 per invitation more.

When talking to people about photography, I hear one phrase over and over again: Kids and dogs are the hardest subjects to photograph.

Last week, Sean and I had our morning coffee on the balcony and watched as the Enterprise shuttle was pulled down the Hudson on a tug boat. It’s on its way to the Intrepid and I can’t wait to see it up close at the museum!

Rag Dolls and Kayaks

This photo was taken in…you guessed it…Ireland. Where the majority of my photographs will be set for a while. This store in Round Stone was so tiny that most of the items for sale spilled out onto the sidewalk. And though Sean and I were not in the market for a kayak or an inflatable boat, in that little white basket in the back of the photo, I found an adorable rag doll for Adelynn for Christmas.  I personally think she would have preferred the mini green striped boat in the background, but I don’t think that would have worked well as a carry on item.

Loving Jesus/Creepy Jesus

Loving Jesus/Creepy Jesus

This photograph was taken with my Hasselblad in Ireland. As we were driving to the town of Round Stone, this church was on the side of the road quite randomly. It was beautiful…statues surrounded the church and below the hill in a little outlet was a bubbling brook and canopy of trees.

Here, obviously, we have Jesus. Doesn’t he look welcoming with his hand out like that? Sean thinks the photo looks creepy…and I’m all, “That’s only the Devil speaking, because you’re an atheist.”
