"The reason why we want to remember an image varies: Because we simply 'love it', or dislike it so intensely that it becomes compulsive, or because it has made us realize something about ourselves, or has brought about some slight change in us. Perhaps the reader can recall some image after seeing of which has never been quite the same."

Scavenger Hunt!

Who would have thunk that the subject "food" would be so challenging for me?! All I could come up with was a snap shot of Jason's bowl of fruit loops... keep in mind that as I was shooting it, there was my child in the background whining "moooom...when can I eat my breakfast?!"

Coming up with a "portrait" shot was hard for me too, as shooting portraits are completely foreign to me. I pulled this shot of Maddie I took a while back and converted it to B&W...So here she is, a "portrait" of darling daughter.

Here is our dinning room "chair." My only problem with this one, is that I wished I had gotten out and about to capture a more interesting one :P

My first thoughts with photographing a "game" was to shoot a board game etc..but after an evening of playing badmitten with Maddie, I figured this could make for a shot for this weeks scavenger hunt.

And lastly, "miniature." Maddie had a hand in this one :D Thanks to her and darling son Jason, I actually had a variety of miniature things to photograph...Here I chose Maddie's My little ponies!


  1. These are wonderful. I especially love the depth of field in your chair shot. I think it's funny that you think your portrait work is foreign to you because I think you do lovely lifestyle portraits of your daughter all the time. I think sometimes we try so hard to achieve a certain style when a natural fit is right in front of me. I think you should continue on with the lifestyle work because you're good at it...don't sell yourself short! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  2. I love these - there all so bright, and sunny. Your portrait is lovely!

  3. Very nice! Your daughter is beautiful, and so is your photography!

  4. These are great...your daughter is so adorable and I love the food shot!

  5. I love the fruit loops, so bright, no wonder kids love them! I agree with Ashley on the chair shot, I love it!

  6. Love these. Your daughter is beautiful and the miniature one gave me a chuckle.

  7. My favs are your portrait and your froot loop shot! Beautiful!

  8. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your photos, especially those wonderful Fruit Loops! My husband always groans when I take pictures of our food... I can just hear your son doing the same!
