July Storm

This week has been a gorgeous week.  The weather has been in the 80s.  However, around 8:30 tonight the house rocked with lightning and thunder.  Also, to accompany the storm was a heavy but short hail storm and pouring rain.

I didn't have my camera in time for the hail, but managed to capture some of the rain and a few strikes of lightning.

The clouds beginning to dissipate.

Florabella Project 24

I am challenging myself to take on the Florabella Project 24.  In short, this page has 24 themes for inspiration in photography.  Each theme leaves much to each photographer's imagination.  I will be posting one a week, hopefully in order.  Hope you enjoy!

This week's theme: Morning

Nisqually Wildlife Refuge

My brother and I went on a walk with another brother and his family.  The evening was very pleasant and the lighting was perfect.  We enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the refuge and caught sight of a few birds.  My little niece loved being outdoors.

Newborn Photography

I've never taken photographs of newborns.  After my little niece's arrival last week, I've taken to practicing on her.  

She woke soon after beginning the shoot which made it more difficult to pose her.

Juliet Rose

I went to the hospital earlier this week and photographed my new niece.  She was one day old.  This Monday I hope to take more time and snap a few more pictures.

Today I bought a collection of Photoshop actions from Florabella.  They have the many beautiful actions, frames, and textures to give pictures a stunning quality.  I hope in the future to learn more from Florebella and to continue to buy their amazing Photoshop actions.  They are worth every penny.  Check out some of my before and afters (I've only had the actions for about 2 hours).
