What do you mean…

Thanksgiving is a reminder to celebrate the many reasons we all have to be thankful.  My nephew and nieces represent pure happiness to me and I love when we can be silly together….or when we can car dance and one-up Justin Bieber.

Footnote:  There was an errant 4 seconds of a Taylor Swift song caught in this video and within 10 seconds of posting it, I had a copyright infringement notice.  This is a re-post due to that issue.  Ugh!

I love pictures of kids…(car game #onfleek)

I begrudge no parent any posts made about their children including the ones with photos. Facebook, me, and everyone else love to see the awesomeness.

The pictures of their lacerated faces when they’ve fallen and cut themselves — endearing.  The pictures of them puckering their face when you feed them a lemon slice — touching.  The pictures of them sleeping soundly after keeping you up all night — relaxing.

These often grainy, low resolution pictures untouched by the cropping tool or any post production represent the realness of life and it’s a great thing.  When they include you, our actual friends, these selfies without the stick remind us that you, our friend, are doing well.

So here are some absolutely brilliant photos s of my car taken by my nieces really talented boyfriend Andrew.  I spent time with him and my nieces today and these are the first few photos of my baby, taken thoughtfully, not retouched, and gorgeous.

Eat your heart out. :)

What can one man in a onesie, two tripods, and some stuffed companions accomplish in a weekend? Not sure what you’d call it, but there’s a video!

I would never want you to believe that when I have referred to or mentioned taking “classes” in photography or videography  that what I meant was sitting in some accredited vocational facility learning the mechanics of these crafts.  I know several people who’s livelihood is intertwined with this industry, my uncle being one of them and I’ve long respected Read More
