Hello friends! This poor blog seems to only get a visit from me once a month. Just know that I‘m not ignoring you, I’m shooting and editing and shooting and editing… you get the idea. So much to share, so little time. I did want to take a minute to talk about this month’s Twelve by Twelve theme, happy place.

The talented Tampa newborn and maternity photographer, Ashley of Ashley Yvonne Photography will be judging the images submitted on the Twelve by Twelve Facebook page, so if you’d like to be a part of the fun, head on over.

Maybe its the gemini in me, but I have several happy places…

  • the city, especially downtown Seattle and Boston
  • driving through the country listening to Christmas music… rolling hills, barns and Dean Martin really do it for me
  • cuddled up between my sweet boys (when they’re not fighting)
  • a cozy coffee shop (not a coffee drinker, but I do love a good cup of tea)
  • an afternoon spent with dear friends
  • sitting and talking with my mom and gramcracker
  • date night with my hubby
  • family bike rides
  • working with kiddos, whether it’s doing an art lesson or photographing them
  • volunteering for a cause that’s near and dear to my heart

I really could go on and on, but I’ll spare you the extended bullet point list. This past weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing dear friends on their beautiful farm. As I was sitting in their field surrounded by their new adorable calves with the sun shining on us, I felt like my heart could have burst with joy. I have such a soft spot for animals of all kinds and being able to photograph these sweet creatures in their environment, truly made me happy.  So, I need to add sitting in a field, photographing cows to my list of happy places!


Don’t stop now! Be sure to visit the blog of the woman behind the Twelve by Twelve project and talented family photographer, Brooke of Hamilton Creek Photography.

Until next time.
