Playing on the bed. Taking photos. Getting cuddles. Life is good.
She’ll be four months in a week. Surely that isn’t possible.
I don’t want to forget:
- Sweet baby grins full of gums
- clutching my shirt in a tiny fist
- staring up at me with sleepy eyes
- little coos and grunts
- smacking and sucking on tiny fingers

What’s a senior rep? They are out-going juniors who tell their friends about the fun time they had getting their senior photos made with me and earn free prints! A mini-session will be done now and we’ll use those images for rep cards. Rep cards are really awesome little cards with photos of the rep on the front and information about Raining Light Photography on the back. The cool thing about the cards is that they are used to earn free prints or product credit. And once summer rolls around, the reps will get a full session with Raining Light Photography, too.
All you have to do to be considered is send me an email with a paragraph or two about yourself. Tell me about your hobbies, your interests, what you like to do for fun, what kind of vision you see for your sessions. Do you have a fabulous collection of shoes? Own an amazing truck you’ve poured your soul into? Can’t live without your guitar? Been dancing since you were four? Live for sports? Tell me about it. While I’m all about the shy, quiet kids, reps need to be outgoing enough to spread the word about Raining Light Photography and pass out their cards. As long as you think you can do that, come on and apply! Along with the bio, you can also send a small (under 1mb) photo of yourself if you want, though it isn’t required. And tell your parents that you’re interested in being a rep. I’m sure they’ll have some wonderful insight about your best qualities.

Ugh. What a week. I had website issues in the middle of the week, which were quickly resolved, but now I am having email issues. I can send mail but am unable to receive any. If you have sent an email to me this week and I have yet to respond, it is because I’ve been completely unaware of the problem. Until I get this figured out, please use my old email- raininglightphotography at yahoo.com

Once upon a time, this little (maybe not so little. Maybe curvy) lady decided to round up her cozy little family and take a walk.
Our little neck of the woods is in the process of creating wonderful walking trails that span several cities. The trails are all paved, so strollers and bikes are a real treat. And they are full of lovely curves (like me) and nature filled scenery, so it is completely possible to be walking amid a fair number of people and still feel as if you were all by yourself. I rather enjoy it.
Anyway, so we decided to talk a walk. John had been complaining earlier in the month how I never seem to take my camera out with us anymore. And that is true. I don’t do it often enough. Mostly because I’m still looking for The Right Camera Bag and don’t feel like dragging my current one out and about unless necessary. (Actually, I know where I will probably get The Right Camera Bag, but she currently doesn’t do messenger style bags. Get on the ball, Ketti! I don’t know how much longer I can hold out since her new spring line is just so fabulous.) I thought that a family walk would be a perfect chance to take some snappies of my little brood.
Tatum insisted that we bring her bike. The poor thing is really too small for her and we have not yet got her a big girl bike. I’m waiting for spring since I don’t feel like hanging out in the garage and watching her do circles because that is what we would be doing if we got her a bike right now. Soooo, we said yes, she could bring the bike for what would probably be the last time she rides it before it is passed off to her sister.
John pushed the Paeton-head in her stroller and I had the baby all tucked into a sling.
(Yes, I realize that the tag is in focus and the adorable baby is not. You try to manipulate your hand around a DSLR while holding your arm out far enough to get the said baby in the frame. It wasn’t easy. )
Why, hello, handsome man, father of (most of) my children.
We stumbled upon some wildlife on our trek. Squirrel, mostly, but there were deer! And deer that were rather used to the humans often found walking through the woods. See?
See the X? That is how close I got to get these.
As you can see, everyone was totally impressed with my wildlife photography exploration.
Ok. Maybe not. But they are so cute.
* You may notice some differences in my editing. I’m using family photos to explore Lightroom. I’m starting to really like it.
