After almost 3 years of posting to this blog I've decided I am going to simplify my life and put all posts (for all my children!) on my "photography blog": SHINE!
I hope to see you there!

the things she says . . .

I asked her to smell her newly laundered blanket.

me: What does your blankey smell like?
Tia: It smells pink.
me: what does pink smell like?
Tia: Pink smells like a lollipop!

I was reading something serious.

Tia: Mommy are you happy?
me: Yes, I'm happy T.
Tia: No you're not!
me: Yes, I am - why?
Tia: If you're happy then what is your mouth going down?

B & W Wednesday.

Here is a photo of Little Miss T posing for me after a swim - she cracks me up! . . originally this was mostly pink however I liked the way you focus more on Tia in the b&w (sepia).

to see more b&w photos pop over to The Long Road to China.

First Day of "MY School"



Tia has been a bit lonely since Grandma left and the 3 big kids went to school at the end of January. She has been asking when she gets to go to what she calls "my school". Yesterday was the big day! It is actually Bible Study Fellowship - however she calls it "MY School" because she goes to the wonderful children's program. She is in the Wombat room this year and she loves it :)



I took these photos with my aperture set to 1:4 which obviously was a mistake and so I am a little bit sad as they are not the gorgeous in-focus photos I was imagining for her first day :( They were salvaged slightly by the b&w conversion - gotta love that! (don'tcha think she looks stinkin' cute anyway?? - I just love that nervous quirky smile and those little legs!!!)
