pics and a prize

today i shot my first sitting for the new business! it was a great experience. i did one of my best friends and her family. wow, do i have a lot of room to grow! in some ways, its like riding a bike and in other ways .... its so not. practice makes perfect, so i'm booking more friends before i delve into shooting strangers (with my camera).

so i'm cleaning out my 'edit' folder on my desktop to make room for their pictures and ran across these fun pics from way back...

family fun at walmart.
even ethan thinks this a lame "treat"

one of my favorite things to do is cook for people - especially other foodies. you know, people who know it's Gruyere before you tell them. on such an occasion, the boys helped uncle simon bring down their little table and chairs while i was cooking.

AND despite neglecting my blog for a good portion of the summer, i somehow earned an award! woo! thanks so much to just breathe for this fab and super cute award!
