these girls are so gorgeous. i used to teach with their mom and dad. i met their daughter when she was probobly 1. now she is 5, in kindergarten, the big sister. they are the sweetest family and it was so fun to catch up with them a bit while capturing their little beauties! there is never enough time.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
i know i have posted this quote from steve jobs before on my blog, but i just keep coming back to it.
time is so precious and lately i have been having such a struggle with the right ways to be spending my time. the things i need to be doing along with the things i want to do and dream to be doing. time passes so quickly and there is never enough of it. each day my list grows longer, it just never feels like i'll get all those pesky "to do's" checked off.
i hope to be a better blogger. that is on my list. :)
i want to spend more quality time with my children. yes i am with them all day long. no, not every moment is quality. i want it to be. playing, teaching, snuggling.
i want to spend more time with photography. learning and discovering. playing. i want to go to a workshop and spend a weekend with people that have the same passion as me.
my husband. my sweet husband. i want to feel like "us". we need to make "us" more of a priority. we need our time. to talk, to stare at each other, to hold each other's hand, to just be.
that's all i have for now. life's been a whirlwind lately. waiting for the calm.

i just took this photo of my girl tonight. it is one of my faves, mainly because of her, that buggy, and the gorgeous sun! wish i could have shot about 30 minutes later as the sun had dropped even further and it was some amazing light...but alas, the kiddos had it by then, there was no hope for any more photos. next time :)
when i processed this photo i used a few different actions from Eye Candy {sheye rosemeyer} & Paint the Moon. those are usually my go-to sets! i also did a little baby crop, not too much...just wish i had made her a bit more off center mabye to the right a bit.
i was shooting with my canon 50D and my 24-70 2.8. gotta love that combo :)
fingers crossed i can get my hands on some florabella!!
