This week’s theme is Friends/Family. Yaya came to visit this past weekend for the Easter holiday, and our little man was in rare form. I’ve never seen him show off the way he did. He has such a special bond with his Yaya, it is so sweet to watch. He was on the move all weekend, so this isn’t the sharpest picture, but its cute nonetheless.


Be sure to check out all the other friends/family shots here:

This week’s theme is Easter/Passover. Mimi sent us (or really just Jackson) a set of Resurrection Eggs. In the few moments he wasn’t testing out his arm by throwing them as far as he could across the yard, I got these SOOC shots. I think I’ll work mostly with the first one, but will hopefully have time to touch up all of them.

I think this is his way of asking for a bigger basket.

But who really needs a basket to carry eggs? It works great as a hat!

I think he’s channeling some Johnny Caron/Carnac in this one… “please be chocolate, please be chocolate”.

Discovering the cross within the egg. Bummer, no candy.


I’m looking forward to spending some editing time on these this week. If nothing else, they are a good practice photo run for the upcoming Easter weekend. Have a blessed Resurrection Week!

This week’s theme is faith. The picture I have this week is of my┬áday lilies. My day lilies are one flowering plant I know I can count on every Spring. It has survived my inattention, my mistakes, and when they begin to bloom early each Spring and then again every morning, I am reminded of this verse:

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness”

Lamentations 3:22-23

I love every.single.word from those two verses. Isn’t it amazing how much power is contained in two short verses? May you also find something around you that reminds you of His Great Unfailing Love and Faithfulness offered to us each and every day, regardless of our state.

Here is my SOOC:

Be sure to check out some of the other examples of faith this week.

It was a little bit difficult coming up with something for this week. The theme is “up”. Who would’ve thought a two letter challenge would be that challenging? I spent some brief time outside over the past two days, in between nap time and work, and spent some time looking up. I actually learned a few things by doing so… For one, we have a beautiful cardinal and his wife living in one of the trees of our backyard, it’s actually quite a lively place, with birds everywhere. I now understand why we have some many neighborhood cats visiting. Also, the sky turns a beautiful blue just as the sun is setting. Unfortunately, I didn’t move fast enough to get a good picture of either, but here is the picture I’m going to play around with this week.

I’m thinking of some tonal changes – maybe something sepia-ish or B&W…
