…and managed to get into the chair to edit a few photos from the end of April.
I have a few more photos in the works, but I’ve been a bit distracted as King Arthur and I prepare the house for the arrival of Little Dude. He’ll be here for the entire three day weekend. YAY!
I absolutely fell in love with the photographs in this post at Digital Photography School — all about the way children used to be photographed.
It’s simply wonderful.
I love the fact that most of these images capture the kids as they are. Of course, there are the more formal shots that are too precious for words.
My favorites are: the little one with the ice skates and the pillow tied to his bottom, and the little girl photographing the dog. Absolute classics.
I had originally typed “Momday Memories”, which is probably the most accurate title I could give this post.
Here’s my darling girl at about age 2. We were out on the bay with the whole family for a day of sailing. LD wasn’t yet a glimmer in my eye, but Mojo was absolutely the apple…of…my…eye…Yikes! Talk about stretching that one out, eh?
So, here she is, my beautiful baby. I love this photo!
Time for a quick look at Little Dude back in the day.
One of the best daycare providers on earth was our dear Shannon, or Shanny, as the kids called her. She knew all the fun things happening around town and always made sure her daycare kids got to partake in whatever was going on. Case in point: pony rides and photos at McDonald’s (of all places!).
For those who didn’t chase down the answer on FB or Twitter, my guess what post was:
It’s my one-earred rhino keychain.
So many wonderful memories come flooding back as I look through the photos of when the kids were little, but none are quite as special as those of Mojo in the early days. What a funny kid she was! She still is, too.
I think this was her second “official” shoot in her uncle’s studio. She got so comfortable in there as a wee one that she’d wander in alone and carefully touch lights or stands and say, “baby, baby!” which is what her uncle would always say to get her attention during a shoot. Today, getting a nice photo of her is near impossible. It’s all mugging and goofing off. Kids!
As some of you may recall, Orthodox Easter isn’t always the same day as “Western” Easter, so this year we get TWO!!!
For those of you celebrating Easter with most of the world, Happy Easter! May the bunny bring you many yummy treats.
For the Orthodox amongst us, we’ll be back to do this again in May.
If I told you what it was, you still probably wouldn’t believe me.
My beautiful girl and I hung out yesterday and went through photos. I’ve scanned a few (just cuz I can) and figured I’d share them here.
First one: taken May 30, 1994. I’d just moved back to San Diego after living in Colorado for 4 years. I returned home to my family with the best bonus ever: Mojo!
I’m so grateful for the time we have together. She is truly the most precious young woman in the world. She’s smart, beautiful, funny, and oh-so-weird. All too soon she’ll be heading off for basic training and I will miss her terribly. I’m proud as hell, but I will miss her.
This young man’s work is definitely inspiring to me!
Okay, the item in the photo is indicated by the white arrow.
And now you know.
I’ll try to come up with more “guess what this is” posts if you’re up to playing them. Once a week sound good?
Guess whose photos are on the cover?
Any guesses as to what this is?
He’s a handsome boy and he knows it
