I like to share a little of the personal me here on my blog and well I pretty much have slacked in that department.
Well I haven’t really been out there doing anything in the photography world except on the personal level.

I figured this would be a great way to share with you some of my daily life and you can get to know me a little better.

All photos are in order and all from 2014.

I had lots of changes in 2014 and one of them was eating and drinking more healthy. So my sister-in-law and I choose to try out this Lemon and Cucumber water. It is a bit sour but I personally love it!!

This is my sister-in-law. Isn’t she Beautiful? We took some photos of her for her fitness page (Getting Fit with Charlene) and a photo for her Scentsy business cards and website. =)

We were on our way back from one of my nephews hockey’s game and we got to see this plane landing. How cool right?

And of course we got lots and lots of snow this year. It was beautiful but I am really not a fan. Haha.

After seeing Frozen everyone wanted to make a Olaf. Hehe. So Char and the kids headed outside to make their own version of Olaf. They had a blast out there. There was more playing by the kids then building Olaf. Haha. Poor Char.

Took the kids to the park and they headed over to the baseball field and here you have Jaiden working very hard on… I’m not even sure. Hahaha

When we got home from the park the other kids wanted to climb the tree in our front yard. Larry didn’t want to be in the photograph while Syd was all smiles!!!

My nephew doing his thing at his hockey game!! GO LARRY!!!

We had Mr. Softie one night and of course this is how Jaiden comes to me. Gotta love em.

We took a trip to Mayfair Day. Syd killed at the dunk tank. Girl has an arm on her and Larry got a few hits in there too!! Both did great and had a blast knocking the guy in the water.

At Mayfair Day we did lots of fun things and Sand-art was one of them. The kids made some cool ones!!

We had water fights. Pulled out the hose, buckets and pots and everyone got soaked… Except me because I had my camera.. haha Great way to avoid getting soaked!

We took in a new dog. He is a 4-year-old Chihuahua and was Paco but we gave him a nickname of Yoda which now he answers too. We had to give him a Star Wars name to go with Chewy and Leia. However, Yoda is sadly no longer with us but he is in a great home and we still can see him and get to see photos!

Leaving on of my nephews hockey games I got this beautiful photo of the sun starting to set!

We go to the pool a lot in the afternoon and here we have Syd having fun in the pool. The kids were having so much fun playing Marco Polo and a few other games!

Here Jaiden is looking around and chilling in the pool.

So these are some of the photos I have taken through out the year so far. There are plenty more where these came from but these are some of my favorite. I will be sure to take my camera with me every where I go and get even more photos!

I hope you all enjoyed these photos. I promise to have another post like this soon. I am planning a post with pictures of food soon. Hehe who doesn’t love food.

Enjoy the photos! Can’t wait to see all your wonderful comments!

      Becca, we love adding fruits and stuff to our water! It’s a nice break from plain water!! =D

    Ahhh, infused water is delicious. A great tasty alternative to sugary summer drinks. Paco (or Yoda) is adorable too.

      Cory, I couldn’t agree more. I hate drinking stuff with lots of sugar. Thanks to my sister-in-law (the one photographer up there) I no loner add sugar to almost anything I drink anymore. =) Yoda, is a cutie! He is so sweet too!

      Thank you so much! The best advice I can give you if learn your camera and how it works and what features if has. You don’t have to have a big expensive camera to take nice photos.

    Oh you’re such a great photographer. I love all the photos but my favorite is Jaiden with his face full of Mr. Softie. I actually miss Mr. Softie. He doesn’t come around our way, it’s why I miss the East Coast so much. btw that action shot of Syd is the pool is amazing!

      Thank you so much!!! I love photography so much! Its all I truly want to do!! I love that photo of Jaiden. I have one like it from when he was little. hehe. We love Mr. Softie. Hopefully if/when you can come back this way you will be able to stop him and get some icecream!! The shot of Syd was fun. There is actually 3 photos to this shot! haha

    You look good in both hair styles. Your photos show that your family have lots of adventure and all of you had a blast. They’re all happy and with the smiles on their faces caught in camera!

    I mean your sister in law. Stupid me, why did I said “you” oh my apologies dear. She look lovely in straight and a bit curly hair. But based on your profile photo both of you are gorgeous!

    I haven’t tried lemons & cucumbers, but I’ve done lemons & strawberries, or cucumbers alone. Lemons & water is a simple detox. So I like to mix it up a lot.
