We returned from Isla Mujeres late last Sunday night after a week of (mostly) fun in the (mostly) sun. This year, I decided to take along only my iPhone 5S instead of my Canon XTi for photographs. I think the results are OK. One thing is for sure: I found myself shooting more often and […]

Emmett’s at the age now where it’s damn difficult to get him to do a plain ol’ smile without him immediately lapsing into some ridiculous face. Sometimes those faces are better than a plain ol’ smile. Mostly not. Behold:

We headed up north to Decorah last month for a rainy, yet fun, visit. G.G. and Poom Poom even turned on the AC for us! Thought I’d take a moment to share some select photos from the weekend, for your viewing pleasure.

The big news at the house this week is that ECP is moving from his little Big Boy bed to his big Big Boy bed (with robots!). I spent most of the week patching some water damage in one corner of Emmett’s room and re-painting the entire thing in preparation for the arrival of his […]

I sort of halfway resolved at the beginning of the year to take more pictures of the kids. So far, this has meant taking more pictures of Emmett. Here’s a shot of him from this morning, when he wanted to show off the contraption he’d made out of Tinkertoys (well, OK, he was *encouraged* to […]

Never fails. I could take photos of these kids all day long for days on end with my DSLR, and then Gramary comes along with her iPhone and catches a shot that blows away anything I captured. I suppose I should be grateful, and I am. This photo is representative of a couple things. One, […]

I’ve been busy processing the photos from our recent vacation to Grand Marais. So far, I think is is one of my favorite shots: Taken at the Lake View Natural Dairy just up the trail from Grand Marais.

This is a test post for the Awesome Flickr Gallery plugin I just installed. Seems pretty neat. This gallery is based on the “tulipa” tag in my flickr photostream.

“Gosh,” I hear you saying to yourself, “I wonder what Ava and Emmett look like these days.” I’m glad you mused. These shots are from our trip to Sass Family Farm last weekend.

There she goes. Whenever I look at one of these momentous shots of my girl, this is really all I see:

When I saw AGP this morning, sitting on the porch swing with the morning sun shining through her side pony, I had to force her to sit for a portrait. Sometimes when I look at yet another picture of either of the kids, I wonder why I never get tired of looking at pictures of […]

My friend Jay let me borrow a manual focus lens recently. I didn’t get many shots with it, but the couple I did were nice. If I do say so myself. The lens.

Good ol’ Ben let me borrow a nice lens over the weekend. I promptly availed myself of the new glass by shooting one of my favorite subjects ever: Thanks for the loan, Ben! And thanks for the awesome genetic material, Leah!

I was home with Emmett and Ava yesterday afternoon, as both were sick with…something. I can’t even keep the illnesses straight anymore. Anyway, I was home with them, which gave me a chance to take some photos. Like this one:

Completely. Utterly. Irredeemably. Unabashedly! I never did anything in my life to warrant the blessings heaped on me by these two kids. Which makes them even sweeter. Like money for nothing.

I suppose my choice speaks more to my blindness to any flaws of Ava’s or Emmett’s than it does to the technical merits of this photo, but gosh, my heart just swells when I look at this. The crystal clear aquamarine waves and powdered sugar beaches have nothing on these two.

Gosh, I take lots of pictures. Lots and lots and lots. Sometimes I run to get my camera because I’m so excited to capture something I’m looking at, and other times, frankly, I have to drag myself to snap a shot. Sometimes I look at my camera and just can’t bring myself to touch it.

Ava came inside from a chilly day yesterday with cheeks that so closely matched her pink sweater that I couldn’t help but grab my camera. Luckily, she was in the mood to sit for a photo, at least for a couple seconds….
