Weekend Update

I hope your Easter weekend was a good one! 
Lately I have been in a funk {which I am going to blame on the weather}, and this usually causes me to hit a road block. Now to some, this may seem like nothing. No big deal. But to me, it is always a bunch of little things that pile up, and end up overflowing into my life. I can only hide things from myself for so long, until I explode. I understand that this is not a healthy way of dealing with things, but it is {for whatever reason} the way that I have dealt for as long as I can remember. But who really wants to read about all this? Probably not you! So on to the next...
On Saturday I had a photo mentoring session, hosted by Mandy over at a sorta fairytale, that was held in Seattle's infamous Pioneer Square. It just happened to be one of the most beautiful days we have had this season {or year for that matter}! I don't think we could have asked for a better day! She had the most photogenic couple model for us, while we acted like the paparazzi! We practiced lighting techniques, and learned tips and such about metering and the basics {such as the exposure triangle}. Overall, it totally honed in the information that I already knew, and put things into layman's terms for me. Here are a few shots of the most helpful, photogenic couple: 

 Oh yeah, I don't take nearly enough photos of my beautiful Girl! Nor do I write enough about her. Crazy, right?! Well here is a start:


  1. She is a 'mini me' of you! Beautiful!!!

  2. Love it Lins, great job. I know what you mean about funks, I am finding myself in one right now. You know what that means don't you? We need to get together!

  3. Nice sun flare! ;) Yours is the best model yet! What a cutie.

  4. your daughter is such a cutie!

  5. These photos are beautiful.
