Fall Garden.

The Newlyweds (my brother and his wife) live in a small apartment, but they have a nice back porch area just big enough for some potted plants.
About a month and a half ago, Shawn decided to take advantage of this outdoor space and plant a few fall vegetables- tomatoes and squash.
He also has a variety of flowers.
They hosted me, my niece, and my other sister-in-law for a delightful meal last night,
After dinner, I took some snapshots of his growing "garden."

Not sure if he has any flowers left after Adeline discovered them..

This may be my favorite picture I've taken of her yet.

Aren't freshly snipped flowers the most beautiful sight?
They make such a lovely addition to the dinner table or bathroom counter.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

"All You Have To Do Is Call"





This has been a long-term project. I've collected many photos of this style, over the past couple of years.  Just recently, it occurred to me that I could make a time sequence out of them.
Last month I went on a road-trip to North Georgia and completed the last of the four seasons- Fall!
I'd like to display them somehow. 
Any ideas?

P.S. These are my hands in every photo. Which means, that I did not actually operate the camera. However, I did "style" the photograph, which totally counts. :)

Do y'all get sick of this face?
Cause I sure don't.

 'I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. 
It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn't it? Look at these maple branches. Don't they give you a thrill--several thrills? I'm going to decorate my room with them." -L.M. Montgomery

Biscuits- The Southern Way.

Have I introduced y'all to my Grandma yet?
I don't think I have.
Well, there's no time like the present.

Simply put, she's awesome.
She's 4'11'' (5 feet if you ask her), the mother of 3 beautiful women, the Grandmother of 8, the Great-Grandmother of 2, and the best sweet tea brewer on this side of the Mason-Dixon line.
She is also the most thoughtful woman I know.
Every time I talk with her, she tells me how much she loves my blog!

This summer I got a few cooking lessons from her.
The first session, she taught me how to make her homemade spaghetti and meatballs (my favorite meal as a child).
And the next session, she taught me how to make her famous biscuits and the proper Southern way to fry chicken- which my Grandad told me "will win the heart of any man I meet."

Naturally, I brought my camera along for the lesson.
This is what I saw:


Grandma, thank you for loving all of us so well.
You are an inspiration to me.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Senior Photos: Kathryn

Hello All! 
As you can tell, I took a small hiatus after the 30 days straight of posting,
But I am back and ready to go again!

A couple weeks ago I shot my second set of senior photos.
It was great fun!
Kathryn is a beautiful girl (both inside and out!), and I don't think I could've taken a poor photo of her if I tried.
The first half of the shoot took place on her family's farm (the same one from THIS post),
and then for the last half we traveled to a nearby farm where she boards her horse.
It was so sweet to watch her interact with Baroque (her horsey!) and to hear her talk of her passion for competitive horse showing.

This is what I saw:

PS: This is my 100th post!
Let's celebrate :)
