Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

This past March, Isaac and I spent nine days in Maui, Hawaii. Thanks to our Honeyfund Honeymoon Registry (the best thing EVER), we were able to splurge and have the time of our lives in Hawaii. Our first morning in Maui, we went to the hotel concierge and told her to book us an amazing…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

My fiance, father, and brother-in-law. I don’t remember the conversation they were having but I do know this is one of my favorite family pictures ever. I guess this is what you get when the man to woman ratio in the family is 3 to 5. They are definitely in touch with their feminine sides!…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Challenge: Movement.  How do you show movement in your photos? This photo choice is a very deliberate show of movement through the camera lens and the blurring lights, but how else can you show movement of objects, or of the action that’s happening in your picture?  In 2007 my older sister, Charlotte, got married.
