How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
-Robert Louis Stevenson
Now please continue the circle to Clara to see her pretty images this week!
Love, Love, Love this family! The two boys are so fun and precious and LOOK at those big blue eyes! With family coming in from out of town, they called me to take some family images. It was a fun morning – and since the Texas weather can be pretty brutal in July, they were great sports, meeting at 7:30am and we ended up with a nice swim!
A certain song resonated the hallways as the 6th graders marched through on the last day of school.Â It stuck in the Schannen household as the kids asked to listen to said song over and over.Â So after this fun shoot with so many images that typically would not fit for print (at least for most photographer’s standards) I decided on creating a little slideshow with said song.
We did mange to get one image that worked.
To see the slideshow – Please CLICK HERE.
Well – probably the most easiest theme to date for a child photographer.
Now please continue the circle to see what Clara over at Heart Inspired Photography has this week.Â 🙂
OK – so I have been a nonparticipating member until now of a Fine Art group from Bloom,.Â This month I’ve been shooting a bit and some of the images I hope to consider ‘Art’.
A very rare occasion when it rains during a sunset!
Now that you are done here – Please take a look at Cara over at Mischief and Laughs Photography to see her beautiful work!
All over the world….(have that Nothin’ On You song in my head – don’t remember who the original artist is.)
Usually I have a lot of ideas for each theme.Â For some reason this one was a little difficult for me.
And then it dawned on me the last minute when I saw this photo that I tookÂ last night.
When it comes to Religion, I am a very private person.
Here is a little internal prayer.Â It’s minimal.Â Â I have a lot more to say.Â But that is in between God and I.
From the bottom of my heart….
Thank you for my life.
Thank you for my abilities.
I will try to help more people with what I can every day.
And of course, in my faith, no one is more powerful than God.
Please continue the circle to MicheleÂ to see her take on this theme!
It’s a great song and I think of it often.Â It reminds me that no matter what, To live in the here and now.Â It’s no use to get frustrated over silly things (or things that are not so silly).Â Some day I’ll look back on this and just smile.Â 🙂
Tuesday, May 8th, 2012.
Throughout the day, I had a certain song in my head.
Both boys woke up sick.
Washing Machine that is only 2 months old decided to flood.
I had a mini freakout on the phone with Sears.
I will be without a Washing Machine until Friday.
Every towel in the house was used to soak up all the water. We are using small dishtowels and wash cloths when we shower.Â (it’s actually pretty funny)
There is damage to the house because of the flood.
There is a mess in just about every room in the house.
The kids refuse to clean up.
The kids decided they were going to wear multiple outfits today.
Chris HATES getting his picture taken.Â Constantly putting his hand up, looking/running away, blocking himself every time the camera comes out.
Kids get better so I took them out to test out a new location (for five minutes).
Of course, Chris pouted the whole time.
When I try to take a photo of Chris while he’s not looking, Mikey photobombs it.
There’s always toothpaste in the kid’s sinks.
I can never get them to make up their beds.Â I don’t even try anymore.
You know – it doesn’t really matter.Â I love my kids, my husband and my life.Â It’s really not so bad.Â (It’s pretty great actually.)Â The kids will grow up.Â I’ll miss the toys all over.Â I’ll miss the pouts and constant complaining from Chris.Â As do all kids, they grow and change.Â And they will move out of the house.Â Have their own families, kids, toys, mess, complaints.Â And I will miss it.
Then come back and GO TO CLARA’S PLACE to see her always to pretty imagery!
