I'm back ~ Merry Christmas

I finally put something together for a Christmas card of sorts. I've been pretty much off the map and haven't posted anything for quite a while because of some medical problems with my baby Jaden. Nov.15th he stood up (he's learning to walk) and fell and caught himself palms open on both hands on the glass of our gas fireplace. He suffered 3rd degree burns from the tips of his fingers to his wrists. We had to go out of state to a Hospital with a burn center for 3 1/2 weeks. It was very ugly at first, but he is doing much better. We're finally home and trying to get back to life as normal. He had full thickness skin grafts to cover both palms. They took the skin from the goin area on both legs. He's been quite a trooper. Needless to say, I'm totally going through withdrawl from my photography. Today I sat down and did this collage. We tried several times this year to get a family picture, but could never get one where everyone was smiling or even all looking at the camera at the same time. Someone was always crying or something. Anyway, I finally gave up and just did a collage of the kids. Besides I haven't had much time lately to try again. I had bought matching outfits to use for Christmas cards, but with the burns, it really threw a wrench in that. Oh well. I do like how these turned out. I'll have to get my camera out soon. I hope you are all enjoying this holiday season. We are sure definitely counting our blessings!

Happy Holidays!!

I'll try to start posting regularly again. ~Alana

Heidi Ho!

My friend's daughter Heidi was so fun to Photograph. What a great sport. She was very relaxed and it made my job easy. She is such a pretty girl I really enjoyed working with her. I can't believe how grown up she is getting. This was a great day!

First Teenager

Burkley was the first teenager that I have done a photo shoot with. He was great. Thanks Burk for being patient with me! It was great practice and very different than posing little kids or women. Thanks

I love trains!

Holly and I had so much fun on this train. What a fun place to shoot. It also provided some good places to shoot in the shade since the sun was too bright. I think the green train really brings out her green eyes. What a beauty!

Here are a few more of Amanda.

Girl, Girl, Girl!

Amanda was so fun to shoot. She stood where and how I asked her too! What a reversal from my rowdy boys who don't hold still for anyone. It was fun to capture her gorgeous eyes. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot. (How do you choose???)

I ran across this quote a while back. I'm sorry I didn't write down where I saw it, but I did write the quote. I found it again today and felt it fit my mood today. I loved it then and still love it now.

"At the heart of each of us, whatever our imperfections, there exists a silent pulse of perfect rhythm, which is absolutely individual and unique, and yet which connects us to everything else."

More of Meegan

Here are more from our shoot.

At it again...

Meegan and I have been at it again. We had another photo play day last week and I've just finished processing them. We had so much fun! It is so great to have a good friend to share all the learning process with. Its also nice to be with someone as excited about taking pictures as I am. She truly understands my obsession better than anyone. This was such a great location. I've had this scouted out for a while, but today was the ideal time to try it out. (Thanks Lisa for letting us use your yard! You have many cool spots to shoot.) I am really loving all the color. I think I will really miss it come winter. That green grass makes me long for a summer that is already long gone. I just love summer, but do enjoy the changing seasons. I wouldn't want to live where it was mostly the same year round. And thanks again Meegan for getting me out and helping me feed my creative side.
