such babies. . .

Remember I told you on Mother’s Day Daisy had six puppies?  They are almost three weeks old now.  


Yesterday,  I thought it might be a good idea to take them outside and let them play in a grassy, shady area. I put them inside a large wooden garden box to keep them safe while they were out there.

I thought they would love it outside and this was definitely the way to go because, after all they are puppies and puppies love being outside.

They were quite traumatized to find out they were puppies and didn’t like the feeling of the grass at all. 

They hated it!

In fact they cried

and cried

and cried.  

You never saw such babies in your whole life.

the possibilities

I have spent the last few days trying to fit in time to edit the photos that I took to the other day of my friends family.


I snapped a load of  photos  and I got a lot of nice shots. 


I’m really happy with the way things turned out.

I’m even happy with the shots I  took just to take.

lets close our eyes and shoot

It finally happened.


I had my first real photo shot with this wonderful family. 


When Melissa came to me and asked me to take their family photos I totally thought. . . NO! NO! NO! NO!! there is just NO way I can do that. 


But, she is a friend of mine.  She told me  I could do it.

For three weekends we tried to get these photos done but, it rained hard every weekend.  It just didn’t seem like it was going to happen. 


I tried to plan it so we could get started early and I told her about the golden hour.  If we started early we could avoid  shadows on faces, I said.  But, Melissa is a busy mom and that didn’t’ work out at all.  We got started at 11:45 a.m. yesterday afternoon.  


When we got there – again I told her I was worried about the photography gods,  the shadows,  and – well, you know. . . .  

You want to know what she said?  “Lee, you’ll make it work.”  and I said “Well. . . okay, let’s close our eyes and shoot. We should  have at least one nice photo out of all these. “


So, that’s what I  did.  I  closed my  eyes, suggested we go into the shady areas ,relaxed and then had fun. 


Now, can you believe I have photos nicer then these to share?

a patch of daisies

Yesterday Liz and I pulled over to the side of the road to take shots of a field covered in daises.

I couldn’t get deep into the patch because the grass was much to high. I didn’t want to drag my little girl through all those weeds when they were up to her shoulders.  AND  I was afraid of snakes.  

Picking flowers

But, there was a little patch of daisies close to the road and I was able to get a couple of shots of that.

The shot I thought I would use today. But, then I captured her and thought no  batch of daisies today.

makes me smile

What more do I need when I have this girl.
