My First Styled Wedding Shoot

Hey guys, I'm super excited to share this with - well, with everyone!  This is something I've been working on for quite a while now, and it's finally ready to share with the world.  If you're interested, check out the newest post on my photography blog: Lauren Kaye Photography.
Here's one reason I have been having so much trouble posting regularly:
I'll try and get back soon (hopefully with this week's Illustration Friday!)

Hello!  It's been a few weeks, I guess. Summer sort of arrived.  A little.  And what have we been up to?    Um, we went to the zoo.  I didn't bring the big camera, but when we got home, we all sat down to draw some pictures.  Holly mostly scribbled big red and blue scribbles over the animals that I drew, but here are some of Griffin's pictures:
A Zebra:

A Deer:

An Owl (in a cage, with a sign on it):

What else?  We had a tea party:

You can see more pics of that on the photography blog.
I've been busy organizing a photo shoot, which we did on Sunday (photos from that later).
Griffin had a Teddy Bear Picnic with his pre-school.  They packed up lunches and bears, and took the county bus into Annapolis Royal to picnic at the fort, then took the bus back to Paradise.  It was quite a trip, and Griffin LOVED it, start to finish.  Packing his lunch, wearing his backpack, bringing his bear - all awesome.

We've been to the beach with friends:

 And Jai's been practicing a little with my camera, so he can do a wedding with me in a couple of weeks.
 Also, we've been gardening, building a fence, and other adventures.  I'll try to get back here sooner next time, so I can think of everything!  Until then, happy Summer!

IF - Children

Illustration Friday time again!  It must be way past my bedtime on Thursday night!  Oh well, here it is: Children.  This is one loosely based on Griffin and Holly, paying a visit to our friend's property - blowing dandelions and dangling from tire swings.

IF - Sweet

Illustration Friday: Sweet.  This one is pretty self-explanatory.

Slight Catch-Up (part 1)

Oh my GOODNESS, I am behind!  I will catch up soon, I promise.  We've mostly been spending all our time outside, between gardening, and end-of-year activities, playground work, photo work, plus general outside-y-ness, I haven't been spending much time at the computer - editing personal photos, or writing personal posts!  Anyway, rest assured we are all well, and I have every intention of getting back here some day soon, with some new photos to share.  In the meantime...

Here, as promised, fire truck cake pictures:

Holly doing some baking, too:
 The still-fun box:
 Our willow playhouse, started:
 Fun at the playground by my parent's place:

 Fun on my parent's deck:

 Griffin wanted to paint his nails like his friend Ella:
 And this, all the time:
