I Heart Faces - Slice of Life

Most of the pictures I take are "lifestyle" photos, as I try to capture my childrens' lives without posing them.  I love to capture their expressions, as I feel those are the most touching.  I found this picture that I never even realized I had taken over the summer and fell in love with it.  It's amazing how you can look at a picture months after you've taken it and suddenly realize the beauty.  I captured this momentof my husband and daughter watching fireworks on July 4th.  My daughter was SO tired, yet scared  of and intrigued with the fireworks.  I love it.

Don't Cry Over Spilled Juice

Juice boxes are great...convenient, portable, and fun for kids.  However, my two year old always insists on squeezing the box to watch the laws of gravity squirt the juice out the top of the straw and then all over everything in a two foot radius.  A dear friend taught me this little trick...there are tabs on either side of the juice box.  Flip them up, tell your tot to hold those rather than the box, and you will should be mess free!  My daughter was the perfect model this weekend as she sipped on a juice box while we boated!

I Heart Faces - Best Face of February

This photo I'm entering into the Best Face of February is one I took of my husband and daughter one day when we were on a walk.  We happened to catch a lacrosse game at a school down the road and my daughter was completely intrigued.  I think it's such a sweet "father daughter" picture, even though you can't see my husband's face.  The natural light made my daughter's skin look smooth as ever - I did not use any skin smoothening filter on this photo.  As always, comments are appreciated.
