You Capture: Fun!

You Capture: Fun!

I didn’t get my real camera out much last week (I KNOW!) but I still took a lot of pictures with my handy-dandy phone. Sometimes I feel guilty for trying to pass off cell phone pictures as legitimate photos, but honestly? For me, it’s about capturing those moments of our days that are special and… KEEP READING »


You Capture: Black and White

You Capture: Black and White

I have been terrible lately about taking non-phone-camera pictures of the girls or… anything, really. So sad. In an effort to remember to get my camera off the shelf in my desk more often, I’m going to participate in You Capture again! This week’s theme is black & white. I really never tire of looking… KEEP READING »


You Capture: Back to School

You Capture: Back to School

Yesterday was Maggie’s last first day of preschool. It’s a Big Day, I suppose… though as I mentioned last year, it’s not that much of a change from our normal routine because her preschool is all part of the daycare where she’s been going since she was a baby. She did start with a new… KEEP READING »


You Capture: peace

You Capture: peace

There’s not a lot of peace in our house. Thanks to Miss Screeches When She’s Excited And Also Climbs On Things She Shouldn’t Then Falls Off And Cries Because She Fell Off Of Something She Shouldn’t Have Climbed On In The First Place (we call her Audrey for short.) But when she sleeps? PEACE. She… KEEP READING »


You Capture: ordinary moments

You Capture: ordinary moments

I haven’t done You Capture since last winter because we had a baby in the fall and I started back to work and I forgot to take pictures for a while. Then I started taking pictures again eventually but found it tough to do it on a Schedule with Rules and Stuff. But I’ve missed… KEEP READING »


You Capture: top 10 of 2010

You Capture: top 10 of 2010

Wanna know how to torture a photo geek? Ask them to pick just TEN of their favorite pictures from the past year. IMPOSSIBLE. So impossible, in fact, that I picked eleven. I AM A REBEL. Some of them are my favorites because as a photo, they are technically good and I’m proud of them. Or… KEEP READING »


You Capture: Holiday Favorites

You Capture: Holiday Favorites

This week’s You Capture is Holiday Favorites :)


You Capture: Holiday Magic

You Capture: Holiday Magic

This week’s You Capture theme is ‘holiday magic’. Well, we’re chock full of that in our house! Merry Christmas to all. xoxo


You Capture: Sweet

You Capture: Sweet

I’m three entire days late on this, but whatever. That’s just how life is these days! It’s crazy… but it’s sweet (mostly). This is what happens when Maggie eats chocolate after helping me bake cookies. SUGAR HIGH, FTW!


You Capture: orange

You Capture: orange

I’m a day late, but I think having a newborn gives me a pass (that’s basically my excuse for everything right now. Late for an appointment? NEWBORN! Messy house? NEWBORN! Can’t remember my own name? NEWBORN!) Amazingly enough though, I have managed to get at least some of our Halloween and fall decorations out! I… KEEP READING »


You Capture: signs

You Capture: signs

All around our house… there are signs. Signs that things are changing. Very soon.


You Capture: everyday things

You Capture: everyday things

I had fun with this You Capture assignment- mostly because at any given moment, I can look around my house and there is just STUFF EVERYWHERE. Welcome to life with a 3 year old! it’s getting old, but it’s hanging in there riding in Princess style! I’ve been addicted lately. all the rage our poor… KEEP READING »


You Capture: Summer!

You Capture: Summer!

When I was a kid, the biggest thing I looked forward to each summer was our trip to Kennywood. My mom mentioned over the weekend that it was probably because it was the only thing we ever did (not a lot of money available for ‘real’ vacations) and maybe she’s a little bit right. But… KEEP READING »


You Capture: black and white

You Capture: black and white

This week’s You Capture! so sweet & innocent (HA!) hide & seek ready or not…!


You Capture: Vehicles

You Capture: Vehicles

This is a 1952 MG Midget. It was given to Dan by his grandmother (on his mom’s side) when he was a kid, and it was in storage for years. When we bought our first house, it migrated to our garage (and then to our garage again when we moved last year). It doesn’t run,… KEEP READING »


You Capture: America

You Capture: America

I purposely didn’t post any Fourth of July pictures yet because I knew this week’s You Capture was coming up. The theme: America. I kept it in mind on Sunday at my parents’ house, at the parade, during the fireworks. I took a lot of pictures that day, and I got some good ones (I… KEEP READING »


You Capture: get down low

You Capture: get down low

You Capture theme for this week? “Get down low!” So I did. (And it’s kind of tough at almost 7 months pregnant!) Amazing what you find on your floor when there is a three-year-old in the house.


You Capture: water

You Capture: water

This week’s You Capture theme is ‘water’. Water is my drink of choice (even when I’m not pregnant. Yes. I’m boring.) so I grabbed my camera and pointed it at my glass. Simple enough!


You Capture: Fun

You Capture: Fun

Well isn’t this an appropriate theme for the week!? I didn’t realize until this morning that ‘Fun’ was this week’s You Capture, otherwise I might have saved some photos from my last post for today. Normally I would take a photo specifically for the week’s theme, but since I have such good candidates for this… KEEP READING »


You Capture: Give me your BEST shot

You Capture: Give me your BEST shot

This week’s You Capture is ‘Give me your BEST shot’- just one shot, my favorite from the week. My choice isn’t an absolutely mind-blowing picture as far as aesthetics go, and I didn’t go nuts with the editing. But it’s a great shot: Dan with his sister Kate, who has been in Iraq since January… KEEP READING »


You Capture: sky

You Capture: sky

This week’s You Capture challenge is ‘sky’. Just so happened that the other evening, the clouds were doing some really cool stuff with the sun.


You Capture: depth of field

You Capture: depth of field

My first time participating in You Capture, which is run by the lovely Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry. Anything that forces me to get out my camera more often is okay by me! This week’s challenge was depth of field.
