~Pics from last week~

It’s been a long time since I have taken pictures of all the children together in a semi-staged photo. I think the last time was our family Christmas picture. Lots of reasons…I was so sick for months with this pregnancy, then so tired all the time, and of course there is the rain and cold here that makes being outside miserable. But I have really been wanting to get back in to taking pictures again. I have a new lens- 50mm- that I want to practice with. And I want memories of all these days.

So camera out, children all dressed, props in hand, we headed to the orchard. But it was a bad time of the day. Late afternoon, with the sun setting behind us. Lots of shadows from all the trees. And the grass was so long that the children complained that it hurt their feet. (Give them a few weeks of being barefoot this Spring, and they won’t even notice!) We ended up on the side of the barn. I love the boards, they make for a great backdrop any day. So here are a few pics from that afternoon.

A jet that one of the boys spotted!

Hmm.. I love Jesus. I love my husband, Eric. I love my 8 beautiful children. I loved living in California. I love sunshine and the beach. Shopping at farmers market and the little stores downtown where I can bargin for the best deal. I love to sew and make things. I love spending time with girlfriends encouraging each other. Date nights with Eric are fabulous. I love ballroom dancing with him. The smell of my new little baby and the miracle of their existance. I love italian food- or just about all of Italy for that matter. I love art- paintings on my wall that I know personally who painted them.

    Wow. You really have an eye (Or rather, two eyes) for portrats. I probably would have had them all just standing there smiling. I really like the first one with them all lined up and the two youngest standing on chairs.Can’t wait for more!Paul Leavitt
