Photographic Brilliance

Is it an emotionally moving shot of a brilliant sunset just as it fades into night? Is is an epic mountain landscape that takes your breath away? Is is a touching family shots that speaks volumes with the shear emotion of the frame? No........it's a dog......wearing a one year old's birthday hat.

This is photography at it's best. Check out the picture of the little girl and her dog. The dog wearing the birthday hat - genius!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!!

What's on Your Nightstand?

My sister, Christina, recently posted on her blog about the latest book she is reading. In that post, she started a sort of game, and challenged all her readers to post about what was on their nightstand. So, I decided to play along. Here goes.....in all of my "I read teeny-bopper books" shame.
Hello. My name is Lindsey, and I'm an Edward Cullen addict. Yes, yes...it's true. My friend Beth brought along the first two books of the Twilight saga, "Twilight" and "New Moon", to Destin with her and encouraged me to start reading them. (see, really it's all her fault) Skeptically, I started reading the first one thinking that it would take me all week to read it. (we had watched the movie a couple months before, and i wasn't impressed, so i didn't hold out much hope for the book.) Well, I started reading the first one on Sunday morning and finished it Monday afternoon. Luckily, she brought the 2nd book, and I had it read in 2 days. I went and bought the 3rd, and read it on Thursday and Friday. And Friday night, before we left, I went and bought the 4th, read it all the way home on Saturday, and finished it Sunday afternoon. :) I'm sick. I know.

"New Moon" is not my favorite of the saga - mostly because **spoiler alert** I heart Edward Cullen, and he isn't in this one very much. However, I LOVE the whole series, so I must read "New Moon" to complete the set. I decided to start reading them again a week ago. For those of you who think it's a crazy vampire book....well.....you're sort of right. However, in my defense, I don't love it because of the vampires. I am a sucker (with a capital S-U-C-K-E-R) for a good love story, and as unrealistic and full of teen angst as this book is, it's a good love story. And really, what GOOD or GREAT love story is really THAT realistic? So, if you haven't read them, I would encourage you to do so. I would NOT let my teenage daughter (if i had one) read them, however. They are written for teens, but I don't think I would let a teen read them. It's hard enough for me to separate the dreamy romance from real life and I'm almost......ahem....well, let's say, I'm well over teen age. So, knowing how teen girls can be, I'm not sure that they would really tell the unrealistic parts from the realistic ones. (i.e. Edward Cullen quite possibly is the most perfect man ever, aside from the vampire thing, or maybe because of it vs. realistic men who really are great and awesome and all that, but could never live up to a fictional perfect character.) Anyway, I'm hopelessly addicted to them. I can't wait for the "New Moon" movie to come out! :)

So, Christina, this isn't nearly as spiritual as your book, but I thought I'd share anyway. LOL!!! And please, share with me (or on your blog) what's on your nightstand.

Isaac, Anna, & Eli

You know those friends that you may not see or talk to for way too long, but when you do see them, you pick right back up where you left off the last time? You know those friends that you know would be there for you in a heart beat if you needed them? You know those friends that are sisters but don't look anything like you? Well, Isaac, Anna, and Eli's mom is just that kind of friend to me - that is why I had so much fun taking their picture. :) Mrinda and I (and several other sister-friends) have known each other for a long time.....since birth I guess. It is crazy to me that she has a 7, 5, and 3 year old and one more on the way!
These kiddos were a blast to hang out with! They kept me on my toes, but we had a good time. Here are some of my faves!

Kids are a HOOT! They do their own thing and do not even care what I'm doing! :)
Baby Addy, I can't wait to meet you!!!
Mrinda, it was so good to see you the other day! Thanks so much for letting me hang out with you and your kiddos. They are hilarious! :) Congrats on the coming addition to the family. I can't wait to meet her and take her picture too!!! Love you! Lindsey

Saturday morning, I got to shoot Olivia. I have known her dad since he was born. :) She was a super cutie and full of personality! It took her a while to warm up, but once she got going, she was hilarious! Here are some of my favorites! You will notice that I LOVED that green flower!

Eric and Lauren, thanks for trusting me to take pics of your kiddo! She is a hoot! I can't wait to meet the next one! :)


Zoey belongs to my cousin Ashley. She is such a cutie with crazy long eyelashes!! I mean, seriously, why couldn't I have gotten those lashes?!? :) Here are some of my favorite shots we got Friday night. She did so good for us! See what I mean about the lashes?

Ashley, she is a doll! Thanks so much for letting me get some shots of her! I can't wait to watch her grow!!!
