Photo Shoot: Devin

Meet my beautiful model this week!   Seventeen year old Devin is entering her freshman year in college this Fall. She needed a couple of head shots for school activities. I offered her a full shoot instead! 

This next photo was from a spontaneous moment when I was changing lens. I told her to freeze.  I caught a beaut of a moment!    I love when a photo can tell its own story.  For me, this is one of those....

This next photo is so radiant and fun.   I love it!  The grass was wet with the morning dew, so I put towels on the grass and tucked them under so they are not in sight. 

I had a mixed  feelings about the next photo. I was almost deleted it.  After converting it to black and white though, the photo conveys a air of peace and contemplation.

Thank you Devin!  It was great meeting you!  Beautiful shots! Good luck at college!

Enjoy More!

Like the idea? I would be honored for you to link back to this post!

Cheese! (or Family Portrait)

While vacationing in Sanibel, Fl last month, I wanted to take advantage of the calm before the daily afternoon storm. I forced the kids out of the water and into clean clothes for a few moments.    Coordinating four kids (16, 15, 14, and 11 years old) to not blink, squint, lean, poke each other, giggle, on and on and on.....   wow, only a miracle can allow all of that not to happen.

With the sun setting, I waited for a cloud to filter the light.  I had them face towards the sun to reduce shadows on their faces.

Here are a couple of my favs....

New Website is coming!

I have decided to launch a new blog!

I attended the Haven conference last week in Atlanta and was inspired to expand the Everyday a la Mode blog idea. I will be launching a new blog that ....well, has a lot to do with power tools, carpentry, and larger DIY projects! I have several more ideas that I'm eager to share (more on those later)!

I am 99% sure I have decided on the new blog name (I will announce that after I allocate the domain. It's fun though!).

Another big change is that I will use Wordpress in the new blog. I currently use Blogger, so I am in the process of researching how to do the transition. 

I will keep Everyday a la Mode up throughout this transition. It will continue to feature photography, recipes, travel, and other inspirations.

I hope you'll enjoy the changes! I will let you know when the new site is up and running!

Enjoy More!
