Furry Faces--I Heart Faces

This week over at my favorite website for all inspiration ( is the theme furry faces. Now I'm no pet photographer but I do love my dog Jack. He has been with us making our house a home and completing our family for 8 years. He drives me crazy and really Marley has nothing on Jack. I wish I could find the picture where he was literally sitting on top of the $500 dog house we bought him (pre-kids) before he actually ate it! He is one crazy dog and I know we still have lots of years left in him because he doesn't act a day over 2! If anyone ever tells you that labs calm down after 3 years is lying to you! They are full of good fun energy until their last days. Anyway I leave you with my favorite furry face; Jack.Furry Faces

I heart furry faces!

Like so many people, we have traditions too and of course we are still making new ones as we go. But one of my favorites is letting the kids bake cookies. I hate to bake but they love to help in the kitchen so at Christmas its the one time I just step back and let them bake their cookies. I help a little but really I've learned to let go and let them do it and you know what? Baking isn't so bad when you have your sous chefs to do it. Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season. This is also my 52 week challenge photo for my week 9; Traditions.

52 Week Challenge; Twinkle Twinkle

I have sort of stopped blogging about the 52 week challenge that I just recently started but that doesn't mean I haven't been sticking with the weekly challenges, I've still been posting them weekly on facebook. But I thought I would blog about the last one because I've gotten some really positive feedback on it and well I'm not going to lie . . . it feels good! So here it is, my week 8 Twinkle Twinkle theme:Twinkle Twinkle

It seems so many people have been interested in the settings so I thought I would post them. Both of these were taken with the available light from the tree at night using a Canon 5DMarkii and a 50 1.2L.

Tree: f 1.6 at 1/13s, ISO 100
Boy: f 1.6 at 1/250s, ISO 4000
