Another Year Older

Today is my birthday.  I'm turning 48!  There, I put that right out there. 

It's funny how 48 feels not that much different than 47, 46, or even 41, and I'm okay with that. 

Both my mom and my sister Carol left me my singing "Happy Birthday" voicemails.  I love that and it's something I count on every year! 

I got a birthday message from a friend this morning and it ended with "Make it count".  So true and words to live by every day.

Been enjoying having Alexa home for fall break and took time yesterday afternoon to take some portraits.  I decided that Tony is never allowed to cut down our messy Willow tree.  The filtered light beneath it is just too valuable!

I've been working with custom setting my white balance.  I can't believe what a difference it makes!

Making it count,


  1. Happy Birthday to you! The shots are great. You should be a professional Photographer. I'm doing a photo shoot today... Lift Kits for Golf Carts. My life is so glam. :/

  2. Happy birthday to you!! Beautiful photos and great lighting.

  3. Happy birthday! I love the singing birthday voicemail! And what beautiful photos of your daughter - with the soft light and with that blue shirt - just perfection! I'm so glad y'all were able to spend some time together - so fun!

    Do you have a tutorial on custom WB you can share? I'm sure it's different with Nikon vs. Canon, but it's something I've been interested in for a while but haven't jumped in to yet.

  4. Happy belated birthday! I love the photos.


I love to receive comments from readers and fellow bloggers, even if it's just to stop by and say hello!
