Welcome to my blog!

My super awesome husband gave me a super fabulous camera a few years back and I've been hopelessly obsessed and have driven my children crazy with, "look at Mommy" and "you can have a piece of candy if you let me take 5 pictures", ever since. Here are just a few of those moments I steel away from my uber cute kiddos, and a few more moments I occasionaly get to take of other people...to the relief of my family. I do love to practice on anyone who will let me, so if you would like your picture taken let me know!

Green

After we visited John Muir's house, we drove over to the coast to check out Muir Woods. I don't know if John Muir had anything to do with the woods directly, but if you go to his house first and bring your receipt, you get in free.

Yay for free!



These woods are beautiful. Tall. Grand. And green!

I've been there lots of times before, but always in the summer. I had no idea everything would be covered in beautiful green moss. This tree was so moss covered and damp, little ferns could live on it.


The kids were especially good. Abby didn't nap all day, and she was still fantastic.


We could have fit our entire family in this tree. This section shows what was going on in history through out it's life.


And now for some craptastic landscape photography!

Have I ever mentioned how bad I am at landscape photography? Well, I am.
































And that was our day at Muir Woods. I'm sure you can see just how pretty it is, despite my very marginal pictures.

And yes, I'll stick to photographing people.

We have loads of resurrection fern on trees here in Louisiana. You should come photograph them!
