I’m a nearly 40 something SAHM that likes to take pictures 🙂

You can find the actions Cindy and I sell HERE.

And for some reason I can’t figure out how to add an RSS feed button, so you can add to your reader and that should work.

    Congratulations on your new blog. It really looks great.

    If you’re up for it, I’d love to get help figuring out how to start my own. Maybe that could be one of your tutorials?? Or is that just too basic.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your postings.

    The blog looks fab. Congratulations.

    I can’t see an RSS feed for posts. Am I just being a bit thick or have you not included one on purpose?

    Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge. I absolutely adore your pictures, they inspire
    me no end. This Lensbaby thing…..what is it ??? I just can’t get enough of that effect, it takes me to
    another place like in a dream. Check out photographer James Merrells website ><
    he sometimes uses it for interior shots or flowers ( he did a great book Flowers with designer Tricia Guild using
    what I now think is a lens baby) I SO want to try it out but don't know how. Please help.
    And thanks again for sharing your gorgeous and outrageously beautiful images with me and the rest of the world.
    Best Wishes

      The Lensbaby is a lens you can buy for Canon or Nikon and it creates that effect.

    A very interesting blog and your tutorial is really great. I’m hopeful I can learn it step by step and try to make better photos from children. Thank you very much that you share your knowledge with us :))

    Wow, Just wow. You have a lovely family and God those pictures are great. and where do you live at? Those pictures you took with your family on the beach, around the trees are awesome. I wish I can take pictures like that. Have you ever taken a class to take pictures or just talent 🙂

    Hello Elycerose. Your photos are nothing short of breathtaking. I stumbled upon them on Flickr and was amazed and completely inspired. So thank you for that first of all. Secondly, a group of friends of mine just recorded a live christian album and has asked me to do their cover art for them. I would love to show them your photos and see if one of them is a good match. In the event that we find one that’s a match, I only would move forward if you gave your permission. I only have 2 weeks until this project needs to be DONE, as in uploaded to the printers, so either way if you could let me know as soon as you can, it would be very much appreciated. I would give you full credit and would also be happy to send you a copy of the final product. Let me know your thoughts on the matter. Thank you so much!

    Several years ago, I quite by accident came upon your Flickr photos and have been following ever since. You make every day photos extraordinary like my mother in law made every day food extraordinary. Simple subjects become a gourmet feast for the eyes. Thank you for sharing your talent, and now for sharing how you make it possible.

    I’ve admired your photographic work from afar, and also learning a lot more on composition by looking at your work, and Cindy’s work, at Flickr. Whether all the observing and note-taking has improved my skills, I would say it has a bit … but there’s much more learning on my part to do yet.
