rainy day bridals

lately we have been getting pummeled with wet weather, so we decided to pull the shoot inside, i couldn't be more happy with the classic beauty the natural light brought through a window. i am always drawn to walls...blank walls, walls with peeling paint, walls with texture, why? i don't know. but take me to an exotic location and i end up putting my subjects next to the garage door....anywhooo.. the blank wall made ashley pop. stunning.
we moved outside as the rain let up, i loved the abstract dripping water (like dripping paint). natural elements such as this and god's handiwork of the elements come together to create fleeting moments of real living art.

my daughter the cartoonist

we've started a new tradition in my home that i just love. every sunday morning my 5 year old daughter and i sit down together and laugh at the funnies. i am a guy who can pass on reading the latest sports article, pass on politics, pass on current news...but give me the funnies, and i'm set. (i figure i learn about all the politics i need to from the cartoons anyways!)
so this last sunday my daughter and i giggled at this garfield strip, and she liked it so much that she made her own comic strip about "doggie in the mirror". i just love it.
