There's something about the fog that is so magical that I just love. Whenever we wake up in the morning and I see a heavy fog cloud outside I can't help myself but want to head out and explore.. and bring my camera along. I did another fog post a few weeks back and I doubt this will be my last. And if there's a family or couple out there who also thinks the fog is pretty fun, I'd love to meet you and take your photos.. just saying! *also don't forget that I'm still holding my wedding package giveaway contest. If you're getting married next year, you'll want to head here to check it out and enter* Here's a few from our morning.
This past weekend we visited Nana's. One of the boys favorite things to do while there is to head next door to the neighbors farm to explore around. Horses, pigs, chickens, baby ducks..so much to see and do - what little boy wouldn't love it! Her neighbors are really great at letting us come over to look around and visit all the animals, even letting him run around the apple orchard where the chickens are kept. One of the morning's we were there I took my camera along and took a few pictures. Some of my favorites -
I got to attend an incredible workshop last month called Soul Shooting. It was put on in Seattle by some of my favorite photographers - Molly Flanagan, Kellie Hatcher, Rosina Waszaj, and Sarah Robertson. I was pretty much in awe just being able to hear these 4 speak and share their wisdom with us! There were 25 of us in total attending and it really was an amazing experience. The workshop is still taking place per se, as over the next 3 months we all get to interact and do assignments together. I'm pretty excited to see how the next 3 months pans out.. and to learn a bit more about ourselves and our photography. I highly recommend this one if you ever have the chance!
While there we got to take part in a few shooting exercises. The first one was at the home of another photographer attending. We got to watch Molly & Sarah in action as well as take a few of our own photos.. which is easier said then done in a roomful of photographers!! The 2nd family was back at the church where the workshop was held with Rosina & Kellie. I was trying to really take it all in and observe as much as possible, but even so I was able to get a few random shots here and there. here are a few of my favorites from our time with the two families.

My sister spends most of her time travelling the world & figure skating on cruise ships (she's super amazing & talented!). Several weeks ago she was in Vancouver and we made a trip up to whistler with my mom. The three of us spent the night and the next afternoon exploring the village & mountains. This is our afternoon documented. I hope you enjoy!

My dad often heads to this park to hike. It's beautiful (as I'm sure you'll agree!). I've wanted to take Brayden there for a while to explore and take some photos so we decided to head out with papa (what brayden calls his grandpa) last week to do just that. When we arrived the sun was starting to set through the trees, making for some really nice pockets of light and some fun spots to explore and take photos. This boy seriously loves his 'papa'.. wanting to be carried or on his shoulders, throwing rocks in the creek with him, or playing the entire time. And I was even able to get a few of me with him (thanks to my dad for taking them!).
I hope you enjoy our evening of exploring.
After a relaxing morning at home (with hand made cards) and a breakfast made by dad, we headed out to the boys grandparents (my parents) for the afternoon & a mother's day dinner. After arriving we decided to take a walk to the park. We almost avoided all the rain (I love the picture of my dad and him looking up at the sky as it's starting to come down!), but still had a great time. And I was able to take a few photos of grandma and grandpa with their grandson while walking on the trails. Hope you also had a wonderful day yesterday with your family and little ones.
It was my friend's birthday today and we headed to the beach with our little ones to enjoy the sunshine and sand for the afternoon. I was able to take a few photos of her and her little girl while we were exploring the tide pools. Happy Birthday Christine! :) *and a few of our little ones playing in the sand and low tide on my personal blog here.*
