Creative Photo Ideas for Fall Babies

Even though it’s hot out now Fall is already creeping up.  I know this because Target has their back to school section ramped up and Michaels has pulled out their orange and yellow artificial flower arrangements. Fall is a wonderful time of year for me because it contains the birthdays of my boys.  One November […]

Happy 4th Birthday Everett!

My youngest baby turns 4 today and I’ve definitely had a good cry over this fact.  We are well beyond infancy, over a year past the last time he nursed, and I can’t recall the last time we was worn in a carrier.  He still says “but I only 3” when it comes time for […]

Rosas Family Christmas 2013- The Video

Since 2010 I have made a video of our Christmas mornings as a family.  If you read the blog regularly you know that I take on the role of “historian” for our family, doing most of the photography and video.  Since most people don’t go back to watch the long footage of their videos I […]

Happy 5th Birthday, Fletcher!

I’m a day early on this one but I’m having a hard time waiting!  Fletcher, my first born, is 5.  This boy continues to amaze me in every way- his sense of humor, intelligence, empathy, and dance moves rival that of a boy much older.  He had a lot of firsts this year including his […]

He has a little personality all his own. Unlike his older brother, Everett is more reserved and doesn’t open up […]

The Joy of a Tire Swing

My dream finally came true a few days ago.  No, I didn’t win the lottery or get a full night of sleep.  My husband put up a tire swing for me the kids. There is just something about a tire swing that personifies childhood; judging by the fun my boys had there is a good […]

Flexing my Photography Muscles

It was almost a year ago that I decided to learn how to use my DSLR in Manual mode.  Manual shooting requires that you set all of your own settings like the ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed.  You can also get more in depth and change your white balance.  Even after a year I am […]

Photographing Fletcher with his Age in Numbers- Behind the Scenes

 Our little tradition of photographing Fletcher next to leaves raked into his age is now 4 years old.  What once was as simple as walking into the backyard and raking ow involves driving and seeking leaves in far off locations.  Those in the north might be looking at their backyards piled with leaves in jealousy […]
