SIMC: Family Photo Shoot, circa Spring 2010

Unknown Mami

I've had this photo blog for a while now, plus my main blog over at POCKETFUL OF BLISS, and I don't know why it's taken me this long to share the photos from our informal FAMILY PHOTO SHOOT this past spring. Coincidentally enough, they were taken on a Sunday. So I thought, why not share them for Unknown Mami's weekly meme called Sundays in My City. If you've never participated, give it a try. It's super fun!

These photos were taken in our house, in front of a cranberry red wall. Some of them were obviously digitally edited and enhanced. We had a lot of fun with this, our first family portrait photo shoot, and I was quite pleased with the results. Who says you need a formal photography studio to get some great family pics? If you're anything like me, who's always looking for ways to save money and have fun at the same time, try having a photo shoot at home. The amazing results just might surprise you.

"And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air.
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there
O say, does that spar-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

I ❤ Faces: Prom Night


Week 25 • “Celebrating Teens” Photo Challenge

This is my very first post for the I HEART FACES PHOTOGRAPHY weekly challenge. I've seen this meme around for awhile, and I thought it's about time that I participated. As this week's theme is Celebrating Teens, I'm sharing some photos I took at a beautiful teen girl's prom night. Kim, who is my best friend Lisa's daughter, had her Senior Prom this year. Although she didn't have a boy date, she invited her best friend, Ashley, to come along with her. I had so much fun shooting these pictures. Kim was absolutely radiant and made for a beautiful subject, and the whole family was just so happy for her:

Catch of The Day

Click on the button to join in the fun of Unknown Mami's Sundays In My City!

These photos were taken during our homeschool group's field trip to a local fishing farm. Living so close to Baltimore City, I sometimes forget how beautiful, green, and peaceful parts of Maryland are. This particular "Sunday In My City" was in Whitehall, Maryland, not too far from the Pennsylvania line. Our group was fortunate enough to have beautiful weather; it was mostly sunny, but not too hot. Jeromy had so much fun learning how to fish, and of course was overjoyed when he caught one. And I enjoyed catching some great photos:

Sundays In My City: Oregon Ridge

Unknown Mami


I love Sundays in My City, a meme hosted by the wonderful Unknown Mami. If you haven't been to her blog yet, I highly recommend you do. These photos were taken during a nature hike with our scout troop. These were taken at Oregon Ridge Park. Jer and I had never been there before, and it was a great experience. Despite the 90-degree-Fahrenheit heat, all the kids still managed to have a great time, and I managed to take some great outdoor photos:

Roxy Bathes In the Sun...

These photos are of Roxy, our 8-month old cat that my husband rescued from the steel mill where he works. She's come a long since the day we took her home, and she's loving life. She loves to do all the normal things cats love, such as finding a spot in the house where the sun is shining, and just basking and bathing...

A day at the Baltimore Museum of Art...

Unknown Mami

This is a collection of images taken from a recent trip to the Baltimore Museum of Art. My family and I had never been there before, and we were all blown away by all the beautiful artwork. Thankfully the museum does allow photography, so I'm able to share some pictures with you. Unfortunately I couldn't write down or memorize all the names of the art pieces and artists, so not all the photos are labeled....
