Happy Friday - Find Beautiful Light

Finding the magic, beautiful golden light and chasing it down...happiness.

Don't smile and say cheese. Be quiet. Be thoughtful. Be still. Be yourself. Be light.

Go find some magic light this weekend.

Boys Will Be Boys - Urban Pre Teen Session

Go ahead...say it...They are some insanely handsome young men!

But, Logan and Wyatt are also seriously sweet and very funny young men. They have aspirations of acting and modeling. I have a sneaking suspicion they will do well, very well.

When Mom and Dad said they wanted some photos of their twin 10 year olds, my instincts said "Go Urban." While trying not get too dirty, we wandered around an nearby industrial area. Tires, loading docks and even struck gold with some vintage cars!! It suited the boys perfectly!

I'll be honest, I had a really hard time narrowing down my picks from this session. They were awesome to work with and gave me so many great images to choose from!

My absolute favorites are at the bottom of the post. These were the ones where they goofed a bit and their personalities really came through.


My personal faves!

Happy Friday - "Mom!! Get Your Camera!"

Like many South Floridians we have sliding glass doors. Over the years, I've learned that the way the those doors open tells a lot about what is going to come out of someone's mouth next. Usually someone's been whacked by a swing or a ball or a sister. Not this time.

"Mom! Get your won't believe what's in our backyard!!"

A few winters ago we had several VERY, VERY frigid days. It killed off large numbers of a significant iguana population in South Florida. As a result, we haven't seen many of them the last few years.

Well....let me tell you...they're back! This guy was cutting through yards via the top of our wooden fence. I didn't have the zoom lens on and made my way ever so slowly. He was about 4 feet long, including his tail. I was AMAZED he let me get SO close. Only then did I see how long and sharp his talons were.

In the process of me edging closer and closer, he made his way into the play structure and eventually the tree. ("Fantastic." I said to myself.)

Be thankful he wasn't in your backyard.
