Hey everyone!

This morning, I decided to do a First-Day-Of-Spring Photoshoot! I hope you guys enjoy!

When you step out our back door, here what you see. 🙂

Our peach tree budded, and the flowers are so pretty! I always love photographing them every year. 🌸

I hope you guys enjoyed this photoshoot! I really enjoyed taking the photos. 😄 Which photos were your favorites?

Fall Photoshoot!

Standard

Hiya, people! 😉

For the last while I have been trying to find a good day for a Fall photoshoot, but each day has been too cloudy and rainy… Yesterday afternoon it was finally clear enough to get some good pictures!

I started out with a few pictures taken at our house.

And, I just got some cool new shoes, which I love, so…. Consequently, there are now quite a few pictures taken of them. But, I won’t bore you with all of them. Just three of them. XD

After that, I wanted to drive to an apple orchard nearby to take some pictures there. So I went and took my sister, Gracie, with me! 🙂

Little Brother Photoshoot

Standard

Hey guys! So, I know I haven’t done very many photography posts lately, but that’s because I honestly haven’t been taking very many pictures for a while. It’s because I’ve had… well, what you might call the photographers’ version of Writer’s Block. So Photographer’s Block I guess. XD um, is that a real thing? xD It should be.

Anyway, thankfully I’m getting over that now. So a few days ago I did a photoshoot of my adorable little brother James, and I love how it turned out! He is THE cutest, bestest, sweetest little bro anyone could ask for. ❤ ❤

James, 2019, 3

Those eyes! ❤

James, 2019, 8

Aww!

James, 2019, 15

I love his face in this one!

James, August 19, 2

He was laughing at his brother Philip, who was in the tree. 😉

This smile is sooo great!

James, 2019, 13

James, 2019, 14

Aw!

Love this kid so much! ❤ 

James, 2019, 18

James, 2019, 9

Aaaaah, his blue eyes!!!!

Bonus picture:

So, during the photoshoot, I asked James to reach up into the apple tree, and pretend he was picking an apple. I did that, and Philip said, “Take a picture of me doing that!” So he reached up into the tree to pretend to pick an apple, but the apple accidentally came down in his hand. We weren’t technically supposed to pick any apple yet since they weren’t ripe, and this was his face. XD XD

HAHA, isn’t that epic? XD

James and I had such fun with this photoshoot. He’s the best. ❤ So are all my siblings. 😉 ❤

Also, Gracie and I finally took the video for our Q&A. Sorry we took so long. More on that in the video. 😉 I can’t wait to get that finished and edited so I can post it soon! 🙂

Hope you all are having a wonderful day!

Lizzie and a friend’s dog.

We spent a looong time in the car… Like, 6 days worth of driving… Ugh! To pass the time, we listened to a lot of Jonathan Park, Brinkman Adventures, and sermons by Israel Wayne. 🙂 So it wasn’t so bad. 😉 We did have a few really carsick kids though… XD

Y’all. I LOVED the South. It was sooo pretty, and I loved the people, the accent (lol!), the trees… And guys, the GREENNESS!!! 🌳🌲🍃 It was so beautiful! I loved it all! Except for the ticks. Death to all ticks. Seriously, if it hadn’t been for the ticks, I probably would have moved there. Ok, maybe not quite… ;P XD

Well, I hope you enjoyed these pictures! Keep on the look out for a video about the trip, where you can see all you just saw, and lot’s more! 🙂 And also the video about our visit with Amie. (Amie’s making that one.) I can’t wait to see it!! :D😁

See you soon! (Figuratively speaking.) 😉

Well, those are all the best ones I made. 🙂 I really love how this photoshoot turned out! Both of us really enjoyed it the time we spent together. ❤

Here’s a video I made of myself playing Fur Elise on the piano. (Complete with several mess-ups!)

Well, it’s the first part of the song anyway. I’m trying to learn the second part, but it’s harder than the first! XD 😀

I realized that I haven’t posted much photography lately, sooo… I’ve decided to fix that! 😛 😀

So, for starters, my uncle gave my a camera that’s so much better than my old one! (Thanks sooo much Timothy! 😀 ) And he taught me how to use it, and I’ve been totally loving it! 😀 😉

Goat Rides and… A Water Bottle Hairstyle?

Standard
Goat Rides and… A Water Bottle Hairstyle?

Despite having such a strange title (Especially that last part…), this post isn’t as weird as it may seem. In fact, there really is a such thing as a water bottle hairstyle, although I’m not sure that that’s the official name for it…. Anyway lets get started, with the goat rides. Yesterday evening some friends came over to…

Um, wait, a minute, I think I hear Mom calling me. Wait right there! Don’t move a muscle, I’ll be back in a jiffy… or two… Don’t go away… *Voice fades away*


*5 minutes pass*

Ahem. Excuse me, but I don’t think that Rosy will be back any time soon, so I have decided to take over finish this blog post for her. In case you don’t know who I am, let me introduce myself. I am… well, I don’t really have a name right now. But anyways, I am Rosy’s trusty camera! Rosy has thought about naming me, but so far hasn’t found a name that hasn’t sounded totally cheesy or plain weird. I have a few ideas, but am unable to tell her, since I don’t speak English. I can type it, but not speak it. Yet. 

Anyway, let’s get on to the real reason why I’m here. Goat rides. I should know about this, since Rosy used me to photograph the whole, crazy event. I honestly cannot understand why anyone in their right mind would want to ride a goat. Humans. I’ll never understand them. 

It started when some friends of the Marr family who were traveling through, came over to visit, and spend to the night in their guest house. After visiting (In Spanish, a language which I can’t understand!) in the living room for an hour, all the children 11 and under went outside to play. This happened to include the riding of a goat. Ugh… Rosy apparently thought they were cute, because she grabbed me, and ran outside to take picture of them. That’s what she always does whenever she sees something cute. Believe me, I know.

p1030705

 Guys, she took waaaaaaay more pictures of that than what I just showed you! I’m only allowing you to see the very best ones, since most of them are embarrassing – they’re so blurry with such bad lighting, Ugh. She always does that to me…. :/ 

After she had finished with that, she was randomly inspired by the sunset, and ordered all of her siblings and their little Mexican friend to stand on the wall in front of it, to which they willingly and happily complied. (Wow, that was a long sentence! Especially for me!!!)

pizap.com15467446223861pizap.com15467449401591pizap.com15467448132251

I personally think these are the best picture that she took all day! 

After the company went to the guest house to get ready for bed, Rosy got inspired again  only this time it was for a hair style. She grabbed her sister, Bekah, and ran to another room with a brush, comb and strangely enough… And empty water bottle… Unfortunately  I can’t tell you what went on in there, since she left me in the living room alone. :/

However, when she came back, I was horrified and utterly shocked at what I saw. Behold:

p1030763 

Crazy? Yup. My thoughts exactly. She really liked it, her sister tolerated it, and everyone else thought it was hilarious. But she didn’t ask my opinion! 😦

After all that happened, the day was over, and they all got ready for bed. 

Uh oh. I think I hear Rosy coming back. Please, PLEASE do not tell her I was here!!! She might never forgive me for ruining her blog. (At least, that’s what she would think about it… I personally believe the world would be better if it were run by cameras.) But she’s coming, so I really need to go. YOU NEVER SAW ME!!!!!


 

Okay, guys, I’m finally back. I’m really, really sorry, but I don’t think that I’m going to have time to tell you what I was going to tell you about the goats and hairstyles and stuff… I’m so sorry! Maybe another day, okay?

Oh look! I just saw one my siblings run past wearing a towel on her head for a hat! She was so cute! I’ve got to get a picture of this! 😀

TTFN!

I’m Back!!!

I’m Back!!!

So, we’re finally back from our two week “furlough”. 😀 We had an awesome time catching up with friends and family. In some ways, it seems like we were gone for such a long time, and in other ways it seemed so short. But, we’re definitely very happy to be home again. 🙂 All in all, we drove over 3,500 miles!!! :O It was a looooooooong drive, but worth it! 😀 To help pass the time we listened to Lamplighter Theater and Jonathan Park.

Here are some highlights of our trip.

Kansas

After Arizona, we drove up to Colorado for a couple days to spend time with my grandparents. ❤ And then we drove to Kansas, and stayed at the Cook Family’s house. They were so extremely hospitable to us!!! (After all, we are 11 people…:P ) We had so much fun with them!!! 😀 Playing flashlight tag and kick the kick the can, boating on the pond, and going to the zoo… It was a BLAST!! 😀
