Tried a fun little experiment with some fruit and off-camera flash. Trouble is I didn't account for the condensation in the heat. I kept having to wipe down the vase I was using to avoid foggy photos.
And a little drop in just for fun. I may try this again when it's not 75% humidity.

Oh this is gonna be a long post friends. Yesterday I had the pleasure of going on the Kenmore garden walk. It's an event held every year in my town where people put their gardens on display for the public. I only visited about 6 different houses, but they had some gorgeous flowers. Here's a bunch...and forgive me but I don't know most of the names. The one above is a passion flower and it smelled as great as it looked.
this butterfly was being very stubborn

Loved the colors on this one
They had 2 of these in their backyard filled with frogs and fish
Black eyed Susans
Up close and personal with a lily
Not the best photo but this flower was seriously as big as my head
Next week is the Buffalo walk. I'll have to see if I can make that one. Hopefully it's not 90 degrees again!

My favorite little guy had his second birthday party last weekend. He was anxiously awaiting the train at the station when I snapped this shot of him. He looked so old-fashioned so I thought it was a good vintage black and white photo. We had such a great time!

Yes I know I'm late posting, but we were out of town last week. So catching up-here's my shot. We were visiting our parents in Horseheads last week and I really wanted to try some waterfall shots. There's a great little park on the way to Watkins Glen called Havana Glen that has some really pretty waterfalls. I took my tripod and tried some long exposure shots to give them that "painting" look.

Earlier this week I did a maternity shoot for my friend and coworker Collene. She is due at the end of August with her first baby. She wanted to do the shoot as a surprise to her husband so we snuck off one night after work and took some pictures at a local park and my house. She also wanted to include her adorable dog Joey in the fun. It was my first maternity and pet shoot at the same time, but I think we got some good photos out of it.
