Sunday Best

So, I am back in Springfield after spending a few days with my sister and her family. It was much needed and definitely the best part of my week! Here are a couple photos I snapped while the sis was feeding Ryder.

He wasn’t the biggest fan of a camera being in his face while he was eating. haha

Later, I took some family photos of them. Here are a few:

I LOVE HIM! He is such a beautiful little boy. So sweet, too. :) I posted more from this session on Flickr.

I need to get ready for another session later today. Yay! I am excited to start shooting more. It is my dream to be able to have photography as both my “career” and a hobby. :)

Anyway, have a beautiful Sunday! :)

love, scout


Hey there! So, I don’t have a ton of photos from this week (at least that I can share right now) so I thought I would combine a couple of posts into one. :)

First off, here are a few photos from my week. :)

Road trips and lollipops.

Awesome vintage shops and amazing finds. (second photo by katie) :)

Shooting my first wedding with a good friend.

Editing, editing, and more editing. (photos by will)

It was a good week. :)

Now, let’s talk about this week’s prompt, shall we?

Last week’s prompt was Hear/see/speak no evil. I extended it until this Thursday. Also, I am carrying on with this week’s original prompt: Cold.

All photos should be submitted by Thursday afternoon so that I can upload them all in time. (photos found on weheartit) :)

Happy photo taking!

love, scout

Here are some things that happened this week:

Picnics in the park with new-ish friends and documenting it. We took photos of each other taking photos of each other. It’s how memories are made.

Road trips to Joplin for a family celebration. Dancing in the car to good music. Yes, I car dance.

New inside jokes with the sisters. :)))

I made some of the cutest headbands I have ever crafted. :)

I marked everything down in the shop except some photo prints and art. Go check it out! I want to get rid of everything in it to start adding new items!

More photo shoots for AVENEU. LOTS of shooting opportunities for me. :-D

New haaaaaaaaaaaair!

I took photos of my friend Paris and her brother for a Mothers’ Day gift for their mom.

Little Sophia was incredibly fun to photograph and make headbands for! I made five for her as a gift to her mommy. :)

Well, that is all the photos I have for this week. I am surprised I have any with as busy as this last week has been!

This was my last week working in the local RVA shop so I will be on the hunt for other means of making money this next week. Wish me luck and/or pray for me because I have a feeling this next month will be another really hard one. However, we will press on, like we always do, and keep in mind how wonderful God has been to us. :)

I am looking forward to being able to try to accomplish some of the items on my list as well over the next few days. What does your week have in store for you?

Hey there! Here is a few highlights from my last two weeks in photos:

Crazy weather!

Will helped me fix the bracelet my sister gave me in remembrance of my nephew’s condition.

A wonderful friend gave us a table that fits perfectly in our little kitchen corner!

Breakfast with my sisters!

Everything is blooming outside!

I’ve become a little obsessed with making these! Thanks for introducing me to these, Elsie!

Will and I planted some things in thrifted vintage jars. It was the start of a tradition (and one item I can mark off my list!).

Prepping for and accomplishing everything for AVENEU mag’s shoot week for Issue 2!

I found this photo in my parent’s wedding album. Priceless! I want to recreate this photo on my wedding day. Oh, Mom… I miss you so much!

So, I hope you enjoyed these photos. I had a great couple of weeks. I am hoping that this next week will be just as great, if not better. :-D

I hope this week will include lots of:

Reunions with some of my favorites that I miss very much!

Lots of fun new styles and shoots!

A friend asked me to try making a bouquet like this one. I don’t know where she found this photo, but it is amazing. We’ll see if I can make something similar for her. :)

*UPDATE – The lovely Corinne informed me that this bouquet is one from Princess Lasertron. :)

LOTS more hang out time and meetings with these wonderful folks.

What will your week include?

love, scout

Sorry this is so late! I have been meeting with people all day in preparation of things to come! I know I will share them with you in time and cannot wait! :)

Here is this week’s fun stuff!

The first time I saw one of these up close!!

Shooting contests.

New phone camera toys. :)

Time spent with family.

Time spent with friends.

Horses! :-D

This didn’t even begin to show you all of the excitement this week. I loved it and I can’t wait to get started on some of the amazing projects I have been offered to work on for people. Yikes, I am so ecstatic right now. :)

What was your week like?

love, scout

P.S. I promise to get to your comments soon. I read them all, even if I can’t comment right away. I love you all! :)

A few things from the recent past that made life wonderful…

Finally finishing an update for the shop (next one on Tuesday!!). :))

Taking photos of cute kids. :)

Receiving photos of cute kids. :)

Finding the first real photos Will took of me. This was a copy of one that I found on my phone. :)

Tights… need I say more? :))))))))

Working away for the next shop update (on Tuesday!).

Fun photo shoots and the boy fixing me dinner.

The magazine Will and I worked on finally getting printed!

F-I-N-A-L-L-Y editing the photos from my birthday party. I didn’t dress up. (NOT!)

Getting the privilege of doing a photo shoot with a most wonderful (and beautiful) friend. I hope we do lots more together! :)

Well, folks… That only scratched the surface of my life from the last two weeks. I promise to be more frequent on updating you. I love you all and thank you for returning here. I WILL get to your comments this week. It’s a must on my list. :)

love, scout

Can you believe it?!? My Sunday Best post is actually being posted on Sunday! ha ha

Here are a few things that made me smile this week:

Having my sister help me out with an idea. Seeing her always makes me smile.

Seeing this face in my rearview mirror makes me happy every time I think about it. She makes me want one of my own!

Passing items onto someone who will put them to better use and be happier because of it.

Working hard.

I don’t think an explanation is required for this. I can’t remember where I saw this first but I definitely love it! I want a shirt that has this on it.

Spring! (photo found on weheartit)

Giving the first gift (since making my list) to a special person and then receiving blog awards from Cait, Cassandra and Lindsay (THANK YOU SO MUCH!).

Finishing up edits from a cute baby shoot. :)

I can’t wait to get all my plans for this week started. What do you have planned?

love, scout
