The Bloom Forum Project – Week 24/52 of 2011 – Landscape | Baltimore Maryland Photographer

Jun
26

This week on the Bloom Forum Fab {15} group is one of my favorite themes, landscapes. I love rolling hills, gorgeous colors, beautiful flowers, mountains, farms, barns and animals. I drove by all of these things throughout the week and thought about how many places near my house I could take wonderful landscape shots. But unfortunately, this week was too crazy and it slipped me by. But the end of the week led up to some views that I don’t normally see, the city. We had our yearly baseball company outing and I thought these shots would make for something totally different from my normal landscape shot.

Here was the view from our dinner buffet. The lovely downtown cityscape.

Then this was the view from our seats at dusk.

After dealing with squirmy girls, a very excited son, many potty breaks and a 12 inning game, this was our finale.

Yup fireworks have nothing to do with landscapes, but they were oh so pretty. :)

Now for some more awesome landscape shots please continue on to the talented Rachel McPhillips of Rachel McPhillips Photography of Cullman, AL.

The Bloom Forum Project – Week 23/52 of 2011 – Strength | Maryland Children Photography

Jun
19

This week on The Bloom Forum’s Fab {15} weekly group is strength. This fits perfectly for today since its Father’s Day.
The strength of our family is definitely my husband.
He does all of the heavy lifting around this house, literally and figuratively.
He is a great cook and the little one says he makes the best pancakes.
He strong-arms waking up the kids and getting them ready for school.
He tries to keep me sane while house-building, renting and worrying – which is a huge feat.
He totes the kids to karate, scouts and dancing and gabbs with the other mothers…and fathers.
He also acts as a great mommy-substitute when I have to go out of town.

So we wish him a Happy Father’s Day to the strong man who we love very much!

And, a little Father’s Day Humor:
When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.
~ Mark Twain

Please continue on the circle to the wonderful Ali from Alison Crane Photography for her strength. And I wish all of the Dads out there a Happy Father’s Day.

The Bloom Forum Project – Week 22/52 of 2011 – Flowers | Dayton Maryland Photography

Jun
12

Its time for our weekly post from our Fab {15} group from The Bloom Forum.  If you are a photographer you will love this amazing forum.

Flowers are one of my favorite subjects to shoot. They don’t complain, whine or make funny faces. However, there are zero flowers at this rental house. Its unlike my last place which had tons of beautiful flowers to photograph. I thought I would buy a beautiful bouquet and take some lovely shots of those but instead, while visiting our new house (see previous blog post for updated shots) I decided to take the kids on a nature walk and look for some natural wild flowers…and maybe some weeds. This is what we found.

As always, please continue on the circle by visiting Rachel McPhillips from Rachel McPhillips Photography of Cullman, AL for some more beautiful flower shots.

The Bloom Forum Project – Week 21/52 of 2011 – Curves/Lines/Symmetry | Dayton Maryland Photography

Jun
05

This has been a very fun and exciting year. I am part of a wonderful photography forum, The Bloom Forum, and I am also a part of a group of awesome women who take on a new theme each week to post about.

In addition to that, this year we are building a new house. Building a new house is very overwhelming and stressful but also magnificent. Watching a house being built from the ground up is quite interesting. You get the opportunity to document specific milestones during the build that you wouldn’t normally get the experience, such as sitting on the foundation before walls go up, standing in the basement and seeing the sky and this week’s milestone which fit perfectly with the theme of the week – Lines/Symmetry.

The trusses have been set and the roof has yet to be shingled which makes for beautiful roof lines and sun flare that normally disappear behind the ceilings.

Even from the outside there are some beautiful symmetrical lines from the dormers to the porch.
