Hello, My name is Carri...

And I am a photoholic.

I have to tell you... the other day, the lighting was amazing. I was in the middle of feeding the baby, and I just HAD to put him in his swing and go try to get some pictures of my girls with "sun flare" behind them. That's when you capture the rays of the sun in the photo. Didn't succeed before the sun went down, and since you kind of need the sun for sun flare, I went back inside.

Josiah commented that the lighting was really cool. I looked longingly out and said, "I know." He sighed really big and said, "Go on. You know you want to take pictures. I'll watch Sam."

What a kid. So I went out and too a few hundred photos... here are a sampling of them... no sun flare, but really cool anyway. I have not tweaked any of them. They are SOOC (Straight out of the camera).

I know you are thinking that no self respecting mother would leave the baby to be fed by his big brother while she went out and took photos...

Even if the lighting did give her photos like THIS one...

But like I said, I'm a photoholic.

There. I've admitted it.

I feel better now.


  1. Those are all beautiful! You are talented :) My favorite is the one of the barn. Don't you love the way God lights up the sky. He is so wonderfully amazing!

  2. Can we start a support group? Or maybe our children should start one seeing how often they are ignored for our addiction. ;-) I love the one with the barn!

  3. With beauty like that, how could you not be a shutterfly:-)

  4. Me too! I'm always saying to whatever child is closest..."Bring me my camera!" I love it! The picture of the barn is fabulous! Do you have Photoshop? It has taken my pictures to a whole new level! Lisa~

  5. I don't blame you for wanting to capture that beauty. Such nice pictures!!!

  6. Carri,
    I have camera envy (grin) maybe someday I'll get a good a matter of fact your post was the perrrfect opportunity to show Husband your pictures and say "Honey arn't her pics great..look at the quality.. that camera she has really captures detail."
    Think I went overboard? Ha!
