This weekend was filled with dirt.  We have friends who have some serious property in the Sequoia National Forest.  That means acres of land to ourselves; to do as we please.  It is straight dirty, dusty mountain camping.  Can you guess how much my kids enjoyed it?  And at 36 weeks pregnant, even though sleeping […]

    You guys are making great memories for your kids and they are so lucky to have such an amazing photographer document it all. Camping is the best!!ReplyCancel

    This *ALMOST* makes camping look glamorous. But I am not fooled by your photography trickery. I still say camping sucks.<br /><br />Haha, kidding. Beautiful as usual.ReplyCancel

July.  We have been mercifully blessed these past few days with cooler weather.  I seriously have my windows open right now!  It’s a miracle!  School starts in two (TWO) weeks.  What the what?  Am I excited? Heck yeah!  Not excited for exhausted kids or homework or getting them up early but mama needs a break.  […]

    Aw, love all of these! Dang my baby is cute. And somehow you made me look decent in my grungy clothes and dirty hair, so yeah, thanks. ;)&#39;ReplyCancel

    He is the sweetest little thing ever! I love the colors in your work — they always draw me in &lt;3ReplyCancel

I might have an obsession with taking pictures of flowers.  I mean, they stay still.  They’re beautiful and you can manipulate the colors so easily in Lightroom and produce completely different feels without sacrificing skin tone.  I love the golden light of summer.  Even if the 100+ degree heat makes people want to jump off […]

    Love this, Carly! I love your &quot;normal&quot; rich edits. It&#39;s one of the things that stands out most to me about your photos. Like, if I ever get Lightroom installed, I&#39;d want to pay you for a tutorial.ReplyCancel

    I love everything about these pictures and your comments, except maybe the part about our pool being a pee fest? Ew.<br /> But the kids, the dogs, the flowers-aah thanks for making our home look like a summertime dreamland. Makes me glad I live here! Your shots are fab!ReplyCancel

    Just so you know, I&#39;ve been meaning to comment all day, and to share your page with my FB friends. But I figure, I&#39;m just your sister, so big whoop. 🙂 Anyway, these are amazing!! I LOVE the flower pictures. I love the first edits of the lavender–so pretty!! Ethereal and fairy-like. I might have to ask you for copies of these. And the rest of the pics make me sad to miss a summerReplyCancel

    I think I like the softer one best.<br />ReplyCancel

Oh June.  Time for the bloody heat.  I write this as it’s like a bajillion degrees at 8 pm.  Southern California is not a time for mild weather during the summer, but at least we have oceans.  As the saying goes, “I’d rather be dead in California than alive in Arizona.”  Or something like that.  […]

    Right thats it, I&#39;m stealing chicken butt as a way to make Theo laugh! Loved all these photos and your comments made me giggle so much! xReplyCancel

So much fun at the Farmer’s market.  Enjoy a look into our evening.  After we were heading home, Diva said to me, ‘I LOVE my family!”  I think that means it was successful!
