Lensbaby!

My new Lensbaby that I won for this arrived in the mail just in time to go to the dunes on a family vacation. It was a lot of fun to play with it and get the feeling of movement as I photographed my boys sitting on the quads "vroom, vrooming" away!

Megan in Stadium Jumping

A little while ago I took these pictures of Megan in the stadium jumping phase of the Inavale horse trials. Megan is a pre-vet student, eats and breathes all things horse and has attended national and international Pony Club competitions, so it was fun to watch and photograph her in action.

Catching a landing like this just makes me think 'how in the world does a massive animal like a horse come down on such a tiny single leg?!'

And look how powerful a horse looks in take off!

Avalyn is my five year old Avery's best friend. He absolutely loves her! Avery and Avalyn, sounds good together right?

This is Avery and Avalyn back in May during a Mother's Day program at their preschool. Avery couldn't wait to give a print of this picture to Avalyn and he has his own copy on display. Too cute.

Shadows In The Window

The other night the last light on in the house was in our master bathroom and when I turned it off to go to bed this is what I saw. I think the play of light and shadow framing the window is lovely and I couldn't help but go get my camera!

Nature | Laurie Marie Photography

Two weeks ago I had the wonderful opportunity to take the pictures for a three day long youth conference. I had so much fun camping and taking pictures and video practically non-stop. Although now I have the daunting task of going through them all! The weather was gorgeous and occasionally I got to turn from the action to catch a quiet moment in nature.
