In Like a Lion…

March started with a snowfall this year.  We like snow and we like winter, so we were thankful for the few snowfalls we got this year.  Of course, with the foresight to know that March did not go out like a lamb (it was a long winter), I will say that we still like our spring to show up promptly by mid-March!  :)

Ella's 9th Birthday!

Happy birthday to our sweet baby girl...9 years old--I can hardly believe it!

OCF

At the end of February, I got a light stand for my off-camera flash (OCF) to use in the work I’ve been doing with food photography for a few restaurants and with newborn photography.  Ella was my willing subject the afternoon the light stand showed up.  I was trying to figure the light stand out, so for some images the lighting isn’t awesome, but Ella sure is cute.

Snow!

Yay!  After what felt like years without any good snowfalls, we actually got one in mid-February.  It started snowing in the evening so the kids played out in the snow until dark.  And, the next morning, in true Charlotte fashion, we had the snow for a few hours before it was as if it had never happened.

Instagrammin’ in February

Our February in a nutshell.  Closing in on getting current with photos from the big camera, but, for now, these pictures I posted to Instagram throughout the month to document the daily things will have to do.
