i ♥ Faces Challenge - Blue Theme

For this week I'm using a photo that I shot at a music festival this summer that takes a different twist on the theme.

The shirt is the most obvious blue in the photo but I think the expression on his face can cause you to imagine the music pulling on your heart strings a bit.  The twist in this photo is that the musician is a professional "blue"grass fiddle player.  For those of you not familiar, bluegrass is a very heartfelt form of American folk music that uses concepts present in blues and jazz to give it a different flavor.  This shot is SOOC with a very cooperative sun providing my lighting.  While I have some other fun shots at the pool that I considering using, none epitomized the "Blue" theme nearly as well as this one.  To check out more takes on the "Blue" theme head over to i ♥ Faces.

i ♥ Faces Challenge - Completely Candid

Recently, my daughter was the flower girl in a wedding of a friend of ours.  While we were at the salon getting her "up-do" I snapped this picture of the bride doing her make-up.  I love the way she's looking so closely to make sure she looks perfect for her big day!

Be sure to go check out all the other great candid shots at i ♥ faces.

First Day of School

This year my oldest daughter Elli started the 2nd grade and once she got dressed in the new cool first day of school Hannah Montana outfit, we had to carry out two of our family traditions.  First, the annual photo shoot including a sign with a big 2 so that when I get old and can't remember things anymore (wait, I think it's already happening!) we'll know what grade she was starting. 
After the photo shoot was over, the family walked with Elli to school and wished her an awesome first day.

i Heart Faces Challenge - Pets

This is my Pet themed photo.
While this eagle is obviously not a pet of mine, my daughters are always in awe of him at the local zoo!

i Heart Faces Photo Challenge - Contemplative

This is my entry for the Contemplative Photo Theme:

This was taken of my two year old during our walk home from taking her 7 year old sister to her first day of school. She had spotted the playground and really didn't want to go home with us. Here she stopped and was contemplating whether to follow us home or make a run for the slide! This is my first blog and my first photo challenge at i ♥ Faces ( so I'm hoping I'm doing this all right! Thanks for looking!
