I found these photos today and they made me miss how unexpected life was in the Philippines. It was simple, and difficult, and happy, like here at home. Just different.

something about web posting alters the coloring of these photos, but i promise in real life the colors are better, a tad brighter, more real.

oh how i love the lee's. abe, amberly, katelyn, and baby are just four of this grand family. my second favorite thing to photograph is people as they are. and this is them, just being them.
making magic is my favorite thing to do as a photographer. light equals magic, and i love light. the biggest compliment anyone has given me was that the light in my photo looked like a fairytale. life truly is a fairytale through my eyes. you may blame that on reading too many books, watching lord of the rings so many times, or daydreaming. regardless life is magic through my eyes and i like to capture that.
i let abe give the lensbaby a try, and though all of the photos above were edited by me abe took one of them. can you guess which it is...? his photo turned out to be one of my favorites from the evening, which doesn't surprise me because all of the lee children have talent coming out their ears. plus a few have already proved their skill with a camera.

Devan loves dance parties, as you see in a few of the photos above. She also has a contagious laughter and one of the most beautiful purple flower prints that could be put on a dress. I couldn't help but smirk when she exclaimed during our photo shoot "I just love muscles!" You see, she's planning on going into rehabilitation physical therapy.

As you can see I've been exploring the realm of not so focussedness and clearly cannot take credit for these last two, seeing as that is me in them. It was fun, in a strange way, to hand the camera over to someone else for a moment and get a few pictures of my own self. Kerissa, the dark haired cutie above, took these. I think they turned out quite nice considering she had no idea what she was doing.
