In case you’re wondering how I choose which photo to edit,
I kind of do this dorky, close my eyes, point the mouse, hope I hit an actual photo thing.

In my “edit me!” folder (yes, that does exist, ha ha!), everything is a RAW file.
Literally, I have noooooooooooo clue what photo I’m choosing.

Because I was…at first.
Yep, I just admitted that.

July 4th.
The one clear day a year when every photographer gets out their tripod and treks to the nearest show to get some fun shots.
And most of them probably had to wipe the dust off that tripod, that’s how little some of us use one :]

This was the first year that we went out with our next door neighbors/bfs and their (then) 1.5 year old.
I don’t care how corny it is for me to say this…
but if you truly want to appreciate something, watch it through the eyes of a child.
There is so much unfiltered wonder and excitement!
I loved seeing and hearing Mr. B’s little gasps!

As adults, we may have seen our fair share of fireworks, it’s nothing new,
but to them, it’s BRAND spankin’ new.
And I can’t wait to share that kind of stuff with my own kids.

Hello all!
I, like many other photographers, suffer from a “condition”.
We are so focused on your memories that some of us will leave personal photos
set to the side, untouched, unedited…unloved?

(If you are every bit of a Doctor Who nerd like me then hopefully you read that in the voice of “The Moment”)

I’ve decided to take on my first 365 project,
editing a personal photo every day for one year.
Telling you my stories, both simple and complicated.

 This was taken about a year ago when Mr. Lucky Shot and I spent Christmasvacation
in his hometown of Leavenworth, WA.
Leavenworth, the Bavarian village, NOT the prison,  ha ha!

Was definitely a shock to deal with snow after leaving 70 degrees in Phoenix.

Thanks to my wonderful, handsome, talented…(on and on I could go!) husband
for snapping this quick shot.

Welcome to ME!

What do you get when you put light sabers, fur babies, and a fun family together?
Just about one of the most entertaining sessions I’ve seen!
Seriously, I can’t count how many times I chuckled under my breath,
or even just guffawed out loud!

Jess and Dan came to me because his side of the family was getting together for the holidays
for the first time in a while.
(btw, perfect opportunity to get some shots done).
They were troopers and wanted to do them first thing in the morning, brrrr.
So got some hot caramel apple cider on the way!

What follows here are the antics of the Pagoulatos family…
