summer's bounty

i am so thrilled that we finally have a freezer and a vaccuum sealer! i spent yesterday washing, cutting, freezing and sealing up ripe fruits for the winter. it makes so much more sense (ecologically and economically) to get things in season and save them, rather than pay higher prices for fruit to be shipped halfway across the world during the winter here. so far i've done strawberries, blueberries, peaches and raspberries. next in line are 8 mangos. they're not quite ripe enough yet.

my first photoshoot!

i think everyone knows how much i love to capture just about every moment of my own family's lives with my camera, but i had the chance today to take portraits for a friend. it was a challenge, but so much fun and i hope she and her family and happy with the results. the full photoshoot can be seen on flickr

isn't she beautiful?

and her children are simply gorgeous!
