It's Retro

You may or may not already know.... if you click on any of the pictures on this blog you can see them enlarged!



It's so hot in Korea these days, we were melting within 5 minutes of getting to the park. When we got home we stripped down to cool off and cranked up the a/c. I decided to try pigtails to get the hair off Adalie's neck in the attempt to get cool quick! 

Not only did it cool her down but also looked super cute.
 So of course I had to take a few pictures of her cuteness :)

Thank you to Lauren for taking the pictures for us :)

CrAZY About Lightroom

I just recently downloaded a new photo editing program called Lightroom 3 and it's FANTASTIC! My new hobby is coming up with "user presets". I just created one I really love! It's a mix between a sepia and color photo.... to me it looks vintage modern with a little bit of rustic thrown in.

What do you think? You like it?

{only one of these children are mine, 
although I would gladly claim the other two cuties}

The Lens Arrived!

My new lens came today! It arrived 6 days after I ordered it, that's crazy fast! I'm already in love with 50mm 1.4 and only used it for a few shots of Adalie at the park. I still have a lot more to learn about the benefits of this lens but I can tell it's going to really sharpen my images. YAY!

In other news, Adalie has enough hair for ponytails now :)
It only took 2 years!

How cute is her "fountain"?
 LOVE it!

Random Wednesday w/Pictures

1. Laundry has taken over my life! One of Adalie's GREEN CRAYONS snuck it's way into my WHITES, errrr! I have soaked, washed, scrubbed, rewashed so many times this weekend.... and I have mostly gotten rid of the green. BUT of course my favorite North Face fleece is RUINED, 200 bucks goodbye :(




2. Adalie is obsessed with shoes. A true women :) She wants them on as soon as she wakes and wears then all day and changes them almost hourly. Daddy is in trouble, better start a shoe shopping fund now.

Here she is in Mrs. Jess's rain boots:

3. I thought I would share with you our view of Korea. It happened to finally be nice yesterday and the haze was at a minimum so I could actually see the city. Usually the visibility is terrible with the smog and I can't see this much of the city.

The View from our Bedroom:

View from the back of the apartment:

4.  I didn't get to take many picture this 4th of July the weather was raining off and on and I was worried about ruining the camera. Here is one of the few from our festivities.

5. I bought a new lens! My 50mm 1.4 is on the way to Korea. Of course it will take 3 weeks to get here :( I cannot wait to get it and start playing. I have a few friends who are willing to do some shoots with me for practice. So fun!

The Story

The Story of a girl 
bored in her crib..... 

(She went to bed 30 minutes before these pictures were taken 100% clothed, I swear.)

It's way more fun to take my clothes off and jump in my bed while yelling "I naked, I naked". 

Who needs naps?

Apparently not Adalie today.
