enjoy your day!


awwwww that is just super duper sweet!!! =)


I love all the memories you capture of your family!


...I hear ya girl. It's VERY bittersweet seeing our babys grow up. Mine are all quite big now and I have to pinch myself sometimes...

ya know though, i actuallY LOVE the first shot more because of the perspective of it, showing how little he is compared to his surroundings. well maybe not better, but i LOVE it just as much!!!


What a great comparison, I better go back up all my photos now while my kids are still under three.

Jamie S.

Love both photos. That's pretty awesome to be able to go back and have that perspective.


How cool to have both photos to put side by side -- beautiful! I know what you mean about the bittersweet feeling of pictures like that, but I'm sure your kids absolutely love them.

Tanya Webster

wowee....i dont know what melted my heart more...the two photos or the fact that i think Yannie is the luckiest girl in the whole wide world to have such an AWESOME big brother!!! :)


There's a lot to be said for continuity. You're blessed to have lived in the same area with your family for so long. Love the comparisons--both so sweet--and heart-wrenching too!

Okay, what am I missing here? I think that first pic is really good!

I know I need the class, but it looks like a cool shot to me--lots of FRAMING going on! ha.


Hi Karen! As always, I look forward to seeing all of your beautiful photos. Not to mention the places you go in Oregon. I've been to Oregon three years ago and fell in love. I have always said I plan to retire there, hopefully. Thank you for showing us how beautiful Oregon is year-round.


I think you are just as sentimental as I am! That photo
is completely adorable.

My husband often finds me in my scrap room with a tear in
my eye (our boys are 17 and 19 now, and I admit I would
have kept them 8 and 10 forever!).


They grow up entirely too fast sometimes don't they??
Your photos freeze the best moments.



those are just beautiful. what great moments you captured!!


How time flies. The photo of Ross and Annie is so sweet. =)

I have a TON of photos of my kids that you need a magnifying glass to see them. I would surely love a redo on all my photo ops to be able to use what I've learned about getting in CLOSE.


Looking at your pictures I always think that you are so blessed with your large family, nothing matters more than family. And you are keeping the memories alive in such a beautiful way !


Oh, I agree it's bittersweet, but I'm so glad you have both of those photos.

Paola Norman

He's growing up so fast. I just love that pic with Annie. For me that is the perfect shot. Love how you captured it in time. Thanks for sharing it with us.

jennifer Compton

that makes me weepy.


the stories told in the pictures are beautiful. as beautiful as watching them grew up.

You are an amazing woman, mother, wife, artist, photographer and much more. I love your blog which I've told you a zillion times. You are so down to earth without any pretensions. Your writing style is very natural and along with your photos taken of your family, you share bits and pieces of your life and inspire your readers to feel hopeful and aspire to make time for more quality time with the people we love. I just love the photo of Ross and Annie. I agree with the others that you have an eye for freezing such meaningful moments in time forever. I am a beginner so forgive me if I am not saying this right, but I always notice that your photos are so much more than people, places and things frozen in time. You capture the essence of each person and the emotional connections between the people in each photo. I hope to learn to do the same.


This speaks volumes!!! I LOVE rear view loving!!
