Phlox and Foals

I love spring. Flowers are blooming and babies are being born. (:

Today I cut some branches back to give my phlox more sun, then I ventured over to the farm where my boyfriend works to check out their foals.

They're cute little buggers. (:

Building Photography

My dad owns a construction company and recently built some additions for a homeowner. He asked if I would take some pictures of the final product for his company's portfolio.

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day and perfect for taking pictures, so I took all the photos of the additions and the property itself.

I don't normally like to take pictures at high-noon, but for taking pictures of buildings with trees, landscaping, and other buildings around them, it was perfect. The sun didn't cast any problem shadows that I would have been frustrated with if I had shot earlier or later in the day.

These are all SOOC. I might add some contrast to them and boost the blacks, but I like the colors for the most part.

This is just because the artist photographer in me just couldn't resist that color.

I just can't get over how gorgeous today was! The weather was perfect, the sky was so blue, and the grass was so vibrant!

Romans 12:12

This is my favorite verse and I am constantly coming back to it. It's such a great reminder as to how we're supposed to respond to situations. It always helps me to take a step and think clearly about whatever is going on.

I designed this in my graphic design class for a quote design project, and it ended up getting hung in our Winter art show.

I hope other people saw it and took a step back and thought about the words.

I don't know if you would consider this a promise from God or not, but I always kind of feel like it is. I feel like it's a promise that if we are praising God through the good times, working with Him in the bad, and praying about everything, He'll take care of us.
