Cosmic Tree.....


Well it's progress. The tree has lights and it looks like Christmas threw up in my living room. 

More to come tomorrow.

I See You........


Tonight was the Keystone Oaks High School Winter concert.  What a beautiful night of music and song by our Jazz band, Symphonic band and Chorus.  Now, what is even more fun is the funny stuff I tend to catch with my camera.

This shot just made me chuckle.  Bryce playing peek - a - boo with Bree Stocke.  It's great to capture these kids having a great time doing something they love.

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

The Bookhamlet Wreath


A much needed night out with friends tonight at the Green Tree Borough annual wreath decorating class.  How fun it is to watch how creative everyone is starting with same base wreath.  Then the decorating starts and WOW, what amazingly beautiful wreaths we created for our homes.

I originally found a funky mosaic ribbon in popping neon Christmas colors but when I returned to get that ribbon, my eye spotted something else.....something I just "had to have".

It was hedgehog ribbon.....and if you looked close, it just might be a were-hedgehog on that ribbon!

I might just be hedging my bets on that one though :)

What happens in book club....yeah, it doesn't stay in book club...LOL

Sam's in Control.....


Another W in the books for the KO 8th grade basketball team.  I think the only schools we ever play are from Upper St. Clair....LOL   Almost a double digit  point spread and I got to see my #42 hit his first two points today.  I was also experimenting with the 50mm f1.8 because we all know how awful the lighting can be in the school gym.  Well Dan's photo of his first points is a bit blurring but I was there to see it and that is all that mattered.

Now the photo features Dan's team mate Sam who might be the smallest kid on the team but he can move and can he hit those three's!  Paul and Quinn added to the point totals with their own three's. Always exciting to watch!

Nicely done KO....I could get used to these wins every time I come to a game!

Going To The Chapel


I have said multiple times that one of the things I love about doing Senior portraits is that I get to discover new places in Pittsburgh and the surround areas.  Today was a visit to Oakland for a family portrait session at Phipps and then Senior portraits with KO Senior Daniel Rowe at Heinz Chapel.

Now I have driven by Heinz Chapel countless times but this was my first time actually getting up close and it was simply stunning.  We lucked out as there was no service at the time of our visit so I got to shoot inside for a bit and it did not disappoint!   Anyone who knows me knows that churches of all denominations are one of my favorite things to photograph and I know that I will be back again!

Rudolph Joins the Band!


Oh those clarinet players.  Always marching to the beat of their own music and trying to be incognito about it.  We know the game you are playing Liz and we love it.  Especially since you could not see a thing and still managed to make it down West Liberty Ave without losing a step!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
