I was pretty excited for our "time" challenge this week and the chance to have a little fun with the seconds hand using a slow shutter speed and layers in PhotoShop...

Today we found ourselves enjoying a beautiful Sunday at one of our favorite places - Village Winery in Waterford, Va. The warm and sunny day quickly turned to ominous clouds and a nip in the air...which makes for very interesting skies if your photo challenge for the week is "from below."

My baby girl is three months today! Every month we are doing a little mini session to document how much she's grown - but it documents how I'm growing as well. I only had a point and shoot when my first daughter was born, and then I got the Rebel when she was about a month but had no idea how to use it! These are my favorites from today and were taken with my 5d2 and 50mm 1.4. Also, I should mention these are all SOCC. Isn't the light in her room amazing?

We had friends in town and decided to head to the National Zoo in Washington, DC. I am always excited for any chance to use my Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro! I usually spend lots of time at the Invertebrates house but on this trip I wanted to try something a smidge different.

Our challenge this week was "loud." With 9/11 on Tuesday, I thought it was only fitting that I reshare some photos I took of the Freedom Tower in [loud] New York City in May 2012.

I have a 3 year old (yesterday! Happy birthday, Baby!) and a 2 1/2 month old, so silence is not something I'm familiar with as of late; but, my days are filled with moments of peace. I am exclusively nursing our baby, and those times, no matter where we are or what is going on around us, are blissful moments of peace and relative quiet as we connect with each other and disengage the rest of the world.

I totally forgot to share a few snap shots of our Labor Day at Barrel Oak Winery. We live in "Wine Country" (Loudoun County, VA) but the area is surrounded by fabulous wineries for hours. On Labor Day we made the trek out to Delaplane with some friends to check Barrel Oak out. According to the Washington Post it is the most family-friendly winery in the country...and it totally lived up to its reputation! Tons of families, pets, and an awesome laid-back vibe with great wine and a sangria shack!
