Fun with Silly Putty July 31, 2009

Filed under: My life — mastershand @ 6:49 am

We have had some strange weather lately…cold, then the sun comes out and it gets hot, then black clouds roll over and the rain comes out of no where, etc., etc. So we decided to find something fun to do indoors…and what messier thing to do other than make some silly putty. It’s quick and easy…BUT it’s messy!

If you are looking for something gooey to do the recipe is as follows…start with 1 cup of glue – add a couple TBS of acrylic paint and mix together – gradually mix in 1/2 cup of liquid startch – mix with your hands until the putty is formed.



Remember I mentioned he is my comedian…




Mr. “T”: West Fargo Senior July 30, 2009

Filed under: Senior PICS — mastershand @ 5:10 am

Here is a sneak peek from a recent senior session. We had fun goofing around and making the best of it for a guy. Typically, a senior girl could keep going with their session for a long time…clothing changes, shoe changes, trying pose after pose, and on it goes. Guys on the other hand usually keep it short and simple – they usually have their session done because of MOM. Thanks for the fun session “T”! Hope it was pretty painless for you!






A Date with my 5 year old July 29, 2009

Filed under: Children PICS — mastershand @ 6:15 am

This is one of the first smiles I get to wake up to each day! He’s my snuggler, my charmer, my comedian, and yes…even my little stinker. When you are one of three and especially the middle child it’s pretty great when you can get some one-on-one time with mom or dad. But, this one cost me! His bribery…obviously a bag of candy to begin with…and then a trip to the D.Q. for a brownie batter blizzard. His big sister and I had a girls night out a few nights prior and she happened to spill the beans about her D.Q. trip…so we had to keep things somewhat equal. But, I think mom got the better end of the deal…some great shots of her 5 year old. He’s claims he’s not my little man any more, now that he’ll soon be heading to kindergarten he thinks he’s my “BIG” little man.






Little Miss “A” July 16, 2009

The one thing I love about my job is watching kids grow and change over the years. I have had the opportunity to photograph Little Miss “A” since she was one and she has definitely changed over the years. Even the fact of her letting me take her pictures has changed! Last summer she gave poor mom a run for her money and the fact that we were bombarded with mosquitoes didn’t help either. This time she jabbered away and even had her own poses and spots to try out. Thanks for the fun session!

I shared a few from Miss “T”‘s session in the prairie grass, but wanted to post just a few more from her urban session. I love the bright colors in her shirt and the torn jeans!

A super hero and his sidekick

This is the age where it starts to get a bit easier taking their pictures again. Can you guess how old he is?? They don’t run from you and make you work up a sweat and they want to tell you all about their interests and what they like to do. Spiderman was this little guy’s buddy and he stuck with us through the whole session. He was even on a band aid on his knee. I am thinking they probably both needed a bath when the night was over. Thanks for the fun session “B”.
