sara & jake / mountain flowers & a good book/ exploring the water / caught / rowing expert

These were from a family vacation to Massachusetts last year. The lake, the mountain air, oh how I miss it! Also, if you didn’t notice, I gave myself yet another name & logo. Trying a few out before I stick to one! (I might just be addicted to making logos…..)

Photography: Outdoor Adventures

Last weekend was GORGEOUS outside.. so i decided to grab my camera, a lens and I went for a nice little walk.

Well… Practically 5 miles later I’m trudging through the front door, out of breath, camera dangling precariously from my neck, shoes filled with gravel. I was done with walks, and “nice” days! ha! Just kidding of course. Please sun, come back and stick around longer this time? Oil costs too much and I just want my house warm!

Anyway.. here are some of my shots from the walk:

Photography: Easter Chicks + Dirt Pie

This year for Easter, I had to pleasure of going to Ian’s Uncle’s farm. They even arranged an egg hunt for the little ones. He has raises horses, and they also have chickens and guinea hens on the farm!

Here are some of my shots for the day!

I made this chocolate cream dirt pie to bring. It’s a pre-made chocolate graham cracker crust filled with two boxes of chocolate pudding, and also some chocolate chip “rocks”. Then we topped it with crushed oreos. There were supposed to be gummy worms inside, but we forgot them! I piped some green grass icing, and some pink and purple flowers, then plopped on an Easter bunny for good measure.

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter!

I have some nature photography shots to share with you next time! This blog is taking a turn down the Photography road. It’s something I’ve always been interested in, and I’m very happy to share these with you.  All photos © Dara Hopkins 2013.  :)

Photos I’ve Been Meaning to Share

Clever Name right?

These are photos that have sitting on my camera that I’ve been meaning to post either to Flickr or to this blog for various reasons. Well, now I’m posting them all at once. They range from August 2012 – March 2013. I hope to share more of my Photography up here as well.

I attempted to take a photo of myself during a make-up trial. This was too “Princess” but something about this photo kept me from deleting it.

Eagerly awaiting the RSVPs for our wedding…. This was the first batch to arrive!  Can you believe I’ve been married for 4 months?

My mother made Ian and my sister’s Fiance stockings  :)

His name is Spot. He lives in the crack in our basement floor. No joke. He’s our “pet”  :)
