Focus on the Good Things


Restrictions are lifting in my state of Missouri with businesses being allowed to open in the entire area starting Monday. In my immediate area, on “this side of the river,” they already opened, but on the St. Louis side where cases of COVID-19 are higher the restrictions are not being lifted until Monday the 18th. I am glad to be able to go back to my hairdresser who works out of her home, to the clothing store to get outfits with my girls for our family portrait session next month and maybe go out to eat with my family. I fear the virus will spread once people start moving about again, but we can’t stay at home forever, can we? Honestly, people aren’t staying home anyway. Have you seen Walmart, Lowes, and Home Depot lately? My husband works at Lowe’s and he’s been calling it the “wild, wild west” during this quarantine!

A Rock


I dropped and busted my flash this weekend when I was taking some pictures of a family on their front porch to document this crazy time for them (while social distancing of course.) Luckily, my flash was a cheap one that I have had for several years. I came home and ordered a Godox V1 which is due to arrive this Thursday. I am excited to try it out.

I used my old flash on these last couple of macro shot posts including this one.
