Back to School Portraits 2021 ~ Back to School Week

Hello friends! Today I have a post I’m really excited about. In 2018 I did a post where I took photos of the bears for their school photos. Well, I guess it’s become a tradition because this marks the fourth year! Anyway, here are the school photos 2021! I hope you enjoy, and also stay tuned until the end… Starting off…here’s your third grade class! It seems like only yesterday these guys were in Kindergarten. *sobs* My babies are growing up so quickly… Cali. Notice my new floors anyone? Cloud. …I only just realized that this is the same outfit … Continue reading Back to School Portraits 2021 ~ Back to School Week

Adventures at Grandma’s House {Summer 2021}

Hello friends! So, I’ve been at my grandma’s house for the months of July and August! I of course brought the bears and took photos of them. (You may have noticed different backgrounds in some of my posts. This is why!) Anyway, here are the photos I took of them! As you can see, we had a blast. Here was where the bears stayed while I was at Grandma’s! On top of the dresser. As you can see, I brought Stella, Petal, Sandy, Mischief, Cherry, Cloud, Sparkles, and Chip. My grandma suggested that I make a small quilt for my … Continue reading Adventures at Grandma’s House {Summer 2021}

Late Night Ponderings ~ A Mischief and Sparkles Photostory

I’ve been at my grandma’s house for the past few weeks. There will be more on that later for sure, but that’s pertinent to this post for a couple of reasons. A) I’m not at home and therefore can’t do my planned posts, B) I’ve been on a roller coaster of emotions lately, C) the backgrounds and stuff are different than normal, and D) the first ever Sparkles/Mischief photostory was completed here at my grandma’s house and it’s made me really nostalgic for that time. I’m not entirely sure why I love writing about Mischief and Sparkles so much, but … Continue reading Late Night Ponderings ~ A Mischief and Sparkles Photostory

Camp Happy Heart Talent Show

Hello friends! Welcome to our Camp Happy Heart Talent show! I’m your host, Summer! Our first participant is Sandy. Look at this lovely painting she’s created!

We’ll Be The Stars ~ Lyric Photoshoot

Hello friends! Today I have a photoshoot for you all, and I figured, why not add a song to make it more interesting? (that’s code for: I’m terrible at captioning photoshoots) Anyway, I took some photos of Stella along a starry backdrop. Then I realized…I’ve already done a Stella photoshoot during camp! Hehe, well this time I added Sparkles, so it’s not just a photoshoot of Stella. Anyway, enjoy! We are young, we are goldTrying things we didn’t knowLooking at the skySee it come aliveAll our fears became our hopesClimbed out every locked windowWe rode a lion’s maneAnd fell upon … Continue reading We’ll Be The Stars ~ Lyric Photoshoot

Band Photoshoot (the third)

Hello friends! This is always one of my favorite posts to make, and I’m really excited to share these photos with you! I really do feel like these posts get better each year. Here are our performers together! We’re running out of room to fit everyone lol. Cam’s on one of the guitars. He doesn’t really know how to play, but he has fun strumming the two chords Petal taught him. Likewise, Swirl only knows what her sister taught her. Petal on the other hand is a guitar queen! She picked it up a couple years ago at camp and … Continue reading Band Photoshoot (the third)

The Great Stuffie Bakeoff

Hello friends! Today I have a VERY fun post for you all…a bakeoff! With this post, I wanted to go back to my roots and begin with the photos. That’s how I used to to photostories, but now I’ve shifted to mainly writing first. Also, I didn’t edit these photos! Because…they look fairly good and I did NOT feel like editing 70+ photos for today. Enjoy! “Welcome to the Great Stuffie Bakeoff! I’ll be your host, Berry Blueberry!” “Meet our judges, Summer, Treasure, and Starburst! Anything you three have to say?” “I’m really excited to try all the food!” Summer … Continue reading The Great Stuffie Bakeoff

A Photoshoot by the Campfire

Hello friends! Today we have a photoshoot by the campfire. I wasn’t sure who to feature, but I figured why not feature the Campfire Crew! Enjoy this little photoshoot! (My editing skills are improving) This photoshoot was a lot different than my normal ones. I mean…the bears almost caught fire! Kidding. It’s all editing. But I did have to experiment with the lighting. I’m really happy with the way these turned out! These three girls love sitting by the campfire roasting marshmallows. It’s also fun to sing around the campfire. Or perhaps telling spooky stories is what these gals are … Continue reading A Photoshoot by the Campfire
