WW: Sneak Peek of Kayleigh at Pine Island

Today I actually have laryngitis. So apropo for Wordless Wednesday, don't ya think? Unfortunately for you my fingers still work. It's been pretty quiet around here for the last few days and I think my hubs is secretly enjoying it. Boy, the flu has got me good. I don't think I've been this sick in at least a decade. Just when I think I'm in the clear my fever returns. I know it's my body's way of healing, so I'm trying to be patient. I think I'm beginning to like NyQuil a little too much... I've also tried gargling with warm salt water, lemon juice and honey and steamy showers. Any other good remedies? The good news is hubs is on the mend and is pretty domesticated. I may milk it just a little. Shh...

Saturday I was actually already sick and achy (and feverish unbeknownst to me) but I had previously rescheduled this shoot once before and with temps in the 70s I didn't want to waste the beautiful day, so I sucked it up. Hubs was a pretty helpful assistant and this little girl never whined once. She was up for just about anything- even climbing over rocks. Isn't she a doll?

We had a couple different locations tentatively planned that flopped for one reason or another, so I decided to try Pine Island last minute. The sun reflecting off the water certainly created some new challenges but I love the warmth that it added.

We worked our way to this dock at the absolute perfect time. The lighting couldn't have been better and I knew I had to hurry. If you follow me on instagram or facebook, you may have seen the less than flattering shot of me balancing to capture this shot below.

I'd say it was worth it, wouldn't you?

Since my PRK Laser Surgery, this is my first portrait shoot, so I'm excited to get back into it. And I have to tell ya, I couldn't be happier with my new pair of eyes!

I hope you've enjoyed this sampling of little Kayleigh...

  13. Well, these nasty bugs seem to be making their rounds everywhere. I like to make lemon tea by bowling thin layers of lemon rind. It turns the tea really yellow and I love the flavour. My mother would always make it for me so the nostalgia alone is quite therapeutic. Also, love the photo shoot and the dress. I need to get one for my daughter's communion and have no clue where to start looking. Finally, I've always wondered about laser eye surgery so I'm glad to hear it worked so well for you. Happy Wednesday!
