PICTURES!!! NOT OURS!!!!

Yesterday we had such nice comments about our big sister Kylei's photograph's so  we decided to bombard show you some more.   This is what my Mom says about her : She is my first daughter-- born in Germany. She is a mom with four children.  Her husband has completed two tours of duty in Iraq while the kids were really small, or little babies.  She is home schooling her children. I love and admire her so much.  



She started taking pictures on a Walmart camera while Abe was gone, so she could send them to him. She found out that she was really interested in doing it and she enjoyed it. Pictures helped her work through the stress of raising the kids alone, and some of the worry and loneliness.



 This year she bought another camera and started taking more pictures. Pretty soon people started noticing how cool her pictures were and started asking her if she would take theirs.

At first she said no, because she was just doing it for fun, and I honestly don't think she thought she was good enough to do that.

In her neighborhood one of the Dad's was hurt in a really bad accident and it was a true miracle he even survived.  They have a son who is a senior this year and senior pictures are very expensive.  Kylei offered to take them at no cost.

It snowballed and she started taking more and more.

So far she has just taken them all outside, and with the weather getting colder she probably won't be able to take them much longer.  This weekend she took 3 families pictures, and two more this week.  I keep telling her to charge so she can buy a even better camera or to help with Christmas.  She is not listening to me.

She mostly says No to the money.  Every once in awhile she will charge a little. 

She says its a gift that God has given her and one she wants to share.  She is afraid if she takes money it will turn into a job and not just pleasure.  I roll my eyes at her, even though in my heart I am so proud.

I think she has a beautiful natural talent.  Of course I may be a little biased ....

(these picture are her children and of course Baby Bean)

  7. They are great pix and it helps having a lovely looking brood of children. She def has a gift and is a lovely person to take them for free. Maybe she can say no to a charge but suggest if they want to make a small donation to a new camera. That way she can put the monies in a jar and save up. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. Those are professional quality pics, Stella Rose; perhaps Kylie might listen to you, given how much street cred you bring to the table!

    Love,

  17. I do believe this is one talented and gifted photographer, your mom raised a smart and talented daughter. My own daughters homeschool-one has six kids and the other has five but some of the littles are still tiny. I love the photos. Hope you have a great evening-watch out if your mom got batteries.
    Hugs, Noreen

  20. What a great eye for portrait photography your daughter has. Maybe she could think of bartering instead of direct payment? Also some lighting equipment might be a nice Christmas present so she could do some indoor work in the winter.
