Slice of Life Sunday: New Year's Eve on the beach

I traveled to California for the first time for New Year's Eve with my boyfriend's family. Because it was my first time there, Jared's uncle was nice enough to loan us his car for the day for a drive along the coast in Malibu. It was GORGEOUS! We spent the day soaking in the sun (and freezing water temperatures) and the night ringing in the new year on the dance floor. It was a spectacular vacation and a wonderful way to end 2010.

Happy New Year!

Mason's 12-month portraits in Hermann Park

This baby is a mover and a shaker! Last January I shot Mason's three-month baby portraits. And he instantly stole the hearts of all my female blog readers. For his 12-month photos, I met him in Hermann Park and he wasn't too crazy about staying still for my camera this time around! He was much happier running around, picking up sticks, and ruling the park with his sticks.

I mean, look how proud he is!

2010 Favorites

2010 was a wonderful year for me personally and professionally. I was so humbled and honored by everyone who asked me to photograph their family, their love, and their accomplishments. A few of the sessions included below have yet to be blogged, but I'm working on it! I also need to catch up on posting all of my design and invitation work from last year. But that's another day!

Here are several of my favorite shots taken in 2010 - a mix of personal and professional. Thank you to all of my incredible subjects!

January Desktop Calendar Wallpaper

As I've stated before, I make no apologies for being MIA in the blogosphere. Will I add "blog consistently" to my 2011 goals? Most likely. Will I struggle to maintain the goal? Most likely. But I'll definitely aim to post the desktop calendar wallpapers closer to the beginning of the month!

This month's photo is a close-up of a super teeny tiny miniscule selection of bottles from my bottle collection. My grandmother got me interested and most of the bottles I own were taken from her basement. She and my grandfather used to dig bottles together as a hobby along riverbanks. I think they are so beautiful and have them displayed all over my apartment.

About Kelly Tarleton

I've always been a creative person, and the one who always had a camera on-hand at a moment's notice for any occasion. Photography and graphic design dominated my life in school and I loved every minute of it. I miss that constant creative outlet and want to share more of it with my family and friends through this blog.See more of my work at my website:
