Fertility Struggles...the next step

Warning this includes personal information and girly content. If you are troubled by this subject matter stop reading now.

After 4 months on Clomid. I am still not ovulating. The next step is seeing Dr. Slater, the Reproductive Endocrinologist. Good news is that I have heard and met many great babies that she assisted on their journey to their families. Bad news insurance will no longer covering anything...All Cash from here on out.

I am really nervous to set up my appointment with her. I am thinking that I will set it up for the first of September? She is booked out until the 1st of August....I'm nervous just thinking about it right now.

I am still having a hard time understanding timing but believe that I need to do all I can... I am trying to move forward with complete faith, "nothing wavering." Sometimes it is so hard to completely let go to trust in the plan that the Lord has for me.

While I wait I pray for understanding and guidance. I know that all things will work out in their correct time. For now I will wait.

Natural Light Week 4

I'm so sad this is the last week. Sadly I wont be able to take the next class for a while...I need to save up some money. :)

This week we studied tricks with light. Silhouette, Star bursts and and white balance tricks. It is fun to combined a few in one.

So glad I have such a great husband and son.

The original. I liked the light pole but felt the image was better cropped...Maybe not. I like it both ways.
These classes have been great personally and have help my skills as a photographer immensely. Brooke and Sarah have been great. Thank you!!!

Natural Light Week 3

I had a really hard time with this weeks assignment. I was stuck with the idea or sun burst, once I reread the assignment I felt that wasn't exactly what I was suppose to be doing. I was glad that my classmates were having some of the same concerns. Today I finally had an idea, I should just create the dramatic light.

The Original 
I know there is a little blur on his hand and the corner of the book but I picked it because I love, love, love his expression. We highly recommend the book... "Llama Llama Misses Momma" 

f/2.8       1/10sec   ISO 500 
 I cropped the picture and adjust the lighting a little using PicMonkey. 

Using PicMonkey I also turned it B & W. I think I like it better in color.  

I love that this expression made me think. I have actually been thinking a lot about being intentional.  I find this  helpful in my personal life too.  Overall I am please with the photos, minus the blue angry bird, the truth is you can see Woody, fish and a Lego Dump Truck.  :)

I should also mention that I was holding the camera.
