Erin - August 2017 http://www.staceymarkelphotography.com/blog/2017/9/erin---august-2017 Erin - August 2017

I had so much fun photographing this young lady.  She was full of energy and up for anything I wanted her to do.  I photographed her brother for his senior portraits.  Being photogenic definitely runs in the family.

Busy week, as usual.  The start of the school year (9th and 5th grade).  I was away on business and had to use a few photos from the same day since I didn't take my camera on my trip.  Ended the week with our first volleyball game of the season (with a win)!

I have always wanted to photograph a football player and was happy to get my chance on this particular evening at Howard High School (and an added bonus was that he is a lacrosse player too).

I'm continuing my iPhone 365 for the third year in a row.  I absolutely love looking back at all the pictures I've taken and wanted to continue again this year.  August was another busy month with painting and updating my son's room, tennis camp, pool fun, birthday celebrations for both kids (14 & 10), an overnight Hershey Park visit and the start of volleyball season.

{30 Minutes in the Life} ~ August 2017 http://www.staceymarkelphotography.com/blog/2017/8/-30-minutes-in-the-life-august-2017

{Blog Circle} ~ August 2017

"Thirty Minutes in the Life" will feature ladies from around the world as we capture 30 minutes in our lives as mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends {and photographers}.  This is a blog circle so please be sure to visit the next photographer in the circle. 

Earlier in August we visited Hershey Park.   We go there every few years but we have never done the "Make Your Own Candy Bar".  First, you choose your base chocolate (white, dark or milk) and the ingredients to include inside (chocolate chunks, crispies, butterscotch pieces, etc).  Then you watch your candy bar being made.  You also get to make your own packaging too.  It was so much fun!  And yummy.....

Next up in the blog circle is Julia Forsman .  I cannot wait to see what she did with her 30 minutes.

This was my first session for the Class of 2018 and it is getting off to a GREAT start.  Kayla was so fun to photograph.  We had a beautiful evening and location and we just ran that property.  I have so many favorites from this session!  It was so great to meet Kayla because I went to school with her Mom.  I cannot believe we are old enough to have 17 year olds.  It's just impossible!

It was so nice to spend some time with this family at their beautiful home.  They are celebrating the graduation of their two daughters, one from high school and one from college.

Mimi http://www.staceymarkelphotography.com/blog/2017/8/mimi-the-lovey Mimi 

Mimi is a stuffed bunny that my daughter has had since she was a newborn.  Mimi is her favorite toy and is with her everywhere she goes. She’s played dress up, soothed tears and has always been there with Natalie.  When Natalie was two, I picked her up from daycare one evening and her sitter, said, “Who is Mimi?  She keeps asking for Mimi”.  I did not know what she was talking about.  When I brought Natalie home, she ran to the bunny and said, “Mimi”… and the name stuck.  

On the evening before we were to leave for vacation, Natalie told us she had lost her Mimi, which is not an uncommon occurrence in the Markel household.  When we first realized she was lost, we thought, “she’ll turn up, she always does” since Mimi tends to get lost in the house quite often.  Well, the morning we were to leave for our vacation, we finally retraced our steps and realized what had happened.  Mimi had accidentally gotten thrown out in the trash at our favorite restaurant.  We called the restaurant and they could not find her.  

Natalie immediately started crying.  We knew we would never get her back.  The bunny that had been everywhere with Natalie and was linked to so many memories.  We kept thinking that maybe we were wrong and she didn’t go out in the trash.  But then we tore the house apart and didn't find her.  Needless to say, it was a somber drive to the ocean.

On our way to the beach, we stopped by Babies R Us, which is where we were pretty sure Mimi came from (mind you, 10 years ago!).  We obviously didn’t find anything like Mimi but we did find another bunny to get for her.  It was something to ease the heartache.

StaceyMarkelPhotography 4109051993 One morning while we were all sitting on our balcony, my husband was online and found an exact picture of Mimi, he enhanced the image and found out that the manufacturer was Kids Preferred.  I started looking on eBay and found her but was immediately deflated when I realized it was an old posting from a few years ago.  My son was also searching and looked up Kids Preferred 2007 since we knew she was made around that time.  A website came up!!  We clicked the link and there she was….FOR SALE!!!  We could not believe it.  Never in a million years did I think we would ever find a replacement.  Dalton immediately handed me the phone, I purchased it and hoped for the best. 

When we arrived back from vacation the bunny was waiting in our mailbox!  She’s not exactly the same since she’s all stuffed properly and has no holes and is now back to her natural shade of pink but we joke and say that Mimi took her own vacation at the spa and got a makeover. 

In case you need your own lovey replacement, here's where we purchased Mimi 2.0 -----> Le Chat Noir Boutique

I'm continuing my iPhone 365 for the third year in a row.  I absolutely love looking back at all the pictures I've taken and wanted to continue again this year.  July was a very busy month! Independence Day celebrations, pool fun and we ended the month with a trip to Bethany Beach.

{30 Minutes in the Life} ~ July 2017 http://www.staceymarkelphotography.com/blog/2017/7/-30-minutes-in-the-life-july-2017

{Blog Circle} ~ July 2017

"Thirty Minutes in the Life" will feature ladies from around the world as we capture 30 minutes in our lives as mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends {and photographers}.  This is a blog circle so please be sure to visit the next photographer in the circle. 

This was a lot quicker than 30 minutes but I felt like I HAD to capture this.  My daughter woke up early morning complaining of nightmares so we let her sleep between us.  When I woke up to the beautiful light in my room and she was still sleeping, I just had to get some images. 

Next up in the blog circle is  Colleen Putman .  I cannot wait to see what she did with her 30 minutes.
