With me, my entire childhood, has been Visalia’s own local donut shop, Scotty’s Donuts.  This location is accessible through drive thru on Walnut, near Mooney, or you can pop by the window and pick out your snack/meal.  In addition, they have the best, crunchiest ice in town!  You never go wrong with Scotty’s, so the next time you are craving something sweet and want a steaming cup of coffee, or have a birthday coming up, stop by the donut shop!

Lights, ACTION!

A few months ago my good friend stopped by my house, and, for the first time I set up my mom’s old lighting system.  I wasn’t sure what I was doing, but we had some fun.ImageAt first, we were having difficulty thinking of ideas, but then I remember I had an entire dresser drawer filled of magazines. So we moved my desk in front of my window curtains, and spread the magazines over the desk.  ImageSuddenly I remembered that my friend had a desk fan in her room, so I grabbed it and set in on a night stand facing Jess so her hair would blow around. I wanted her to look happy so I had her smile and flip fast through the book.ImageAfter, she sat atop the desk and did a cute pose.ImageWe couldn’t walk away from this shoot without a close up of her beautiful face!ImageShe laid on the desk, at first it was uncomfortable, but then we found a position that was more relaxing. I love the wood of my desk!ImageIn this shot she was looking off to the side.ImageThis shot she looks carefree!( :

For my first time using the lights, I think I was pretty successful, and we had a lot of fun, too!
