A Little Bird Told Me Link Party #101

Welcome to...
The Life of Jennifer Dawn

It is wonderful to have you here!  Baby Caleb wants so badly to say, "Hi!" He is sitting in my lap trying to hit the touch screen and keyboard as I put this together. So...a big welcome from Baby Caleb and me! I typed Baby Caleb, but he is 16 months and walking now. I think that may make him a toddler, but my tender, mommy heart is having a hard time with him getting so BIG. Perhaps I can get away with calling him a baby until he's 18 months. Anyways, let's get this party started with four fabulous posts that were linked up last week...
Marissa from Life is Fantasmic shared her Grandmother's Apple Crisp Recipe! Sentimental and sweet!
Elizabeth of I Sew, You Sew linked up her pattern and tutorial for this Retro Reproduction Dress!
Jamie of Anderson & Grant linked up her Recent Vintage Finds!
&
PartyKitchen shared her recipe for U-Pick Raspberry Preserves!

Ten Photography Tips for Photographing Kids

"Look this way, Miss Priss."
I can still hear daddy calling those words out to me as he'd click his camera.
My dad was always taking photos of us when I was growing up.
Birthdays...
ripping into presents at Christmas...
my sister and I playing in a summer rain with our pink and blue umbrellas...
sitting in our mother's lap on the blue floral couch they used to own...
riding a bike for the first time...
hunting eggs at Easter...
running beneath the Georgia pines...
visiting grandparents...
giggles between sisters...
smiles and joy!

He captured it all! Mama would take some pictures too. Although she left most of the family picture-taking up to my dad, she had once been a writer and photographer for a newspaper.

I guess it was inevitable that I'd grow to love taking photos too...
That I'd relish opportunities to take and share photos that tell the story of my little family and our lives.

Do you also enjoy capturing those precious memories on camera?
I've shared a few tips of trade I've picked up along the way on the Knoxville Moms Blog...
