Wordless Wednesday

I've been quiet this week, and it looks like it's going to be quiet around here for another couple of days, too. It was a momma and me weekend, and I think I'm still recovering from it :)
Plus, I'm leaving early in the morning for a training (and a short road trip) with a couple lovely co-workers. It will be the first time that I leave Elliott overnight and I'm kinda sad about it.

Putting her to bed tonight was hard, because I didn't want to say goodbye. I know I'm being a bit silly about it, but the truth is....I won't be there for her in the morning, and she won't understand why. It makes me sad.
But, I know that she's in good hands, and I'll only be gone for just over 24 hours.
I know we'll survive, and I'll have a nice long weekend to catch up on snuggles :)

Tonight I'm simply going to leave you with a Wordless (or, not so wordless) Wednesday. Here's a photo that I'm entering in The Paper Mama's  current challenge (at stake are bragging rights and some really awesome prizes!!). I just took this photo this weekend, and it's my new favorite. I think it not only captures a lot of Elliott's personality (and those darn dimples), but I love her big brown eyes, and it displays the direction that I'm moving towards with my photography.

I also want to mention something about my photography.
Lately, I haven't been editing any photos before I put them up on my blog.
I guess part of it is laziness, and I just don't want to take the time to edit them. The other (bigger) reason is that I want my work here to be real. I want to be a good photographer. And while I realize that I'm not there yet, I don't want editing tools to be a crutch. I want my pictures to be the very best that they can be, and I want to learn things from my camera. I'm not saying I'll never edit my pictures, but for the most part, what you see is what you get. I want my photos to be amazing and speak for themselves.....and someday they will be.
