The years from preschool to high school are gone in a snap, they just flash by!

It seems like just yesterday I was taking this graduating senior's toddler pictures,

growing up,

Last fall, when we were taking these senior pictures of members of my family, we had discussions of whether they wanted to take more photos in the spring, closer to graduation. Never would we dream that graduation would come during summer instead. Normally I would write about the kids' plans for after graduation, but how do any of us make plans anymore? We just have to go day by day for now.

 

I have been taking pictures of the young man below before he was even born (at his mother's baby shower). He was always a perfect subject to photograph.

And later he was joined by a little sister who was just as cute!

Variety Show https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2020/5/variety-show  

You would think with all the spare time going around that I would have had time to update the blog with posts of paintings I have worked on the past few months. Each should have deserved their own in depth explanation of how the painting was composed. However I decided to throw them all into a hodgepodge to view together. All but the first painting were made from submitted photos. I have not included them except for the snapshot that I took myself of the dog.

Remember Me With Daffodils https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2020/4/remember-me-with-daffodils  

Last year, a friend passed away. It was requested not to send flowers, but donate to your favorite charity. I decided that my favorite charity was the earth and I did want to send flowers. I wanted to remember my friend with flowers every year. As luck would have it, I was finally able to track down a variety of daffodil I had long been trying to purchase. The variety name is Rip Van Winkle pictured below. The funny thing was I had to nudge my friend awake at a meeting we had attended. He gave me a sideways smile when I bumped his foot with mine to wake him from approaching slumberland. So I will remember my friend every year when spring awakes with my favorite flower.

moseley photography mosphotoart.com conway arDaffodil 1moseley photography mosphotoart.com conway ar

 

I spend a lot of time and effort on my daffodil flowerbeds. I have lost track of how many hundreds I have planted. I will admit that I have an addiction to daffodils. So much so that I have requested when it is my turn to go back to the earth, I want my ashes spread out in my daffodil bed. I spent too many hours in the darkroom printing pictures. I want to be in the sunshine in my eternity.

I enjoy daffodils the most in the field. I don't like cut flowers. I tell people cut flowers are against my religion. The only time I will cut a flower to bring indoors is if they have fallen over in the wind and rain. A flower likes to be outside enjoying nature just as much as any living being. Who am I to deny them their time in the sun?

Pawsing for Christmas https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2019/12/pawsing-for-christmas These three pup brothers belong to a friend. One of them is naughtier than the others, but you wouldn't be able to tell which one by looking at this image. I'll give you a hint........

 

 

moseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway ar

 

.....it is this one.

 

moseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway ar

Sure, he looks all sweet and innocent. But he is a ramblin' guy. His adventure outside of the gate for a week contributed to me allowing the group to have their Christmas pictures made. See, I know this trio well. I knew they were going to be a tough group to pin down. But as it turns out, the troublemaker was the easy one.

 

The next guy is used to the camera and is a minor celebrity, but out of about 20 images I made of just him alone, just one was the money shot. It only takes one though, and I mean, please!

 

moseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway ar

 

And the next guy was just going to go wherever there are tater tots. Which, tip to the wise, they are under the snow!

 

 

moseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway ar

 

I'm not here to tell tales (or tails). We won't mention some things that happened that might earn them coal instead of doggie biscuits. But all in all, I will go ahead and say they were good boys, for the most part. And I think they enjoyed themselves too. I know their Mom and her friend the photographer had a few good laughs.

Success of the Dress https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2019/11/success-of-the-dress Once again it is time for the newest member of our family to have pictures made in THE dress. In the image below, the first girl in each row is the mother of the girl to their right. I have taken all of their photos except for the very first one at the top left. I was about 10 years old when she had her picture taken. The dress, made by a very special family friend, has held up well over the years.

I want to remember a friend by remembering his friend. My friend just recently passed away and his best friend in the painting below passed away years earlier. This was one of the first digital paintings I created of a pet. I was very happy that my friend was pleased with my creation. I am very sure that they are at this moment enjoying each others company once again.

It's the end of an era! I took senior photos of the last siblings in their family to graduate high school. I have taken all in the family and each and every one was a pleasure.

And in the case of these twins, I took them at a young age as well. It is so fun to watch kids grow up before your eyes.

They are super students, both graduating with honor. And now they will be moving on to higher learning. She has plans in nursing, he has an interest in biology.

Usually, when I create a baby sleeping composite, I build with several different images. I piece together different layers to create the larger image. This time I actually built a nest. It started out with me first knitting a dress to match the scene that I had in my mind. And then the baby had to be born. Once I had the picture of the baby, I set off to build her nest. Luckily I had a warmer day, but it was a bit more cloudy and gloomy than I had hoped. A couple of times I got ready to put it all in the wheelbarrow and move it out of a rain shower, but after 3 hours and moving the nest to three different locations, I finally got the shot I wanted. Since her parents wedding had been at a wooded location and I had taken their photos, I thought this scene went along with their outdoor lifestyle.

 

But hey, you've gotta be girlie sometimes too!

When it comes to babies, I like to take a different approach to making images. The newborn bound in linen swaddle just doesn't speak to me. They look like Harry Houdini. If you have seen one, you have seen them all. The same could be said for knit suits as well, if you don't add a little imagination. A lot of a baby's personality at this young age is in their fingers and toes. In the past I have put newborns in the cabbage patch, a nest of hay and a bed of daffodils. But they were all newborns. They were all sleeping. Their arms and legs were all still drawn up tight to their bodies. This boy posed a challenge. He was far past newborn. The fox outfit was nearly too small, and as you can see, he was not sleepy. He was all stretched out and ready to go.  While editing his session I saw the sly eye cut and came up with the idea for him to sneak into the henhouse. I took the chicken and rooster pics at a family member's pen. I had to stand on a bucket for nearly 2 hours. Seventy-five pics later I had six shots to use for the composite above. For the image below, I just added some leaves in Photoshop to give a nice fall background.

We can't leave big sis out of this process. She is an old pro. She was the newborn in my cabbage patch composite a couple of years ago. As you can see, they make quite a pair!

Petals In Sugar https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2018/8/petals-in-sugar  

You can tell from the name of this blog website that I Love flowers. I especially Love the sugar flowers pictured below because they were created by my supremely talented friend. She also made the frog, nuts and seashells at the bottom of the bouquet. We have known each other since middle school. She is a baker and decorator above all others in my book. Everything she makes tastes as scrumptious as it looks. I was so excited when she asked me to come take pictures of a project she was working on before it traveled for judging. She made a perfect score by the way. I mean, how could she not! She is a fantastic artist and seamstress as well. I wanted to share the beauty on my blog and brag on my friend I Love!

Close Encounter https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2018/7/close-encounter moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

 

I recently had a close encounter that I felt was magical. I was cleaning out a birdbath that sits in front of our porch. I was about a foot away and eye level from our hanging hummingbird feeder. I was standing, waiting for wasps that I hoped to get rid of that were bothering the birds. Suddenly, I heard a buzzing of wings right behind my ear and knew a hummingbird was at my side. She flew to the feeder and started eating just inches from me. She went around to all sides, eating and looking up at me. Then with a zoom, she flew straight in front of my face. She was so close I couldn't focus on her. I closed my eyes because I was afraid we might startle each other with quick movements. She flew so close to my nose I could feel her purring wing beats and she got caught up in the flying strands of my hair. She then flew down to the fly swat that I had at my side and looked at it almost questioningly then flew back up to me and then away. It gave me quite a smile.

 

I painted the image above a couple of years ago from a photo reference I had of a hummingbird outside the studio window visiting a host flower. It is always a delight to watch these fascinating birds.

A Regal Union https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2018/6/a-regal-union While the rest of the world was in anticipation of a little wedding over in England, our family celebrated the marriage of our own ginger groom to his royally adored bride this past March. Despite all of the rain and cold temperatures of this spring season, the day was beautiful and could not have been more perfect. I was able to steal the bride away to get a couple of snapshots of my own to be able to make a painting to commemorate the day.

2018 Senior on the Right Track https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2018/5/2018-senior-on-the-right-track  

One day they are waiting for Santa

moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

and the next day they are graduating from High School!

or so it seems!

 

moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

 

This graduating senior is family of family, so I consider that family to me.  When we started talking about senior pictures, everyone knew we had to include her late Granddad somehow. He had worked for the railroad and she wanted to have her picture made with the caboose downtown. Using old snapshots and wedding photos, I put together an image to make a sort of logo. I then tried to make it look as if was graffiti spray painted on the side of the caboose.

I also used a photo that I had taken on a photowalk in 2011 to put train tracks behind her in a composite.

 

moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

 

I used images from the same photowalk shoot to add different looks behind her instead of just gray photo paper.

Think Big https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2018/4/think-big Recently I got to work on a personal project. We needed new artwork to replace a water damaged print that sat on our mantel. The ceiling had leaked because of the chimney. Our fantastic neighbor helped us get it all of it repaired, so we got to put up new pictures. I created a digital painting using a composite of pictures I had taken of the tree and pasture just outside the studio. I had it printed 24x36. I then decided the painting needed artwork bookends, so I painted another tree from the pasture as a 15x30 and a leaf that I had photographed to use in another project as a 16x20.

If you are like me, you were as busy as a bee over the holiday season. And now it is so cold outside it makes me long for warmer days. I decided to post this image of a little ray of sunshine that was working in the okra patch. It was homing in on our home garden so I decided to title it Okrahoma. Forgive me, I have been indoors too long and have a bit of cabin fever. Spring can't come soon enough for me.

If you read the blog post in August, you recognize The Twisted Purl's shop dog Loki. I took a picture of him and was able to create a painting just in time for the annual yarn crawl event last month. Loki is such a sweet mascot. It was so much fun creating an image of him.

I must admit though, first place in my heart belongs to Miss Kitty who will always be my favorite store minder. She kept a watchful eye at the gone but not forgotten That Bookstore at Mountebanq Place.

 

mosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway ar

 

Miss Kitty was a great reader of books and customers. She knew just the right amount of attention each visitor needed. She hosted a lot of great authors including knitting superstar Debbie Macomber. It was Miss Kitty's store partner, That Bookstore Lady, who taught me how to knit.

 

mosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway ar

I will be forever grateful to Miss Kitty, That Bookstore Lady and That Bookstore Hubby for their kindness, friendship and love. They have enriched my life in so many ways!

 

So be sure to visit your favorite small business and make new friends to bring joy to your life!

If you have been to the studio you have been past this house. Four generations of my relatives have lived in it. When it was time to take bridal photos for my second cousin's upcoming wedding she mentioned that she would like to have her picture made with the corner road sign. The problem is that this corner is one of the busiest in Conway. It wasn't going to happen. But I liked the idea and decided to create a painting instead of a photo so we wouldn't be squished under a speeding vehicle.

Out of the studio we took a lot of the session photos at the house on the corner. The stately oak made a grand photo to add to the guest book table.

The bride's mother, my cousin, had her clematis in full bloom at the time and it made a great background.

I feel like I have come full circle with weddings. Her parents' wedding was the first wedding I ever shot and her wedding will most likely be my last. It was a beautiful day for a wedding at Petit Jean with a gorgeous happy bride and a handsome groom enjoying nature and family and friends.

 

Best Wishes and Love to The Happy Couple!

People will be looking up at the sky today to view the eclipse. I had an opportunity for a cute composite idea fall from the sky two weeks ago. Before the start of school, I took pics of two brothers. Sometimes I take snap shots of kids just being funny but not particularly something parents would want an 8x10 of for the wall. When I was editing the sitting, an idea started to come to me for the composite above. Below are the images I used to make the composite.

 

moseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway ar

 

I showed the boys the work in progress and they approved with belly laughs. They asked me if I was going to make any others and I admitted that I had a few more ideas flying around my brain. I thought of them sitting on the runway promoting their wagon rides with a sign and airplanes in the background. I decided I should go out to the Conway Municipal Airport at Cantrell Field. Nearly every day I made plans it was either foggy or rainy and time was running out to get this blog post up when I wanted. I started thinking of ways to improvise. I looked in my Hallmark Dreambook of Christmas ornaments and found the Travel Air Model R "Mystery Ship" plane ornament , 21st in the series that I would later purchase at Cherry's Hallmark at Elsinger. I figured an empty tin can might make a believable airplane hangar. Fortunately there was a bright sunny day at the end of the week (although it was hot and humid) and I made my way out to the airport. The friendly staff gave me permission to go out and shoot the images I wanted. They graciously told me to come back any time I needed. It was a beautiful facility with a welcoming atmosphere and paintings provided by Art on the Green. It's a nice place to spend the day watching planes take off and land. It's like a cool oasis in a shimmering field of soybeans.

Following, I thought I would offer up for viewing pictures I took in the same Lollie Bottoms area the airport is located. I took these photos with film for a project back in 1986.

On my drive this week I looked for some of the same landmarks but didn't come upon any I noticed but the ridge and levees. I didn't expect to see the dog since he would probably be over 200 years old in a dog's age.

 After the airport, I did use the trip to the west side of town to visit my favorite yarn shop, The Twisted Purl, where therapy dog in training, Loki, co-owns the store. If you are out on Prince Street, drop by to learn how to knit, crochet, spin and weave. The store is filled with a large variety of yarn, some locally produced. Loki will be very happy to greet you with a smile!

So I have just got to thank the two wagon flying thrill seekers for sending me on a small adventure of my own to make a fun composite!

Congratulations Conway High Senior 2017 https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2017/7/congratulations-conway-high-senior-2017 moseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway armoseley photography mosphotoart.com conway ar

 

I came up with the idea for this composite after this senior had graduated. I was taking images for another project I was working on and happened to be in the area of the high school. It was a beautiful day and I had just the right lighting and no cars in the parking lot or the street. The sky was just perfect. When I looked at the image on the back of the camera I was surprised that the building looked rather majestic. I knew just the images to use of a senior I took this year to work with and got what I think is a striking result. What makes this photo shoot even more special is that I took this senior's parents pictures when they were graduating. Have I really been doing this that long?! It's even the same cap and gown I have had all of these years. Choir robes hold up great! We chatted it up talking about future college plans that could lead to teaching. The most fun though was trying to catch the flag action in the studio and outside. Anyway, it was a privilege to take the graduation portraits for this family member as well!

This past weekend I was lucky to be a guest at a most beautiful wedding. The bride is family in my heart and I got to witness perfect moments that will stay in our memory forever for all who attended. I have been taking her picture since she was a tiny tot and she has been in earlier posts to this site. I had started thinking about doing this painting before I even got to see the dress. Months before, I started taking images that I might use as a backdrop. A very important part was taken years ago when I took her senior pictures with her horse. Her wedding was going to be outdoors and would include a horse and carriage, but I wanted her's to be with her on that day as well.

 

moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

 

The rest of the background I used images that I took in the yard around the studio. I took the column photo at a local church that was attended by some of her family.

 

moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

 

I used a picture her mother had sent to me of the bride trying on her dress to figure out how I would need to pose her when she came to my studio for a bridal portrait. I took several different poses, but this one fit perfect into the painting.

 

moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

 

Finally I put together all of the images to create a photosketch that I used as reference for the digital painting. I took a little liberty with her bouquet, not knowing how her fresh arrangement would look for the wedding day. I added a few daffodils from the painting even though she didn't actually carry any in hers.

 

moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

I didn't tell her that I was doing a painting partly because I wanted it to be a surprise and partly because I was unsure if I would be able to finish it on time for her wedding and that it would look like I wanted. All things worked out and it was used at the reception next to the couple's cake. 

I am so happy that the weather turned out perfect for the day of their dreams and wish the couple a wonderful journey ahead!

Happy Birthday Daffy Girl! https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2017/3/happy-birthday-daffy-girl  Hard to believe a year has passed since I made a collage of this pretty little miss as a newborn asleep in a bed of daffodils. Now she is always ready for adventure!

Let's offer a tip here though. When buying a birthday smash cake, even if you love Mickey and Minnie Mouse, don't get black icing. After a short while of eating we had to pause and clean up a bit since the comment was made that she was starting to look like a creepy clown wearing rubber gloves. It was a whole lot of fun to watch even if it did get a little too messy!

 

 

moseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.commoseley photography conway ar mosphotoart.com

 

 

She got to take a bath in the kitchen sink and then we went outside to take pictures of her really in the daffodils. She had a great time that warm day, that is until the last photo when she realized she had a ribbon in her hair. The question is was she letting her hair down or pulling her hair out? Whichever, she soon was distracted by the wind in the leaves. Happy Birthday little One!

I love making this type of composite. There is so much expression in movement. This guy takes after his big sister. I took her pictures for her first composite a few years ago when she was two years old.

I took the next images last summer, but waited to post them here until February when it is usually cold and we are dreaming of spring. But this has been a crazy weather season and it feels like spring already. Daffodils are already blooming and plants are already starting to bud. Hopefully we won't have a hard freeze that will put us back at square one.

The idea for this composite came to me as I was taking pictures in our pasture just after the hay had been cut the last time for the year. Some of the tops of the sage grass were still left, not picked up by the rake and baler. I thought that if I were a bird, I could make a great nest out of the leftovers. So I gathered up as many bunches as I could find and carried them back with me to take pictures of them. I took images over two different days and different lighting conditions. I had in mind that I might be able to use them in a composite when my friends' new baby would arrive. I went to work looking for yarn that would fit in the scene and started knitting a dress for her based on her projected weight. Lucky for me, I finished it just in time!

At the beginning of her session, I took pictures for her GrandDad's Christmas present. He coaches football and both her Dad and Uncle played on the team a few years ago so I was able to use their jerseys and helmets for props.

I also took the opportunity to use a Christmas cap and scarf that I knitted last year for a session but the baby was fussy by the time I got around to using them. This time the subject had no problem being sleepy!

I was asked to do a painting for a gift but was first only given photos of the dog and the yellow cat. I added the beach background because I was told that the owner had lived near a coastline. The gift giver however didn't know there was a third cat. After the gift was received the pet owner asked if I could add the gray cat. I didn't want to have the gray cat looking directly at the viewer. So since the gray cat and the dog had passed away, I decided to have them both looking in the same direction with the yellow cat continuing to look forward. I understand they were all the best of friends.

I was asked to paint the pet portrait above for someone to give as a gift. The owner supplied the photo to the friend but was unaware that a painting was being done, so I was unable to get a background to add to the painting that would have some meaning to the owner.

I searched through some images that I had taken to use for backgrounds. A flat rock provide what I thought would be just the right angle for the painting.

Best Witches! https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2016/10/best-witches I got excited when my friend called to have her family's picture made for Halloween. She had already designed a card to drop in some images of them dressed as witches. But she wanted them all separate. I asked if I could get a couple of shots of them together so I could come up with my own design as well. I think the outcome was pretty sweet!

mosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway ar

 

I used images that I had taken myself as the background and took a photo of our old cast iron pot for the foreground. I made a brush out of a cloud for the smoke and used a fence post for their stirring sticks. I used a path render filter in photoshop to create the wisps coming out of the pot.

 

mosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway ar

 

I put together my own collage of the rest of the photos that we had taken for her card design. The flying candy is not a photoshop trick. We actually threw candy at her!

 

mosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.com moseley photography conway ar

 

I used an image I took of a stone building in Enola for the background and a image of a flat rock covered in moss for the floor.

I put them all together for my final take on a bewitching Halloween trio!

And she is a picture of the hard work ethic!

Most of this image was made in Photoshop. Originally the logo for the company her Dad works for was printed on the onesie and the hard hats, but I substituted a logo of my own design instead for this blog post. The blueprints behind her were printed up by an architect but were designed by my Mom. I just took a photo of them and enlarged it behind her. She is not sitting on a concrete floor, but a soft spongy foam pad and being held by her Mom. The hard hats were taken during the session, but were from a different image. They are sitting on the tutu that she didn't enjoy wearing because it was so scratchy. I added the extra tulle with a brush I created in Photoshop from a scan I made.

The idea for this design came from a postcard I received from a relative a few years ago. She was visiting a family member who was studying a term in New Zealand. Having not long before taken up fly fishing, she used the opportunity to practice in one of the most beautiful countries known for the sport. When I read the post card she sent from her trip, one short line stood out that made me laugh. "Got my purse wet." Who takes their purse fishing with them? It made me envision her out standing in a stream with a large leather handbag hanging from the crook of her arm. Queen Elizabeth in hip waders. As it turns out, she later explained, it was a small tote. In New Zealand the lakes rise and fall with the ocean tides. She had just put her "purse" on a stump jutting up out of the lake and the water level gradually rose before she realized it got to her tote. Little did she know that it would spawn a catch phrase for me. Now any time I bid farewell to a friend I tell them, "Don't get your purse wet!" But for the design the opposite matters. Get your purse wet. Get out and enjoy nature. Just leave it as you found it. And don't forget to pay attention to rising water!

Some people wish they knew how to play the piano. I wish I could sew. I have many great friends who can put together fabulous designs and I wish I had their talent. Maybe that is why this past fall while I was taking pictures of the last flowers in the garden, I started seeing skirts. An upside down bloom looked a lot like a ballerina tutu. I took a couple of images with the idea in mind of using it to make a costume. The holidays came and I got busy, but kept the idea in mind. I am lucky to have a large family with lots of extensions. When I come up with a crazy idea, I can usually find someone who will help me out. The model I had in mind though looked more like winter than autumn. The original costume of fall flowers would have to wait. Daffodils were in bloom. My model was very patient and I had two great wardrobe assistants who braided the ribbons on her feet in two different styles and wrapped material over her tank top and shorts. I had in mind a winter princess waking up from an icy slumber to start her spring metamorphosis. As art imitates life, we had to use a space heater in the studio to keep our model warm. Three images were put together of her body, one for the crown, one for her upper body pose and the last for her pointed toes to look like she was hovering above the frozen pond.

The background for the composite came from a picture I took during the last snowfall early this year. The picture at the top is the original image and the one below it is the image flipped horizontally and blended together with itself. I bowed the trees out for the composite background and extended her dress to give a round feeling like being in a snow globe.

I still have the images ready for the autumn composite. But by the time I am able to get around to working on it, the seasons may have changed again!

A Spot of Good Luck https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2016/4/a-spot-of-good-luck

Sometimes good luck comes when things don't always go the way you hope. This composite came out of one of those times. The daffodils just started to bloom the week before the late March storms. First it rained for an entire week. As I was looking out the window of the studio, I was sad to see the tiny blooms that were lying flat on the ground. But then the wheels started turning and I could see that I might be able to use them in an image later on. Having put a baby in the cabbage patch, I thought I might be able to do the same with the flattened daffodils. So I went outside during a brief break in the rain and took some photos at different angles. Only a couple of days later the storm brought hail that covered the ground like snow and pretty much battered the remaining blooms that had been drenched during the week. The beautiful blooming season was cut short. However, on St. Patrick's Day, this wee little lass came to have her first studio portrait made. I took some images of just her by herself. I knew in a few days she would be coming for pictures with both Mom and Dad. I went searching through my yarn stash and started knitting a fitting dress for just this composite. I didn't have any measurements, just seeing her the day before. I made a pretty good guess if I do say so! 

 

The images below were used for the composite. The four leaf clover was real. I had grown some shamrocks to include in cards I was sending out years ago and pressed some of them to keep for myself. I scanned the best ones and used it for the little bow in her hair.

Climb Every Mountain https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2016/2/climb-every-mountain I took this sitting before Christmas. We took all sorts of family groups with Great Grandmother, Grandmother and the grandkids. When they were leaving, Grandmother wanted Great Grandmother behind the wheel of her daughter-in-law's Hummer parked out in the studio parking lot. It was a quick shot and it wasn't until later when I had the idea for the mountain come into my mind. The family had the same idea, because they asked me if I could do it and I was already two steps ahead. Moseley Photography Conway AR mosphotoart.comMoseley Photography Conway AR mosphotoart.comMoseley Photography Conway AR mosphotoart.com

 

All of the images used in the composite were taken along the hillside across the street from the studio. Most of these elements are pretty small but look larger in the perspective of the composite. I used two different images of the kids to add a little more excitement of movement.

    Moseley Photography Conway AR  mosphotoart.comMoseley Photography Conway AR mosphotoart.comMoseley Photography Conway AR mosphotoart.com

 

To take the image another step further, I decided to add a group shot in the studio with the most serious expressions I got. Pretty much Great Grandmother was the only one who fit the theme.

Sunshine On A Cloudy Day https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2016/2/sunshine-on-a-cloudy-day The Groundhog has made his prediction. Spring is to come early. The first daffodil of the year bloomed at the studio January 17, beating the previous early date of January 29. Hopefully there won't be too early of a start that will be met by late freezes pushing all the plants back to square one.

There was a different changing of the season during this sitting taken just days before Christmas. This couple was in town for the youngest son's college graduation. Their schedule was tight with holiday plans and the weather that week was rain, rain, rain. The day of the session there was sun, but by the time they made it to the studio there was only a fleeting minute left. We just didn't get the outdoor photos they had hoped for. Besides the faded sunlight, the trees were all bare of their leaves having lost the last few remaining to the hard wind and did I mention the rain?

Luckily a few weeks prior I took pictures of the leaves changing colors around the studio. I was able to take an image from inside the studio and drop in the colorful backgrounds behind them. You can hardly tell they aren't really outdoors.

Cabbage Nap https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2016/1/cabbage-nap The past holiday season was a busy one around here. Finally there is time to slow down and reflect. I thought that the first blog post of 2016 would incorporate a New Year's tradition of cabbage. 

moseley photography conway ar arkansas mosphotoart.comcabbage napmoseley photography conway ar arkansas mosphotoart.com

 

The idea for the cabbage patch didn't come until a couple of days after I took the original image of this sleepy little bunny. Luckily, this is cabbage season and I just needed to go out to the garden to take a couple of background shots. Easier said than done. I had to take over 100 shots over three different days to get the right angle and lighting of different cabbages. There are about 10 different images used to make up the bed of cabbage leaves. It does look pretty comfortable though!

She didn't even have to move to get a different background.

Speedy Christmas https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/12/speedy-christmas ​This idea started when I sent a link to a friend with post about a photographer who creates great Christmas cards with a humorous edge to them. So she pulled out her fur hats and got the kids and we put together our own idea for this funny Christmas card image.

moseley photography conway armosphotoart.commosphotoart.com

 

You might recognize the sleigh driver from the previous Wild about Harry post on this blog. I took the snow picture in my neighbors driveway across the street with the intention of using it as a background without the posted speed sign. It was perfect for this composite so I left it in. I created the sleigh by 3D model in Photoshop. The bells, lights and packages were photos that I recolored. I painted the reindeer tail from scratch in Corel Painter. All the images together make a wild ride to bring in the holiday season!

Making of a Model https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/11/making-of-a-model I am always excited to get the opportunity to photograph this beautiful and dynamic young lady. I have known her all her life and consider her family. So when I got a call she needed some photos to put in a model portfolio, I knew it would be easy to get lots of great images.

moseley photography conway armosphotoart.commosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.commosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.commosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.commosphotoart.com moseley photography conway armosphotoart.commosphotoart.com

 

I took the opportunity to use some of her poses in composites. I knew I had a couple of images that I had already taken to create what would look like a trip on an African safari. She had a suitcase that belonged to her grandmother and I had old cameras given to me by a friend. I took the grass pictures in the front yard of the studio. The sunset was snapped from the parking lot of Julie's Bakery through my windshield.

 

moseley photography conway armosphotoart.commosphotoart.com

 

The resulting composite has a warm romantic feel to it. The fun is in the experimentation. It's great to have someone who is involved in the creative experience.

 

moseley photography conway armosphotoart.commosphotoart.com

 

Her aviator glasses make me want to go out and get a picture of an airplane to use for a future composite. But for the last image I used a couple of shots from a photo walk at Hendrix village to add a background.

 

moseley photography conway armosphotoart.commosphotoart.com

 

​The soft focus and color treatment gave it a look straight out of an old movie.

I have other ideas in mind and am glad to have such a talented subject to use as my muse. Looking forward to more projects in the future!

mosphotoart.commosphotoart.commosphotoart.com

 

Whenever this fun and creative family shows up at the studio, good times and laughter follow. We only took three quick shots of the zombie walk. Little did we know what would come out of it. I had to do a little stitching to put everyone's spookiest face together.

mosphotoart.commosphotoart.commosphotoart.com

 

The pieces started coming together starting with the clouds used in the previous Harry Potter blog post. I also frequently pass a spooky looking tree off Museum Road on the Williams Farm. It has since lost many of it's eerie branches.

The real zaniness started when the goofy hats came out. We laughed until there were tears. If we had been drinking milk, it would have came out of our noses!

Late Day Play https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/7/late-day-play This snapshot just called out to be painted! I loved the expression on her face and the sassy attitude in her shoulders and arms. I envisioned her at the park just as the sun was starting to set. I took some reference pictures at a playground not far from here and put that in the background.

The painting shows the end of a great summer day!

Happy Father's Day 2015 https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/6/happy-fathers-day-2015 This holiday was a great opportunity to talk about photo restoration. The original photo was taped into the photo album. I had to scan it through the plastic page covering while it was still mounted in the photo album. I was able to correct a lot but left a little bit of the taped texture so you could see the depth of the sky underneath and not just let it look fake and painted. I might have been able to clean it up further, but decided since the vintage look is popular now, to just leave it at this progression. I think there was enough improvement from the original! I happen to know that the Dad below is a man who really knows a lot of dirt! Happy Father's Day! Dozer-redoDozer-redo Dozer-scanDozer-scan

Calling all Bees https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/6/calling-all-bees The summer flowers are starting to come into full bloom. They had been beaten down a bit by all the rain over the last month. There have been a lot of bugs that have been chewing at some of the buds. Happily the visits by honey bees are up this year. There must be an active hive somewhere close. Honey bees and bumblebees love the blue flowers of the stokesia, lavender and chaste trees. A rabbit we have come to call Itchy, since he scratches his ears a lot, may be the cause of a chewed down lily stalk. It was put into a vase and continues to bloom, so I guess we can continue to enjoy lily blooms and rabbits together. All of these photos were taken in the studio's garden this week.

Ode to Dave https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/5/ode-to-dave The melancholy is already starting. So far I have made it through the tributes without getting weepy. I have been watching David Letterman since his morning show debut during the summer of 1980. Yeah, I was a different kid. I loved talk shows and comedians. I was a fan of Dinah Shore's morning talk show in elementary school. When I found Dave's show, it was right up my street. I loved skits with Edie McClurg as Mrs. Marv Mendenhall and Rich Hall giving the farm report depicting a tornado using the props of a record player turntable and plastic toy pigs. Then school started. Summer fun was over. September there was a missile silo explosion in Damascus and I got to stay home from school that day. No worries for me. I had Dave to calm any nerves I might have had. If the end came I would be laughing. The show was cancelled but not long after he got Late Night. I picked and sold strawberries to earn enough money to buy a TV and VCR for my room so I could tape his show during school nights and watch it on the weekend. Jay Leno lost me as a fan after that big overthrow, but I was glad that Dave could start fresh at CBS. There have been ups and downs. I couldn't possibly pick out a favorite moment. It just always felt right that he was there every night except for the heart bypass surgery and the shingles. Now it is ending. I hope he comes back in some way and is on network TV where I can actually see him. Tonight I'll watch the last Late Show with David Letterman and hope the Foo Fighters play him off. Maybe he'll drive into the sunset in an Indy car. Whatever, I'm sure I'll be misty eyed. Thank you Dave for being my TV friend all of these years!

Stitch in Time https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/4/stitch-in-time This beautiful baby came for photos at the studio this weekend. She was the next in line to have her picture made in a dress handed down from her mother. The dress was sewn by a special lady whose talent we lost too soon.

Her Mom was the first to have her picture made in the dress in this submitted photo.

Tin Pup https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/4/tin-pup This little guy came to have his picture made with his owner and gave me a couple of his best poses while he was sitting waiting off the background!

Golden Boy https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/4/golden-boy I love the serene pose of this cat in the spring flowers. This is one of the first pet paintings I created on the computer. It is so much fun to paint using Corel Painter software. There are lots of different techniques you can use and not have to wash out your brushes or wait for paint to dry. And you can make as many copies as you like!

Daffodils 2015 https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/3/daffodils-2015 Spring is finally coming up with blooms. The first daffodil of 2015 opened March 8, the same day the first opened last year. Usually they bloom staggered so there are flowers for about a month. For a few years I ordered a collection of bulbs from White Flower Farm and planted over 500 bulbs. Most are still blooming every year with the exception of one flowerbed that seems to have lost a few bulbs to a digging rodent. Daffodil bulbs are supposed to taste bad to the pests, but that didn't stop them in this particular bed. The collection also contains daylilies that are planted on top of the daffodil bulbs. The daffodils come up first and when the stems die back and cover the ground they act as sort of a mulch for the daylilies, keeping the weeds from taking over. These photos were all taken this week at the studio. Daffodil blog 2015rdDaffodil blog 2015rd

Tale of the Pup https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/3/tale-of-the-pup This painting started out from a friend's picture she had taken of her pup playing in a kiddie pool. I searched through pictures I had taken on a photo walk event to use as a background. I had taken pictures of cattails at the Village at Hendrix College that I thought might fit, but ended up using a photo of a small stream that runs along the property. At this scale it looks more like the edge of a much larger waterway. Tale of Dog 1Tale of Dog 1 Tale of Dog 2Tale of Dog 2

Groundhog Day https://www.flowergirltags.com/blog/2015/2/groundhog-day It was decided that Groundhog Day would be a great day to start off the new blog. As a studio we haven't spent much time on social media, so we are sort of peeking out at the world and adjusting to the sunshine and clouds. We are not just going to focus on photography projects, but on the process behind digital paintings, graphic designs and photo restoration. We will also be showing other inspired projects in gardening, knitting and other fun surprises! Spring is on it's way! Welcome!
