I am so excited to be back with some of my favorite ladies - the talented women of 30 Minutes in the Life! The thirty minutes I'm choosing to share from March was low-key and relaxed; I spent some time hanging out with my youngest on the bed. As you'll see, her patience with me was wearing a little thin by the time we were through. ;-) When you're finished, please click on to the next blog in the circle, belonging to the very talented Lea Jones! Be sure to check out her Facebook and Instagram, too! 

Thanks for stopping by!!

This group of ladies are some of the most talented I've seen, and truly some of the most precious souls I know. Thank you so much for having me back, girls! Love y'all!!

When you're finished, please continue through to see the work of someone whose photographs and heart inspire me daily, Cindy Cavanagh | Lifestyle Photographer in Sydney.

Christian and Aiza | March 2015 https://www.maryslone.com/blog/2015/12/christian-and-aiza Yep. You read that correctly. I am just now blogging a session from MARCH.

How humiliating.

I am so far behind on my blogging it looks like I'm in first place. I have made it one of my last-minute 2015 goals to have my business blog caught up entirely by the end of 2015. That's a pretty tall order, but I think I'm up to it.

So, on that note, I give you the sweet Christian and Aiza, from last March. Such a sweet couple and a beautiful pear blossom session -- it's really a bummer I didn't get around to blogging it sooner.

So we hit the park.

30 minutes in the life | may 2015 https://www.maryslone.com/blog/2015/5/30-minutes-in-the-life-may-2015 Well hello strangers! Long time, no see!! <3 
 

After missing the last few months with my 30 minutes in the life ladies, I'm thrilled to be back this month! Turns out, the reason I've missed so many in a row is because I have been a busy little bee, working on building this new website! What do y'all think?? Take a few minutes to poke around, if you can. I hope you like it! 
 

This month has been wet and muggy here in Mississippi, so we've found ourselves spending a lot of time indoors. By late last week, boredom had officially set in for Sophie, as she anxiously awaited the last day of school - she couldn't wait for her big brother and sister to be home with her all day! 
 

This is a glimpse into how we passed the time... 
 

(When you're finished here, be sure to click on over to the gorgeous work of Karen Hunt, Remington, Virginia Photographer)
 

Thanks so much for stopping by my new digs! Hope you like the new look! 
 

Don't forget to go check out my friend Karen's 30 minutes!

151/365 for the 100th day of school, you were to dress like you were 100 years old.

152/365 girl talk.

While I did have a few shots I felt were kind of cute, this week definitely also saw some stinkers. So, my apologies about that. But I guess I can't really expect 365 winners, right?

139/365 no-pants dance. #pottytraining

 140/365 nice little morning

30 Minutes in the Life {December, 2014} "Festive Five" https://www.maryslone.com/blog/2014/12/30-minutes-in-life-december-2014-1 Wow, what a crazy month it has been! Between ear infections, bronchitis, croup, and a myriad of assorted cold-type illnesses, we've spent most of December sick. Thankfully, instead of doing a full 30 minutes this month, the 30 Minutes in the Life gals have decided to do a "Festive Five" - five photos, in five minutes. 

I chose Christmas morning + new toys.






(Yes, someone is missing! Caleb had already abandoned the family to go show the neighbor boys his new Legos.) 

Thanks for looking, as always! Now be sure to follow the circle on around to see the beautiful work of  my sweet friend, Sharleen.

I have two sick kids at home. I'm getting sick, too. I'm exhausted. So there will be no heartfelt, snazzy commentary this week. Honestly, we're lucky I have pictures to share at all... 

sunday, 11/30/2014 | 125/365 i hate it when you're sick.

monday, 12/1/2014 | 126/365 you set up shop here all on your own. it's my favorite spot, too.

tuesday, 12/2/2014 | 127/365 daredevil, adrenaline junkie

wednesday, 12/3/2014 | 128/365 the one with the pudding

thursday, 12/4/2014 | 129/365 busted, pop-tart thief. 

friday, 12/4/2014 | 130/365 i love that you still love to play dress up.

saturday, 12/5/2014 | 131/365 i had planned to do all black & white this week... but I just couldn't convert this.  
...day-dreaming...

Next in our little line-up is my sweet friend, Lori. She is fabulous- go see for yourself!
