For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.




A rekindling experience of love through imagery.

Trip to the Zoo! | Travel Monroe Files Photography

Before this fall weather snuck in, some friends and I took a trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo one hot and humid day in August.

Majority of the animals were too hot to be active.
Couldn't blame them!

Gator! Could this be the same guy they have for sale at Pet Place in the mall?
I am still baffled as to what a person does with a pet gator when it hits 12 feet long.
Anyone wanna offer suggestions? TL? Parker Dam? Ain't gonna fit in the tub!


Rhino man! My hubby loves these guys. My guess is because they look similar to Dinosaurs.


King of Jungle. Mufasa? I am totally hearing The Lion King Theme!


Wifey is sleeping there to the left.


Look at the baby!!


This baby elephant was huge...for being a baby. :)


Giraffes. Such beautiful animals.
Ever wonder where God gets his inspiration to make each animal so unique?


Sneaking up the tree...


To try and get a nice green leaf. Poor guy tried for 15 minutes trying to get that branch!


My FAVORITE flower! Hibiscus. This was the size of a basket ball!


Can't remember the name of these pretty flowers.


Hello Joe! Wish they had a baby in their pouch!
That would have totally made my day!
A fun trip besides it being KIDS DAY! And super stinking HOT.
I haven't tripped over so many strollers and fearing my life as kids barrelled past me!
Only kidding! There were too many cute kids to aww over!
The look on their faces was priceless. Oh, to be a child again. :)

Dew DAHS 2010 | Senior Portraits Monroe Files Photography

I don't know about anyone else but August has FLEW by! It seems like yesterday it was my birthday, I blinked and here we are with 2 days left in August! GOOD GRIEF! I totally lied to myself when I said, "Oh, things will calm down after the wedding." HA. Not so much!
Here are Dew's senior photos! Had such a fun time running around the area and making him do stuff he wasn't very excited to. But it got him some awesome photos!

And he's supposed to wear football pads under that jersey?!

One of my faves!

Posing with the score board.


Off to brown springs! Wasn't prepared to get wet :)


Another fave!!


This one too!

What a cutie !
Something tells me "cutie" probably isn't at the top
of his list of words to describe Dew :)

American Eagle Advertisement if I ever saw one!


Tough guy.





Ah, yes the outhouse. Time for some fun!
"Hurry up in there!"




Another fave! I have lots :)



More photos with the jersey...the black one this time!


Tough guys rock wet pants like no ones biznatch.
Yea, I went there. So what? :)


The end zone stance.
Ready to rock his senior year!


The nonchalant tough guy.


Laid back tough guy.


Serious tough guy.


The train station.
Dew and I were dying to know what was upstairs...


ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
Everything about this photo screams "YUM !"
My fave of the faves for sure!

Besides an outhouse, we found a telephone...

And had more fun :)
Dew, enjoy your senior year to the fullest! It will FLY by! Take lots of pictures of the friends you share this time with, because you never know what the future will bring. I am planning on seeing you in action at Mansell Stadium! And if for some reason the football thing doesn't work out for ya and you want to model, call me! :D
