Summer Time Vibes


So I did a little shopping....can't wait to get these items!  And now, time to clean out the closet ;) to make some room!

Please tell me I am not the only person that cleans out their closet every time they get a new outfit? LOL

She & I | Blog Refocus


As I've said before-this blog was originally created just to get "stuff off my chest" and to capture moments in time, I wanted to remember forever-without putting on facebook or instagram, an online journal if you will.

I have a horrible memory, and I do want to remember my joys & pains.  I want to look back on them and reflect on my personal growth.  I also want it to be in the universe that I existed, even in my own small way.  It has been my intention, as well - to start blogging more specifically gearing towards my life as a mother and more specifically a bonus mom to Olivia.  Because, she & I have a beautiful story to tell.

with love, Lela

Lily Modeling


I put out a facebook cry for help recently, asking for some people to volunteer themselves or maybe their children to model for me.  I had several responses, and this Sunday I was able to meet up with my first model volunteer.

We decided to do our camera test at the river right about sundown.  We just walked the bank and I just asked her to act natural while I shot.  I wanted to see what her level of comfort was & how she'd photograph.  Our next session will be guided with pose ideas, because she did beautifully & is very very photogenic.  Don't you think (this is just a quick teaser) you can see more on my art facebook page @lelajohnson.art or wait for my blog post on www.lelajohnson.com :D


with love, Lela
