Fresh Okra


I recently had a taste for my potato okra soup concoction, but alas we were all out of the okra and tomatoes from our garden. No problem, I’ll just hop on over to the store and purchase the ingredients, after all they were grown SOMEWHERE right?…


Sigh… Looks yummy, smelled yummy, but alas, there is just NO substitution for okra plucked fresh from the garden… So you guessed it, this year we will have many more okra stalks growing at Casa Del Smith! 

Realization, Redemption, Restoration

I remained up late this evening (morning? lol) just to share this link which has personal significance to my Fav and I, and to bring awareness to an awesome Indie film which will be released in a theater near you on March 23 called October Baby.


AND if you have not seen it already (even if you have) get your hands on the DVD Courageous. There a few films that I believe are a must see, and these two make the list. It is rare that you leave a movie theater inspired to do and be more while at the same time feeling clean, forgiven, directed and washed. If you have the chance check out the other videos at www.everylifeisbeautiful.com

and remember,

Romans 8:1
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Lady Marjane – Teasers


Not two days ago, I had the pleasure of capturing some amazing images of the fabulous Marjane. Now I could blog on and on about how she is truly one of my favorite clients, or how she pushes me to continually create beautifully interesting images, but she is waiting, oh–so-patiently to see these teasers of hers, so I will suffice it to say, we had a blast! Next time bowling lanes!

Enjoy your teasers Lady! The rest will come soon!

Bowling Alley


So I recently had the great pleasure of being introduced to BEX. Absolutely awesome service and so accommodating. If you live in the Lancaster CA area, I recommend you try this place at least once. The experience alone is worth it. Tell them LaShunda the Photographer sent you =-)

Evening Out


So My Fav and me went out this evening to see a depiction of a story I’d heard often as a child and variations in my adulthood, Casaq the Eagle. Some may know it as the Eagle and the Chickens. It’s an old Native American Tail of an eagle who was displaced in a farm yard who grew up as a chicken, until his true destiny was revealed to him.

This depiction focused on mentorship, thankfulness, and forgiveness.

It was a very pleasant evening filled with singing, dancing, flying eagles, flags… So glad we decided to go!
