recap of january

I'm glad to have a new year to blog and photograph my life story! Since it's been a while since we have talked i'd like to recap January. I always say i'll blog more so this year I won't say that. Life happens! Right now my life revolves around two important people, my husband got a new job. We are adjusting to our new norm. I'm back at work and my work in photography is growing. However, our most important new job title is mom and dad. Haylee Marie has grown so much and is 6 months old! I have been posting her milestones here on the blog. Go check out how much she has grown! I also have had my hands busy working on my hobbies: photography, couponing, home design, reading parenting/baby books, and binge watching Netflix shows/movies.

I'd like to catch us up and go through a binge on my life happenings in January. Anna and Charlie had a baby shower for baby Eli. Congratulations on the new baby boy guys! My husband turned the big 3-0! We celebrated by taking a short trip and hitting up the pool and eating lots of good food! And the first snow fall came in January and it was the first for our baby bear. She didn't really care for it, maybe next year.

I hope to do better this month blogging rather writing a long post! February is going to be fun! We have Valentine's Day and Haylee bear is turning 1/2 year old! I am also going to bring back some wedding Wednesday posts! Come back to the blog later!

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry! 
Our year was full of so many joyful experiences. Our Winter, we received snow and Haylee got to go sledding for the first time. Haylee loved it and we had lot of fun with her. She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

My 5 easy tips for Food Photography

Hi ya'll! I'm Lisa and (in case you didn't know). I'm the owner and photographer of Davong Marie Photography. I've been behind the camera lens since I was a kid and have a passion for all photography. Some is self taught, my aunt and the other is the couple of years of education from my coach KJ! My favorite to photograph is weddings and families however today I want to share my tips for photographing food. These are totally just my tips and not at all how you must do it. Photography is fun, artistic and expressive of who you are. There are so many styles and perspectives. Here are my 5 tips to photographing food:

1. Choose colors that work well together! Think about the color wheel or how you match your clothes. There are so many colors that pair well, my favorite is green and pink!

2. Try different angles. Think about how you see the subject or maybe how a bird sees your subject. My favorite angle to take of food is from the top! If you have something like a cake…
