fishing & other fun

We are feeling the heat here in NC! There has been so much going on here. I've put off this blog long enough. I'm good at making photos, but blogging is another story.

Father's day is this Sunday, and it's my husband's first one! On my twitter (@lisaanatha) I wrote a silly tweet, but it's true. I will be cooking Father's day lunch for him. He wants steak. I've located a recipe and I am really excited to try it. I hope everyone likes it! I'll keep ya'll posted! I think this blog is perfect for this weekend. Mostly because Haylee and him are in all of these photos. But Mostly because he is my number one supporter and always lets me have plenty of practice making photos and memories of our family! Hopefully Haylee will know that mommy is the one behind the camera all of the time, but she will get to see through my eyes. And it's awesome to have memories of Haylee and her daddy!! She is going to have so many memories.

This past month we have been doing so much. We went fishing for Memorial Day. Souwan and I are back in the garden. I love our garden, but I wish I could do more! We took Haylee to Dan Nick park (of course) for some splash pad fun. She had a blast. Haylee got to attend her buddy Chloe's Frozen birthday. Which was such a fun time! Of course, Haylee has been keeping up with her artwork lol and we gave her some OJ and apple juice in a sippy cup for the first time. She likes apple juice more than OJ. Check out all of our photos here.

What are ya'll up to this summer? I am enjoying everyone's vacation photos on social media! We have a beach weekend in Charleston in September. It seems so far away!

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…
