Spring

The {Sweet} Plunge!

So, I decided to ‘take the plunge.’  I went ahead and launched a website this weekend and followed it up with a facebook page.  If you’ve been following my blog, I would absolutely love for you to hop on over and have a peek at the website and most certainly if you have a facebook page, then link up with me there too!

As always, thank you so much for following or stopping in!

On a side note, I felt funny creating a post and including no images, so, since I have ‘how sweet it is to be loved by you’  stuck in my head, I thought I’d share an image of something sweet   🙂

Just being facetious!

Lots of hours spent in the car recently with all four children gave us a lot to laugh about.  One instance in particular comes to mind.  I made some off the handle-definitely-joking comment about a particular child’s behavior, and perhaps needing to put her on the roof.   😉    A few seconds later, you could hear the thought process of my son.  He said, “Um…that would be dangerous…remember when Daddy put the Christmas tree up there and tied it down…maybe if she holds on really tight…?”  Poor guy, here I was, completely being facetious and his mind is putting it through the ringer, with real fear for his sister’s safety.

So, today, as I was recalling that situation, I decided to post this little blurb on him.  My little boy is most often, the hardest child of mine for me to capture with my camera.  Sometimes he is more than willing and will request his picture to be taken, but, the second my lens is pointed at him this funny, square, ‘cheese’ smile is forced across his face (even if he were laughing in the moment prior).  His birthday was back in March & I took him out with the hopes of capturing a little bit of his personality.  We really adore this tunnel of trees and always have a good time when I attempt pictures here.   🙂     He started dancing in the street, completely on his own accord, which had me grinning ear to ear to say the least!

Dancing caused his temp to rise & so he took off his sweater for the remainder of the pictures.  I thought I’d include this picture because I was trying out a different style of editing…not sure how I feel about it, none-the-less, thought I’d share it.

For those of you who have requested certain images, I am absolutely honored to have my work in your home!  Not to mention, thank you for the sharing the stories as to why those particular photos really struck a cord for you!  For any of you who are interested, but, shy or hesitant, please ask away!  The images are free   🙂    like I said, I’m just thrilled to share my joy, have you following along & even more delighted to have my work displayed in friends & family’s homes!

Thank you so much for following along on my journey!


On such a gloomy day…

Since today is so overcast & gloomy here in Georgia, I thought I’d perk up us locals and post an array of cherry blossoms from our first days of spring.  If some of you northerner’s can believe this, these pictures were taken in the very first days of MARCH!     😀


Dandelion Heaven!

OH, NO WAY!  Who on earth is this obsessed with dandelions!?!   😀   I took these in, you guessed it, April!  You’re either going to love this post, or not!  Clearly, I had a ton of fun with these soft, furry – WEEDS.  To some, they’re annoying (to anyone trying to keep their yard weed free), they’re great fun (to any child!), they’re inspiration (to anyone who likes to explore with their camera)!

My apologies in advance.  I think I have gone to dandelion heaven!  I had a really, really hard time narrowing it down!  Believe it or not, this is narrowed down!  I hope you won’t feel like you’re seeing the same image or dandelion over & over again!  Most definitely, you are not!  They are from different places, different days, different times.

Enjoy!  BTW, if anyone is interested in making one of these wall art in YOUR own home, just message me.   🙂   Or for that matter, if you are interest in any particular pictures from previous posts.  Some of these captures are great wall art for anyone’s home.  Like the trains, the Japanese Maples, the mysterious fog, the fall leaves, the icicles or winter scene, the roses…  just email me at jc@jilliancobbphotography.com

Dry or wet!?  SO much fun!

Do you see the little blurred dots as we’re looking through the top layer of the dandelion?

Just My Babies

Today, I thought I would post some of “just my kids”   🙂      I am always trying to catch them doing what they do!  Of course, there are all kinds of ages and stages kids go through.  These are some of the ones mine are going through right now.

They play together A LOT.

Clearly, they sometimes have trouble reaching, or seeing things.

A girl after my own heart, often with her nose in a book.

Always doing ‘stuff’ with these little man hands.

…on the go, in the full swing of things…

…and one of my favorites, discovering and really checking things out.


War of the Roses…

I’ve jumped ahead to these roses, which were photographed in May.  Although, I still think I might revisit some more photos from April.  For now though, I am having my own war of the roses!  I couldn’t decide, but, I believe I will be printing one of these for wall art in one of the girls rooms.

If you liked these at all, wait till you see my war of the dandelions!


Besties…whether you like this word or not…that’s what they are!

Here we are still in April…

These lovely, young girls met shortly before they turned the ripe old age of two.  They are best friends, and quite simply, might as well be sisters.  Our families are as close as you can be without actually sharing a blood line.  Every now and then, we kind of celebrate how & when we came to be.

On this particular day, these two came to me, changed into dresses, with huge smiles on their faces, and requested my company outside complete with camera.  Busy patterns and all, I could not resist!

It was a warm spring evening filled with laughter, thumb wrestling, dancing, spinning, hand holding, mystery solving, and just being young.

 

 

 

Free, lighthearted fun!  The delight of being young!

What do you think they were thinking?  Where were they headed?  Mystery solving?

 

 

Tune in soon to see what else I’ll be pulling out of the relatively recent past!


It’s no mystery! :) …and isn’t this guy beautiful!?

This is the closest I have gotten to any butterflies.  They sunbathe for a little bit, then sense me & flutter off.  Man they sure are quick & hard to track to their next resting place.  I think I may have to plan a trip to a butterfly garden soon!

Ha.  Here I am. Finally.     😀

Life. It’s gets so busy right!?!  Of course, there is little mystery, about what it is that I’ve been up to.  Although, being that this is, a photographic journey that you’re on with me, I am going to clear up some of whatever mystery there may have been.     😉

Some snaps, some obsessive macro, some…, well, you’ll see!

Here we are venturing back to April!  =/

I’ve decided to give a rather sporadic update and will be catching up with several posts in the days to come.  Not to worry, but, by days to come, I mean, this & next week!         😉

With all the sweet warmth and spring in full effect, we spent lots of time outdoors, enjoying the fruits of the season.

Not to worry, as if you were, lol!  Another post is ready to be served up tomorrow   🙂

Btw, thank you again for all the support, kind words, messages, emails and inquires, I truly appreciate it.
