Rockin' The Empty Nest

Me as a boat maker!

Posted by in Crafts, DIY, Pam Rowell Photography, Photography, Uncategorized

I saw a cute pin on Pinterest. It was a boat sailing through the bluebonnets. I thought that would be the perfect thing to do for children’s mini sessions. I asked around on Facebook to see if anyone had a small boat I could use. It seems that was not to be. I decided I could make a boat! I really didn’t think it would be that difficult. I was trying to make it economically. I started with a moving box left over from our move. I used a sharp…read more

A month has passed – is that all?

Posted by in Pam Rowell Photography, Photography, Uncategorized

When I looked at my last post, it shows only a month and 3 days have passed. I would have sworn it was so much more! When I posted in March, it had been a month since I last posted. That time, I blamed it on me and being sick. This time, the blame lies with Dean. I guess it was the Sunday after my last post, when he wrecked his motorcycle. Thankfully, his only injury was a broken rib. Of course, that made him miserable. I have been super…read more

My Chair & Backdrop

Posted by in Crafts, DIY, Furniture Fixups, Pam Rowell Photography, Photography, Uncategorized

Last week, I was approached about photographing the Daddy/Daughter Ball. I wanted it to be a special event. I did some browsing through Pinterest and other photographers’ websites. I came up with a plan. I looked all over town for the right kind of crepe paper to make a fun, more 3D background. I couldn’t find it. Instead, I ended up with regular rolls of paper. I figured that out, then I needed a prop or bench. I decided to check out the local Goodwill. I had a 3.99 credit,…read more

Finger Painting

Posted by in Crafts, DIY, Pam Rowell Photography, Photography

We have the sweetest neighbors! They have graciously accepted us into the family.  They invited us down to finger paint. Dean was working on the chair and I was working on the backdrop. I was going to skip it – in fact, I told Lisa I couldn’t. Dean went to the store for primer. On his way back, he drove by and stopped for a visit. He came home and told me I should take my camera. I couldn’t resist!

ABC Challenge

Posted by in Photo Challange, Photography

The ABC challenge is one of my favorites, so I am not sure why I am having such a hard time with it this year. Part of it is the weather keeping me inside more. Last week, every time I went out, I was heading to the gym. I just didn’t get out to take many photos. I really use that as a way to increase me creativity. I need to keep up with it. So, here are a few more. I am playing catch up this week!   C…read more

Working the Biz

Posted by in Photo Challange, Photography

This morning I spent a lot of time working on the photo business doing some marketing and planning. Lots of ideas working in my head. I went to a friend’s this afternoon to discuss photos. I was able to show her some things on her camera. That was so much fun. I really enjoy what I do and getting to share about it is just plain fun. It is only January 2, and I was already one day behind on my photo challenge for the month. We are doing the…read more

Happy New Year and New Blog!

Posted by in Family, Photography

Yes, I have done it again. I have started a new blog. This time, I actually purchased the name. I plan to keep it and keep Rockin’ the Empty Nest with Dean. Today has been a drab and dreary day here in Round Rock, Texas. It has been made even more dreary by me waking up feeling bad. That means, we won’t get to celebrate with our family this evening. We’ll hang out together. What a difference a year makes! This time last year, we were in Tennessee getting ready…read more
