I am a homeschool mom to 5. I love to go to events and on hikes and share them with others. I am not taking any photography clients at this time.
Operating as usual
I decided I wanted to finish my Michigan blog post for my birthday 😉 HA! I fell in love with the Upper Peninsula and would love to live there! But maybe not in the winter 😉
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com I convinced my husband to take the really long way to Minnesota! We drove up through Michigan, including the whole upper peninsula! I had never been up their before and it was beautiful!!! It was also our first time tent camping with 5 kids! So of course it rained! First stop was Ludington State Par...
My kids asked if I was going to take my last day of being 36 pic like I do for them. ;) Goodbye 36.
Found a model last night for my pic ;)
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com We went on a trip last month to see family in Indiana and Minnesota! While there I took some half face shots of my nieces and nephews for a possible grandkids wall ;) And Nick let me get a shot of him so now I have my whole family! Not sure what I will do…
Time change got me for my nightly pic. Ha. Little dark.
All that rain brought some gorgeous mushrooms!
She did not even know she made this face! 😂 Constant rain the last few days!
I got to take pics of one of my sister's while in Indiana! So fun!
My nightly photos looked a bit different in the last week, while in minnesota visiting family it snowed!
Still taking nightly pics. Enjoy the slow moment.
It's that time of year. Purple pokeberries and tarantulas.
Couldn't leave out our favorite pup ;)
One more. Unless I can talk Nick into it ;) ha
The last five nights I took a kid out and took a pic of them. Love them. Beautiful photographer I follow does sessions like this and I always wanted to try it on my kids. Kylaewert on instagram.
Chilly and windy out? This is my favorite spot. Also these guys are fascinating but horrifying at the same time.
Guess who forgot her nightly photo? Oops. After 4months I was not giving up just because it was dark out though! I did check all around me several times to make sure nothing was creeping up on me ;) here are the other pics I have been taking the last week.
This was not our greatest rving experience but it did have some nice moments and a beautiful campground.
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com This camping spot was very quiet and peaceful. Which is really nice unless you are a family of seven with really loud kids and a dog... I still really liked it though. Beautiful I loved the pine forest in the middle of the sites. There was no hiking that I knew of but the walk…

Well the fall garden has not been easy yet due to pests but I am still hoping. And all my peppers are finally taking off. I wonder if it is too late for them? I have been going out every evening, just making it earlier and earlier.
It is officially really dark outside when I usually go out and no bats. Ha. Going to try a little earlier. This camera can take pics even when it is pretty dark but I am on edge that a critter is going to sneak up on me. And I don't want to walk around to find something interesting to take a pic of. Ha
Went out looking for bats but no dice tonight.
Right when I think there is nothing much to see anymore outside at night. I saw bats swooping down around me, eating. So cool.
Tomatoes are growing all over my porch.
It's up! Here is what we are using this year with links. I linked mostly Christianbook.com because it seemed to be cheaper but some of these can be found other places I am sure.
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com Both my boys are doing 9th grade this year and here is what they are doing. Science -Masterbooks General Science 2 (except for the Archaeology book, they did that with the Biblical Archaeology study) History-Masterbooks The World's Story 2 & 3 (trying out just having them read the chapters and takin...
4 months in. I would like to keep going and see if I can get to 6months but I am not sure yet what that will look like. Ha. Getting dark. ISO 16000
I don't think he wanted a photo tonight 🤣
It was crazy dark outside tonight but I want to play with my iso on my camera. When I could not even see myself to focus I decided to turn on my phone light to get my focus. And got this. Phone light, high iso, sitting on my front step. I really like how it turned out.
Ready to eat some watermelon. Hopefully before Milo figures out it's food...also he is failing at his job. Robbing the garden and not scaring off snakes. Had another "mom there's a snake!!!" Scare tonight. No positive ID but the eyes were wrong for a put viper. Still...
I decided to do something different this year. I am sharing what curriculum we continued using last year and what we dropped. Let me know if this was helpful and I might do it next year also. Getting a new post of our current years curriculum ready.
daniellehuddlestonphotography.com I thought I would give an update on what curriculum worked well for us last year. This is the original post with my thoughts on the curriculum added in bold. Let me know if this was helpful to you.For Kindergarten this year I am trying out Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons. *I…
Trying out fall gardening. Hopefully this little guy will help it not be a flop ;)
Love the trellis I made, covered in tomatoes.
When you decide to kill two birds with one stone. Nightly pic and the tomatoes got picked ;)
We have a tomato thief in our midst...
