  • Glad You’re Here!

    Hi there! My name is Linsey Stuckey. I grew up in Southern California, but right now Houston, Texas is home for us. We bought our first SLR camera two years ago and I haven’t stopped taking pictures since. Everyone needs a creative outlet right?! I love capturing moments that people might otherwise miss and seeing beauty in everyday life. Our three kids are my inspiration and my adorable husband keeps me grounded. This blog is about our “little chicks” and their silly adventures. Thanks for stopping by!

12 Portraits (4): Point of View From a Different Vantage

This month’s Project 26 theme is Point of View From a Different Vantage.  And whether or not it was smart or foolish, I tried to capture our classic annual Easter Egg Hunt!  I was up, down, and all around trying to keep up with these kiddos.  So here goes nothing!

your color always makes me long for warmer days and this week, i don’t resent seeing it as we are so close to it here :-)

…your pictures are always breezy and lighthearted and this week does speak to your “up down and around”. if i had to choose one, i would pick the third picture as there’s something about the moment you caught there – little hands, big basket, finding eggs.

12 Portraits (3): Negative Space

This month’s theme is Negative Space.  And oh how I’m loving monthly themes!  I feel like I can breathe again and soak up each moment rather than always trying to “capture” every moment.  This past week my mom and I took the kids on a surprise Disney vacation!  My mom and I are Disney fanatics and have gone on a Disney vacation with the kids each year for the past five years.

This time the kids earned gum balls for three months, one gum ball for each kind thing they did, 650 gum balls in all!  And then came the big surprise!  They were beyond excited!!  We spent a few days at Disney World and then hopped on three night Disney cruise to the Bahamas!  We spent the last day on my favorite island in the whole world, Disney’s Castaway Cay.  Pure paradise indeed!  At least our two year old thinks so!

P.S. I know the last image is a little out-of-focus, but I loved it anyway!  My camera is having serious focusing issues right now, which is causing me major frustration.  LOL.

a little one with a bandaid on her forehead no less. you never disappoint with color, and frankly right now, this made my eyes very happy. all that rich vibrant bright color. i can smell the ocean. hear the laughter. feel the sand. the one i honed in on that spoke to it all was the second to last one. those tiny feet with pink toenails and a blue shovel. that friend tells me the story. xo

Sydney has such a cute and ‘studied’ face, i.e. there’s a lot going on inside that pretty little head. Throw in some really cute feetsies and such blue, blue eyes. She is a keeper!! Can’t wait to see her.
Love, Grandpa Bobby

12 Portraits (2): Pattern, Rhythm, Shape

This week’s 12 Portraits theme is Pattern, Rhythm, Shape.  Our six year old’s favorite night of the year is the annual Daddy Daughter Valentine’s Dance!!!  It’s a night just for her and her daddy!   While these photos aren’t the most creative, I could’t help but notice how the “Pattern” in her dress, the “Rhythm” of her movements, and the “Shapes” of the hearts coincided almost effortlessly with this week’s theme.

Ginger - February 17, 2014 - 5:30 pm

I love the geometric pattern in her dress! and the pattern in his tie. well done! You have a beautiful family.

pamela joye - February 17, 2014 - 6:22 pm

you are honestly the only person i know who would have hearts painted on their entryway path :-) the photographs are all filled with your whimsical spirit and those ones of your girl with her dad – so very special.

Sara Kelly - February 24, 2014 - 3:01 pm

What a wonderful Valentine’s tradition! I went to a father-daughter dance with my dad once, and I still remember it very fondly. How wonderful for both of them that you were there to help hold on to the memory.

Lili Love - March 3, 2014 - 1:28 pm

Fabulous and so full of joy!! what a true treasure these are!!

Grandpa Bobby - March 28, 2014 - 5:43 pm

Grrrrreat series of shots! Hayley has really grown and Clint looks very suave. Love, Grandpa Bobby

Project 12 (1): Minimalist Composition

Happy New Year!  Around here the start of a new year means then start of a new photo project.  And lucky for me, the photography group I joined decided to scale back our projects this year.  Instead of posting every other week, our projects are going to be monthly . . . which means they’ve gotta be extra good!  ;o)

This first month’s theme is Minimalist Composition (aka the dreaded self-portrait).  I personally don’t even take “selfies” with my iPhone.  I would much rather photograph my adorable kids.  But, I’ve been doing yearly self portraits for five years now in various photography groups and I must admit it’s kind of fun seeing how styles have changed and the different ways I’ve interpreted myself through the years.

Here’s to this year’s self-portrait, a combination of procrastination, a mad dash home to replace the camera battery, the rapidly setting sun, my own children running wild, parasols blowing in the water, and my camera inadvertently set to JPEG. Eek!  Thank goodness for Photoshop!

pamela joye - January 22, 2014 - 3:32 pm

i see you as living all the best parts of childhood. the freedom of coloring and playing dress up. of being a ham. only you could put all the elements here together as you did and have it work out the way it has. the facial expressions, the kindness, the brightness. you are a colorful star.

Sara Kelly - January 22, 2014 - 4:58 pm

Oh my goodness, Lindsey! You take self-portraits to a whole new place! What a fun interpretation on the theme, and the parasols are so you! So much color! What a true portrait.

Carrie - January 22, 2014 - 7:42 pm

Love your interpretation. You are so beautiful and always manage to bring gorgeous color to the theme!

Ginger - January 22, 2014 - 8:45 pm

I would love to run into you while you were doing this! How fun it would be to watch! Did you use a remote or were you running back and forth with your timer like I do? These are so fun and bright, so you. You really know your style.

admin - January 24, 2014 - 10:10 pm

Ah thanks everyone! I absolutely loath doing self portraits each year, but I think it’s good for the soul. And Ginger, to answer your question, truth be told the time totally got away from me so I cheated a little bit. As the sun was setting we threw three kids in the car and raced to the park. While our three kids were running around and the parasols were blowing into the water, I positioned my husband with the camera, adjusted the settings, and told him to snap, snap, snap. So, yes, he pressed the button, but with all the craziness going on, it evens out I guess. LOL.

Lili Love - January 26, 2014 - 6:35 pm

LIndsey, i don’t know what to say, these are amazing! you are amazing you are a beautiful princess and i am convinced you smell of roses!! these are fabulous – i would love to able to do something like this – i am inspired. and i too would have loved to have come across you in the park :)

Linda - January 27, 2014 - 2:48 pm

These images all make me smile. What fun, but I also know how difficult self-portraits are, so way to go, making something difficult look fun! And as always I love your choice of fun, bright, colors!

Dad - March 28, 2014 - 5:48 pm

Muffin…
Pressed for time, and who isn’t, I think you pulled together some pictures from your days at the Y…some 12 years ago. But you are still as beautiful and sweet as ever. What is your secret?
Love, Dad

Project 26 (26): Joy

Wow!  It is so hard to believe that this is our last Project 26 theme of the year!  And what a theme to end on, JOY!  If I could think of one word to describe this past month, it would be Joy!  I love Christmastime and celebrating the birth of our Savior.  While do our best to emphasize the Savior this time of year, we like to have a little fun too!  On December 1st each year we have a tradition, the Magic Elves.  In our house the kids are more excited to see the elves than they are to see Santa!

And this year we had a new elf addition to the family, Holly.  Previously, we had Snowflake (Hayley’s elf) and Rocky (Colin’s elf).  But now that Sydney is two we thought she needed an elf too!  Hayley decided to give Snowflake to Sydney (with the blond curls and all Snowflake and Sydney share quite the resemblence) and ask Santa for a new elf.  Hayley was really hoping for Holly, which is one of Santa’s prettiest elves (and whom with the brown braids and all looked just like Hayley).

Well, Sunday morning came and so did the elves!!!  In true elf fashion there was a magical breakfast laid out for the kids filled with everything sugary and sweet (miniature red and green sugar topped pancakes, strawberries with a hint of sugar sprinkled on top, elf juice boxes, candy canes, taffy, and Christmas tree cakes for “dessert”).  And not two, but now three elves were here: Rocky, Snowflake, and Holly!!!!  The kids were completely filled with JOY!!  We were too!  I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas!

Joy
