  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi, I'm Linsey Stuckey. And it’s no secret that I love taking pictures. I went from being an attorney to a stay-at-home mom to a natural light photographer. I love looking at the world through the lens of my camera and capturing moments that most people might otherwise miss.

    And yes, it's true! We had our third child in November, a baby girl. She's utterly adorable. And while I love my clients, because our kiddos are so little right now, I'm going to take a few years off to spend more time with my family. It was a hard decision to make, but it's worth it. Your kids are only little once. I say cherish each and every moment.

    Of course I'll still be blogging and shooting (What can I say?! Pictures make me happy), so I hope you'll stick around. I also have a few exciting things in the works, one of which should be finished this January. So excited about that!!!

    Happy 2012!!!

52 on Friday (2) Newness

This week’s Fifty-Two on Friday theme is Newness.  Yes, we certainly have a little bit of newness in our home right now, a brand new baby girl.  I had her just barely two months old.  While most people call her Sydney, to us she goes by “Itty Bitty Cocoa Puff,” “Littlest Baby,” “Little Miss Squeaky,” “Sydney Baby,” and “Bitsy.”  Yes, Sydney is still very Itsy Bitsy.  She has an older sister who simply adores her and could stare at her all day long.  Frankly, I could too.  I look into her eyes and just melt.  I hold her and never want to let her go.  And she’s not just new to us, but we’re also new to her.  I wonder what goes through that little mind of hers as she looks out onto the world trying to piece together the puzzle and figuring out where she fits in.  Right now she knows we love her, she knows that for sure.

P.S. I really wanted to get my two year little boy in these pictures, but he was being a little stinker.  So this time, Hayley had her new baby sister all to herself.

52 on Friday (1) You

I am so excited for 2012 and a journey that I am embarking on with 19 other photographers!!  It’s a 52 week project whereby each week we’re given a new theme to photograph, which forces us to stretch our creativity and keep us actively engaging our love for photography!  The themes for this year are pretty challenging.

And the fun part is seeing what everyone else has come up with.  Each week under my post will be a link to another photographer, and she will link to another photographer, and it’ll keep going until it brings you full circle back here!  I engaged in a similar project last year and LOVED it.  I just need to think of bigger and better bribes for the kiddos because they literally run from the camera!

We have some amazingly talented ladies in this group and I’m thrilled to be included.  This first week’s assignment is You(as in a self portrait).  As much as I love taking pictures, that love doesn’t extend to taking pictures of myself. :o) But, I tried to have a little fun anyway.  Here’s to 2012 and this amazing 52 week journey!

Our Silly Elves

If you’ve been following this blog at all you’ll know that our house was recently invaded by two very silly and quite mischievous little elves, Puppy and Snowflake.  Yes, my little two year old named his elf Puppy.  The elves appeared at our breakfast table the morning of December 1st (see HERE) with a note saying that the Elves had come down from the North Pole and were to report back to Santa whether our kids had been naughty or nice.  Seems simple enough.  We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into.

Aside from their specific errand from Santa, these elves had a wee too much fun during the night while the rest of us were nestled all snug in our beds.  Each morning our kids were spring from their beds (sometimes even before the sun was up) and race around the house searching for the elves.  And what a surprise we would fine!  Thankfully the elves are now safely back at the North Pole with Santa.  Of course we took pictures to send to Santa.  Here’s some more mischief they got into . . .

52 on Friday (50) Remember & Reflect

The last and final Fifty-Two on Friday theme for 2011 is Remember & Reflect.  And I must admit one of the best things I did this year was the Fifty-Two on Friday project.  It was so challenging at times (uncooperative weather, fussy kids, vacations, family in town, morning sickness, having a baby, etc.), but looking back on it all it was oh so worth it.  I think of all the fun things I did with my kiddos that I may not have otherwise captured were it not for this project.  I made a commitment to post each and every week and I pulled it off!!!  Whoa hoa!

And in terms of what I’d change for next year . . . it would definitely be to spend more time with my family, namely my husband and our three kiddos.  I made the decision midway through this past year to stop shooting professionally and it was the best decision I could have made.  I soon realized that all my free time was spent behind the computer editing photos of other people’s kids rather than photographing and spending time with my own.  It was hard to give up the extra income and I know this isn’t the right decision for everybody, but it was the right decision for me.  And even though my kids still run from the camera, I think they might be coming around.:) Here’s to some of my favorite Fifty-Two on Friday memories of 2011!

52 on Friday (49) Christmas

This week’s Fifty-Two on Friday theme is Christmas!  Yes, this is indeed the best time of year.  I love the joy that fills the air, the remembrance of our Savior, the decorations hung all about, the warmth from our fireplace. all the fun Christmas music and movies, and of course . . . our magical elves.  Yes, they’ve been getting into A LOT of mischief lately.  This morning we caught them having s’mores by the fireplace.  This gave our kids an idea . . . let’s make s’mores too.  So tonight we all got into our Christmas jammies, laid out a ton of blankets and pillows, and made s’mores by the fireplace while watching the classic claymation cartoon Santa Claus is Coming to Town.  Christmastime is here.
