I love taking pictures. I have always loved taking pictures. I feel like I can bottle a moment in a way that makes people remember a time in their lives fondly. I love the pictures I have of my own children and friends and family and want to be able to provide that for more people.
Wear clothes that you love. Go somewhere where you are comfortable and that fits your personality. Lay around, be yourself, send the kids to the playground, and just let me follow you around with a camera.
If you want to check out some galleries of these moments, visit www.whitneyloibner.com. At the site you can check out my portfolios of seniors, families, kids, & couples as well as the JamesFam gallery that I have unlocked to give a better portrayal of what I do.

On Monday Wilson saw a lemonade stand while we were visiting a friends house. He decided at that very moment that was a good way to make a little money and was not going to let me forget it. So yesterday afternoon we sat up a stand in Craig and Julie's front yard.
The boys even stripped down for a little fun in the water sprinkler.

I know that I often times talk about my love for our local Farmer's Market, but this past Saturday I thought the back of my car said it all.

Pete has been keeping in touch through messages sent from another team members blackberry. I have heard from him at each stop and they are now on their way from Nirobi to Migori by van. They made it safely to Nirobi and with all luggage in hand, a huge blessing.

I just returned home from taking Pete to the airport. He is on his way to Kenya for what i'm sure will be an exciting adventure. And another adventure is his new blog. He started it to share about his trip, so check it out@ www.loibner.wordpress.com.

Today when I was about to eat my lunch I decided to take a few pics before digging in. Other than people, food is my favorite thing to photograph.
And did I mention my love for tomatoes? A caprese salad is the best on a summer day, especially with a perfect Arkansas tomato and basil from the yard.

I was a little worried that after we did Wilson's special day it might be a little while before we got to Campbell's day, but I had forgotten my husbands sensitivity to the "often forgotten youngest child." No worries because this child does not let himself be forgotten.
We took Campbell to the new pedestrian bridge. It connects NLR to LR and is actually an old train bridge.
It is an amazing playground!!! It has views of the river and instead of a classic playground it is one slide and a series of tunnels, ladders, and climbing rocks. It even has a really neat fountain-ish thing for the kids to play in- bring your swimsuit.
We had cheese dip for lunch (Campbell's fav) and ended our special time with a little Father/son nap.
We feel so blessed to have 2 such wonderful little guys.

When we left Hot Springs we went straight to Julie's house for a yummy dinner. She had made a big cookie that the boys got to decorate as an American flag.
We had an awesome day! Now I must go get my children out of time out- I am paying the price today for an exciting day yesterday. Maybe we will all get a nap.

Yesterday morning the James and I headed to Hot Springs for a little 4th of July fun. We played hard and ate lots- my favorite things on the 4th.
All the kids had so much fun in the pool. The James children are like little fish, Lucy thought she could swim without any help-so cute.
Campbell is wearing both a life jacket and a floaty, but he gets where he wants to go so he is happy.
Wilson has just started swimming w/o help and he was doing a great job. Nathan even taught him how to dive, hard to believe he is such a big boy.

I spent Saturday morning wondering the streets of Argenta. After being rained out of taking some portraits I decided to take full advantage of my babysitter and spend a little time alone with my camera.
