McKay Art Photography

I'm back to work with my Photography!
I use to work doing weddings, now I can work from home and sometimes on the field.
This is my passion, love faces and at home it's me my dog and my husband.
I'm practicing on me , hope you don't get sick of looking at me.

I'll be adding some of my work along with desert recipes that I love.
BTW....I added all my previous blogs here, so some posts may seem a bit odd.
Much Love,

Much love,

Soft Ivory Light

I often think of the color Ivory in the winter.
Some how it makes me feel warm! 

Does one wake each day to beauty?
Can I find it deep inside myself?

The color Ivory also makes me quiet.
A whisper through the halls
A light guiding me to rightness. 

Be quiet my soul

Keeping my eyes towards Heaven.
Much love

Brown Sugar and Blueberries

I've had a complete change in how I approach a wardrobe these days.
I love colors, and sometimes I would get stuck in wearing only blacks or whites.
I'm picking up on nature....God's colors.

I call this my brown sugar and blueberry out fit. 

Loving big chunky necklaces!!

Sweater tights and boots.


Yesterday the sky did clear, after some time of rain for days.
Until next time.....much love!

Updated Library

I am always changing things around ! I am also forever finding books!!

I have more room for books and wee spots to study.

Peace and Blessings



Happy Thanksgiving to all! This is a wonderful time of year and we have so much to be thankful for!

I pray for warm feelings of love, family and friends....

happy and peace filled homes....
