The Woman Behind the Lens

Hello. Madison here. You may or may not know me. I'm Kirstens best friend. Shes awesome. Aunt Steen is my other best friend. We get each other. Both of us have a quirky sense of humor. We have a grand ol' time together. She also taught me everything I know about photography. So you may be alarmed that instead of the elouquent and witty Aunt Steen posting her thoughts, you're reading the ramblings of a teenager. My apologies. But if its any consolation, I got her to let me make a whole post just on her in the kitchen. Enjoy!


She was teaching me how to change the focal point.

Helping the children with their homework while cooking dinner. She can do it all.

onions are gross...

When I go back and think of my Aunt Steen I will always remember her with a glass of ice tea.

I wish everyone could have tasted this deliciosness. It was life changing.

This is the first apron she has owned as a domestic housewife. Uncle Steen would never allow an apron in the house. But Aunt Steen insisted on not ruining all of her clothes now that shes cooking every night.

I like this picture because Aunt Steen has a nice laugh, and I love when she is laughing.

Got the sniffles?

trying out interesting angles.

She came down to see what shenanigans the dynaminc duo had gotten into this time. She tries to stifle a yawn at all of our excitement.

Awwh. What a good helper.

Somebody kept hiding from the camera. Mostly under the kitchen table. We couldn't find her for awhile.

The multitasker with her fine china.

Another good helper!

You dont see this because Aunt Steen only posts the rare good pictures she snaps of Kir, but this is how the majority of attempted shots turn out.

Em is clearly not enthused about having to come out of her hiding spot.

The meal was divine. Everyone should get to taste Aunt Steens great cooking.
I love you so much. Thanks for having me come on. I really think you're the prettiest person I know and there should be more pictures of you on here. Okay. I'm done.
