{#OurProject52} Backlight

August 6, 2015

So hard to believe that we are already at week 31 of this challenge. THIRTY ONE. I’ll let that sit. The end of the year will be here before we know it.

This week we are looking at backlight.

My little lady is quite the performer. QUITE. She enjoys singing her favorite Kidz Bop tunes into my tripod as if it is a microphone. As I was taking in one of her performances I snapped this photo. While you can’t see her clearly the backlight made this one a little special to me. Mommy’s little lady, like the sun coming through the window loves to shine!

Be sure to stop by and see what LaShawn’s pick for the week is!

{#OurProject52} Your Favorite

July 23, 2015

Not that I am awesome photographer in the least bit but there are times that I capture images where I surprise myself. Unfortunately it hasn’t been that often lately, because I would need to pick up my camera more! Nothing strokes your picture taking ego more than capturing a stellar moment.

The  photos in this post were the ones that came to mind when I think of my favorites.



TIP: Let a photo be your favorite not because it was the sharpest, or the lighting was the best. Instead let it be the ones where you remember exactly what was going on the moment you shot it. Those memories last far longer than a perfect photo!

Head over and see what LaShawn’s favorite for the week is!

{#OurProject52} Celebrate

July 9, 2015

Life has been pretty intense lately, but underneath all of the foolery there always lies a reason to celebrate. To be among the living for another second, minute, hour, day, year….is a reason to celebrate. I’m a big fan of birthdays for this very reason because when it comes to living nothing is ever promised.

This past weekend my Goddaughter celebrated her first birthday. This litte firecracker was born on July 4th and in true baby fashion she had a great time smashing the cake!

{#OurProject52} Photographer’s Choice

July 2, 2015

The time that I have to simply pick up my camera and shoot these days is pretty much non existent. Unless it is product shots for the blog, I have completely turned to using my phone to capture those spontaneous moments. My goal is to pick up my camera more  in the second half of the year. I am challenging myself to get back to using my camera from this week forward to be inspired again and take those shots that are more than spontaneous but actually thought out and planned!

This week I was categorizing all of my photos in the computer and realized how important capturing moments are because everything is different now from just a year ago. For this week I am highlighting some of my favorite photos I’ve captured of my children from Summers past!
