Joy of Love – Day 2

How She Looks

Now that I’ve learned the basics of my camera (though there is still LOTS more to learn), I’m trying to challenge myself more. One way I’m doing this is through my 365 project, but I also decided to join in Willette’s “The Joy of Love” class for the month of February. Each day there is a photo assignment to complete. Today’s topic was “How they look” which was just way too easy. As soon as I pulled my camera out, Evie started making faces at me. I love this face so much!

iheartfaces – Smile!

iheartfaces is celebrating their 2nd birthday this week and the photo challenge for the week is “Smile!”  There are some really great smile photos, so please stop by and check them out.

I haven’t participated in a while but I have the perfect photo for this one.  I had the honor of helping take photos at my cousin Jeanne’s wedding in December and this shot was one of my favorites.  She was absolutely beaming!


Just The Two Of Us

Saturday was a fun but super busy day.  After my two photo shoots, hubby met me at my sister’s house to drop the kids off for the night so we could go to a friend’s party.  We rushed home to clean up and get dressed, and before we headed out the door I suddenly decided we needed to take a couple of photos.  It is rare that we are both dressed nicely and have no kids to get in the way so we went for it.  I set up the tripod and my wireless remote and started snapping.  I was very happy with the results.  These are the best photos we have had of the two of us in a while.

Sharon & Jim

sharon maternity

I spent a couple of hours on Thanksgiving doing a maternity photo shoot for a dear friend and her husband.  Sharon has pretty much become a part of our family over the years and I had so much fun photographing them.  I haven’t finished editing all of the maternity photos yet, but wanted to share two of my favorites so far.

I am learning so much from these photo shoots and am very thankful for friends who are willing to give me the opportunity to practice my skills.  Every session helps me improve a little bit more.

My Very First Family Photo Shoot

A couple of weekends ago, I had the pleasure of doing a family portrait shoot for the Winfrey family. I was a little nervous for my first official family shoot to be a family of six, but they were so easy going that I calmed down pretty quickly and had a ton of fun.

Winfrey Family StoryboardThe best part was that I learned so much from doing this.  I have a couple more fun photo shoots coming up in the next couple of weeks (including trying to get some fun Christmas card photos of my own kids) and I can’t wait to try out all the cool things I’m learning!

Too Tired To Come Up With A Witty Title

Well, there’s nothing quite like launching a brand new site and then not adding any new content, eh? Blame it on the plague that has taken over my chest. The coughing and hacking is lots of fun, let me tell you. I have a whole new appreciation for just breathing.

In between all of that, I’ve been doping myself up to keep the fever down and working my butt off. Zach has been really needing to have his own space for a while now. He’s actually been sleeping in our office/guitar/guest/craft/shove everything room for several weeks now, so this weekend we started moving him into that room and moving my stuff out. I have a LOT of stuff. So much that I haven’t figured out where in the heck I’m going to put it all so there’s still an extra pile of junk in the middle of his room.

What was previously the playroom is now the office/guitar/craft room. I’m doing my best to keep it nice and clean looking and not junk it up, so the pile of junk has no where to go. Which means that I probably need to get rid of most of it, right? As soon as I can find the time to sort, most of it will probably be trashed but there are still some things that need to find a new home somewhere. Sadly, looking at that pile just makes me want to go crawl in my bed and sleep for a week.

In other news, I did my first family photo shoot that did not include anyone related to me this weekend. I had the chance to shoot a friend and her family and even though the location I had carefully chosen was closed when I got there, everything turned out just fine. I got some great photos of the family together, and all four boys individually so I’m putting it in the win column. I’m still sorting/editing but can’t wait to share them with the family.

I have a few more photography-related opportunities coming up in the next couple of months and I’m really excited about it. My family is getting a bit tired of me always having a camera lens in their faces, so it is really fun to have other people to shoot for a change!

I feel like I’ve been playing a huge game of catch-up lately in every aspect of my life. There are just so many things going on and I can barely keep up. What I would really like is for someone to come take over all of the un-fun stuff so I could just hang out with my hubby and kids, blog, and take pictures. Any takers?
