Project 52: Week 24 – Photographer’s choice

Yay! This week is photographer’s choice!

I’ve been trying to get a kind of backlit shot of E, to showcase her ever slowly growing locks. 🙂 While this isn’t what I had imagined (why won’t she stop moving??), I love her eyes in this one.


Love this girl!

This week: Slowing it down!



Project 52: Week 23 – Low Key (E’s new personality).

This week Last Week’s theme was Low Key. I’m behind again. Opposite of High Key, basically an image that is primarily blacks and grey’s, with a histogram pushed to the left.

The darker, moodier feel of these types of images gave me inspiration on what to capture – Miss E’s new personality.

Now, from birth, my babies have been completely different people. B was just so hard as a baby. So much crying, colic, clinginess, etc. And that really went almost until his first birthday. As he’s grown older I would also describe him as cautious, sweet, routine oriented, and a good listener.

Well. Miss E has been quite an easygoing baby. Happy to be put down, play alone, go with the flow. However, in the past few weeks to a month, we have seen recklessness, sass (oh, so much sass) and her newest trait – drama. In true 1 year old fashion, she will now respond to any situation she does not find ideal with utter crying screaming meltdowns. (That will stop at the drop of a hat if she gets what she wants. The screams literally turn into giggles instantly) It’s wonderful. I know its a phase, I remember it with B, but its just so much… more with her.

This was her response from being put on the floor from the couch after trying to throw herself off of it (remember reckless?)


Happy Weekend!


Project 52: Week 22 – High Key

I did IT! Haha. I kind of thought this was going to be another week I would procrastinate on and become weeks behind. This morning I was tending to my flowers (all four of them), and clipped off an old bloom. Then it clicked and I got my camera and a white piece of paper. Here is the tutorial if you need it, for High Key. I didn’t go that big of an effort, but the new week starts today!


This is another one. It’s not edited, but I like the dreamy out of focus look to it.


This week: Low Key.
