Project 52 – Week Three – ‘Silhouette’

Week 3 was a bit of a challenge.  I want each week’s photo to be unique but meaningful.  Not just a snapshot to get the week over with.  I tried many different sources of light and angles.  And after much bribing of my first born, finally got this wonderful shot.  It was late Sunday, hours before it was due.  My DS was finally asleep and it was soon DS’s turn.  She grabbed her doggie for the last trip to the kitchen for water and I saw the light in the hallway and I knew it would be perfect.  I grabbed my camera and set up the shot quickly and asked her to stand in the light with her doggie. I had to promise her a treat of her choice, though, because let’s face it, no kid wants to pose for pictures at 9pm:)

Project 52 – Week Two – ‘Laugh’

This week’s topic was ‘laugh’.  I had a valentines session with my kids that week and had the perfect out-take to add to my project.  The kids were tired of taking pictures so I told them to relax and have fun while I ‘fiddled’ with some settings.  In the meantime, I watched them and snapped a couple candids.  :)

Yvonne - I love how they are holding hands.

First Family Session!

The S family: my first family session!  Gorgeous and fun family to photograph.

The little girls were all smiles despite the cold weather that day.  Bless their hearts!


New Years Day with Friends

I celebrated New Year’s with a friend and her two boys.  They were up for a fun, quick little session on New Years day.  Such cuties!

Project 52 Week One – ‘Self Portrait’

I signed up for a Project 52 this year. Would have loved to do a 365, but that is just setting myself up for miserable failure! I think I can manage a pic a week, however! Time to get those creative juices flowing! Week one is ‘self portrait’.
