A lot of Ava this week… a loooooot of Ava My goal next week is to get the older two more involved. ha! Hope you all had a lovely week.
Another week down. This one was a lot more challenging. It was a darrrrrrrrk, gray week here and when the sun (which was somewhere behind that thick grayness) is setting at 4:30ish- pm, your window of light is real slim. Hence the reason for lots of photos of my sweet kindergartner. She gets out of school during the right light
Ava turned 6 last month. Six. My baby is six. Say it ain’t so. Months before her special day she told me she wanted a Minnie Mouse party and a chocolate cake with pink frosting and white polka dots. And that’s exactly what we did. I wasn’t able to get a ton of photos. I now know why people hire photographers to photograph their parties. It’s a little tricky trying to hold a camera and help 7 girls with their paint brushes It was fun, and when it was done I was tired. ha!
And we can’t forget about this pretty girl…
You can just call me a really good planner, to not only have had one baby in December, but two! My sweet Stella also had a birthday. She’s now 11. I’m not sure how that’s even possible when I’m still 20 She told me, “mom, let’s not plan anything, we’ll just play games.” I like the way she thinks.
One of my goals this year is to take a photo every day with my big camera. Too often I find myself only taking photos of my family with my phone. I was greatly inspired by my friend, Rosie, of Simply Rosie Photography, and her 365 project she just completed. I’ve made it 5 days so far. It might be a miracle if I make it all 365, but I’m gonna give it my best. I can just imagine the feeling of accomplishment when the year is up and I’ll have a photo to look back on from each day. The years go by so fast, I want to make time stand still and taking photos is the closest thing to making that happen.
