I was so hoping to get more of these edited for a sneak peek but with our Face 2 Face workshop this weekend and a TON of end of year activites at Gracie’s school, I just didn’t get a chance too but I quickly had to share this one. Who’s with me on pinching those sweet chubby cheeks?
Well HELLO month 9 of “What ______ Looks Like.” The month of April came and went like a blur, chalked full of birthdays, anniversaries, school activities, school testing, projects, Easter and workshop planning. Throw in some fun downtime and this is “What April Looks Like.”
Continue the circle and head on over to the blog of Sarah Cornish | My Four Hens Photography and she what she captured for her “What ________ Looks Like.”
Well hello there! Yes, I’m still here and around….just busy as a bee as I’m sure many of you are! I’m getting prepared for our second Face 2 Face in person workshop that is being held on May 19th and 20th. I’m super excited as a couple of our Bloom Forum Moderators are flying in to help out. There are two spots available so if you are interested, I would love for you to join the fun. You can read about the details HERE. And we are looking for some CUTE models for it as well. We are having a model contest so head HERE to read how you can enter you sweet little one.
So how many of you found a good blue bluebonnet field? They bloomed early didn’t they this year? We found a pretty good one in Flower Mound considering it was in the middle of town. So of course we packed up the kids to take photos and beat the crowd that was there who had the same idea. This first one below is already printed as an 8×10 and on my desk so everytime I jump on my laptop, I see those sweet faces.
First and foremost I have to apologize for the picture overload! I took these during our Spring Break vacation and just felt I needed to share all of them in one post instead of splitting them up.
As I mentioned, I captured these when we headed to San Francisco and then Carmel over Spring Break. It was so beautiful there and it was such a nice getaway. I definitely came back rejuvenated.
I’m also am so very happy because I owe many of these photos that a took from this challenge itself. Normally during vacations and special events I feel like I have to take the most amazing photos…posed, set up and oh so perfect where in the end I’m miserable, not enjoying myself and most importantly, my kids not enjoying themselves and the moment. So this year, I just left all those feelings at home, packed up my camera and just decided to shoot when I felt like it and not to disrupt any of the free-for-all fun happenings that were taking place around me.
For the most part I did it. I just let them frolick around on the beach and in the water. Now being a posed photographer, for me NOT to take a couple posed photos would well…just not be me but I would say that about 80% of the photos I came away from this trip with were all lifestyle which in turn made me happy and made them happy as well.
So I give your “What Spring Break 2012 Looks Like”:
Thanks for checking out my challenge for this month, now please continue the circle with the blog of Sarah Cornish | My Four Hens Photography and see what treat she has in store for you!
