To The Moon and Back | Week 34

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

Oh. My. Heart! Emma came to me last week and asked if she could use my backup camera to do a photoshoot with her “girls” (her American Girl Dolls–she’s obsessed, to put it lightly). She had it all planned in her head: she would do it outside against the tree with the sun behind them. Well, we went outside where it was sweltering hot and a big cicada flew past us and she said “maybe we should do it inside!” So inside we went. She took one look at the high back love seat in our front living room and said “That can be their backdrop!” I gave her a quick tutorial of how manual works, set up everything and told her to watch the meter and keep it centered, then showed her how to toggle the focus and she did great! Here is a shot of her in action.

And some photos SHE took! I love how she used the rule of thirds! These are SOOC (straight out of camera) minus sharpening and resizing for the web!

And of course little brother had to get in on the action. He picked up the Argus 75 and loved looking through it. He quickly discovered you have to have good light to see the image and was telling me what he saw through it. Proud mommy moment with both of my kids asking about photography!

To The Moon and Back | Week 32

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Well it seems summer has thrown me off a tad and I missed a few weeks BUT I am not going to dwell on that. I am just happy that I am participating in such an awesome project with brilliant photographers and the best part is capturing memories of my children every week!

Let’s start with my girl, she was so cooperative this week for some “posed” pics and I LOVE the outcome! She’s so pretty. I can’t believe how mature she is looking these days! Slow down, time!

My little guy was not so into the “posed” pics this time. So I caught a few of him, then had to catch him on the go. Which I love anyway. I love his sweet little heart and how when he sees me, he stops to smileā€¦no matter what I’m doing. And give me a “kiss” through the air. Sigh.
