Project 365: Week 1

Well, I managed to stick with my Project 365 for a whole week (yay me – I think this calls for celebration!). I made it a habit of taking my DSLR with me everywhere and the idea of taking photos of the kids inside my home motivated me to deep clean everything because, let’s face it, who wants to see my messy house? I know I don’t want to look back on these images of my family and think “Geez, I wish I’d cleaned/picked up…”.

I’m pretty happy with this first week and looking forward to many more! Here’s my images for the first seven days:

My little snow bunny Ella enjoying the snow at our cabin. I love seeing the world thru her eyes as she is so full of wonder and excitement!

When your muffin is practically bigger than your head! Hannah and I make it a point to have mommy/daughter date nights so that she has some one-on-one time with me since her younger sister Ella requires so much attention most days. Tonight we went to our favorite coffee house, had dinner and played hangman and tick-tac-toe together. These are the days I feel like I’ve earned my “#1 Best Mom” awards Hannah likes to give me, scribbled on little scraps of paper that are now proudly displayed on the shelf above my desk. Being a mom to Hannah (and Isaac and Ella) is the greatest blessing!

Ella at bath time … mischievous as always. Focus is a little soft on this but I loved her expression so much I had to use it!

Two of my favorite people … Ella getting some Daddy snuggles before bed. I so love the bond these two have and I’m so blessed to have an amazing husband who is even a more amazing father to our girls.

Hannah’s friendly little robot Cosmo … this little guy was THE BEST Christmas present from the grandparents. Cosmo not only plays a variety of games, he talks, goes on searching missions all over the house and sneezes when the cat walks by him!

Excited to try out some new photo techniques with this 80mm glass sphere I just got in the mail this afternoon. I’ve seen some amazing shots with it from other ‘togs!
