My Family, Documented

Thursday, January 18th, 2018

The list of things that have gone wrong in the first two weeks of January is laughably long. I broke a filling, the kids shatter my laptop, my power charger fried my battery, we had several snow days/delays, I forgot to take the kids to swim (and karate and cheer), and Linc finally potty trained but not without peeing on every pair of underpants he owned. We now own more underpants AND as of this morning he’s officially done with diapers. I also got my computer fixed, ordered a new battery, made it to all our activities, and scheduled a dentist appointment.

I’m feeling very accomplished despite the setbacks, especially since on top of regular momming¬†and housekeeping and cooking I’m also taking a photography class online. I’ve taken a few classes from Clickin Moms before and they’re always great, so when an ad for the class called The Documentary Approach crossed my Facebook feed, I saved the post. I kept going back to it and finally decided it would be a great way to keep me inspired during January.

So far we’ve focused on light (which is terrible in January) and this week is composition (which is something I thought I was good at but now I’m not so sure). It hasn’t been good for my confidence, but it has been good for my creativity. I am really, really looking forward to warmer weather so we can go outside and I can take pictures somewhere besides my house though. As much as I love documenting our life, I really like taking aesthetically beautiful photos in between so much reality.

Lake House Photos (But Not The Usual)

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

I’m taking a class with Clickin Moms right now, to work on my lifestyle photography. It’s only been a week but I love all the stuff I’ve learned so far – and the critique of my work really is priceless. Having a place where people tell me I’m NOT super good at taking pictures is amazing, since nothing but positive feedback doesn’t help me grow.

But not here. Here, please continue to tell me I’m amazing and talented and have the cutest kids in the world.

(Not true, please always feel free to tell me if there’s something you think I could work on. I appreciate it.)
