I am rarely the one in front of the camera as I am always the one behind the camera. I have been thinking about it more and more and was saddened by the fact that there are literally thousands of pictures of my babes, whether it’s by themselves, with their daddy, or with anyone else…but not very many of them with me. I read about a photographer’s challenge that a photographer here in San Diego was doing with her son called “Just Us Twelve Times”. You make sure to take a picture with your child, husband, dog, or whoever you want to be in the picture with you, once a month every month for a year. I missed out on January, but I am going to continue this challenge for the rest of the year with both of my babes because I think I deserve those memories. They deserve those memories. So here are my pictures from my first “Just Us” photo shoot with Gracie. We had so much fun!
I am desperately trying to play catch up with my blog. With a daycare to run, a household to run, a part-time job, school, and two Littles that keep me on the go, I am finding it hard to catch up as quickly as I would like:-)
Back in November, I had the pleasure of shooting some maternity pictures for my friend, Amber. Amber and I used to work together at a children’s clothing store called Naartjie Kids (where I still currently work part-time). She hadn’t worked at the store in a while and had emailed me to inquire about daycare for her baby that was due soon. What??? I didn’t even realize she was expecting!!! I guess it had been longer than I thought since the last time I had seen her! We got to emailing back and forth and I had explained that I was working on my photography, and that I would hopefully not have the daycare much more than a year. She asked if I would take some maternity and newborn shots for her, and of course, I was ecstatic! We went to Balboa Park for her maternity shots. The weather wasn’t so cooperative that day for lighting, but we still managed to get some good ones in:-)
