embrace the camera

I mentioned it on facebook, but I'm attempting a blog overhaul, and started messing with stuff before I should have.  So if the poor little blog looks like poo for a couple weeks I apologize.  Thanks :o)

Apparently I'm feeling a bit nostalgic about 'embrace the camera' lately.  Another one of my favorite sets of pictures can be found in this post.  Especially the first shot, with her crossed little feet.  It is just so her.  Anyway, I didn't set out with those photos in mind, but it was one of those days I was actually showered and dressed last week, so while we were waiting for lunch to cook in the oven we took some mirror shots.

And my absolute favorite of our little photo session...

I asked her for a smooch on the cheek.  Which she usually would never do.  And she did, and it was a good one, and my heart melted into a puddle right there on the floor.  So happy I caught it.



If you have kiddos I highly encourage you to embrace the camera, whether you blog or not.  If you aren't up for it once a week, aim for once a month.  And they don't have to be amazing perfect shots or whatever.  Mine never are.  But I am SO happy I can go back through over a years worth of photos of Ryann and I.  I hope she appreciates it someday too.

Hubby just surprised me on our anniversary on Monday with a new Rebel and I'm so excited to get the hang of it for when the babe arrives. I'd been wanting a "nice" camera to get some good shots of the baby so I hope to be embracing the camera very soon :) Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by my ETC post today. I have never given mirror shots a spin. Maybe I will give it a whirl this week. I adore the last smooch photo - so, so precious. We tossed around the name Ryann for our babes name as well :)

Beautiful pictures especially the last one. I haven't tried mirror shot yet and the fact we have a giant mirror in the house, shame on me. Maybe I could give it a try one of these days.

Thanks for the inspiration by the way. :)
