My little man hanging out at grammy claire’s house! He loved being in Louisiana…lots of outside time. The rain did not stop my NW kiddo from playing outside Check out some of the other challengers at I Heart Faces!
And for the remote shutter release! Always being behind the camera makes it difficult to capture time spent with your children. So I invested in a remote shutter release last fall. Best. Decision. Ever.
Though this picture was taken last year, it reminds me that I need to move myself in front of the camera sometimes and capture these precious moments with my children! (and to give up control of my camera to my husband, gasp!)
In honor of I Heart Faces challenge on Mother’s Day, here is my family props photo…taken with lots love, silliness, and good times
Go check out some other mamas and give them some love too!
For this Louisiana native, spring really didn’t mean much to me back home. Since living in the Northwest, it means everything. It means less snow, more sun, less inside time and more outside time. It means planting the garden, splashing in puddles, feeding the birds, finding worms, and mud cakes. It means renewal and recharging. To celebrate the changing of seasons, I offered to give away my “Connections” photograph to Facebook fans that could tell me what spring means to them. I got a handful of responses but meaningful nonetheless! Here are their comments:
From Cindy: the sound of birds in the morning and frogs at night.
From J Van: Gets me out of the house and into the world with my camera!
From Liz: I enjoy spring because I get to play more outside with my kids and just do more outdoor family activities.
From Heather: is a chance to start fresh, to believe that renewal can happen, no matter how dark the winter, which is why I love spring.
All very lovely responses! In fact, I heard a TON of frogs last night…spring peepers as they are called
So how do you choose a winner with all these lovely comments. You draw names! Or you have your almost 2-year-old do it…
