Confetti


The BEST investment money could buy. My kids thought I was the coolest mom ever!!!! Daddy was not present and probably would have not allowed this spontaneous even to occur. Who doesn't love confetti? I'm going back to Hobby Lobby and buying a million more just in case a random party breaks loose and I need an emergency supply of confetti. It could happen.

* The size and texture was perfect for easy cleanup and photographing. 


Don't be afraid to throw around happiness like confetti.

Sometimes...

I take my kids to the park at sunset just to practice "the shot". Sometimes I drag the stroller with chairs and props and snack for bribes, yes I admit. Sometimes one or both will comply with my "demands". Ellie come and sit on this stump, Ellie let's go an adventure…. Lucas don't kill yourself. Lucas you're going to break your face… Lucas GET DOWN… and then sometimes I take a nice long breath and take the shot regardless of my kids welfare. Sometimes.

Mount Scott

It's not easy an easy task trying to photograph a crazy fearless toddler and a curious four year old. I tried my best with out physically hurting myself and decided that I was probably better off taking just my phone the next time we made the trip. E was so surprised at the scenery from the top looking down on the Lawtonka. Lucas was ready to climb off the side of the mountain.... Luckily daddy kept him at arms length and no one was hurt "rock climbing". We definitely need to go back to the Medicine Park area soon!

Core Memories.

Take a moment to think of your fondest memories. Cherished moments with family past and present. Grab a pen and jot down some of those "core memories" ( I'm totally referencing a Disney movie). Now look at your list and circle how many you have photographic evidence of. One maybe two? For me it get's a bit personal. In 2014 my father passed away at the age of 50. I was given the task to find every single photo I could to represent his life. You would think this was an easy task for me given the fact that I sleep with my camera, but it was not. I was noticing that I rarely photographed him, why? Maybe because he was uncomfortable in front of the camera like most of us are. For whatever the reason I just didn't take his picture unless it was a family gathering sort of thing and I found myself searching for just one photo of him and his grandchildren. Even a phone picture would do. I searched endless and only found one photo of him and my daughter E at birth and zero of him and Luke. From that point on I vowed to make an effort to document the little moment too, because those will be the ones you hold on to.

Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?

A self timer, two little cookie monsters and one mom who just wants a Mother's Day photo. Here is the result.
