Self Portraits- Mother's Day 2014

As usual all I wanted for Mother's Day was to get in the photo and have a cute pic of me and my three kids.

With a 5, 4, and 20 month old it was a tall order and one that did not work out in the end.  I handed off the camera to my hubby and despite his many efforts we couldn't get even one shot where they are all looking and smiling.  I'm not going to lie, I was frustrated and disappointed. But eventually, shortly there after,  I did get over it and realized we can always try another time, it doesn't have to be on Mother's Day. I ended up later on looking through the photo attempts and laughing hysterically at the mishap shots. Seriously it looked like we were trying really really hard to take a BAD picture! They could not get any worse.

This week there were a few photography forums I follow that had challenges/themes involving motherhood and self portraits. Every year or so I pull out the tripod and attempt some some self portraits with the kids.

So although these don't include any with me and all three kids in one shot, I know I will look back on these and really cherish them someday. And who knew some Starburst Jellybean bribery would elicit such cute smiles?!

Rainy Day Art Projects

I've been in a bit of a photography rut starting this past winter. I haven't felt the desire to bring out the camera as often as I used to and therefore haven't been shooting as much. I'm certain the awful we had didn't help much!

The other day it was cold and rainy so the kids did some fun painting projects. I positioned the table so it was near a large window and brought the camera out. Sometimes I think this is my favorite way of shooting. Lifestyle photography- capturing them in their moment! No "Look this way.","Smile for mommy.", "Just one more."

Here's a few of my favorites.
