Fav Shoes

Day 2:  My Fav Shoes

Let me start off by saying, I have not been able to wear any fun and flirty shoes for almost 2 years. I literally had to go through my entire closet and find a pair that I would love to wear right now. Alas, with my ankles starting to expand and my white legs, that haven't seen the light of day since maybe 2002, let's just say this was another endeavor of a photo shoot. 

I envisioned a green background and to my delight our new neighborhood has a hill with nice green grass in the shade, and no I didn't wear those heals walking down the hill either.  It was a sight to see me squatting being all pregnant and trying to force these yummy heals on, on a hill.  Needless to say I don't think I clasped the same hole I had been clasping a few years ago.  But once I put them on I just grabbed my camera and tried not to think about my pig-size swollen ankles. :)

So here's the winning pic:

 But I also had to add the only pair I wear right now are these:

Thanks Heidi Jo for the flip flops, I live in them! :)

Exciting, tomorrow be on the lookout for hands...........

Self Portrait

Day 1:  Self Portrait

If you don't already know, I am almost 35 weeks pregnant and feel like I have been pregnant for almost 2 years. But what you don't know is that I not very fond of pictures of myself at the moment, because I am a bit exhausted and feel like a harbor seal. (This is meant to be sarcasm.)  

This shot was a little trying on me, but it's over....whew and here is the winner!

Now for a little back story, Maya woke up at 4:46am and so did I.  This shot was taken at about 2pm.  I was trying to shoot this while she was taking her 2nd nap but betweeen going down to the car to get the tripod and getting ready she woke up extremely early.  She was actually sitting at her high chair after I fed her some lunch and was watching me very curiously while I ran back and forth putting the camera on self timer.  This shot was almost the very last shot...number 41 of 42 total shot.

I like that it is not too in focus, it draws my attention to the belly bump.  Now off to bed at 7:48pm.  OHHHHH Shoes tomorrow!!

30 Day Photo Challenge

A 30 Day Photo Challenge!!

Okay it's been awhile, I know so much has transpired, we've moved to Port Hueneme, near the beach and yesterday I officially felt an intense yearning to be creative, hence the photography bug.

A 365 Day Photo Project has been aspiration of mine to try for ages, as a Mom I have thoughts that I will not realistically be able to shoot a picture everyday.

Hey I am 8 months pregnant and I have a 13 month old, would I be taking on too much?  Maybe there is also a possibility of me failing and not doing well.  Would I be able to I let it go if I don’t do one day?  Will I be a failure?  Why do we humans let fear run us?

Instead, I intend to start a 30 day photo project, and guess what, I started today!  Although the 30 Day Photo Fun (below) says June, I am going to do this in the next 30 days. Since February is Leap Year and the month ends on the 29th, my last day will officially be March 1st.  Just 8 short days away from our awaited son's due date. :)

So check back each day if you so desire to see just what my creative juices cook up!
