Well, it's official.
I've hit the wall. The point in my Project 365 where I'm starting to look forward to the end and often not feeling very inspired at all. I'll push through, because I'm stubborn, and because the changing seasons always give a bit of fresh perspective. Still, I'll be happy to see the last day of December this year.
I haven't decided what personal project next year will bring. I do love the memories captured in daily shooting, but I'm ready for something new. Maybe something video related? Maybe a community action project?
In the meantime, somehow my calendar has flipped over to October and the trees are looking more and more bare. Night shifts are almost finished. I cannot wait to escape for a few hours, sans kids, to get some coffee and breathe in some crisp air without the usual five year old play-by-play.
Lately the moments I catch them playing quietly are fleeting. I'll see something I want to capture and by the time I get there, they've moved on, and I haven't had enough time to climb the couch to get a better angle.
Don't let that face fool you. She's playing "sad frog." You're supposed to toss her a pretend treat now.
Early morning snuggles for us, bedtime snuggles for him.
The ever watchful Hansen. I find him tucked away in his spot like this a lot, keeping an eye on what's going on. If he notices me looking at him he feels compelled to come and say hi, so I snap photos of him on the sly.
While I was helping change the car over to winter tires, they were out playing enthusiastic mechanics with the bike pump.
They can't just eat the pears. They have to play with them, smash them, and hold them in their mouths like smiles.
Every dress she tries on brings a request to "help me twirl!" I was hoping to capture her skirt from above but it's rather hard when she's latched onto my finger, twisting it sharply in directions it wasn't really made to bend.
Head on over to Jen McDonald Photography next! She has a gorgeous mountain photo you need to see, and I admit I thought that plane flying over the water was real!
