My daughter loves to help me in the kitchen, so this month for my lifestyle photography group I decided to capture her making cookies. I bought her a cute little apron a few months back and thought it would be fun to get some little retro and vintage kitchen gadgets for the shoot. I remember sifting flour for my mom with one of these same sifters! I wanted her to just have fun and make a big mess, which she most certainly did! She was all giggles the whole time!! By the time we were finished shooting she said “this was the funnest day of my life”! I guess I should let her do this more often! These are the moments and the memories we are going to look back on and cherish forever and ever.
I am really excited about 2012! All of the possibilities that lie ahead, the amazing people I will meet, adventures I will go on, photographs I will take, etc… It’s been a challenge being part of two very different photography groups. One of the groups is “lifestyle” and the other is more artistic and “fine art”. My style really isn’t either of those, well at least not to me. Maybe somewhere in the middle! This month I am just using a single image, one of my favorite B&W’s. I typically always choose color over B&W, but this image just called out for B&W. Something so moody about this photo that I love.

I was really struggling this month to know what to post for my lifestyle photography group. I hadn’t shot any material, so I dug into my archives and decided to finish editing photos from our trip to California last year! Oh we had so much fun!! The kids had fun at places like Disney Land, but their favorite activity was going to the beach! They had a blast making sand castles and riding on boogie boards! Can’t wait to get back and do it all again! These photos sure warm my heart and soul this time of year!
