“A portrait of each of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.”


Rosen: We frequent this playground on Sundays after lunch, but we haven’t been in a while because it’s been too rainy or cold. This Sunday we had some nice sunny weather, so back to the playground we went. I haven’t taken a ton of photos this month, so I brought my good camera with me. Rosen was more than ready to pose for me!


Saxon: I love that he can climb and play on the playground more now that he’s a steadier walker. Makes it easier to take photos of him in action!

Project Life 2015 – Week 1

I finally got started on my 2015 Project Life book. I’ve only completed the first week so far, but it’s a start. It helped that the first week was only 3 days long, so it was a pretty easy one to complete.

Here is my scrapbook page for Week 1 of Project Life:


Supplies used: Blank Slate kit by Kristin Cronin-Barrow.

Rosen: Over the weekend we finally had some sunny and slightly warmer weather, so a trip to the playground was a must. I think Rosen had really been missing the outdoors!


Saxon: He is crazy about the swings. He wanted to be pushed for the entire time we were at the park (about 30 minutes). Every time I tried to take him out, he cried. That’s totally opposite from Rosen, who still will not stay in a swing for more than a minute or two.

Rosen: Whenever she sees me try to take photos of Saxon, she decides that she wants to be photographed. Jealously leads to the best smiles ;-) .


Saxon: Trying to put my lens cap on. I think he’s already figured out how to make me stop taking photos.

DSLR Video Project 2014 – December

In case you haven’t been following along, I’ve been challenging myself this year to make monthly family videos from video clips I’ve taken using my DSLR. This video wraps up my 2014 project! I’ve really enjoyed making these monthly videos, so I’m going to continue on into 2015.

If you missed my previous videos, you can watch them here: January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, and November.

We had so much going on in December, so this video is loaded with lots of birthdays, family get-togethers, and Christmas festivities. Seems appropriate to end the year with such a fun-filled video.

Fall Photo Shoot 2014

Back in November, we had a family photo shoot with Godwink Art Photography. I kept the photos under wraps until our Christmas cards went out, and if you’re friends with me on Facebook, you’ve probably already seen them. I realized I never shared them here, so time to change that! I also want to use them to update my “about me” stuff on my blog, so you’ll see that change soon.

Anyways, I am so pleased with how they turned out. The photos were taken at 8:30 in the morning when it was 28 degrees out, so it wasn’t the best weather for photos, but the kids did great. I had them wearing 3 shirts and 2 pairs of pants so we wouldn’t have to mess with jackets, and we wrapped up in blankets in between shots, so it worked out pretty well.

It’s always an extra special treat to have photos that I can be in, when I’m usually the one behind the camera. It’s not very often that we get photos of us all together, so that made these even more special. Now I need to get around to ordering prints and getting them framed and up on our walls!

Pink Pig 2014

I hate that I never got around to sharing these photos back in December. The Pink Pig has become a fun holiday outing in our family. It’s an Atlanta tradition dating back over 50 years, but we rode it for the first time last year. Rosen fell in love with this adorable pink train ride, and was so excited to ride it again this year.

This was Saxon’s first ride on the Pink Pig, and although he was very tired, he seemed to really enjoy it as well. We went on a weeknight, which worked out well because we had the usually busy ride all to ourselves.

Looking back at these photos makes me sad that the holiday season is over, but I’m already looking forward to next year!















Project Life 2014 – Week 51

I’m still trying to finish up my 2014 PL book. I fell a little behind during all the December chaos, but I’ve only got one week to go! Week 52 is going to be a double-page spread though. There’s no way I can fit Christmas and the remainder of the year on one page!

Here is my scrapbook page for Week 51 of Project Life:
