New SP

What's it called when it's not really a self-portrait but your 5-year-old shutterbug takes the shot? He still loves using the camera. We had it out because he effectively documented Lily's first haircut (at 5 months of age) since I had to hold her.
It's interesting to see myself through his eyes.

I miss this project and this blog and all of your projects and talking to you all!
I'm alive though. Kids. Family. House. Fairs. Parties. Playdates. Blogs.

Chasing my tail

All day. Every day.
I miss this blog and I miss this project.
In the past month or so, I've learned how to custom-code a blog for wordpress and taken on a ton of paying projects. I love it. But I'm not finishing one project before moving on to another which means I have like 7 or 8 things going at once. Chasing my tail.
I'm taking more pics this week.
I learned that picasa will do a slideshow with music and video.
I attempted a day in the life and now I want to try it again. It was fun and I learned a lot. I think I really enjoy a photojournalistic approach over portraits. But I think a lot of MWAC's say that.
I'm trying to learn about skin tones. It totally overwhelms me and bogs me down but I want to get it.
Here's snap from today:

The kids start a summer program on Tuesday and wow, who'd have thought that lunchboxes would be so exciting? I don't remember the last thing he got that he played with this much!

This little play area has such great light, I need to take more shots there!

Japanese Garden

Ooooh, fantastic location!
Too chilly today and my kids weren't feeling the camera but it's going to be a super location. I think it's used for wedding shots a lot:

Seems like I'm hitting the most harsh sun of the day and then struggling with exposure in the shade. Argh!

has kind of officially started for us since preschool is out. Found a park that will be fun to shoot at when the light is right:

Mother's Day

is totally overrated and I successfully kept my expectations low enough so as not to be disappointed. We had a nice day. Not wonderful or amazing or even great. Just nice which is better than disappointing or miserable.
Pictures in jammies and sweatpants are also better than strained smiles and stressful "cheese" pictures:
