365 Project: Walking a fallen tree

After a relatively painless family photo shoot, using my tripod and self-timer, Nora finally was unleashed to climb logs, play, and explore. I shot this when she climbed up high on a fallen tree and she flashed me her sweet smile. Love…

365 Project – 234: My spectacle-trendy, soon-to-be second grader (August 22, 2013)

My daughter has been wanting to wear glasses, although she has eagle-eye vision, so she jumped on board with the latest trend to wear clear, non-prescription glasses. So, she grabbed the Harry Potter book she’s reading, I put some chopsticks in her hair, and she willingly modeled for this shot. I have to admit, I absolutely LOVE this look!

365 Project – 222: The color purple (August 10, 2013)

For years Nora has asked to paint her room purple. FINALLY, almost 8 years after we painted her nursery a newborn-neutral sage green, we’re giving her an accent wall coated in Wild Violet, which is the vibrant, bold hue she chose. We told her SOMETIME before school starts we’d paint her room, and today, while she’s away at a sleepover, we’re making quick work of this task so she’ll be surprised when she comes home tomorrow!  😀
