Hi and Happy New Year!! We're starting fresh this year with our blog circle. There are some new incredibly talented photographers joining our group and I'm beyond excited to follow their work! December was a pretty great month for us, as we got to celebrate the little dude's first Christmas. He stayed awake to "open" all of his presents and I'm pretty sure mom and dad were more excited about them than he was. Please scroll all the way to the bottom to continue around our blog circle!

P52 Favorites

I'm so happy to have completed another Project 52 over at clickinmoms.com. Each week I was challenged creatively and produced some of my favorite images yet! I hit a bit of a lull in the spring when my first trimester was getting me down, but like to think I rebounded after Joel was born with some pretty cute pictures of him! Here are some of my favorites from this year! Link to the full gallery is at the top of the screen.

The air turned cooler this month (for a very brief time) but that made me start enjoying the change of seasons and experimenting with more light inside. Enjoy! Please scroll all the way to the end to continue around our blog circle.

This month found me doing a lot of experimenting with my new lens: the Lensbaby Velvet 56. I am in love with it! It creates beautiful work from longer distances and has the versatility to be a macro lens as well (perfect for baby toes and fingers). ;) Please scroll to the bottom to continue around our blog circle!
