Project Life Week 34

I'm so excited! I actually FINISHED my 2012 Project Life last weekend. I stuck with it and got it done and I'm so proud of myself. I must say going back through it is a real treat. I get to see how much my boy has grown over his first year and it's all documented in one big book.

So now I am playing catch up with posting my layouts. Here is Week 34 using Becky Higgins Cobalt Kit

Technical vs. Emotional

One of my favorite photographers, who is a working mom like me, a great photographer, and an honest blogger, posted this story about technically perfect versus emotionally perfect photos. I completely agree with her philosophy and sometimes wish I had a better grasp of some of the technical aspects pf photography, but what speaks to me about my approach to taking photos (and I think what others have enjoyed as well) is the emotional aspects I can capture. I love catching those candid moments more than anything. After reading her post and going back through some of my photos, I definitely see the emotion jumping out at me in some of them... and not so much in others, of course. So here are a few of my recent favorites...

Four years and Counting

I am finally getting around to looking at some of this years photos, including our trip to the Pumpkin Patch in October. We try to get the same photo of my niece, Isabella, in the same spot every year. Putting them all together makes me realize how time flies!

Here's four years of Bella....

Project Life 2012 Week 32

And the final one I have scanned!  I have a few more weeks completed, but have yet to get them photographed and uploaded. I am sure that will be a project for AFTER our big move into the new house. I think I'll have a few others things to do lately that will keep me a little busy!

Ok, I know I have said a few times that some weeks are "one of my favorites," but this one truly is my all time favorite (so far... how do you like that for commitment!)  This is the week I got the pleasure of photographing Beth and Ryan's wedding in Tahoe and Jonathan and I got our first weekend away without David since he was born. Although I missed my little man quite a bit, it was so relaxing and fun and such a great experience, I can't help but smile but I see the photos from that week! 

WEEK 32:

I used the Karen Lewis Wellington Kit again!

WEEK 31:

I'm disappointed how this one photographed so I think I will have to retake it. But for now, I am lazy and want to get it posted or my ADD will kick if I try to skip a week. I just can't have that happening! So here are the bad photos... another one of my favorite layouts, using Karen Lewis' Moment in Time

Project Life Weeks 28 & 29

Only a few more left to post until I am caught up with what I have already done. Tomorrow I get to sit around the new house and wait for the new tile floors to be sealed so I am hoping to work on catching up on actually creating a few layouts. Meanwhile....

WEEK 28:

This one was created using Crisdam Designs The Story Begins Kit. I am amazed by all of the gorgeous designs out there that fit so well with PL. And there's more popping up every day. I swear this project is goign to bankrupt me before I ever tire of it!
