I'm participating in what I think is a really smart weekly challenge hosted by Carin at Forever in Blue Jeans. It seems like mamas spend an awful lot of time behind the camera. The idea of this challenge is for mamas to get on the other side of the camera in at least one photo a week.
When my boys grow up they'll inherit hundreds of thousands of photos taken from their childhood, but how many of those will show their mama? At least for this year I can answer 52!
This photo was taken in the morning on the way out the door to take the boys to school.
This photo was taken shortly before dinner. The boys and I headed out the door for some fresh air and exercise.
Next week I think I'll have one of the kids take my photo. My husband isn't going to win any photography awards any time soon. (Sorry honey!)
Those are really great pics. I love the first photograph.ReplyDelete
Great pictures. Love the first one. And on the second one.... is that actual GREEN grass? =DReplyDelete
Glad to see you joined the challenge. Great first pictures! You are going to love all the pictures you capture after 52 weeks.ReplyDelete
I love yuor blog, it's so happy and colorful! What a beautiful family you guys are. Blessings.ReplyDelete
I'm following you!ReplyDelete
I'm glad you're doing this challenge or I wouldn't have found you! Love your blog and your boys are just adorable! I'm following you now.ReplyDelete
I love both pictures and your oldest's smile is just too sweet in the first pic!!
Exellent pictures, You have a beautiful smile and cute kiddo's.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh..you look sooooo cute! It's nice to "see" who is behind all these great posts!!!!ReplyDelete
I just started this today too!
this is so smart! My mom always took pictures of us when we were kids and she is missing from the albums, same way I am!ReplyDelete
So glad I found you via "52 week challenge". Love the first shot of you and the boys...joyful! m-bReplyDelete
Those were great. I think this is the first time I have ever seen what you look like. So glad you joined in the fun!ReplyDelete
Great idea!!! I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Even though I'm the fattest I've ever been in my life and feel DISGUSTING and hate to look at myself in pictures (or in the mirror for that matter).ReplyDelete
What a cool idea!! I was thinking earlier today that I have very few pictures of me with my kids.ReplyDelete
Love your photos! It's nice to "see" you now!
You are the cutest thing! That has to be the most wonderful challenge I've heard of. It's so true that we're most often stuck behind the cameras!ReplyDelete
I'm so happy to see what you look like!!! I think your husband did an awesome job! Shoot, I've got my 5 year old taking pictures of me sometimes.ReplyDelete
Denise told me to come by and say Hi! to the other half of the mommy bloggers!ReplyDelete
And I think this is an awesome challenge...I'm always the one behind the camera too. Besides you have a great smile so you should be showing it off more!
Hi, I grabbed your button yesterday and it got me thinking that I wanter one of my own. So I made the picture and the code, but I don't know how to put the scrolling code window under the button on my sidebar. Can you help me out, please?ReplyDelete
Those are great photos! That second one makes me want to take my kids outside. It is actually sunny here today!! I love this challenge!ReplyDelete
I think that this will be a fun meme & challenge! And trying to remember to actually hand off the camera...that will be half the battle! Great shots!ReplyDelete
What a fabulous idea!! You are so gorgeous!!!I hide behind the camera though cause I am kind of scary looking!!!ReplyDelete
This is a fabulous idea! I think I'll toss around the idea of jumping on that band wagon. It's so true, thousands upon thousands of photos of my boys, but rarely any of me. I'm liking this whole 52 weeks thing...ReplyDelete
