Summer Challenge – Day Fifty Two

I’m still frustrated with how yesterday’s picture went so today, I literally didn’t want to do anything.  I pushed it out of my brain and didn’t think about it all day, until five minutes ago.  I realized I had completely lost the desire to try today and I think that frustrated me more.  So with […]

Summer Challenge – Day Fifty One

Seriously, if there was a day not to do the challenge it was today.  I wanted to do images of my other two kids, old fashioned costumes and processing, like the Cowboy and Indian pictures, to print and frame in antique picture frames.  I found this dress from the 1950’s.  It reminds me of the […]

Summer Challenge – Day Fifty

The day was getting late.  I had no ideas.  I was tempted to skip today.  I have done 49 days in a row, what’s one day?  I couldn’t.  I am not good at following things through. I have awesome ideas. I start a LOT of projects.  I finish about 15% of the big projects I […]

Summer Challenge – Day Forty Nine

The days seem to be meshing together and sometimes I really have to think back and make sure I did something for the day.  This morning, as we do a couple times a week, we visited Smokem.  Watching him, back lit in the arena doors, I wanted to do a picture, but I actually wanted […]

Summer Challenge – Day Forty Eight

I am 48 days into this challenge.  Some days have been really tough to pull something out and I feel like it was half effort.  Other days I feel like I pulled out all of the stops and really created beautiful images.  I have ideas I still want to include in this challenge, stuff that […]

Summer Challenge – Day Forty Seven

Today was pack meeting.  My brothers were never big in scouts, but my husband and his brothers were.  I was also the Webelos leader for a long while and I LOVE scouts.  My son is about to turn nine, and we, sadly, struggled getting him to his meetings regularly until the past couple of months.  […]

Summer Challenge – Day Forty Six

I hate to sew.  My sister, however, is an awesome seamstress.  She sewed these dresses for my daughter and my nieces and wanted to do a dress up session while she was in town for a couple of days.  The littlest wanted nothing much to do with me very quickly, and we were a bit […]

Summer Challenge – Day Forty Five

It was a bad day.  The kind of day that leaves a mother counting the days until school starts again.  I love my children.  I do not love my children teasing each other and fighting and not listening when mother says “Stop that this instant!”  But the wise Bill Cosby reminds me that “all children […]

Summer Challenge – Day Forty Four

Today I promised my daughter she could be the subject of my portraits.  I decided I wanted to do something that reflected something she loves to do, and that is read.  This girl reads all of the time.  She loves to read.  She is allowed to stay up later than her brothers to read and […]

Summer Challenge – Day Fourty Three

I’ve decided to work my way through costumes and accessories I have gotten over the years, inspired to do shoots with and never followed through on them.  Today, I knew we were making the drive to Fairview, Utah, for the birthday party of little “E” from my recent blog post.  Fairview is about an hour […]
