My annual book…and a reminder to print02.26.14

Over the past few weeks I have been going back through last year’s pictures for my in-laws Christmas gift (yep, it is feb:) and my own personal book.  I typically begin each year very organized and having gone through my personal pictures, selecting favourites but then busy season happens.  My personal images from August until the end of the year do not get a lot of attention…I do, however, continue to shoot a lot:).  So the last couple of weeks has been narrowing down from the latter part of the year.

The book has become one of my favourite things to do as it really is so fun to go back and see what the year looked like.  It is easy to get wrapped up in the day to day but to see that “snapshot” of the year come together is amazing!  I also realized when “flipping through” the virtual copy of what I was sending to print with the kids, that sometimes they don’t see what I have shot.  They had a blast looking through their year and reminiscing.  That was always one of my favourite things to do as a child so I love to see that they enjoy this as well.

So I am also using this as a reminder to print your pictures…if you have not already done so with me:).  Enjoy them, let your children enjoy them and see how much they are loved…as well as all of the little things that you love about them:).  I use Blurb for this book (and they have 30% off right now;).  It is best to upgrade the paper so that it can take a lot of flip throughs.  I print a couple of copies so each of my children have one.

Just a couple…will share a few when the books come in.

Procrastination or a break:)02.12.14

We will call this post a break rather than tax procrastination:).  I am getting very close to getting my financials done so we will call this a break.  Fun with the little one at the park on the weekend.  It is amazing to see how she is growing…her hands don’t have the baby chub anymore…she is stretching out…but she still has not lost any baby teeth:).

Shadows02.08.14

I am finally pulling pictures to put together my annual book for my family…I know almost a month and a half into the next year.  I came across this one of my daughter and loved the shadows in it.  Love that she is chatting, pushing her hair out of her face (because she will not let me do her hair) and I still remember the windy evening at her brother’s soccer practice.  Going through these images is one of my favourite things to do each year.  I am so glad that I take so many photos!  I hope you are too.  Will share more of my favourites from last year.

The good old days02.07.14

Some days feel so chaotic right now running from activity to activity…meditating squabbles…making sure everyone gets their amount of attention…  So happy to capture little moments like this to remind me that these are the “good old days” and they don’t last long.

their relationship02.03.14

I was playing around with motion pictures and a new lens this weekend…for as many minutes as I could get someone to play with me:).  At the end, I asked these two to sit together as I had not taken many pics of them together recently.  This is what I got…love that it shows both sides of their relationship.
