Seems like WW is the only time I can get anything posted though I have several posts in the works. The hard part is the photos. Over the past two years I feel like I’ve really grown as a photographer thanks to my beautiful subjects and upgrade in equipment. But that means that I want to put beautiful pictures in every single post. Which is really damn time consuming.
So I feel like something needs to give a bit.
The writing needs to be able to flow without needing photos to back it up. I want to get back to telling stories, relateable moments of life as a SAHM of precocious little girls. I want to capture the way the moment felt and sounded and smelled, not just what it looked like.
So I’m going to try to bumrush y’all with photos on Wednesdays per usual, and (briefly) write my little heart out two or three more days a week.
That’s the other thing. I’m gonna start giving myself a word count max as an exercise and see what happens.
All that being said…
One morning a couple weeks ago I woke up to the most amazing white light flowing through our bedroom windows (our bedroom is three walls full of windows…I call it The Treehouse cause that’s what it feels like in there). I had really wanted to do a newborn photo shoot with Nugget, but alas I didn’t set it up in time and really didn’t want to spend $300+ dollars on it.
So I pulled up trusty old Pinterest, printed my favorite images as inspiration, studied up on some of the tips that photographers have given, gathered my supplies and set out to shoot my nudie baby.
She was cooperative for about 20 minutes. And didn’t sleep at all (unlike the precious Anne-Geddes-esque pics that are so pervasive these days).
But what I captured is just so Zorie. Wide eyed, but mellow. Strong, yet cuddly. Soft and furry and chubby and delicious.
Here’s my New Girl in all her glory…
Happy Wordless/Wordful/Wonderful Wednesday to all from me and my Nugget!
