Lifestyle – Athenian Playground

Journey, Mess Maker J

Baby J is back again, this time in a classic lifestyle session, albiet in a glamorous location. I wanted to share this because this is the type of momtography we should all be working towards not because of quality but because of life.

We take our kids to the playgrounds so often that we forget how important it is to document their play. It doesn’t matter if the sun is super harsh (seriously could the shadows be any sharper?! No!), find a touch of shade or just embrace it because–the moment is more important. Remember that. The moment is paramount. You can create gorgeous portraits in perfect settings, sure, but you can’t capture these memories without embracing the imperfections of light and color casts.

So take pictures at the playground! Capture these moments, they don’t last forever!

Lifestyle – Looking through the Window

Mess Maker J

Tomorrow, my family and I are leaving for Athens, Greece! I’m so very excited to take some much needed time off and chill with J and my husband and of course to see Athens! With our move coming up we’re trying to see as much as we possibly can and Greece has been a must-see for me since I was a kid. This duty station has, hands down, has been a whirlwind of adventure and I’m so sad our adventures in Europe are coming to an end but I’m so thankful we’ve gotten to see things that some people only dream about.

That said, we’ll be a little slower the next few days but I promise to keep the updates coming when I can!

J got a sand table for Easter from his grandparents but J likes to eat sand so I filled it with Rice Krispies! He loves top lay with the rice krispies and his best friends like to clean it up as he goes.
