{Focus} on Mom Photo Challenge: November 2012

November 15, 2012

My friend Nicolette at Working on a Project hosts a fun monthly link up where MOM gets to be the star of the show. Here is what she has to say:

Every month I challenge myself and you to get out from behind the camera and step out in front of it. I ask you to think about capturing the simple everyday moments that years from now you and your family will treasure most regardless of what you were wearing or what kind of camera you were using. The link is open all month, so you have plenty of time to get that pretty face of yours in front of the camera 😉

In a nutshell:

  1. No fancy camera or editing needed. 
  2. No prompt or topic, the only requirement is that you (Mom) be in the photo.  
  3. Link up as many posts as you like throughout the month.
  4. Not a blogger? Join us on Instragram or Facebook
  5. Need more details? Check out this post.

I have to say that this is truly a challenge for me since I much prefer to be behind the camera than in front. I’m glad that Nicolette hosts this link up and encourages us mom’s to get out from behind the camera and get in front of it with and for our children. I made an effort the past few weeks to have me in the photos so I could link up with her and show you me…

Here I am behind and in front of the lens. We were on our way own to Key Largo and I was snapping away when I caught my reflection in the rear view mirror. I love my new camera! 🙂

Here I am with my littlest girl at the park. I took the girls to the park so that they could run around on the playground and let of some energy. I took lots of pictures of them and was able to capture a beautiful sunset as well. Middle turned the tables on me and took these. I love my girls.

Here I am in a for real Humvee at the Wings over Homestead airshow. What a great day we had there… clear blue skies, aerial acrobats and our military might all on display. For the second pic I made hubby get in the shot with me. That’s another  challenge… getting pictures of us! (Hmm, another link up in the works, maybe!!!)

And this last one. I took it all by myself… a successful self portrait, I’d say. I have such a hard time with that… I had just finished coloring my hair and getting ready for dinner out and thought I’d give it a shot. Et voila…


So there you have it. Me in every shot. Now to get working on new ones for the December link up!

Please, take some time out of your day, take a picture with you in it and link up with Nicolette!!!

      Thanks. I do like to share our happy moments… those are the important ones to remember. Of course we all have our bad days but I don’t like to wallow in them.

    you are beautiful and luminous my dear!
    I tried to get my son to help me out with this too….. to get more mom in the pics. Lil brat kept taking pictures of my butt. Not what they meant by “more mom” I am fairly certain.
