{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!!!


Photo Challenge: {Focus} on Mom – February 2012

February 27, 2012

Since Monday isn’t quite over, yet. I decided to join Nicolette of Working on a Project for her {Focus} on Mom Photo Challenge again. It was interesting trying to find pics of myself to post instead of the usual kids and hubs pictures. There really aren’t that many. I couldn’t find one picture of myself from our latest getaway because there aren’t any!!!

Nicolette wants to make it easy for all of us moms to join so she kept the “rules” simple:

  1. You (Mom) must be in the photo.
  2. Link up one photo or as many as you like.
  3. Link back to this blog or grab our button from the sidebar.
  4. Try to visit a few of the others and leave some comment love on their sit
  5. If your tweet about this challenge please use hashtag #FocusOnMom and I’ll retweet your post or tag me on Facebook and I’ll share your post.

One of the most recent pictures of Hubby and I. I think, my son took this one. It came out pretty good. 🙂

Little One joining me on my "sick bed"... hanging with her mommy over the weekend. 🙂

My two contributions for the months of February. Hopefully, I’ll have some new ones for March it being my birth month and all. 🙂 We’ll see…
