It’s that time again. 11 pictures, 11th day of the month. Every month I have the same problem. It is NOT trying to scrounge together photos of my kids so I can get to 11. No, it is the fact that I love to shoot and I can’t seem to stop myself, ESPECIALLY when Spring has Sprung and I finally have something besides brown as a backdrop. Spring in Michigan is ….well…. fleeting, to put it nicely.
To deal with my little “problem,” I’ve decided, for the next five months, to dedicate the blog post to one of my children at a time. This month it’s the fabulous Amelia, my youngest. Even with one person, I have to “cheat” and count a few diptychs as “one.” But she’s well trained, and is mostly always available for pictures, so… And hey, the ice cream bribes are cheaper when you can buy mini portions.
In order to have a couple more girls join us, we’re posting these on the 13th this month….so of course, I want to have 13 pictures! 🙂
Dancing like no one is watching.
an iron bed, just her size.
Showing her personality.
Stopping to smell the flowers.
enjoying one of the first warm nights.
Spring, and Pink.
among the daffodils.
feeling shy in so many colors.
Feeling wistful. Or sick of pictures. You decide. 🙂
AND. The obligatory self portrait. To be fair, I set the camera settings and my daughter took these of me when we had “down time” at a special shoot I was doing. Am I cool or what??
Ok, now you MUST MUST go and see the next person up in this 11-on-11 edition, the amazing Tonya Teran of Tonya Teran Photography. now! go! 🙂
