Big Girl Camera: January in Photos

The baby's crazy hair. A rare still moment for the girl. A trip to sunny LA. Average days at home. Here is my month in photos.

January was full. It seems to take a good month to wind down from the breakneck clip in which we move during the holidays.

I’m using my new camera every chance I get and reminding myself that mastering this DSLR will take time and practice.

But even technically imperfect images are wonderful if they capture that flickering moment. The baby’s crazy hair. A rare moment when the girl stands still.

With two small kiddos, I don’t have time to wait until I master this camera...I just have to click, click, click...

The baby that began the month as a stranded sitter, is now crawling.

Big sister back in preschool meant we could take our sweet time playing on the floor in the good light.

I took a trip to LA to see Big Miracle and chat with the cast. The beach was right outside the hotel.

I love my family dearly, but a hotel room like this to yourself for two nights does not suck.

I’m working on self portraits...self portraits where half my face is obscured by my camera...yes, I’m a little fuzzy on the concept too.

The Santa Monica Pier at night. I only took 79 shots to get this one. I was waiting for my favorite rainbow color combo on the ferris wheel.

I returned home in snowstorm. The next day my backyard looked like this.

Her coat. My hat. The focus isn’t great, but it’s still one of my favorites.

I was working on dinner when I noticed this scene unfolding. Toys everywhere. She’s in a diaper box. He’s still a stranded sitter. The dog’s looking out the front window. Chaos...and one day I’ll miss it.
