Big Girl Camera: March in Photos

March was a big photo month for Erin—she shot all of these in MANUAL.

March was a big photo month for me—I shot all of these in MANUAL.

I took Photo 101 from Nicole’s Classes last month (you can read the full review here) and I had an amazing experience.

All the photography books and blogs I have read say that it takes time and practice to learn to shoot in manual, and I still have a lot of practicing to do, but I captured some shots that I really love this month.

Chatting up Daddy in the backyard.

Afternoon snacking.

MP_4

After a nap. This boy is never without that blanket. I can’t find anything remotely similar. I’ve tried to convince him to love other blankets. No dice.

MP_3

There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING that this girl loves more than a good photobomb.

MP_5

If one photo could sum her up, this is it.

MP_6

Naptime. I think it is sweet that he sleeps like she did when she was a babe. Bum in the air. See the corner of the blanket that he’s sleeping on?

(I’ve been dying to get a good nap shot of him, but the presets on my camera couldn’t handle how dark the room was. Manual did the trick!)

In the time it took me to lay her brother down for a nap, she had snuggled up on the couch and fallen asleep. Not like her...at all. A few hours later, a trip to the InstaCare would tell us why—Strep Throat.

MP_8

Two kids on antibiotics (he had an ear infection) and trapped at home, leads to some creative play.

MP_9

And some pleading to go ride her bike.

MP_10

Finally everyone could go outside for a swing. She has a real knack for it.

MP_11

He loves the swing and cries when it is time to get out.

MP_13

It was finally time to tame his crazy hair a wee bit. I tried to cut it and gave him an EPIC mullet. My husband came home and immediately fixed it. He looks like such a little boy now.

Here’s hoping April is full of sunshine, more time outside, and maybe some first steps for that baby boy.

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.
