31 photos from August

This month I made an effort to take a photo every day. I have to admit I didn't start out that great, but as the month went on taking a photo became part of my day. I'm hoping to continue taking a photo everyday indefinitely. My plan is to concentrate on taking portraits, working harder to create proper lighting, and work on defining my "style".

I've learned with time the best way to accomplish any photography goal is to take as many photos a possible. Lets hope I can stick to it and in another 30 days I'll have 30 pictures to share.

I Heart the Color White

This week over at I Heart Faces the Challenge is all about the color white. As I was searching through my my photos for this weeks theme I realized that I do not utilize white space enough in my photos. I love how white space looks and I'm going to try to challenge myself to use it more.

Lucky for me both Shayne and her mom were wearing white the day of Shayne's photo shoot. I snapped this at the end Shayne's photo shoot and as you can see by the look on Shayne's face she was ready to be done. I thought it was such a real and touching moment between mother and daughter.

Make sure to head over to I Heart Faces and check out all the other wonderful photos this week!

Playing with my Nook

or as Piper calls it pie pad.

This might explain why my battery seems to die so fast.

Falls Park

Yesterday Josh had some paper work to fill out at the airport so I asked him if he could drop Piper and I off at Falls Park and then come meet up with us when he was done. I was planning on going for a nice walk with Piper but instead she wanted walk and have me follow her.

It was fun watching her walk up and down all the paths. She's getting to be quite independent.

I did somehow manage to drop my lens cap off the top of the tower. Luckily it bounced off the roof of the visitors center so it didn't brake when it hit the pavement below. Josh was also kind enough to go back down and find it for me. I can't believe it's still in one piece. I couldn't even find a chip on it.

Piper is Famous!!

Guess who is on page 2 of the Argus Leader (Sioux Fall's newspaper) today!?
If you guessed Piper than you are correct.

Man we can't even go to the park with out the paparazzi chasing her.

I heart my kitty

and so does Piper!

It's pet week over at I Heart Faces and of course I'm using a photo of my (actually my parents) cat Taco. I took this photo when Piper was just starting to stand up next to furniture. I would use Taco as a distraction. Now she's able to climb up onto furniture and Taco is no longer safe.

Practicing Being a Big Sister

I think she's almost ready.
We just have to teach her not to poke the baby in the eye.

Baby Brennan

You may remember baby Brennan and his family from his newborn shoot a few months back. He's getting bigger and is as cute as ever. He gave me the biggest smile when I showed up at their house and it made my whole day. I took all the photos right at Brennan's house and had a great time capturing all his expressions!
