Life by lens is a project that I am participating in with a wonderful group of photographers where our goal each month is to document our everyday lives through our lens.
Get ready for some photos overload!! It was a good month for me!
I took part in a month long photography challenge and it really helped me work on my creativity. I had two subjects to pick from; both have different levels of uncooperativeness! But this little cutie won out in the end.
Al Lopez Park is one of our favorite parks to go to because they have so many fun and unique playground equipment. The kids always have a blast there. The only problem is that it’s so popular and there is always a big crowd, not the best environment for photos. Just need to time the shot to make it feel like it wasn’t so crowded.
One of our favorite spring time activities in Florida is to go strawberry picking. I always look forward to this time of year and the kids enjoy this so much! We’ve been to this particular farm in Seffner, Florida a couple of times already, I love seeing the rows and rows of strawberry plants and they always have an abundance of sweet strawberries to pick. It’s so hard to be in front of the camera when you are always the one behind it but the kids need to know that I actually do exist in pictures! Got my wonderful hubby to snap a few of me, he didn’t do so bad!
Easter time is usually a great opportunity to get some portraits of kids but I’ve pretty much given up on trying to get posed photos of them. We “staged” an Easter egg hunt in the backyard so I could get some photos of them collecting their eggs. We hid them over and over again and they loved every minute of it.
And look at these two photos we got! Opened one egg to find Hersheys Kisses in them and they had to give kisses to be able to eat it! And it worked! They really do love each other!
Join me next month for a little peek into our lives. But for now, enjoy the circle by clicking on the next photographer’s blog, Reena Giola Photography. You’ll be blown away by her work!
