I can’t believe it is the 10th of December already, and time for the final edition of 10 on 10 for 2012! I have to admit I’m pretty proud of myself that after starting in February I only missed one month, yep this is me patting myself on the back. lol
10 on 10 is 10 photographers, posting 10 images on the 10th of each month. This is a personal project that I’m starting with a group of 10 other photographers. We are all members of 4 the Love Focus, an on-line forum for professional women photographers. After you’re done here you can click the link below to go visit the next photographer in our little group-
Sadly for a lot of professional photographers, myself very much included, our own family photographers of the daily happenings in our lives are left not documented. For myself I found that the more I learned about my camera the less I’ve used it for images of everyday life. I’m constantly thinking about ISO, shutter speeds, light…. and not about capturing these precious moments in my children’s lives. That is why I’ve joined this 10 on 10 group. These images while not technically perfect are capturing my children and our lives.
This month has been another full month! One of the biggest events of the month was my Little Man turning 7! It is hard to believe that he is 7, in first grade, reading, and growing like a weed! One of his most favorite things is Legos, like most boys his age. Thanks to lots of pinterest inspiration I think we came up with some fun decorations, party games, and dessert. We used his lego plates as placemats, legos made the place card holders, the place cards are simply pictures that I added names to in photoshop and then printed out, on the cups I drew Lego faces. The tops of the cupcakes were decorated with lego candy that I made with these silicone molds. Riley made his number 7 all by himself was a great way for him to be involved. For the party games we played “Hide the Lego Man” a little lego guy that I cut out that the kids took turns hiding and then the others hunted for. Another favorite was “Pass the Lego”- think Hot Potato, and then “Drop the Lego”. For Drop the Lego the kids split into teams and took turns trying to drop a lego down into a bucket. It turned out to be a lot harder than it looks, but they had a blast. All in all I think it was one of Riley’s favorite parties and everyone had a ton of fun!
Now, that you’ve visited me I hope you’ll continue on through our circle and visit my friend, Melissa of Melissa Schuett Photography, a Milwaukee Photographer
