52 Week Photo Project - Week 37: Hobbies

With school back in session and extracurricular activities in full swing I have been doing a lot of this. . . (see image to the right). Monday - Thursday at least one of my kids have an extracurricular activity, then add carpool to school, preschool and church activities and I feel like I am living in my car. I know everyone else is going through the same thing but it is my turn to complain! Thank goodness for my ipad mini that is always stocked with a good book to read and candy crush. So my hobby right now is driving! :)

Share your link to your hobbies below. Next week's theme is "Pets."

Individual Pictures {Utah Children Photographer}

I had the opportunity to take pictures of these cute girls last month. We are planning on taking their family pictures later this month.  It is always fun to try and capture genuine smiles and keep the attention of a 1 year old and a 4 year old. So here is a thought. If you want family and individual pictures consider doing two separate sessions. That way you won't wear out their smiles during one long session. The sessions could be on the same day with a good nap in between or on different days. Either way you want the session to be fun and positive. Here are a few more favorites from this session.

52 Week Photo Project - Week 36: Back to School!

This week's theme is "Back to School!"  I have all four kids in four different schools this year. Brock is over at the middles school, Mikele and Kassie are at different elementary schools and Allie is in preschool. It makes for a busy taxi driving week especially after you add extra curricular activities to the mix!! Oh well what do you do. I included myself in these pics because I have decided that I too need a back to school outfit! Don't you agree?

So I am excited to see your back to school pics! Post the link below.

Next week's theme is "Hobbies." This could be your hobby or one of your kids extra curricular activities.
