Day 30

Day 30: Self Portrait

WHEW! It's a mixture of sadness, pride, gratitude, and relief as I finish this last post of the 30 day challenge. It's been a big commitment and more work than I anticipated but as with most things...totally WORTH IT! I have to say thank you to each and every one of the participants, and a special thank you to Caroline for recruiting most of you. ;) Your talent and creativity has been such an inspiration. OK...I'm starting to sound like I'm giving an Oscar speech so I'll wrap it up and just say thank you so much for playing with me! I hope if/when I do this again you'll all join me for another round.

I love that the last post is a self portrait because I think for quite a few of us this is an area we are most afraid to venture in, and yet what stunning photographs! I love seeing the beautiful faces of these talented ladies (and man...thank you baby for being supportive!)

I took Elijah on a walk to the park for my shots this eve. I look a hot mess but at least I slapped on a lil make up for it. lol. I love that this neighborhood has so many parks close by. Great for kids and photographers alike.

On another note:

I came accross this blog post today and was once again blown away by this young man. He's so talented! And he put into words exactly how I feel about summer. Seems like I've been waiting for the warm weather to hit like a kid before Christmas morning and now that it's here I'm trying to cram in all of the summer fun and memory making I can before the chill of fall hits. Summer took so long to get here, I hope she stays a while.

Have a wonderful Holiday weekend everyone!
