53: F- First day of school, yes I did them too.  I managed to get a backpack on each kid so I can have a picture of all three each year but this is the best I could get of them at 8am.a-prek


54: G- I’ve never tried to golf but I have it a go this weekend, turns out I’m horrible but at least I had a camera to do what I do!


55: H-My little helper who happens to be potty training so therefore just goes without pants.


56: I- These girls have a great imagination, the rocks were food that they were serving.  As you can see they are serious about their food.


57: This would be J but I didn’t do anything for it. Instead here is one of my littlest enjoying her first time in the sand, she just loved it in her hands.


58: K- Knife, my dad or Grandpa Lopez as he is called in our house is known to have a knife on hand at all times.


59: L- Lake Shelbyville is where we spent our weekend, how beautiful!

Haven’t posted in about a week and have done some serious slacking.  For some reason this was just not my week.  Nothing bad has happened, I just have had zero motivation.  That being said I have not done well with pictures.  I did get some new presets and have been playing around with them but haven’t taken my camera out much.  Bad I know.

I took some and have added them below.  To try and help bring back motivation I found a new photo idea list that goes through the alphabet.  I think this could be fun and help me think out of the box more.  I started today and will post today’s picture and hopefully tomorrows sometime tomorrow night!

I managed to get a picture for every day this week!  Woohoo GO me!  Now I will admit that I did not TAKE a picture everyday but used pictures that I took days ago as well.  I feel that not only is it important for me to take pictures but also to edit them.  So I used older pictures to edit them to get the practice at that too. I also didn’t take all of these with me DSLR, a few are from my Iphone.   Again not ideal but it is more about the practice of taking the pictures and editing them than using the camera itself. I do need the practice with my camera of course but this 365 day challenge is to become a better photographer and that is done by seeing something and taking a picture, learning the camera, and editing.  As long as I’m doing one of these things it is learning in my eyes!

29: Gather- every time we go on a walk my kids have to pick up every stick they find.  They have fun though so go for it kids!


30: Follow-  this one was done with my phone so bad quality but I still like the picture


31: Flower- Tried to take this at a different angle.  Really trying to branch our of my comfort zone and shoot other things besides people.


32: Most important meal-  not a great picture by any means, definitely need practice with food photography


33: Imagination- my favorite picture I took this week editing my favorite way!  Just love

24-26/365 Day Challenge

I did a little better this week.  I think splitting it up and posting every couple days helps a lot!  Here is what I took the last couple days.  Honestly I still didn’t get them all, day 27-28 are nonexistent 😦

24: Cruise- this guy was just cruising down the sidewalk, walking in the puddle.DSC_0987

25: Fresh – nothing better than a fresh cup of coffee in the morning


26: Imagination –  she was excited about this rock, and the background is pretty cool!  Oh she had her face painted like Hello Kitty

22-23/356 Day Challenge

After failing with my 365 Day Challenge these past couple weeks I have decided to start posting every couple days instead of once a week.  I’m hoping that this might help me keep up with my daily challenge better and it also gives more on my blog to look at!

I think I should be at around day 22 so we will start with that.

Day 22: First – I took a picture of my First born using all natural window light.


Day 23: Laughter- lots of laughter while jumping in mud puddles after the rain.

Photo Challenge Week 3

Ehh  I did bad this week.  I know I keep saying it but life gets busy.  One day I will take a bunch of pictures and the next I don’t touch my camera.  I know the point of this challenge is to pick up my camera daily but sometimes it just isn’t possible.

That being said, at least the few I did take I am really happy with.

The first day challenge was car followed by red.  I thought I would take a picture of my red car and see what I was able to get the next day, car or red.  Well I ended up taking the picture and just loving it as black and white so Car it was.  Unfortunately I never did red 😦
This car picture has become one of my favorite pictures, I just love it!


Here are some more I took this week. Enjoy!!

365 Photo Challenge: Week 2

This week I still didn’t get my daily picture but I did give it a better go.  I have been using a few different challenges and then picking what is the easiest picture for me to do.  Given that I stay home most days my options for picture opportunities is pretty limited.

This weeks pictures:
Clouds – taken with my phone actually
Rolls-  I chose baby rolls of course
