Some fun with legos
I really haven't been in the mood to blog lately. A big part of that has to do with the fact that I photographed Gina's visitation and funeral this past week and consequently have been looking at those photos every day. Painful stuff. I know her children will appreciate having these photos when they are older. So I'm going to do a few nice things with them that I know they will like. Still, my heart has been hurting a lot. And I'm having a hard time shaking the pain.
I actually took the photos I'm sharing today the day before Gina died. (Oh how I HATE saying that and referring to her in past tense, but that's another blog post.) Anyway, Caleb has discovered a new love- Legos! He had so much fun putting these together. It's also great therapy for him because he really has to use both hands to manipulate the pieces. He struggles with fine motor tasks because of his weak grip due to his brachial plexus injury. So this activity was not only fun, it was also therapeutic.
This one makes me smile. I love how I captured the air in his cheeks! lol
This week I start another photography class. This time I'm taking Push Past Your Comfort Zone offered by Lisa at The Long Road to China. I'm really excited about this because I know what things I like to shoot and how, but I don't want to keep myself in a box. This is really going to force me to make different choices, and in the end, will help me become a more well rounded photographer- one who knows what she likes but can confidently step out and shoot something out of the ordinary.
So this summer should continue with a lot of snapping around here as I stretch and grow myself as a photographer. And thankfully my kids no longer see their participation in this learning process as
torture a pain.
