Life by Lens: a personal project

Life has been busy (is it ever not?). Since the start of 2013, my focus has been to (1) try to keep up with the everyday activities of three little girls and (2) work on becoming a healthier version of me (eating better and moving more). Those two tasks alone seem to fill up my every waking hour. The ‘free time’ that I found last year for photography has disappeared.

My hiatus from my big camera has made me realize that I miss capturing life with it. I still manage to take pictures with my on-me-all-the-time camera (iPhone), but that is not the same as being able to control the shots with my big camera. So, with that said, I am slowly making an effort to get back into photography on a personal level with the help of the Life by Lens* project.

My share for LbL this month is a single image taken last weekend just inside the church stoop before my brother-in-law’s wedding in New Orleans. Our girls were super excited to be flower girls. They did a great job during the ceremony (smiles, no tears, cooperation = success!). With their flower crowns and white dresses, I thought they looked like angelic princesses. I am pretty sure they felt like them too, if you couldn’t tell by the way they posed themselves.

*Life by Lens is a project I am participating in with a great group of photographers who I met on a photography web forum. Our goal each month is to document what is important to us — big or small. Our Life by Lens submissions will be published on the 20th of each month.
