Upcoming themes - looking for your input

I have truly enjoyed setting up this Blog and receiving each and every photo. Truly. I wasn't looking for another project to do but felt the push to pursue this for whatever reason. That reason? I still don't know. 

I do know that I love to see your photos and read the messages that are attached to them. Thank you for sharing. 

I would love to hear your thoughts on upcoming themes to possibly consider. What would be a fun theme to share photos of? What do we need to share photos of?  What is a topic you would like to see photos of? 

Please post your thoughts or email them to me directly! 
thanks so much! 

motherhood photos coming up in a few days! Submit yours if you haven't already.

Project Life.....

Appreciate the past. Make of the most of the present. Live for the future.

Cultivate a good life and record it.

She's a girl after my own heart - capturing the everyday, the moments, the un-posed shots....real life.

Announcing Mays Theme - Mother

With Mother's day coming up it should be easy to capture YOU as a mother. Yup, I said you. And because we are usually behind the camera, I am "challenging" you to step in front of it and capture yourself.

 You could be with your children or without. You could be captured in a "real mommy" moment or poised and perfect as June Cleaver or with YOUR own mother.

Just capture what motherhood looks like for you right now, or share how it looked at one time. Motherhood is a special privilege and a daily gift. Let's celebrate that together.

Start sending in your photos TODAY! I can't wait to see them. Please see the submission guidelines if you have any questions

April's theme - ME

Declare it - "I am ME!" What is it that you love about yourself? Yes it's ok to love yourself. You'd better, because you are with yourself 24 hours a day. 

Do you love your eyes, your freckles, your wiry hair? Do you love your hands, your build, your nose, your coloring? Do you love the way your accessorize or dress? Are you bold, shy, loud, brave, happy, quiet?

(photo courtesy of Meet Virginia Design)

Embrace what makes you, YOU. Let's build each other up as women. I would love to have the "younger" generation participate this month as well. Allow your daughter(s) to express or find out what they love about themselves. Build their self confidence and self image as they "declare it" too. 

Capture and share one of those things this month. It's great to be YOU, now share it...
