For almost two years now, I’ve been taking one photo a week of my girls!
Okay, so the exact count is 1 year and 8 months, but still. Having that many photos of my girls together is just awesome. They aren’t always the best quality photos and I can really see how some weeks I don’t do the best job playing photographer. I didn’t edit the entire first year of photos (something I REALLY regret). Sometimes the girls are in bad moods, some times they are mad that the grass is wet and they are wearing flip-flops, plus getting Emily to look and smile at the camera can STILL be a challenge. But 20 months later and we are still going strong.
Because the photos may not always be framers but the memories are forever. I love seeing Marissa with her goggle tan lines last summer and having shots of favorite outfits, missing teeth and new haircuts. The out takes don’t get deleted either. Sometimes those turn into my real favorites.
As a mama of two girls that are growing painfully quickly I want to capture every moment possible through the lens of my camera.
Here is a look at weeks 32-35
I feel fairly certain by the wet hair that we were running pretty late to church this week. Although I kind of love that you can see Marissa’s hair isn’t board straight. She definitely has some waves in there.
It seems like pink and black was the unplanned color scheme for this week. Emily is wearing one of her favorite Minnie Mouse dresses that Marissa and I picked out for her on her 4th birthday. I am glad we bought it a little big and she can still wear it.
Marissa looks like a bit of a hippy with her braids and floor length maxi skirt. Goodness I love that skirt. Emily’s hair was seriously on point this week too. I think I plopped it. Have you ever heard of plopping? When a straight-haired mom has a curly-haired kid you just learn SO much about how to take care of curly hair. I never had a clue it was so complicated. She does have the best curls ever though. I tell her that all the time knowing that some day, she’ll hate it.
You would never know it by looking at this photo but it was actually pouring rain while the sun was shining. On our drive to church we saw a huge rainbow too. It was the perfect start to our Sunday.
35 weeks done, 17 left to go!
Just for fun let’s take a look back to one of my favorite photos ever that was taken in August of 2015.
