14 Days of Fall, A Photo Challenge

One of my favorite ways to document our life and the fun we have is with photos. And one of my favorite seasons is fall. So it only makes sense to combine those two things and do something special.

Once again I am teaming up with Stephanie for another Instagram mini photo challenge. Mini challenges feel more practical and realistic to accomplish. Committing to two weeks is SO much easier than committing to a whole month. And to those of you who struggle to complete challenges, I would recommend taking advantage of the IG drafts. Confession: Very few of my photos are taken on the same day they are posted. 

Starting October 1st we are inviting you to join us for 2 weeks of all things fall.

Here are the prompts!

14 Day of Summer Recap Post

The beginning of July was the beginning of another photo challenge. I’ve really enjoyed co-hosting photo challenges with Stephanie over the past several months. 14 Days of Summer was the 3rd one we’ve put together, so far, for 2017. After playing around with formats, we decided that the mini challenges are by far a favorite. Two weeks is a MUCH easier time commitment than an entire month and it seems to avoid people getting burnt out. So we put our brains together and came up with this.

 
This was by far my favorite photo challenge, ever. Maybe it is my love of summer, the prompts, or taking most of the photos with my new IPhone. Whatever it was, for the very first time in my photo challenge history, I was sad that it was over.

14 Days of Summer, A Photo Challenge

One of my favorite ways to document our life and the fun we have is with photos. Over the years I’ve learned that I either do a really great job with this, or a really bad one. When it comes to me and photography, there is just no in between.  I take #allthephotos or none.

Recently I started sharing Instagram stories. (Why did it take me so long to get on the IG story bus?!) (Are you following me on Instagram, if not come fix that, m’kay) (How long could I talk in parentheses before it got weird?) (What was I talking about anyways…) However, since I started sharing Instagram stories, my Instagram photos have become nearly non-existent 😳 . So in hopes of capturing a few frame worthy summer memories, and getting back on track with sharing those photos, how about a mini photo challenge?!

Spring Fling, A Springtime Photo Challenge

Springtime has officially began!

The trees are budding, the sun is shining and those warm rain showers have finally made their way to Southwest Missouri. Although parts of me find it hard to believe, I think winter really is officially over. 

With all things spring on the brain it is the perfect time to try my luck on hosting (and completing 😛 ) another photo challenge. Once again I am teaming up with Stephanie from Wife Mommy Me to bring you a ‘Spring Fling’ photo challenge. We tried to choose prompts that wouldn’t stink. You’ve all seen those challenges right?! We put our heads together and feel like we came up with a really great list.

14 Days of Love, A Photo Challenge Recap

First off I want to say a huge thank you to those of you who participated in this photo challenge. Whether it was all 14 days, some of them, or encouraging others to join, I really appreciate all of you and your support. I am also thrilled to say we had 739 photos use our hashtag as of the morning of February 15th! Not to bad for a photo challenge that was announced only 36 hours before it started. With one successful challenge under my belt, I really hope to host more photo challenges in 2017.

Since planning and executing photo prompts requires a lot of planning, creativity and work I thought it would be fun to recap and share my photos with you today. You may have already seen them over on Instagram, but you very likely may have missed some of them too.

14 Days Of Love, A February Photo Challenge

It’s the month of love!

Not only does today kick off the month of February, it also kicks off my very first Instagram photo challenge!

I am so excited y’all. I have toyed and toyed with the idea of hosting a challenge but have never taken the plunge. My biggest reason to not go for it has been a fear of failure. I mean, I have only completed 2 photo challenges in like 3 years since mom brain generally gets the best of me. It seems pretty obvious that I am totally unqualified to pull this off.

Or am I…
