35 Before 35 Update

Here we are, another month passed. I didn’t do too bad considering I was on bedrest for most of the month and had a baby, which coincidentally checks one of the list.

1. Crochet something else besides blankets or scarves at least once a year

  • I made a tie and beanie for George to do some pictures with. The beanie is bigger than his whole head, but the tie worked well!

The last one makes my heart giddy.

2. Do a photography challenge

  • My goal is to do at least one mini session with George each week for a year. I have done well so far! Granted it has only been two weeks, but you have to start somewhere. It will be fun to practice different techniques and props with him and not worry about messing it up for a client. I intend to try different angles, locations, lighting, equipment, or props each time to stretch what I can do with a camera. Also selfishly, this challenge will document the growth of the most adorable little boy.
