I’ve been so jealous of everyone’s snow pictures! We could easily drive about 45 minutes and see LOTS of it, but I’ve still been working Saturday and Sunday this whole month, so finding the time hasn’t happened yet. Imagine how excited we got when we looked outside on Sunday and saw SNOW FALLING!!! Sadly, it didn’t stick and you can barely see the flakes, but it was still pretty exciting 🙂
Fair warning…this blog post is a liiiiiittle bit longer than usual. The Huz bought me a wireless shutter release for Christmas last year. I’ll admit, I thought it was too big, and never took it out of the box/took the time to learn how to use it. Well, I finally took it out to take our most recent family pictures a few weeks ago, and I LOVE IT!!! I only wish I’d figured it out sooner. More behind the scenes and links for tutorials in the “keeping it real” at the end of the post!
To keep Maya interested, I gave it to her and had her take my pictures. She took 33 pictures in 22 seconds hahaha. She thought she was being sly by running down the sidewalk and turning her back to me 😉 Just imagine hearing, click, click, click, click, click haha.I grabbed it from her and got these. Just know that of all these I’m posting, there are about 4 times as many more that I wanted to post! Went back to the self timer to catch this one, because she asked to be thrown. But, she took these next 5 🙂 These are from when we first came outside. Pretzel bribe in hand. You’d think SNOW would have been reason enough to go outside, but sadly no… 😉 Trying to catch some snow in her mouth, but getting drops on her forehead instead! You can barely see the snowflakes, but I promise they looked bigger and more exciting in person 😉On me…

Here’s what the set up looks like, with my focusing stand, and enthusiastic assistant 😉 I’ve talked about the process in other posts. A detailed video at the end of this post

Figuring out what it does… 🙂 Oh, and btw…I had done a shoot in the morning and hadn’t taken a shower yet. Disregard the no make up and frizzy unwashed hair. Thank you hat!! 🙂
And, after 22 seconds, I realized she needed to be cut off ha!
