Snow Day!

 We don’t get snow every year, so when we do, it’s pretty exciting!  This was our second snow of the year, and it was coming down in big fluffy flakes ALL DAY!

SO PRETTY!blog-mini-a-ture-joes-jeans-winter-jacket-1 blog-mini-a-ture-joes-jeans-winter-jacket-2 Finally captured her gap toothed smile!  She lost two of her bottom teeth last month, and is there anything cuter than a gap toothed smile??!  Not much…blog-mini-a-ture-joes-jeans-winter-jacket-3 blog-mini-a-ture-joes-jeans-winter-jacket-4blog-mini-a-ture-joes-jeans-winter-jacket-sorel-tofino-boots-1In my defense…It’s really hard to catch air when you are lifting your toddler up haha.blog-sorel-tofino-and-snow-countess-bootsAnd…here’s that adorable smile again!!blog-mini-a-ture-snow-jacket-1 blog-mini-a-ture-snow-jacket-2 blog-mini-a-ture-snow-jacket-3 This is the 3rd year in a row that she’s worn this jacket!!  It is SO well made!  I saw it at a thrift store for (I think) $15, and actually put it back as being too expensive.  As I was halfway home (the particular thrift store is about 30-45 min away from my house), I called my thrifting friend who lives right by the store and asked her to check if it was still there if she was going in there soon.  She did, and it was!  SO GLAD!!  It was a little big on her the first year, fit her perfectly last year, and perfectly still this year!  I may even see if it still fits next year hahaha.blog-mini-a-ture-snow-jacket-4Pure joy… 🙂blog-obermeyer-skiter-suit-sorel-snow-countess-boots-1 blog-obermeyer-skiter-suit-sorel-snow-countess-boots-2 blog-obermeyer-skiter-suit-sorel-snow-countess-boots-3A neighborhood dad helped them make this guy.  They were so proud!

Playing in the snow! Kind of… ;) + Tutorial of how we take our own pictures.

 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  😉Blog HM Hat Vintage Fishermans Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sorel Tofino Boots-1 Blog HM Hat Vintage Fishermans Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sorel Tofino Boots-2 Just imagine hearing, click, click, click, click, click haha.Blog HM Hat Vintage Fishermans Sweater DL1961 Emma Bloom Sorel Tofino Boots-3I 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!

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, a video of Maya doing it all by herself 🙂), another video here, and written out in more detail here.Blog Outtake-1Figuring 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!! 🙂 Blog Outtake-2And, after 22 seconds, I realized she needed to be cut off ha!
