A Day in the Life… | Mt. Airy Lifestyle Photographer

I love a good personal project to keep challenging myself creatively! Yesterday, I challenged myself to capture a typical Saturday for our family. I believe that there are beautiful moments happening in our lives every single day, and it is my overarching goal as a photographer to try to capture those moments with mindful intention and a spirit of thankfulness (yes, even when my two year old is too antsy to wait in the grocery store line so we have to sit on the bench outside and stay entertained till daddy comes out!).

So here is a day in my life (which just happens to be yesterday)…

8:30 AM: Dinosaur parade

DSisk Photography Colour Medley and Splendor Action Sets | Philadelphia Children’s Photographer

I have met some incredible contacts through the online photography community, and I love being able to support other photographers in their work! Yesterday I got to test out a brand new Action Set by DSisk Photography…it’s so brand new it hasn’t even hit her store yet! I really loved playing with these two sets, Colour Medley and Splendor. The Colour Medley set has some really fun effects, including a whole set of “light leaks” that give your photos an awesome sunflare or old school film effect. And her Splendor set is nice, clean, and classic, with some awesome matte effects to finish off your photo. Take a look at my edits on the same shot, below.

Letters to Our Sons, February 2013 | Philadelphia Family Photos

Dear Theo,
This month I want to write to you about our family. There are so many wonderful traits that I see both your daddy and I have passed on to you. You are playful and cuddly and a constant joker/performer just like your daddy. But more importantly, you are loyal and honest, just like him too. You have his same nurturing spirit and I am proud that you have such a wonderful role model to teach you how to cook, clean up around the house and care for others like he does. One day you’ll read this when you’re all grown up, and I may or may not have the same wonderful, glowing compliments to say about your dad (you know, depending on the day, and the status of the laundry and dishes). But I want you to know that despite our ups and downs, your daddy and I love each other very much, and I am so very proud of the precious traits and lessons he is passing on to you.

You are also a dreamer and a feeler, which means you are full of both a fantastic imagination as well as the occasional sense of overwhelming emotion and anxiety. You are so lovably quirky and full of big ideas, but sometimes the world is still just too big for you to swallow and so you continue to turn to your beloved pacifiers, “Old Bluey” and “Old Greeny” and your favorite lovey…my “squishy elbow”.  🙂  As a therapist’s son, you are the only two year old I know who is able to state “I feel a little bit nervous right now”, and even though I wish the world didn’t have to be such a stressful place for all of us some days, I am thankful that you are able to express your emotions so clearly at such a young age.

Every day I tell myself, “It can’t possibly get any more fun than this stage Theo is at right now!” and then every next day you go right ahead and prove me wrong!  🙂  I love seeing the world through your eyes, and I hope that I am doing it at least a little bit of justice from behind this camera lens!

Love,
Mommy

Each month, I join a small group of other talented photographer moms to write a letter to our sons. Please keep reading through this blog circle by visiting Abbotsford Lifestyle Photographer, Candice Victoria Photography.
