Can you believe my oldest turned 12 last weekend!! I am a mix of sad and excited about it. I have enjoyed watching him grow up, and I feel like the next few years are going to be a big deal for all of us. This year he will be in the "Youth Group" at our church. It seems like a big deal to me. We have been at the church for a little over 5 years and we have watched several kids join the youth and then go on to be college students. It goes by in a flash. Savor that baby drool and poopie diapers - okay maybe not those - because it goes by way too fast. I am not trying to be a big baby about it, but when I sit and think about it I get a little sad. But, I am just thankful I have Zayd'n and Sevyn, and I am going to do my best to capture as much of their life as I can.
Last week I started this breakout from Clickin Moms (clinkinmoms.com) called Light Seekers. It is only $50, and you get a giant PDF, several pullback videos, and all kinds of awesome stuff. My favorite part has been the Periscope sessions and screen shares with Liz LaBianca. She is a talented photographer in Texas, and I have been in awe of her work ever since I came across her Facebook page. Liz and four other incredible photographers took the time to put this breakout together, and I feel like it is going to change my photography forever. I am so grateful for it. Guys, if you are a photographer learning the light, this is a MUST HAVE. The last few days I have been playing around with light. I haven't done anything artistic or game changing, but I am trying to pay more attention to shadows and the way light hits the skin. Anyway....here is just a glimpse into our past week.
I hope that all of you are getting into the groove of back-to-school. It has been a wild week for us, but a good one.
