Over the four day Thanksgiving weekend I got a chance to capture some pictures of Lake Superior in Ontonagon, Michigan. I think this may have been my first time being at the lake in the Winter! I can't believe I haven't been there during this time of year. It was a cold but peaceful day to snap some shots.
I've come to realize I need to start getting out to shoot more often. My skills are stagnant. Time to focus on this more! Between Life & trying to get more into my Mary Kay business I haven't been doing much with photography lately. I did the Kid's photo-shoot last month for MOMS Club, which went okay (still have to post those pictures). I really need to feel more comfortable in certain situations though. I hate when I feel unsure of myself. I booked a Baby Photo-Shoot for next weekend, which I am excited and nervous about! And I've sold a few prints lately. (Remember, if you're interested in anything you see, contact me to buy!)
On to the post.
I hate winter. Anyone that knows me knows this, but there is a few times I can see the beauty and sort of enjoy it. I snapped these shots at the in-laws over Thanksgiving. Seriously, I did not think it was going to stop snowing when we were there! I didn't quite get what I was going for but I think they turned out pretty neat. I like the black & white ones.
I wish I had some awesome Thanksgiving photos to share about all things that go along with the Holiday, but I do not. Unfortunately, I once again haven't been out shooting lately! I really just need to focus on taking more pictures during my everyday life.
I will share some things I am grateful for,
1. My husband.
For always loving me, even in my times of anger, jealousy, self-doubt, etc.
2. My boys.
I cannot thank God enough for allowing me to have 2 healthy, happy boys.
3. My family.
I do not know where I would be without them.
4. My friends.
Some of them are my biggest fans (you know who you are). 5. My neighbor.
I'm not much of a "I want to be buds with my neighbor" type of person, in fact I wanted a house way in the boonies so I didn't have to socialize with any neighbors :-p , BUT we have the best one we could ask for. She loves my boys like they're her own, babysits, and helps us out when we need it!
6. Self growth.
I may not be where I want to be in terms of me in everyday life but I am making progress. Last November I joined MOMS Club , AND even became secretary. Being in MOMS Club has helped immensely with getting by and getting out as a stay at home mom; good for me and the kids.
Last year I also joined Mary Kay as well. It encourages me to grow and dream! Through both I have met some pretty awesome people. And I may even be coming out of my shell a bit.
Last weekend we drove to the U.P. for my son's baptism, we left at 6:30 a.m. It was a very cold morning, frost was everywhere for hours. I quickly snapped this shot on a potty break on the side of the road. If I took all the pictures I wanted to along the way we wouldn't have got there till the next day!
