Momma in Focus: Fun

I can't begin to express just how glad I am that Casey came up with this weekly link-up; it's probably the main reason why there will be any photos of me and Sammy during our first year together.  That said, it's getting more and more difficult for me to come up with new and/or different ways to stage our photo every week.  I'm kind of at a disadvantage in that there's no one else around to capture the candid moments that take place, so I feel as though I keep having to reinvent the wheel every week or so.  The worst part is that I have all of these great ideas but they're pretty hard to execute on my own.  For example, I thought it would be pretty cool to get a shot of me and Sammy playing our new flying game:


Have you ever tried to balance your kid while simultaneously working your camera remote?  Yeah, it's not as easy as I thought it would be.  I swear he actually enjoys "flying" even though the expression on his face could easily make you think otherwise.  (And don't get me started on the focusing issue, sigh.)

So that brings us to take two; another one of our favorite fun activities is turning up the music on the big band channel and dancing to the tunes.  We bounce and and spin in time to the music while we both laugh hysterically. I figured this would be a good opportunity to capture some fun shots, so I set up the tripod, turned up the volume and started shooting.  Yeah.  The results were pretty much horrible.  This is the best one, which isn't even all that good:


Well, at least his outfit is fun, right? (Dear surly teenager Sammy, I apologize for taking you out in public dressed like this, but honestly, you didn't really seem to mind at the time.)  Be sure to check out the other lovely photos this week by clicking below--and don't forget to show Casey some love.

Any time I see a kid out and about dressed all colorfully it makes me smile, as did this picture. Such a fun mama.

I actually love the second shot - for real. So happy!

okay Laura, you get the award EVERY week for making me laugh with your humor in these posts. NO, I have never tried to juggle a child above me while also trying to take a picture. You might just be my photography hero! hahahaha. BE proud, very proud that you are accomplishing these shots on your own! It'll be a treat when your hubby is back home and can take pictures for you!! LOVE both of these;0.

These are so cute! Love both of them, but that first shot really captures his innocence and childhood excitement. My little guy LOVES to fly, too. :)

Very cute! You've got to smile at the outfit!

I love both of these pics - they are fun and his outfit is awesome!!! Maybe you could just take video and post some of the stills! Ha!

My hubby tries to help me, but some people just cannot take pics - half the time part of me isn't even in the frame, so I just take a ton with my remote & hope to get at least one good one!
