{Getting in the Picture}

Thursday, April 9, 2009

Have you heard about 52 Weeks?

Besides being the number of weeks in a year, in Blogland, it's a year long challenge for Moms to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. We're always the ones behind the camera. And Carin from Forever in Blue Jeans is challenging moms to get out from behind the camera and get in the photos WITH our family.

Jump into the challenge whenever you can, and visit Carin's blog every Thursdays for a Mr. Linky party!

And since Carey's has been doing it, and Amanda's been doing a year-long photo challenge, I'm jumping in this week:



and to show I'm not playing faves...here's one of Baby from the same day...


How do you capture everyday moments for the sake of making memories?

Just call me Mrs. Doesn't Follow Through. :(
Maybe I'll write a note on the fridge and try THIS challenge. I lost interest in the other one cause I really want a new camera...
I love your pics and it's nice to see you from the neck up! :o)

heheheh, my facebook picture was the same FOREVER until I finally took one of myself at arm's length.

One of the college girls at our church gave me a tip. She said to take the picture in front of a mirror. Point the camera at yourself but look into the mirror to see the display screen so you can see if you are actually in the shot.
