Oklahoma Child Photographer | P52 Week 1

I am a little late, but I'm finally starting a P52. P52 is a 52 week photo challenge, basically to take at least one personal image every week. Some Project 52's have weekly challenges or themes, but I'm just doing this for myself. 

I know for me, it's sometimes a challenge to pick up my camera to just create, or capture the everyday moments in my life. That's why I wanted to do the P52, to grow as an artist and not forget the little things, and daily happenings in my life.

I thought I would kick off this project, with my favorite subject; my son. He's my muse, my sometimes unwilling model, and my whole world. So how better than to capture him, but doing what he loves the most; playing video games. He has games on his phone (that isn't activated, because I cannot understand for the life of me why a 9 year old would need a phone), his tablet, and of course plenty of Playstation games as well. This kiddo is totally addicted to technology, and when he's not playing video games, he's watching Youtube videos of people playing video games.

If you're doing a Project 52, I'd love to hear from you! How's it going? Do you find it challenging to complete?

They Grow Up Too Fast.... | Oklahoma City Children's Photographer

My silly boy turned 9 last month, and honestly I wasn't ready for it. Every year I think, Where did the time go? He was just a chubby faced toddler yesterday. When I look at him now, he looks more and more like a young man, and less and less like the baby I remember. 

We took a trip to the eye doctor last week, after he failed his eye exam at school. As it turns out, he has perfect vision in one eye, and crappy vision in the other. He was crazy excited to get glasses, and we've been brainstorming a session idea for him to showcase his new look. Now, if you've read my other personal posts, you know my son isn't a huge fan of getting his picture taken. In fact, I often bribe him to go on photography walks with me. So him actively engaging in session planning has been really fun. I can't wait to put it all together and show him off.
