52 Wednesdays :: Festive

I think this will be my last post in 2012!  Our project is almost completed with one week to go, but that will technically be in 2013…. so here goes–last post. =)

This is the least photographically documented holiday season I’ve gone through in at least 5 years, but there was something very liberating about that.  As much as I love taking pictures, it was nice to just be a mom and do things without the big black thing attached to my face… without the distraction of angles, compositions, and ISO settings vs. digital noise.  It was lovely just to enjoy this last week or so with my daughter and not even think about those things.  I think there is usually a desire for me to take pictures throughout our everyday life and to document her childhood, but this season it was nice to step back from that a bit and just be us.  To just bake cookies, to just wrap presents, and just enjoy a Christmas dinner without the bulky camera.  I did snap a few details last week so I’ll include them here.  Because decorating for Christmas and playing a holiday tune on the piano, these things are festive to me.

I am looking forward to seeing all the festivities through my fellow photographer friends, be sure to join me starting with Ms. Laurie Schultz from Cincinnati, Ohio.  Her post can be found here:  http://www.laurieschultz.blogspot.com/2012/12/project-52-wk-51.html

For those of you who celebrate, I truly hope you had a lovely holiday.  xo
