getting comfortable in front of the camera is really hard for me. i find so many reasons why today is not the day for a selfie. my hair isn't washed, i'm not wearing makeup... or... ok, those are pretty much the main reasons. but on monday evening i decided to forget those things & give it a go. i set the camera up on my dresser, gave the boys the remote & let the shutter fly. they had a blast pushing the button, watching the red light on my camera come on & hearing it click. who knew it even had a red light when it shoots? maybe that's just a remote thing but it was new to me. apparently being on the other side of the lens is educational, too.
hopefully this is the start of a year-long project. it'd be so fun to have a collection of images with my boys for every month at the end of the year. at some point i'll have to start getting creative with setting & poses though right? i mean how many squishy boy cheek kissy photos can i have? oh well. for this month it works.
so here's a few of the results of my first month of the getting in front of the camera project. here goes nothing!
