I’ve always loved watching my babies sleep, their little bodies curled in blankets, faces scrunched up in dreams. There is truly nothing more peaceful in the world. When Alice was a baby we used to read, “It’s Time to Sleep, My Love,” before bed. I’ve always loved this part… “And as you dream inside your sleep, the fishes crooning in the deep, and all the songbirds up above will sleep and dream of you, my love, of you, the one I love.” - Nancy Tillman
We loved getting to know you, Zachary and Alex! You are two very special little boys and Alice, Sofia and I will miss you. We wish you the best adventures in your new home. I hope you’ll look back fondly on your time in Miami, and that these photos will remind you of the sun and beach.
We had some fun at the Dolphin Mall today! Great locations are everywhere
Nothing says summer like water! It’s true, in Miami we are lucky to be able to use the pool pretty much year round, but we usually only go in the summer since my children now think 75 degrees is chillyI’ve seen a lot of underwater photography lately and I just love it! However, I don’t have underwater housing for my camera or my phone, so I decided to try something a little different. I bought a $9 disposable underwater film camera (this one) and headed to the pool to see what I could do with 27 exposures…
This was tricky! Not only was it difficult to take photos underwater, but it was difficult to keep myself in one spot while also trying to focus on a 3 1/2 year old and an 18 month old (Nana was along to help keep them safe). My kiddos don’t put their faces in the water yet, which is why I have so many photos of their little legs. I also had to be a lot more selective with my shots, since I only had 27 chances to make a good photo! I’m so glad I learned with digital, but I found the challenge of film really fun and it’s so pretty! Look at the lovely film grain and
If any of you are thinking of trying something new and fun with your photography this summer, I highly recommend underwater photography! It’s so fun and doesn’t have to be crazy expensive. Happy summer!
It’s mid-June! How is this summer passing so quickly? Good thing we pretty much have summer weather all year in Miami. Sorry my northern friends Still, I have a looooong list of goals for this summer and I need to get going if I’m ever going to accomplish half of them… the problem is that taking photo breaks with my kids is just so much more fun Here is a picture of what our life has looked like these past few weeks…
…and if you ever wonder why so many of my lifestyle photos are close up or outside, it’s because this child can make this kind of mess in under a minute. She’s very talented that way
