Some of you have asked how I take my photos. The answer is simple. I use a tripod and remote control 97% of the time. There is however that 3% of the time where I get Andrew to do it. And this is how that goes…
I tell Andrew to stand where I intend to stand. Configure my settings so that it’s lit the way I want it to be, and frame it up the way I want the photo to look and take a picture to show him what to copy Then I make him notice where he and I are standing. We trade places, he looks at the photo I took and copies the exact same framing…most of the time.
But when I take that example photo to show him how I want the picture to look he usually does something ‘cool’ *as in, he thinks it’s cool* So I thought I’d share some of those pictures with you today.
You all know I love to juice. My juicer is probably the most used appliance in the kitchen…other than the kettle. So inspired by a conversation with a recent dinner guest, I decided to mix it up and make a fun bright green juice. Ingredients: parsley, cilantro, kale, cucumber, celery, spinach, lemon, and apples. *the secret is lots of lemon to cut the earthiness of the green leafy veggies*
Baby girl and I shared a cup of this in the backyard under the radiant sunshine.
It’s warm and sunny, so of course she just has to wear her mitts to go outside and wait for the bus. The clincher was also that she insisted on carrying her own bag, no matter what I did or how many times I offered. This of course, made me look like worst mother of the year to all the passengers and passersby. They all gave me the look that said, “I can’t believe you’re making her carry that big bag.” If they only knew. *sigh*
