san diego family photographer | what remembering looks like | may 2012

I’ve been lucky to have met so many incredibly talented and wonderful photographers during this journey.  People who share the same desire to capture their own families in a real and beautiful way.  I’m teaming up with twelve of these women on a very personal and meaningful project called, “What ________ Looks Like.”

Our goal is to capture our own families in a real and beautiful way.  Some people call it “lifestyle”, some call it “real life”, some call it “unposed”.  No matter what you call it, our desire is to snatch the moments that represent the relationships, the dynamics, the reality, the beauty, the truth, and the life of our families and record them here on our blogs as well as in print at the end of the project.

Each month we will each choose to fill in the blank with our word of choice.  Some of us may choose to use the same word all year and some may choose to change it up each month.  We will each link to the next photographer until our circle is complete.

We hope this project inspires you to take more pictures of your own families so that those unique moments that make your family unique will never be lost or forgotten.Wendy VonSosen.

Each of us will put our own spin on this project, making it more meaningful to us.  I wanted my monthly post to be in the form of a letter to Brooks.  When the year is complete, I hope to compile the monthly letters and images into a book.  My gift to him and to myself.  Here is our story of May 2012.

 Dear my little 7 1/2 year old ,
What remembering looks like … I want to freeze time and remember every little thing about you.  I want to remember how you love to hold my hand … at school, on errands, on walks … always.  Every time you reach for my hand, my heart melts just a bit.  I want to remember the way you blow me kisses when I need to ask your teacher a question.  I want to remember that you still love to give me kisses (even in front of your friends).  I want to remember your confidence and independence, which has grown so much this year.  I want to remember how important it is to you to make healthy choices, both at home and at school.  I want to remember that our favorite time of the day is bedtime conversations and snuggles.
Our month started out with the heartbreak of Grampy’s passing.  I’m forever thankful to Auntie for calling on Friday to let us know that we needed to come to Santa Barbara because Grampy wasn’t doing well.  We arrived in SB early Saturday, May 5 at MomMom’s house.  Just two days earlier, Grampy was placed in a care facility and we were planning on visiting him later that evening.  The whole family joined us for our favorite lunch out at the Habit and Backyard Bowl.  As always, you have so much fun spending time with your cousins.  I love watching you with them.
But then everything happened so fast.  Within just a few hours, Grampy was admitted into the ER.  I was able to spend his last hours in the hospital with Auntie, Uncle Mike, Uncle Phil and MomMom, holding his hand, praying, crying, and remembering so many wonderful things about him.  I gave Grampy lots of kisses and love from you since you didn’t have a chance to say goodbye.  Trust me, he knew how much you loved him.  We have so many ‘Grampy-isms’ that make us smile and laugh… and remember.

I want to remember that two towels are supposed to be hung here… but now there will only be one.

I want to remember you and Sky and your hysterical laughter listening to Uncle Phil snore.  I was around the corner listening to you tell Sky to come over and listen at the door and couldn’t help but smile.  🙂

I want to remember our morning dog walks … and the millions of roly poly bugs (iPhone snaps).

I had my camera at school for my class end of the year photo, and as I was passing through the village I couldn’t help but snap a few of you hard at working with your Eric Carle art project.  It turned out awesome.  We will for sure have to frame it!

I want to remember yet even more lego creations for your battles.  Every weekend … this is what you do.

Last weekend you mentioned that I don’t ever take any pictures of you anymore, so we walked down to the creek to explore and take a few images.  I can’t believe we didn’t go to the field all spring, so we missed out on all the gorgeous green and wild flowers.

I want to remember your laugh.  This just might be my favorite of the evening.  I LOVE your smile and your laugh.  When you are with friends or your class, your laugh can be heard above all the others.  It’s the best laugh that comes from deep down in your belly.  I always want to remember that.

And finally, I want to always remember your sweet heart.  This past year we have been writing letters back and forth to each other each week in your ‘write back book’.  Now you are loving using ‘notes’ on your iPod to write me little notes.  This is the one I got from you yesterday.  I plan on ordering a print of it and saving it forever.  That’s how much your sweet words mean to me.

I’m so proud of the little boy you are.  This is going to be the best summer ever!  Just 4 more days of first grade … I’m looking forward to spending them with you.

I love you to the moon and back.
xoxo

This is super and thank you for sharing.

san diego family photographer | just us twelve times | may 2012

How in the world can it be the end of May already?  We have started the countdown to summer … 8 more school days.  Fortunately these days will be filled with special trips, parties, movie parties, lots of laughs and a few tears.  It’s always hard to say goodbye to a class, but this year will be especially hard saying goodbye to Brooks’ first grade year.  Having his classroom connected to  mine with just a door has been priceless for me.  I’m so proud of the little first grader he has been.

Last night, Brooks and I walked down to the creek for our Just Us image for May.  We set up the camera on a crate and used the remote to take this.  Simple, but sweet.

After we took a few of just us, I handed the camera over to Brooks for him to take a few of me.  You see, I promised the lovely ladies in my group that I would share an image of my new haircut.

Earlier this month my dad passed away.  With generosity, friendship, and love, my friends in this group got together and paid for my haircut as a surprise to me … just to brighten my day.  I was blown away by their thoughtfulness!  Thank you!!!

So, here are two new images of me with the new do!  I don’t think I’ve ever had my picture taken all by myself (except for the yearly school picture … you know how those always look) and I think Brooks did a great job.  He knew just what he needed to do … place the focus point on my eye and shoot.  He looked so cute holding the (brand new) mark iii with the huge 85mm lens attached.  That’s a heavy combo and he handled it like a pro.

As an update to our organic, natural food lifestyle … we are still just as dedicated and going strong.  I was so happy to take our weekly trip to farmer’s market yesterday and see all the organic summer fruit and vegetables available.  Delish!!!  We also continue to make changes to our home to remove harmful toxins and chemicals.  This week I received my first order from Melaleuca.  Melaleuca is a company committed to developing products that are free of harmful toxins and chemicals.  As an introduction to the company, I ordered the ‘intro pack’.  My box was filled with all natural products for cleaning, laundry, and kitchen.  It also had health and beauty products that I can’t wait to use.  Brooks is already in love with the ‘access bars’ … seriously in love!  Please let me know if you want more information about this wonderful company!

We hope this project inspires you to take more pictures of your own families so that those unique moments that make your family unique will never be lost or forgotten.Wendy VonSosen.

Each of us will put our own spin on this project, making it more meaningful to us.  I wanted my monthly post to be in the form of a letter to Brooks.  When the year is complete, I hope to compile the monthly letters and images into a book.  My gift to him and to myself.  Here is our story of April 2012.

Dear Brooks,

Where does the time go?  As I write this, we only have 5 more weeks of school until summer vacation!  I know you are already counting down the days, yet I’m not ready to have you move on to second grade.  We will enjoy the last weeks of first grade!

Our Easter tradition is to spend the holiday with your cousins in Santa Barbara.  On Saturday, we spent a gorgeous morning walking the dogs on the hill (your happiest place on earth) then a quick trip to farmer’s market for strawberries and pumpkin pie.

Uncle Joey warmed up the pool for you two and you swam and swam and swam.  You and Sky have so much fun together.

When we stay at Auntie’s house, I always leave the iPad out for you to keep you entertained while everyone else sleeps in.  I came downstairs to this face … so sad when you deleted your  game account.  Some lessons hurt more than others.

You two waited so patiently for the Easter bunny to hide the eggs.  It seemed as if he would never come.  You even left carrots for him out front, but we think the dogs ate them.  😉

After baths, you and Sky were ready to open your Easter basket.  This year the Easter bunny left each of you beach gear … I loved it a bit more than you did … you were hoping for a little more candy.

I’m so thankful that we got these pictures with Grampy.  Not long after Easter, Grampy’s health took a big dive.  This past week he stopped eating except for a little apple sauce or an egg each day.  It’s hard to get his medicine when he won’t eat.  My mom and brother are no longer able to care for him.  They had to make the tough decision that he needs to move to an assisted care facility as soon as possible.  We will head to SB as soon as Grampy is moved.  I’ll pray that it is a manageable transition.

You and Sky were the first to discover the Easter Bunny finally made his way to our house.  This year there was a little twist to the hunt.  Each of you had 25 eggs to find with your initial on it.  When you found someone else’s egg, you had to silently leave it.  You were such great finders!!  It was so much fun to watch!

 

Here is a bit of our month on Instagram!  You finally lost your first tooth … at 7:30 at night.  You raced into my room, with blood all over your chin and the biggest smile on your face.  You told me … ‘I dug my nail under my tooth, heard a crack and yanked it out!’  I had a Tooth Fairy book that I had saved for over two years, waiting for that first tooth.  You also wrote the sweetest note to the TF!  Just 10 days later you repeated the whole thing and yanked out another tooth because you wanted something to share at school that day.

A bee sting gone wrong … huge infection and a 2 1/2 hour trip to the ER resulted in antibiotics and a splint.

I had to get a snap of your room after a long, tired weekend … your Sunday night meltdown meant LOTS of tissues thrown dramatically all over the floor.

I missed this post last month so I’ll sneak in the only two images I have from the month… Brooks’ Character Counts Student and his Fun Run.

So proud to call you my son,

Mommy

san diego child photographer | just us twelve times | april 2012

It’s been months since I’ve updated my blog!  Where has the time gone?!

I missed my ‘just us’ post last month and almost missed this one.  Yesterday morning we had two minutes to take a quick snap before we left for school.  I’m so glad we did.  It’s really not too hard to get something … just a commitment.  I’m thankful to my group for inspiring me to keep going with this project.  xoxo

One of my favorite things about this image is that it shows off the new gap in my little first grader’s smile.  He was thrilled to finally lose his first tooth earlier in the month and then the second just a week later.  I also love his new summer hair cut!  He was very clear with the hairdresser that he wanted tiny spikes.  It’s hysterical watching him do his hair in the morning … just the right amount of gel … applied just so.

Here’s another in color … totally my ‘mini me’.  😉

I’m finally breaking out my new 5D Mark III … these were shot at 6400 without any noiseware.  I LOVE how it handles high ISO and white balance!

Please continue the circle with the very talented Melissa Deakin | Buffalo, NY Family & Child.
