Shutter-Bug Sunday: Favorites of the Week



Kayla and I have decided to go ahead and do Shutter-Bug Sunday every Sunday now! Since the decision was made after our last post we aren't going with a theme for this post. So just pick one or some of your favorite photos from the week and come link up.

This week the lovely girls over at A Beautiful Mess started a 30 day self portrait challenge to help promote their new book. (Which is now on my wish-list.) My favorite little sister with Lavender + Pink thought it would be fun for us to join in. I was a little hesitant at first because 30 days of self portraits seemed a little much, but I thought it would force me to be creative. So far it's been fun.

This one is by far my favorite of the week:
I took an insane amount before I was happy with this one and I couldn't have done it without my little assistant yelling "Just ONE more, Mama! One more!"


I also found a couple of great blog posts this week to help inspire:

Next Weeks Theme: UP Close and Personal 
All pictures should be taken in MACRO Mode!

I love how the shot turned out- it feels very retro, but (as usual) you look lovely. Well done!
