I spy...

I've been wanting to branch out a bit with my photography. Come up with more interesting things to shoot. Just have my camera out more in general.

So, I found a challenge blog that is called "We spy-you spy" and it's just perfect for now. Just one challenge every Tuesday, which happens to be one of my less busy days.

Today's challenge: I spy something with a pattern.

I decided to photograph Sophie with one of her favorite blankets. We call it the "bug blanket" because of its ladybug pattern. I actually made it for Chloe when she was a baby, but she never really loved it...she loved the blanket Grammy Venturi made her, which is now completely trashed she loved it so much. But Sophie chose this bug blanket as her first love. She also has a pink one that was storebought that she really loves too, that isn't quite so big and easier to carry around. She has to have them both to go to sleep, though.

So, here's my entry into the I spy challenge:


And, just for fun, another one of the five pictures she let me take of her this morning:

  1. Cute. What was she looking at in the first picture? She has the look on her face that Zoie has when she's zoned on a show.

  10. She looks SO happy to be posing for you.
    Great pictures though -- one thing might be your white balance, it could very well be my monitor -- but just something to keep an eye on.

  12. Those pictures are beautiful! You have such an eye for pictures. Where did you learn to be such a great photographer? Is that your background or are you self taught? If self taught, any recommendations on where to begin? We have a Canon 30D, and my husband does a great job taking pictures, but I'd love to learn how to take better pictures myself.
