Upstairs Cameras

Standard

This weekend we were getting over colds and trying to clock as many hours of rest as possible in – what with an upcoming family wedding, out of town family visitors coming soon, and two little ones under the age of 3 and a half, trying to keep things routine and normal before they get full of hustle and bustle, reunions with family members can be tricky.

I have a long to-do list one which involves molding stubborn frozen meat into kababs and adding the correct ratio of spices. Ironing wedding clothes, organizing and matching bangles for three  up to sparkly Pakistani outfits or shalwar kameezes. Trying to do that while one naps and the other plays, while trying to keep Z in good spirits (sick children can get so cranky), is also tricky!

At a recent family photoshoot I did, we got a few good images before Atlanta storms poured in, literally. We hurriedly scooped up two little ones and I followed the family into their house to see what other images I could get. The mother of the two decided to give her two little ones a super bubbly bath and I perched on the tub and took some fun photos of bubbles, soapy fingers, and foamy smiles! So much fun!

I sometimes can get stuck in the rut of leaving my camera downstairs and it doesn’t see upstairs much- my iPhone camera does, but the fancy one gets used up for photoshoots, or the kitchen where my huge windows are light friendly, which means images that are clear, pop, and require little or no editing.

Trying to shake things up and inspired from the recent bath tub photoshoot, I left my camera upstairs just so I can be challenged/inspired to use my camera upstairs too.

A few images below – IMG_9782 IMG_9783-3 IMG_9819-2

Will try more upstairs photos. I miss the natural lighting from downstairs, but it’s good to change things up!

About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
