Baby D Newborn Session {Sneak Peek}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // baby girl newborn photo session - sleeping babyI am so totally smitten with this baby girl! Baby D is just as sweet as can be and I had such a wonderful time photographing her in all her newness! And I was happy as can be to get some of her loving family in the photos, too, especially her gorgeous mama!

I’ve known her stunning Mommy for about 5 years and was thrilled to have the opportunity to get some newborn photos of Baby D… Can you believe she’s baby #6?! She evened the score with 3 boys and 3 girls in this lovely family!

She’s a lucky little girl to come into such a loving family! I can’t wait to watch her grow!

Enveloped // Snack Attack {Photo Challenge}

After school, after ballet, after playing in the backyard, my girls are always looking for a snack! Luckily, they love fruit, it is nature’s candy after all! But good heavens those delectable little treats that they devour sure are expensive! But as long as they keep eating them, I’ll keep the fridge stocked!

My sweet photogra-friend Jeannie Thiessen did a phenomenal photo project last year – her Hand Project – capturing all kinds of beautiful and everyday goodness and photographing it in hands, mostly hers! I couldn’t help but feel I was channeling my inner Jeannie when I asked my baby girl to hold her bowl of blueberries so I could get this shot!

Sure, it might look like she’s offering to share her blueberries, but trust me, I was getting the stink eye at even the thought of diving in for a taste! And on a side note, it’s kinda funny to watch my girls as they envelop and protect their bowls of yumminess, reminiscent of Gollum protecting his precious ring 🙂

PS. Curious about photo editing? I rarely post a photo without giving it a little love in Lightroom. I shared a photo edit in the Capture Your 365 community today. I transformed a lovely night shot I captured of the Eiffel Tower, giving it a little more oomph and color…yes, in a night shot! Check it out HERE!

Letters // Sisters {Photo Challenge}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Handful of Sisterly Love, little girls wearing matching "Big Sis" and "Lil Sis" bracelets

My daughters, like any sisters, have their ups and downs. But even when one is bugging the other, or one is taking the other’s toys, or they’ve had a little too much of each other for the day, they’re still best friends and sisters, through thick and thin!

Originally, after reading the Daily Post weekly photo challenge: Letters photo prompt, I was about to dig in my archives for a photo (or a few) that fit, but then I spied my girls were wearing their matching bracelets. How could I pass up the opportunity to photograph those cute little girl hands playing in the backyard?!

Capturing everyday moments like this makes my heart happy. I can really feel it when I review my photos – whether I’m searching for a specific photo for a photo challenge, or a photo to scrapbook, or editing photos for a gift – anytime I make a quick scan of my Lightroom library or the walls of my home, my heart is happy! Do you take the time to photograph your everyday moments? Maybe turning those everyday moments into art? Being part of the community at Capture Your 365 has been instrumental as a reminder to photograph those everyday moments which can easily be overlooked or sometimes forgotten. Those truly are the moments that make life incredibly beautiful.

If you’re a photography and podcast junkie like I am, take a listen to Katrina and Kelly on the Capture Your 365 podcast. Always a great listen, and I have to admit, my jaw is still on the floor and I can’t take the silly grin off my face as Katrina mentioned me (yes, ME!) on the “Do You Think About Composition” CY365 episode 10!! Let me know what you think?!

As always, thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!

Live creatively!
