    Hi Rebecca – what a great blog that you have! I always enjoy reading your posts. I would say that hands down my most favorite subject is our 18-month old son and capturing all of the ‘little’ moments that make me smile each day.

    I really like to take photos of our three children with their grandparents. Both sets of their grandparents live across the country and while Skype is great for keeping in touch, it’s not the same as being in the same room. One of my few opportunities this year starts tomorrow-can’t wait!
    Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.

  11. Michelle says

    Love taking pictures of my kids. I need to work on taking pictures of me with my kids. I’m always the one behind the camera, never in front…definately on my to-do list.

    OMG!!! I really want to win one of those darn silhouette cameos…but I really NEED your giveaway!! I am doing my first scrabook ever and have been so inspired by your blog — thank you! I have you on my feacebook and will now add you to my email. I’m trying to do a photo a day and i have the most beautiful subjects (two darling daughters and two handsome boys (dogs!) I couldn’t find my camera manual…so I printed the entire 200 pages and have been trying to read it, but it’s like a new language! I so want to take better photos!! Thank you!

    I am obsessed with taking photos of my 21 month old daughter. I’m sure she will either love me or hate me for that when she’s older ๐Ÿ˜‰ Shared your page on my FB wall!

  15. Laura says

    I’m sure it sounds trite…but faces not necessarily staring at me…just love to speculate about all that is said/written in a facial expression. Thanks ๐Ÿ˜‰

    honestly, I love to take pictures of people and groups of people…family, friends, etc….but I like to make them all hold something in the picture! Usually it is something random, whatever I can find that is just naturally around! At first, most think I am crazy…but when they see how cute the picture comes out and its not just everyone standing at attention with a smile on, they LOVE it too!
