Simple things Sunday 99

A certain little girl in our family has been waiting for what seems like her life whole life for it to be her turn to go to ballet! Well,  her year has finally come and I couldn’t be more excited for her!! She started her very first ballet class last week and she LOVES it!  
Photoshop actions I used on this photo:

Now it’s your turn…what simple thing did you celebrate this week?

Simple things Sunday is about taking time to photograph the everyday details that make your life unique, beautiful, and special. Each Sunday we gather here to share our photos with each other. To enjoy the beauty that can be found in the ordinary and to be reminded of just how important the simple things are. 

If you’re new to Simple as That I’d love for you join us in this weekly tradition. Scroll down to the bottom of this post where you can find all the details on how to share your photos with us. I look forward to featuring some of your photos later in the week on the Simple as That Facebook page + here on the blog!

    Being in Australia, it’s just coming into Spring, not Fall, but I’m looking forward to capturing my son’s 3rd Birthday next month!! He’s requested a ‘Superhero’ themed party, can’t wait to get started!

  3. says

    Do I leave my comment here? If so I’d love to capture some Halloween baking. I’m going to attempt to use the whole pumpkin not throw the insides. I’d also like to photograph the kiddies in there costumes, bobbing for apples.

  4. Meghan Newsom says

    I want to capture a camping trip! We love love to camp, but haven’t been in over a year. Can you believe it? This fall is going to be the year of camping!!

  5. April says

    This fall I’d love to photograph my grandchildren playing in the fall leaves and with pumpkins. The leaves are already coming down. For the Pumpkins I just need to find a pumpkin patch and a good day.
    These actions look so cool! Thank you for giving us this chance!

  6. says

    I love your blog! It’s such a lovely place to visit. However, I’m not commenting for the Giveaway. I only take pictures with my Nikon Coolpix and my photo editor is Pic Monkey. Someday I hope to enter the big girl world. But, until then. I’m just me here.

  7. Jennifer Moore says

    The most special photograph that will be taken this fall will be a family picture that will include my mother, something I never thought I would see earlier in the summer. She has fought and battled cancer and is on the road to recovery. So thankful and blessed!

  8. Melissa Bliss Rich says

    Oh Rebecca! I adore your ballet photo!! I hope your girl loves it. I enjoyed ballet for so many years. I hope my girls will one day too.

    Thanks for the fun giveaway! I’d love to capture a family hay ride 😉

    Have a great week!

  9. April says

    I forgot to comment on your photo. I love it!!! I love the composition and the way it blurs on the other dancers emphasizing her importance to you. It’s great. I did invite someone to your linky party. I don’t know if she will see it this week or not. I hope so but she is a busy mom so I have to hope she checks her email. :)

  10. Nessa Bixler says

    I would love to capture my two littles both smiling and looking at the camera together. I that doesn’t happen then just them enjoying all the good thing about fall. The leaves, the pumpkins, and Halloween fun.

  11. Mock-Turtle says

    Thanks for picking my photo!

    Oh, and by way of entry for the photoshop actions…
    I would like to capture Jack jumping in the crisp leaves this autumn!

  12. says

    Me and my son playing in the fallen leaves. It’s a picture I try to capture every year. Autumn is my favorite time of year and it lasts such a short time and I love to capture it!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. Rachel~Wildflower Photography Studio and a little bit vintage says

    such a lovely capture. :) my oldest takes ballet during the summer and adores it. :) she can’t wait to start again.

  14. Shoni says

    Last Fall, I got some great photos of our oldest at our favorite pumpkin patch. This Fall, I’m looking forward to our youngest being able to join in on the fun and getting it all documented.

    Love that photo of your little girl. She is precious.

  15. ~Karen SJAZ says

    My young granddaughter and I set out a bird feeder a short while back. I am hoping to capture images – for her and me, too – of birds taking advantage of the feast of seeds as fall brings in cooler temperatures.

  16. Jessima Munro says

    I live in Australia, so it is Spring for me, but I am looking forward to capturing my daughters first birthday. I can’t wait to capture the colours and her smile at her party :)

  17. Stephanie says

    the colors right now are so beautiful…we get such a short fall season here in Alberta so i’d love to get a few pics of my kids outside to remember this time.

  18. Shawna y says

    I would really like to capture a great shot of my son riding his bike. He just took off the training wheels and I would like to get a great shot of him cruising.

  19. Karen says

    We live on the east coast and my daughter on the west coast. Although we’ve seen our 8 mo. old grandson several times this year, none of the rest of the family has. She’s bringing him here next month and I can’t wait to get family photos of this darling boy and all his relatives!

  20. Rachel~Wildflower Photography Studio and a little bit vintage says

    realized when i commented yesterday i forgot to mention the photo i want to capture this fall…lol…so here goes…there is a beautiful old bridge on the farm where we always go for fall festival. this year i want to be sure and get some photos of my littles on that bridge! :) please count my in for these actions…i’m in need of some new ones. :)

  21. says

    This fall I would love to capture our thanksgiving dinner. Since she was a newborn we have always taken a picture of our youngest next to the turkey. It was a family joke cause the turkey is always bigger than her. Well we want to keep the tradition even though she has surpassed our turkeys in weight! Love your blog!

  22. Katie says

    I would love to capture my three little superheroes at Halloween! We don’t see much fall here in southern CA (unfortunately), but i always love kids in costume. :)

  23. mickisha caye says

    I am looking forward to taking some fun Halloween pictures this fall! We don’t really experience season changes where I live so Halloween is a fun fall event!

  24. says

    what a lovely giveaway.
    thank you for letting us enter.
    a moment i would love to capture is my two year old on a hay ride. we always forget to go and do this in the fall…and he is the last of five kiddos…so this would be a special moment.

  25. Elise says

    Here on the southern tip of Africa we are instead surrounded by the beautiful fresh colours of spring. So while all you Northeners are capturing the images of fall, I am out with my camera trying to capture this array before it fades in the summer heat.
