Quarterly Top 5 Photos

I have a love/hate relationship with choosing a “favorite” photo to submit for any kind of photography link up.

Love because I love looking back through my photos, remembering the moments and watching my little Peanut grow up picture by picture.  It also helps me see things in a new perspective – perspective that I took with photos, clarify or lack thereof with certain settings, interesting angles and edits.  I can look at them with a new eye and judge my photos a little, learning each time.

Hate because I can’t pick just 5!

I’m going to change my mind at least 5 more times before I hit publish, I know it.  But here it goes…


I love my little nug’s eye lashes.  Something that I always wanted to capture to remember them and to show her when she is a teenager.

Another moment that I want to share with her when she’s older – the messy eater stage!  I love the eyes in this photo, the pensive look.

Our first vacation with the baby – not only was it amazing, but I’m so glad that I learned to use my camera in Manual mode before our first vacation so I could capture moments like these.  I love the reflection of the sun in this photo.

Another beach photo – I love the way she points her little toes like a ballerina and I love the shadow on the sand.

This one, although so simple, is one of my favorites.  It shows a candid moment – a daddy with his baby, playing with legos.  I love the angle of this shot and I love Peanut’s curious look as she fishes out the legos.
