It’s Friday! Cheers!! {Self-Portrait Project)

It’s Friday!  Cheers!!  Today I’m cheersing with a really yummy glass of red wine.  It’s a new one I like, called Honey Badger.  I’m such a sucker for good graphic design work and cute wine labels.
Have you been following along with Amy’s self-portrait project?
While Wearing Heels

Her theme for March is “looking down.”  She suggested to me that I get a picture of Quinn hugging my legs and looking up, something she does on an almost daily basis.  Amy talked about her daughter being too old to do this, but how it was such a sweet memory she wished she had on film.

I love Amy.

And I loved this idea.  So I gave it a whirl.

I made many attempts.

Quinn was highly uncooperative.
But this led to a photo that I absolutely love.
Quinn might have inherited my love for walking around outside barefoot.
I’m getting more comfortable taking pictures of myself.
I might even like this one.
Have you started taking more pictures of yourself since hearing about Amy’s project?

    Lisa! I have really enjoyed seeing your pictures every month and hearing your thoughts about the challenge. I love that you took my suggestion and tried to implement it. The shadow picture of the both of you barefoot, that is precious. What a great moment in time captured and now to be remembered. You captured so many great mommy moments. I also love the rear view mirror picture. I can’t wait to see your pictures from next month!

    That’s a great idea! I’m so used to being behind the camera that I never end up taking any photos of myself during events or family gatherings. The shadow photo is super cute =P But the one of just the two of you looking at the camera is lovely as well!

      Lisa! While reading your comment I had this hilarious vision of you standing taking a picture of your shadow, only you had monster hands up in the air!! 🙂 I might have to do that one with Gavin.
