I really wanted to find a way to photograph my little world and show you how I interpreted “looking in.”
It’s winter. It’s cold. ish. Not totally unbearable to play outside. At least not here in Virginia. But it can be cold, and it is fun to play inside.
So my photos for this post are those peaking inside our home, as we make our way through winter and have fun inside.
Levi loves anything having to do with painting and playdoh. Just like his big sister, he loves to make stuff. He uses scissors to cut playdoh, he mixes the colors, and he makes malleable fashion wear too.
Playing pool and the electric drum set is another one of Levi’s favorite things to do inside. Meanwhile, Annabelle, who can now be considered an old timer around the pool table is more interested in striking a pose on her mom’s photography props. Both of my children are little hams for the camera. And I totally do not have a problem with that. If you look in the background you can see my fun baby hat wall which I put together for my newborn, baby, and kid clients. It’s definitely a textured piece of wall art too, :-)
Winter is also a great time to stay inside for photos. I took this photograph of Annabelle in my home studio, just minutes before we headed out the door for her friend’s valentine party. Over the past month or so, my little girl is more and more interested in her appearance; she wants to brush her hair, which used to be a real struggle to get her do. She wants to curl her hair. She wants to wear sparkly lip gloss. She draws self portraits of herself with a princess crown. My Annabelle has turned into a real girly girl. And I am loving it because she hasn’t given up climbing trees or making mud stew.
So that’s pretty much it for “a look inside” in our home right now. Inside moments and inside days are made bearable by good old fashioned play. And I have to tell you that I am a big fan of that.
