My Morning View! | Lifestyle Photography

Starting a new series on my blog … {What __________ looks like} – The first entry is …What My Morning View Looks Like

What a wonderful way to document our lives and to practice, practice, practice, with my Nikon girl.:)

This adorable bed head is my morning view!  Betty May has co slept with us from day one and even though she has a big girl bed now, she still ends up in our bed by morning. She has some crazy hair in the mornings, which I love.  She is so sweet right now I could literally bust.  After her molars came in she has been nothing put pure joy on a stick! Saying I’m in love with this child is an understatement. It really is like having your own heart walking around on the outside of your body.  This is what my morning view looks like….

Memory Keeping |Project Life | Scrapbooking 2015

2015 has been wonderful so far! New adventures came into my life. The change has been fantastic. Being a Memory Keeper is still very much who I am, but it is taking a fresh form this year. Here we are in the middle of March and I am still not absolutely certain of my memory keeping system for the year. I do know that I am enjoying the process even without a structured plan. Serving the Lord, Being a wife & mommy, and Homeschooling are my top priorities.  The Lord provided a wonderful opportunity for my family and I when I became an Ambassador for an amazing company called Plexus. It has been amazing!  This Health & Wellness company is getting me healthy and allowing the extra income that we so desperately need! *Confession – I always thought I wanted a career in the scrapbooking industry. It was on my mind daily, but I know the Lord had other plans for me. He provided a way for me to help others with their health.  It has been so rewarding and fulfilling.  Plexus is so generous. 50% of all profits go back to the ambassadors so you can imagine my utter shock when I received my pay check. I have been blessed to have so much interest in the products. (They really do work) I will do a separate post on my personal success story. With this success it has changed my memory keeping format. You want to know what is really cool? I can actually look back and see where God was closing one door for me so that another could be opened.  I had no idea it was happening a the time, but it is so clear now.  In September I stepped down from the CT position of my dreams. I had been with this team for many years, but I just felt that it was time for a change. (not having any clue that Plexus was about to take off for me) – The Lord was definitely putting me on a new path. I am so excited to see how my Plexus business grows. I am still a memory keeper, project lifer, and scrapbooker. I just can’t give it up. I will always need to have this outlet in my life. New opportunities have come my way. I became a Creative Team member for 2 fabulous teams.  These requirements for these 2 teams combined aren’t as much as the one team I stepped down from so I have definitely found the balance that works.  I create for Sahlin Studios and LOVE | DAY | SEED.  I am absolutely loving both of these teams!  For now I am creating a variety of projects. Pocket pages, digital pages, and hybrid pages. I am using a variety when it comes to size, but I decided to put everything in one album.  The different sizes in one book are totally okay with me.  It’s like flipping through a giant mini book. I decided it was time to get some of these project on my blog.  I am excited to represent my teams here on my blog. The beginning of my 2015 album includes these pages. You will see a variety along the way (and a lot of gaps) but I look forward to filing them in throughout the year.

31 days of Sweet Betty May

October is my FAVORITE month! I decided to take on a fun project this month and photograph my sweet baby girl every single day! I knew it would be a wonderful opportunity to capture real moments and preserves real memories! I decided to convert all the photos to black and white for a uniform look, but I may try a month of color photos next. This is also an opportunity for me to grow as a photographer. –To work with what I have. –To capture the happy moments along with the sad. –To find a way to hang on to my precious baby girl as long as I can! She turned 11 months old today and I am truly thankful to have an entire month’s worth of daily photographs. I plan to get these images into a photo book so that she can have them to enjoy forever! The photos may be imperfect technically, but they are perfect to our family. Some are blurry, some have dirty faces, and yes, even in some, she is wearing the same clothes 2 days in a row. That’s real life for us. Sometimes what you have on makes the best pajamas! I’ve included a caption for each photo underneath the photos. Thank you for taking a peek into the life of my sweet Betty May Maria Mallory!
