I really loved doing You Capture this past year. It helped me grow as a creative person, to look for new ways to fulfill challenges. And along the way, I managed to get some photos that I really love. I can't thank Beth enough for coming up with such a great idea. I wasn't sure if the best of was supposed to be just photos used for You Capture or any photos, so I did a mixture!
My first ever You Capture remains my favorite: something you love, captured without a flash. 20 week belly. It seems so long ago.
My next favorite is from my first You Capture with a new camera, the theme was happiness. I took it at the Chicago Botanic gardens, on a beautiful, warm day. How I miss summer. And flowers.
And finally, a fall themed one. I've always adored this shot of Luke and going back through archives, I realize how much I want to print and frame this.
This one was not a You Capture, but a teeny tiny sweet Tommy bean taken with my phone when we were still in the hospital. I want to share this picture of Beth, Arianne, and Tommy. It was our last dinner out before Arianne moved away. We were being silly and the people behind us were so bizarre and loud and I teased Arianne for ordering a wimpy dessert. Right now, I'm wishing she was still close enough that I could attempt to heal with food and love and laughter and yell at her not eating a big enough dessert. Please, if you have a second, give her your love and support. She needs it.
