creativity project theme...commercial style























  


(giggles)
she fell...then dramatically laid there and posed.



please visit a personal friend, my "blogger bestie" and next in our circle, becky, from life with kaishon
an amazing mother, photographer and blogger who is as beautifully expressive and artfully endearing
 as the moments, emotions and energy she captures in her portraits.

(pssst: join the fun and share your own holiday image on our facebook page!)

    1. aaaaa...the joys of holiday consumerism! there is something magic about it all, if i'm honest with myself...there is, but a twinge of peace and joy, even among the door buster deals, mall madness and mini toddler break downs :D

  7. Aww, did she just "dropped" from all that shopping? I laughed out loud when I saw the tag for the "naughty numbers." :)

    Have a wonderful Christmas!

    1. she DID. "i'm reeeeeally, really tired". she said she refused to walk any more steps. not one more. and then...that happened. toddlers have more balls than anyone i've ever met on earth.

      may you have a wonderful one as well! thank you!

  8. What a great take on the theme! I loved all of the photos; you captured the "commercial" side in a very real way. Question; did you have your "big" camera? Was everybody OK with you taking pictures? One of my good friends was taking pictures in a grocery store just to capture the shapes, colors, etc. and they ran him out. Threatened to call the police! It looks to me like YOU had fun! :)

    1. thank you! it was kind of last minute, beings how i have, yet, to put up any decorations in my home. we tend to wait til the week of for some odd reason.

      answer: yes/no. i use my 'big' camera, but normally take a smaller lens for more discreet captures. i've been told to either stop shooting or leave and that embarrassment has forced to me to become a ninja when shooting in stores. it's only happened once or twice. i'm, almost, always NEVER seen. i'm very quick and am good at camouflaging within clothes racks or behind other people i may be walking with. sometimes i use the people i'm with as decoys (pretend i'm taking photos of them).
