January Favorites {365}


The above pictures were taken from the car window while taking E back to college. Whirring by these snapshots of life far from the city is so fun. I love never knowing what’s around the next corner. Kind of like sending kids to college, except I actually would like to see around the next corner just a tiny bit. Thankfully, God already does that for us.


And then there’s G…exuberant energy bouncing through January, full of imagination and filling me with joy.


Before we got her hair officially braided for the first time, it was wild and free. And momma loves it like that. I like it every way, actually.


Second grade sunshine.

G took up basketball this month…and an itchy nose. We laugh because if I had a dollar for every time I took a picture with her scratching her nose, well…

This year I’m participating in a 365 blog circle with a group of truly amazing photographers. They inspire me every day with their creativity and life stories. It never fails to amaze me how we all see life so differently through a lens. Please continue around the circle to Jen’s beautiful art.  She captures her kids and her world with unique perspectives and has lots of fun!

    Love your work as always. She’s grown so much! My fav is the black and white trampoline image with the sun flare. Lovely!

    Beautiful photographs ~ I love the light of the back lit and your use of negative space. These shots really make me want to get a trampoline or at least find one to shoot with!

    I love all of these, Carissa!! I can’t decide if I like her hair down or braided, either way, GORGEOUS! Even braided, it’s a natural… kind of not on purpose look and I love that.
    So funny about the nose. Every time I get the camera out, mine has to pee.

    Love seeing your family again!
