52 Weeks of Awesomeness continues!

The challenge for Week 10 of 52 Weeks of Awesomeness is “Mom”.

I’ve always had a reverence for moms. They are the most unselfish, loving and gracious people. This video was posted three years ago, but is still incredibly relevant (take 4 minutes of your time to watch it, even if you’ve seen it already!) – Brisa is the “Director of Operations” for our family. She’s absolutely amazing. Paxton and I are so blessed to have her as our mom, our leader, provider, encourager and supporter. She makes us, us and I love us! =)

Before moving to Tucson, I never thought about how the desert blooms in the spring. Well, this tree in our front yard is blooming beautifully and I wanted to use it as my background. The wind was insane and so we worked quickly to make sure little Paxton didn’t get too grumpy and for Brisa’s hair to stay somewhat in place. I placed Brisa and Paxton about 5 feet away from the tree so the drop off in focus would be more dramatic. I love how the flowers in the background almost create a bullseye to direct your attention to Brisa and Paxton! #StoryBehindTheImage

For more information about 52 Weeks of Awesomenessweekly photography challengeAfter a 4 year hiatus, the La Brisa weekly photography challenge, 52 Weeks of Awesomeness, is back!!! As a photographer, sometimes you need to work on things outside of your normal day-to-day life and this weekly photography challenge is designed to utilize your personal experiences, your unique perspective and newly learned photography techniques to improve your photos. Weekly for the next year, I will be sharing my images with you. You’ll find my weekly photography challenge images on the La Brisa blog, instagram.com/labrisaphoto and facebook.com/LaBrisaPhotography!

52 Weeks of Awesomeness is for any photography enthusiasts of all skill levels and equipment. The goal is to have fun and learn a little bit more about photography along the way.

Each week, there is a new challenge to photograph based on one of three categories:

Personal – the best photographers use their own experiences to create unique photographs!
Perspective – view everyday objects in a different way to inspire your creativity!
Technique – learn various photography methods to make your images more dynamic and interesting!

For those of you interested in participating, PLEASE join me in this weekly photography challenge! The more the merrier! You definitely do not need to be a professional photographer, this is something you can easily do with your point and shoot, cell phone, ipad, etc. You can comment with a link to your image here on our blog or on our La Brisa fan page or you can tag La Brisa Photography in your image on your own FB page or use the hashtag #52WoA on twitter and/or instagram that way everyone can view each other’s photos!
