|Here are my pictures from this week in Lightroom|
I have found that there are many moments that I would have loved to capture with my camera but my kids aren’t willing to be photographed. And trust me, forcing teenagers to be photographed is not something for the faint of heart.
My work around in this situation is to let them take their own pictures and have them share a couple. All three of my kids have iPhones and generally they like their own handy work better then mine. Truth be told, they are quite creative with their phones and I could learn a thing or two from them! I love seeing their lives through their lens. They are silly and fun. They take risks willingly! This tip has definitely made my pages more diverse in style and allowed me to incorporate events that I wasn’t even present to enjoy.
Throughout the cross of my week I upload pictures into Lightroom, a software program I use to organize my photos by date. When I am ready to begin a weekly spread I look at all the pictures I have for that week and I edit my favorites. Depending on the kit and products I plan to use, I determine if I want my pictures to be color or black and white. I typically edit all of my pictures in color first and then tweak a couple in black and white especially when the color palette is too busy or distracting. I have found that every week is different and that I don’t have any hard and fast rules. I do like to layout my pictures within a template before I start adding digital papers and element. This allows me to see which pictures should be the focus and what items are worthy of journaling about.

It depends on the quality of the image and the look I am trying to accomplish.
