It’s been weeks since I uploaded my last photo. My mind has been smashed. I packed my life into boxes and two suitcases. I left the boxes back home in Sweden and brought the suitcases with me to Santa Monica, CA. I will live here for a year to study photography at Santa Monica College. I’m excited and scared!

Today I took the bus to Hollywood and to see the kids having a blast in the fountain was my favourite thing about the visit!

We all know at times how hard it is to get that one picture of our kids. I usually have to have some kind of bribe in place, but in a random act of willingness for his mummy my boy gave me my image I wanted

I sat here, in the midst of one of our lovely thunderstorms, and waited… and shot… and waited… and hoped to catch the random lightning bolt across the sky! I got one, out of nearly 80 shots where I JUST missed it. — with ~photographic melodys~.

My 3-year-old randomly decided to eat her breakfast of “cut-up peaches with NO SKIN” with a fork while perched on the kitchen counter. Some days you just have to say, “yes!”:)

So many random things packed into our crazy blue rental on the river this weekend. A giant Mardi Gras mask in the entry way, flamingo lights in the living room, a voodoo mask in the atrium, and so so much more all layered on top of blue walls, blue chairs, and a blue microwave!

Random lightning and random colors with auto white balance. This is my first attempt at capturing lightning. My settings were probably all wrong but I enjoyed watching the storm and trying to catch the bolts made for good sport

The apples represent Apple Records and also the four Beatles. They eventually all went off and did their own solo thing.

The only Beatles song in my head this week is Come Together, however it keeps getting overpowered by a Sesame Street song……….

One of these things is not like the others,

One of these things just doesn’t belong,

Can you tell which thing is not like the others

By the time I finish my song?

huge contemplation here in whether or not to submit this. but she insisted. “go ahead aniya, i know there are other women like me out there”… what did she mean? i’ll tell you..

as young girls, we are taught to keep many things to ourselves, to essentially hide part of who we are… as teens we often rebel against this – short shorts, crop tops.. as women, we choose to hide our bodies. our decisions to be mothers often leave marks that the world regards as undesirable. it takes courage to rebel against the world as we did as teenagers. and as women, we can take it further.

so what did she mean? she is not alone in thinking her body isnt perfect, she is not alone in thinking that she’s been “ruined” by gracing this world with 3 beautiful children. she is not alone in not seeing in herself what everyone else can see in this image… beauty.

she wanted me to submit this image, and she wants every woman to know…

you are not alone.. and you, are….. beautiful

Week 32 “Solitary”

I have been feeling a little sorry for myself since my husband started his new job where he is gone 3 weeks a month. I am very thankful he has a good job but I’ve been lonely without him. I was having one of these lonely, solitary moments when this sunset happened. I was in awe and thought to myself that no matter how lonely I feel, I’m not alone…ever. I have a God who creates sunsets like these, precisely when I need the reminder that He is with me. This weeks theme of “solitary” just made everything fall together that much more.

Week 32/52 {Solitary}

Solitary = Me…especially now that my last baby started Kindergarten today. My role in the world I know has changed. In an instant, I have gone from being needed every waking moment to having a completely quiet house with no one to answer to but myself. I should be excited..I can finally get things organized, work on my designs, go shopping by myself….but, I just keep looking at the clock waiting for 3 o’clock to get here so the chaos can ensue once again!

Solitary week 32 | the lone foot of my son as he swims and explores the pool. Also signifies how I feel shooting underwater. The quiet, no shutter sounds, no direction, just a more focused way of shooting. I have to really plan out my shot much more underwater…you know the lack of air thing makes you more deliberate in what you want to capture before heading under alone

My almost 3 y/o “baby” broke her arm this week. I think it’s been tougher on me than it has been on her. Wearing an immobilizing band and only being allowed to use a {solitary} arm didn’t come close to stopping this little firecracker
