30 Minutes in the Life : May 2015

May 21, 2015  •  7 Comments

A very random day out with my kids. It was during the week. My son had been home with a stomach bug the day before and his school required him to stay home one more day. He was fine to go but rules are rules; besides I like having both my kids home so we went on a little road trip to a park in Danbury, Connecticut.

For the photography set that may read this, the challenge for me was to shoot everything at f1.4.  I always play it more safe at f3.5.  Well, 30 minutes at the park at f1.4 and the aperture has been there since!

Once f1.4, f3.5 goes out the door? Has a nice ring to it....

Please head on to my neighbor the fabulous Hayley Hay Photography to see how she spent 30 minutes this month!

Meagan, your kids are just adorable! Those freckles your son has!! I also shoot wide open 99% of the time but I love that you'd set yourself a challenge this month and you rocked it! What a lovely day it looks!

Megan, first of all I have to admit, that "random day" is always my favorite! Second - I used to shoot with 1.4 most of the time, but little by little it got to 2.5. To be safe! :) I love the idea of doing 30 minutes of just 1.4. Really fun! Pictures are gorgeous! I really enjoyed this post!
Meagan, I absolutely love these images. I love how close your children are. They are just adorable. There are so many wonderful images in this set. You will cherish these forever. I love getting to see this piece of your world.
