Taking photos from where I stand is a subject I never tire from photographing… even when Collin might roll his eyes as he has to stop and wait for me to capture this very second of where I am walking. Sometimes I even think, what am I going to do with all these pics of my feet? But now that I look back and can think about where I was & what I was doing… makes me glad that I took a second to photograph it.
The snowy photo is from taking photos of my 6 month baby bump. I remember freezing my tooshie off in the snow but Collin and I were out Christmas shopping and passed this gorgeous forest of white covered trees and thought we’d jump out and take a photo. And by we I mean I bribed him too. heehee
The spring toes are from my mother in law’s wedding… a great day where I witnessed a fresh start at love.
The summer toes are at the beach… I probably have the most pictures of my feet in the sand which makes sense since that’s where I wish I walked more often!
The autumn boots are at Sundance. I took the girls up there for a wedding while Collin was out of town and it was a simple yet memorable night for me while spending time with my girls in such a beautiful setting.
With each picture I was at a different season in my life with different worries and different joys… I can’t help but stop and think where these feet have been and where I hope to go. Where I don’t want to ever walk again and where I want to run right now to live it all over again.
I scrapped these photos for a year in review and wrote some things about our family during each of the four seasons. I made my own pockets out of Thickers packaging and sewed the pockets to the page. I used 4 different Thickers packages. I trimmed off the top of the thickers label with out breaking the seal and pushed my 6×6 photo to the very top of the packaging. Then I cut off the extra plastic leaving about a 1/2″ enough room to sew the pocket down.
The base page started with a piece of cardstock then I added 6×6 patterned pieces of paper. Next, I added some final touches with stickers, brads & my go-to wood accents. Last, I added some simple stamping and journaling behind the pockets. I will probably just attach this right to the outside of a page protector so I will be able to read each season’s journaling easily.
