Spring Training with Ella

I know I'm very late for day three - and yes it is still day 3 of Spring Training where I am.  Although, only for about another hour. =) 

Day three features a lesson from photography coach Kelly Willette.  I personally fell in love with her photography when she was featured during Write.Click.Scrapbook.'s Photo Philosophy Week.  Remember that?  Kelly's lesson for today is all about portraits vs. moments photography.  I'll confess, I don't take many portraits of my boys because honestly, it's hard to get to them to sit or stand still for even a moment.  And I feel like I'm lucky sometimes to get any photos of Nathan at all!  Which is funny because I recently made a layout with a photo of Nathan that I love


and it fits in so well with today's challenge which is to make a page featuring your best people photos - those photos that really capture the subject’s personality.  This photo certainly captures Nathan's personality.  Playing with a car while wearing his engineer's cap - backwards of course - with his tongue sticking out - of course!  He is so playful and silly and just always on the go.  I have to take several photos of him in the hopes of getting one good shot.  But when you get that one, it's worth it. 

The lesson for Day 4 is already up as is the challenge on The Daily Trumpet, create a page featuring any distressing techniques.  I'm looking forward to Tammy's lessons for Spring Training.  I do not really consider myself a technique based scrapbooker at all, but still, I do like to learn new things and try new techniques from time to time.  I'm sure her lessons are going to be a lot of fun.

I think that's all for now.  =)
