Finishing What I Started... #28, #29, #30.

August. Nearly 3 months behind the last day I did these...

Am I the only one who struggles to finish things I've started? Projects, grand ideas, crafties, etc... ?? It's a lifelong struggle of mine for sure!

But I vowed to myself to finish editing these last 3 days of Lucy and POST THEM THIS WEEK. So. Without further ado or apology, I give you:

Lucy, Day 28

This was the slackiest day of all the 30 days... I simply didn't have the steam to do anything this day, so out into the yard we went, and I grabbed a couple of Lucy just chillin' on her soft blanket. Easy. And kinda boring. But whatever... at least I didn't skip the day altogether.

Lucy, Day 29:

To make up for the day before, I made a supreme effort this day--- bean bag setup and everything. In fact, I even whipped up the vintage yo-yo flower headband for Lucy just for this day and this backdrop. The flower is made from fabric and lace from my grandma's stash, so it's particularly sweet to me.

I find that I am loving this next one the best... Hm.

And for funsies, since I've not done this yet for any of her 30 Day Project, here's a pullback of the sunroom "studio" where I shot 95% of her photos. Fun!

You can see the beanbag, up on a table so I didn't have to crouch every day... The space heater... the reflectors not being used in the background... The pile of blankets on the beanbag...My collection of seamless paper rolls in the back...Good times!

And.....

Lucy, Day 30

A day for swaddles, to keep her asleep... A day of just getting those last shots. I also pulled out my Lensbaby for a couple of shots, just because...

And after she woke, I just snapped a few more of her in her everyday swaddle, the one we use all the time in real life... Her face flushed from her nap and from the space heater... her eyes a bit dazed and sleepy...

And even a big yawn.... ! Makes me want to go take a nap of my own!

Hello, Lulu... Nice to see your big eyes on your last day of newborn photo sessions!

And just to help us all remember that those 30 days may have frozen time for Lucy the Newborn, she is well and truly growing, and dazzling my camera with her sparkling grey blue eyes and ever-growing arsenal of expressions. So, to finish the post for today, a few of Lucy, approx. 3 months old. I love love love these:

BAM. Her split-her-face-in-half-with-joy smile. Giant. Delightful. And she's pretty generous with it. :) It's those smiles that keep me going with her, I swear it.

For now, this will have to do, post-wise. There are many many other things I need to finish... More things to blog about. But this has been a day stuck at the computer and I think I need a break. The end. Thanks for sticking with me through those endless 30Days of Lucy... Ha!
