Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
So, Felicity is taking a long nap right now (it’s Saturday afternoon) and I should be moving quickly to take advantage of what little time I have. Unfortunately, I’m not moving too fast these days. Time really does slow down doesn’t it? Or rather…Ashley slows down. Either way, welcome back to the Scavenger Hunt. Before we get into today’s hunt, I wanted to put in a plug for the Quarter Top Five which is coming soon. If you’ve been participating, you know the routine, but if you’re new, here are a few things you should know:

  • Linky begins Wednesday, September 26th through Wednesday, October 3rd
  • Go through your July, August and September 2012 photo archives.
  • Choose your favorite FIVE photos and post them to your blog or Flickr account beginning September 26th
  • PLEASE only use photos that include your CHILDREN and/or PETS
  • Accompany each photo with a short explanation (or caption) of why it was selected
  • Link up with Amber at Click.Pray.Love, & Sarah at NapTime MomTog, or me at Ramblings and Photos
With that said, let’s get to the hunt. Today I’ll be photographing a gender reveal party. I’m super excited to find out what this couple is having – the “mom to be” is my dental hygienist and I’m absolutely thrilled that she’s expecting. But anyways, if you’ve participated in the Scavenger Hunt in the past, I hope this week’s items inspired you. If you’re new to the Scavenger Hunt…WELCOME! Next week’s items are sponsored by Michelle of Michelle Renee Photography.

The rules are simple:
  1. Anyone can participate.
  2. You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. Creativity is also encouraged!
  3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive (although I’m not too strict about it – I do my best to take fresh shots).
  4. Link up here on Sunday (or Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above.
  5. Leave comments for at least five entries around yours (with so many new participants each week, it’s the only way I know to be inclusive).
  6. Have fun!

Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. Kiss

Felicity - blue eyes
In the process of trying to capture a certain shot (inspired by my photographer friend, Erin Tole), my husband caught this moment. Felicity still has beautiful deep blue eyes and I’m crossing my fingers that she’ll keep them (hopefully she will since they seem to be dominant on Jeremy’s side of the family). Anyways, she was asleep in the shots prior to this one. When she woke up, I leaned over to give her a kiss. Love it!

2. Askew

I’m not at all inspired by this shot, but the linoleum in our kitchen is definitely askew. See how it curves and pulls away from the wall. At some point, we’ll replace the floor. Until then, here’s what we’ve got.

3. Fragrant

Scentsy, Ollie
One of our friends gave us a Ollie the Elephant Baby from the Scentsy collection. I try not to attend too many “home parties,” (I tend to host one a year…and attend maybe one or two others) so I’ve missed out on Scentsy’s product line. However, I am loving Ollie. The fragrance is super clean and sweet…and he’s pretty cute too.

4. Simple

Pacifier photo, Soothie
I guess I could have photographed anything to represent simple, but I went with the simplicity of a pacifier on the table. We keep one of these within arm’s reach at all times. Granted, she’d much rather have me – but when I’m not available, the pacifier is necessary.

5. Plant

Plant, Ivy leaves
I think I’ve mentioned that prior to getting married, I only had artificial plants. My husband has sine changed that to include a few real plants. This one is our most recent addition. I’m kinda liking a little ivy in our home. Doesn’t hurt that it photographs pretty.

So, what were your interpretations of the items this week? Be sure to load your pictures on your blog (or your Flickr photostream) and link up at the bottom of this post. Feel free to grab a button to display on your blog along with your scavenger hunt items. The linky will be open until Tuesday night at midnight (EST). If you didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week, here are your items (these can also be found at the bottom of my blog each week), sponsored by Michelle of Michelle Renee Photography:

1) Cracked
2) Fallen
3) Ordinary Color
4) Bokeh
5) Fence

Again, thank you to Michelle for so many great scavenger hunt items. If you’d like to contribute items to the list, just send me an email with your suggestions (I can better keep track of them this way – and I appreciate all of you that have submitted lists already…my SHS file is quite happy). Each week, I will select one reader’s prompt list, add those items to what is currently on tap and give the selected reader a shout out on my blog during Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

Happy Shooting!


    Love the simple soother shot and of course nothing quite compares with kissing a baby.

    Awww, loving your kiss, just so sweet!!

    Oh wow..I haven’t been visiting yor blog for a long time. Great new look and everthing.

    I love your photos this week. Your baby is cute!

    She is so cute! I don’t care about the hunt anymore, I love looking at your baby!
    Take care. x :)

    That kiss shot is simply adorable and I especially like the dof of your ‘fragrant’ shot.

    My fave is that fragrant shot. They have all kinds of stuff for babies-who knew? I’m glad you’re enjoying your little miss so much. She’s growing so fast.

    That kiss shot is perfect!

    Ashely – these are adorable. I love your kiss shot!!!!

    Felicity is just so cute. Her hair reminds me so much of Bennett’s at that age.

    Your simple shot is my favorite!!!! It is a great representation of our life at this time

    I just love your kiss & simple. So perfect!!!!!

    Thanks for the heads up on the Q top 5. I needed that reminder.

    All goregousness in the one place – eeek! Love the block of lilac with that kiss photo – genius xxx

    Fantastic shots!! And, yes, time does seem to stand still. It did for me even after Emmett was born, and I’m just the grandma. Since momma had to have a C-section, I was there a lot to help out, and tending to him was about the only thing I’d get done during the day. It does get better, though.

    Yep, Gina took the words right my mouth! Love those!

    Wonderful set again.
    I really liked your Kiss shot – Felicity is so adorable and I just love her hair.
    Fragrant was cute.
    Plant was my favorite from your set. I like the clear focus and look of this shot.

    Simple is divine. where would we be without those pacifiers? Kiss is so sweet, and I love watching Felicity change week to week.

    Love simplicity. Where would we be without a pacife? Love seeing Felicity from week to week. she’s certainly filling out.

    It is so fun watching Felicity grow! Love her baby blues! I think they will hang around! Love the simplicity of the pacifier in the light.

    Fragrant is so sweet with Felictiy’s foot in the air.

    And..what a neat surprise that you chose my prompts for next week! Thanks, Ashley. :)

    Love that little elephant!

    Love the kiss shot! It is perfect! And the little elephant is adorable! Love your simple shot also! Thanks again for using my suggestions! I’m making up a new list. :)

    I love your kiss photo! So adorable!

    I had to come back and say, I showed Felicity’s (kiss) photo to my daughter, she had a fit over your daughter. She went on and on about how beautiful she is! Just had to tell you! :)

    I didn’t know Scentsy made frangrant stuffed animals! I’ll have to look into this if I need a baby gift. Your sweet kiss is precious, and Felicity will bloom because of her mommy’s kisses.

    Felicity is adorable! Love your simple pic a lot. They are all good though.

    Always love seeing images of your sweetie pie. That stuffed animal is so cute, I can almost smell it!!

    Love love that sweet kiss shot… and yes… beautiful blue eyes! and the binki shot is fun too… we always had about 80 on hand at all times… Abby was a little addicted to those things! til she was… nevermind! ;) just kidding. 3 . 3 years of binki!! =)

    Simple is brilliant!

    Beautiful, I especially love your interpretation of a “kiss”

    That’s such a sweet Kiss shot. :)

    We used to have ivy plants all over and I love how they trail and drop down over our bookshelf (we put ours at the very top shelf).

    Your photos are all so beautiful. Ollie is super cute. Thanks for hosting the Hunt each week. I really enjoy the challenge.

    I love your simple shot…

    So many special photos of Felicity! The pacifier photo made me smile…very creative.

    All the pictures are just great…Although my favorite is kiss…

    love this group of photos! Felicity is a beautiful baby!
