Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Welcome back to Scavenger Hunt Sunday! I’m in the middle of doing laundry and preparing for tomorrow’s (or rather today’s) shoot, so I’m going to get straight to the photos. If this is your first time joining us, welcome aboard. If you’ve been a part of the hunt before, I hope this week’s list inspired you. Next week’s list is sponsored by Kimberly.

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. Background

IMG_9580 RS
Several months ago, my father-in-law planted a small orchard. I was hoping to photograph Felicity in said orchard this past weekend (with the orchard being the “background”), but it was a bit colder than I expected. Instead, I decided to photograph Felicity wearing a new dress her Mawmaw bought her in front of their mountain view. What a background!

2. Spotted

Polka dots RS
As you can see, Felicity’s new dress has lots of polka dots…and so do her shoes.

3. Weather

IMG_0083 RS
I shared this photo on Friday as part of a three month old portrait preview, but I just can’t get enough of it. A little rain isn’t going to stop me from capturing beautiful moments!

4. Motion

Blowing dandelions RS
I’ve always wanted to capture a little girl blowing dandelions. Fortunately, my niece was ready and willing this past weekend…and I think it works for motion. I also think this shot looks so magical. Love it!

5. Sweet

Little Feet RS
My niece is so sweet with Felicity. While my nephew was taking a nap, she went outside with us to take a few photos. It always helps if I have someone to make Felicity smile/laugh/giggle while I snap away. Once I was done taking photos of just Felicity, I thought I’d capture the two of them together in a non-traditional way. Very sweet.

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, your items are listed below…sponsored by Kimberly.

Thanks again Kimberly for the great Scavenger Hunt prompts. 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). 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!

    Your weather shot is completely awesome! I love that you can SEE the rain falling down. Your motion shot is lovely as well.

    Haha! So I just went and looked at the post where you did Bellamy’s three month old pictures and read that you added the rain back in! I was trying to figure out how you got the rain to look so good in that picture, and now i know! I would love a tutorial on that!

    Cute niece & Felicity shot, love children with smaller children- so beautiful to watch!

    Love the dandelion!

    That rain shot is amazing and Felicity is so cute in that dress – too sweet!
