This week the Project 52 was photographing motion.  Here are a few of my favorites from the week :)

I practiced a little bit of everything with this one... photoshoping several photos together, self portraits with a tripod and continuous timer plus low indoor light.  Turned out pretty cool.. and accurate.  This is my life on the weekends!  I was hoping Kate would join in but once she sees that camera light flash she freezes, lol.

My other motion pics come from a swimming party that my daughter attended.  She LOVES swimming!

Marrying a Marler

When you marry a member of the Marler family, you not only gain a family of 40+ you gain a few pounds!  That's right, I said it!  The Marlers know how to make food right.  So, who do you think I decided to focus my Clickin Moms food  photography assignment for the month on?  You guessed it!  This particular get-together was for my daughter's 4th birthday.  She shared a party with cousin, Gretchen who turned 6. 

A little prep... we were in charge of cupcakes!

 Katie's lady bug cupcake

Gretchen's camouflage cupcake

Ham and cheese sliders with caramelized onions and mustard

Potato zucchini soup in my mother in law's awesome copper pot

Beef soup with homemade dumplings

Italian salad with artichokes, pimentos, red onion and Parmesan

Hot, crusty bread

Katie's all time favorite- mac and cheese

Fondue with cheesecake, marshmallows and pretzels... and around 7 p.m. the potato chips landed there, too!

Happy birthday to my sweet Katie!
