52 Tuesdays- Week No.4 Theme: Serenity

For this weeks theme my friends from Saritney Photgraphy picked "serenity". This was a tough one for me because first thought was my life is anything but serene lately, but here's my interpretation :)

Sooo I was trying to think of a time when I feel serene, and I picked the time right before I fall asleep after getting some much needed editing done on the computer. I've recently moved my workstation into our bedroom, and put a bench on the opposite side of my desk for her to sit on while I'm working b/c Olivia is constantly swarming around me when I try to get anything done. She is super into coloring and somehow always manages to find a pen hidden somewhere, and it terrifies me! We have a hard time staying on the paper at age 2 :) so here's a day in the life of me building up to my "serenity" :)

Seriously though ! You have to admit she is pretty scary with a pen in her hand :) lol!
Phew!!!! :)

Now go see what Sara and Britney of Saritney did this week! :)

52 Tuesdays- Tuesday No. 2 "Cheese"

So this week the theme was "cheese". My thought was I wanted to do something with maybe a cheese on cheese...but then Olivia has been watching the movie "Rio" lately and the thought with cheese came a line from the movie where they say in Minnesota they have an expression "Cheese and Sprinkles" soo... there is the thought behind it and here's what I came up with... :)

Now go and check out what the girls from Saritney came up with...

Next week's theme.... "Night"

I Heart Faces Entry- Best Face of 2011

Well for 2011 I have to go with my favorite little person, my daughter Olivia. This shot was taken on a last minute weekend trip to Callaway Gardens in Georgia. I love this image because I caught her as she was exploring the grape vineyard and she turned to look at me when I called her name. I absolutely love her heart shaped lips <3 It was a gorgeous day that I'll never forget from 2011! :)

52 Tuesdays- Tuesday No. 1

So I am doing a personal project along with a few friends and we are calling it "52 Tuesdays". Same overall idea as a 365 project where you take a picture everyday, but different in that we get a week to complete it and it has a theme. We will have a different theme each week and will photograph something that fits that theme however we see fit. This first week the theme is "About Me" so here it goes...

I now own a 5D Mark II!!!! Pinch me! Now I'm too legit, too legit to quit, hey hey!!!

My biggest supporter and the greatest husband and father in the world, my Jeremy ! 

My greatest accomplishment... my daughter Olivia Okchom Hilliard! My little quarter Korean masterpiece :)

I love bokeh, anytime, anywhere :) This is at Stone Mtn. in Atlanta, GA on our weekend trip w/ family.

And the thing that looms over me everyday... my huge regime of meds that I am on to control my AutoImmune Disease. I take some of these twice a day.
 I can add to my list of talents professional pill taker :) lol...
So now you know a little about me!
Next weeks theme: "Cheese"

Now go and see what the girls from Saritney did this week!

I Heart Faces Entry- Theme: "Bust a Gut"

This photo is from one of my recent shoots, and it makes me laugh everytime I think back to when I took it. I asked the son to give mommy a little kiss and he gave her one then another, and another, and another knowing that it would tickle and he would get a big laugh out of his mommy :) soo cute!
