Today I made sure to wake up a little bit earlier and put frozen on for Brynlee so I could make her room spotless and while she was busy watching the movie I could take some detail shots of her room. Some people might think it's weird, but I like to photograph each room in our house every once in a while so I can look back and remember when we move to a different place and get older what it looked like. It's a little memento that we can show our kids about living in Rexburg, Idaho Falls, and eventually somewhere far far away from Idaho ;) There were a few people who wanted the tutorials for some of the things that I was working on as well, so this is an easy way for ya'll to find the links.
I also wanted to get some more natural shots of Brynlee just doing her thing and playing in her room. Contrary to popular belief, I do actually take pictures of her in normal clothes not prancing around in fields. However our apartment most of the time doesn't have the best natural lighting so I'm really limited in when I can shoot that without having to get out my flash.
Brynlee's room was truly a labor of love (combined with some serious nesting!). I wanted to make a space that she would actually play in and that I could see myself spending some serious time in there as well. It's probably my favorite room in our apartment. Here are the links for the DIY projects and some of my favorite items.
