embrace the camera: 3/22/12


here at the anderson crew, on thursdays, we embrace the camera.
today, i'm sharing some of olive and i...
the only way to get sister to look up at the camera, was to hold my camera phone up, so she could see herself...then drop it real fast.  she loves to look at herself.




and then some of just olive because she is way too cute.



{headband c/o: sweet chickadee}

your turn, lovelies!
*if you're new this week, let me know in the comments*

here's the nitty gritty on embrace the camera:
1. take a picture of YOU with your kids, spouse, friends, etc. the point of embrace the camera is to get in front of the camera and to document a bit of yourself.
2. link up your POST, not your blog, that way we can see your embrace post.
3. link back to our blog by a text link or using our button in your post.
4. and lastly, have fun and visit each other!
leave each other lots of love---it's not easy to get in front of the camera---bravo to all of you who join us every week! your family will thank you for it one day :)

  4. Love the photos of you and little Olive--she is just too cute!

    I followed your rules and although my spouse is not in the photo with me and I have no little ones of my own yet--I documented a bit of myself and the incredible weight loss journey I have been on :) Thank you for letting everyone get their story out there, have a great weekend!

  23. Yep, not only do I want my own Olive, I NEED one. Too bad I'm old enough to be her grandma. We do have the same last name though,so it could really work. She's a love.

  32. HI
    I'm new. So happy I found you. That is some serious cuteness. Now I will have a reason to force myself to get out from behind the camera. Thanks for giving me that push.
