One Year of Black and White Wednesdays

January 12, 2011

Reagan CLOSE UP BW3 BLOG IT
Happy One Year of Black and White Wednesdays!

Looking over her shoulder in the chair BW BLOG IT
Can you believe we have all been doing this for 52 weeks?

WOW, that went by so quickly!

I thought I would throw in the towel long ago, but because of your weekly participation and photo inspiration, I have been able to keep it going!!

Reagan in the bedroom chair2 BLOG IT
There have been many Tuesday evenings that I have had to scramble to get a post up by midnight and hit publish with only seconds to spare. I had one little mishap while in China, but who can blame a girl with a 12 hour time difference and a new baby?

Standing in the chair color BLOG IT
I thought about changing things up for this year and possibly doing a theme each month or adding some kind of new twist . . . .

Crawling Off the Chair BLOG IT
But, I really like the simplicity of this little link party and I think it is best to keep doing what we have been doing.

Thanks for a GREAT year of black and white memories!

Hope that you all will continue to join me each week in 2011!

BTW, Remember that wall I wanted to complete in our home?

Well, I had good intentions. I have made a little progress with a few new pictures making their appearance up there, but I still have piles of prints waiting to be framed and hung.

Maybe by the end of 2011?
2010 was kind of a busy year for us. Besides, I would have had to do a lot of rearranging and changing to add little Miss Reagan up there on the wall.

Happy 1 year! And beautiful pics of Reagan!

Wanda said...

Wow....happy one year of black and white Wednesdays!! Has it really been that long? - it is kind of amazing we can keep pumping them out. You're right - it's all that great inspiration and comradeship. I know I haven't miss one (do I get the prize?) hehe

These are such gorgeous shots of Reagan - I just love them. Can't believe how fast she is changing - what a beauty!

Loved our telephone chat today. After I shared the "stuff" that was going on with my girls with you, I decided to post about that tonight. Bared my soul a bit.

Have a great week.
Love you!!

Happy one year of Black and White Wednesday!!! I have LOVED the last 52 weeks (and so has my family) and I am so glad you've done this for ALL of us! It is such an inspiration to me and has pushed me to work harder at my love of photography! Thank you Lisa for your continued dedication and inspiration!!

I'm loving your pics this week...your Reagan is just a beauty! Happy Wednesday to you and yours!

Candace said...

Oh I LOVE these!!! Your baby is beautiful! Would love to see a post of how you display all your gorgeous photos - you have so many good ones - how do you choose? All of mine are just sitting on the PC - would love some tips and ideas and inspiration from you on how to display tastefully! Thank you, Wendy

Mia_h_n said...

Wow, Lisa! That first picture is amazing!!! I usually love all of your pictures, but this one took my breath away. I'm amazed at your ability to capture these perfect moments and angles. You can't exactly tell a baby to pose!

And congrats on 1 year. Althoug I don't participate I always enjoy the shots. I'm glad you're keeping it going.

Alyson and Ford said...

Congrats! It has been a fun time to plan the Black and White post; I have not participated every week but it does help push me to plan some posts for each week. Sometimes blogging (or electronic family photo album as I use it for) gets a little tedious. But all good! Love it and your gorgeous photos!

XxOo!

Kimberly said...

I just found this blog.
I could not find a button to put on my blog. leave me a note to where I can find it, so I can add it to my blog.

(Awesome pictures and a beautiful family!)

Aleasing said...

What a way to post a milestone!!
These pictures of Reagan are spectacular ^_^

That "little lady" is adjusting very nicely to being photographed!!

Thanks for sharing the beauty of that precious child!!!

Love Letters To China said...

Happy One Year Anniversary Lisa!!! Wow has that year flown by. I've really enjoyed posting every Wednesday. You've made me push myself to get out there and take more photos, even when I had no desire. I too have not hung one photo on my wall. I have the frames sitting in my closet waiting. I just have such a hard time deciding which one to print. I might just go out and buy some more frames so I can fit them all on the wall.

Reagan is soooooo cute in these pics. She really is getting so big....and that smile of her's... it's precious.

Happy Wednesday!!!

Hugs,
Grace

absolutely gorgeous shots

Our Beaten Path said...

Happy One Year anniversary on the B & W Wednesday! I'm happy to be joining my first time on such a grand occasion!

Steffie B. said...

Has it really been a year? Wow....it sure does not seem like it. Winter months are so hard for me and the lens! I need to try and get my gear out more!

Once you fill your wall, you need to show us what you have created. Or maybe even how it is progressing. I would love to see it.

Have a great rest of the week.

Steffie

Coffee Break Mama said...

A year, wow! I love B&W and it reminds me to edit some photos in that way, which often times makes them so much better. Thanks for hosting - I love it just the way it is.

And yes, you've had a busy year - I'll look forward to seeing the wall whenever it is finished!

Jodee Leader said...

Happy one year anniversary! Black and white pictures are my favorite! Love these pictures of Reagan!

I seriously cannot believe it's been a year! It's funny you should mention that wall because I was going to ask about it ; )

Fliss and Mike Adventures said...

Ciao Bella :)
I see that you are training her young with the camera... Shauna picked up my XSi the other day and put it to her eye - not look through the screen at the back like the smaller camera... I was so incredibly proud... I am dying to buy her a Fisher Price Camera for her 2nd birthday... start her off with the simple camera... lol...

Maddy said...

I love this set of photos of the little princess :) And congrats on a full year of B&W Wednesdays!! I love joining in, whenever I can!

Ashley Sisk said...

You have such a beautiful baby there! And congrats on hitting the one year mark. I always think it's a huge accomplishment to reach one year on anything...it shows commitment. And I love that you're keeping it theme free...I love the simplicity of loading any of my black and white shots from that week.

Freckles & Dimples Photography said...

happy one year! I remember our lunch at the photo walk when you said you were thinking of taking a break...I believed I had a knee jerk reaction of "No, you cant do that!!!"
You have one adorable baby :)

darling photos! Love the last couple of months since I found your blog. Congrats!

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

I can't thank you enough for hosting this little weekly "get together". Having all these gorgeous photos taken by some of the most inspiring mom bloggers out there- has been life changing for me. I am a complete beginner but each week I view photos that encourage me to learn everything I can and try to improve with each click. I have learned to look for the beauty in the every day things & take a moment to remember them by the way of the lens.

Rosie said...

Such wonderful captures! Congratulations on the 1 year for me, too! This is really amazing!

Robin said...

WOW one year!!!! Love the pictures!!!! Also love Black and White Wednesday!!!



Blessings,
Robin

So glad to have found your blog so many weeks ago! Happy birthday to Black and White Wednesdays. I still love linking and sharing with my fellow blogphotogs.

Reagan is a stunning little lady and she really does look to have completely adapted into the princess mode (I know, she's the empress). So happy for your blessing.

Marci said...

Great props that you have for these adorable pictures! That's awesome that you have been running black and white wednesday for a year..thanks for inspiring so many of us! :)

I love these pictures, but even more I love seeing that Reagan's getting a bit of baby fat:)...oh how healthy she is:) Amazing how much she's grown in the last few months.

Amandalynn said...

Congrats Lisa! I'm so happy that 2010 brought you so many amazing gifts. It was a stroke of luck that I came across your blog with around the time B&W Wednesday started, and even though I haven't had the time to participate in every single one this last year I have enjoyed every single moment of following your journey. Cheers! Here's to another beautiful and inspiring 52 weeks and beyond.

Digital Paradise said...

Hugs and much love!!!
