Happy first day of spring! How about some snow photos?? 😀
What a sweet surprise it is for little kiddos to unexpectedly wake up to snow. Not just the dusting we’d been getting, but a full on dumping! This happened a few weeks ago, totally to all of our surprise (though the weatherman probably was forecasting it!). Cooper woke early and was outside in it before the sun even came up and once his brothers woke we put our warm clothes on and joined him. You all know I don’t love the snow, but more and more that’s just because it makes driving tricky. My appreciation for it has grown as I’ve seen it through my boys’ eyes and since I didn’t have to drive anywhere and I already knew Matt had gotten to work safely, I was ready to embrace the snow on this day. Camera in hand, and dressed as warm as I could get, I ventured out into it and savored how incredibly refreshing a morning in the snow can be.
After that happened, we took a walk up to the clear-cut above our house. I’d never been up there after a heavy snow and the boys were excited I was finally feeling up to venturing up there.
One got right into being a snow-animal; burrowing and crawling all over the place.
100% pure delight, I tell you. I couldn’t have pinpointed a time in recent months when I’d been so happy to be outside, watching the boys play. ♥
This guy, by the way, is so hysterical in the snow. I think with all that fur, he’s finally comfortable when the temperatures dip to this degree. He comes a live. Unless the camera’s pointed at him, apparently. Then he becomes quite the poser.
But, not without a few more tackles.
Believe it or not, they both came up smiling. We all came in the house smiling. It was such a sweet time outside in the snow, and I’m so thankful I felt the draw to bring my camera because I look at these photos and the same refreshing feeling that hit me from the snowy air hits me all over again. ♥
I hope you have a wonderful week, friends! Also, if you plan on shooting out in the snow (those of you on the East Coast who I know are buried in it!) try out spot metering off of the snow to +2. I did that throughout the morning, each time the light changed and that really simplified keeping my exposure the same. 🙂
