Hello, dear ShuGar Loves! I hope you had a beautiful Father’s Day weekend. Mr. ShuGar and I spent a lovely time with our family and meeting up with friends. Everything is so much more fun with little Camdie with us.

Some of you may remember that back in the day pre-Camden I blogged about my photography journey and how I was taking a class to try to learn how to take proper photos. Well, since our little ShuGar Boy has been here, I haven’t really had the time to practice f stops, shutter speed, and ISOs, but it doesn’t mean I still don’t dream about it. In fact, I sometimes wonder how I would ever manage to take a real photo of Camden in manual mode when he is so figgidity and hard to get to stay still for that special “say cheese” moment. For now, the automatic setting on my Android will beyond suffice.

Nevertheless, I still very much love fantasizing about photography and the beauty of capturing that one glorious, unique photo using the right camera settings. Here are some black and white photos I’ve been mesmerized by. Black and white photography adds a certain je ne sais quoi to any photo, wouldn’t you agree?

Do any of these black and white pictures strike your fancy? What comes to mind when you see black and white photography?

Happy Friday, friends! This week was filled to the brim with activities. I’m happy the weekend is finally here, although we have a bunch of activities to do as well. Most importantly, we are taking our very first baby class. Woohoo! I can’t wait to get schooled on all things baby. I am ready. I find that the more I read or learn about baby, the less I feel stressed. It’s the unknown that scares me. I’ll share more for next week’s Mommy’s Corner.

A Week in the Life: Week 2

A Week in the Life is a photo inspiration series to document every day moments in my ShuGar life.  

Hello, ShuGar Loves! Can I get a woot-woot because it’s Friday?! It’s about time. This is officially my last day of work before Winter break. (I’m doing cartwheels in my mind). Besides being excited for Christmas, Mr. ShuGar and I are going on a baby moon road trip to Big Sur and Carmel.  We’ll be taking parts of Pacific Coast Highway to enjoy the California Coast. I’ve always wanted to go to Big Sur and Carmel and now I will finally get the chance! During my vacation, I will not be blogging since this little writer needs some time off to live life so to then write about it. You can follow our baby moon adventures via my instagram. Don’t worry; I’ll be back after the New Year!

I hope you enjoyed Week One of A Week in the Life. Lots has happened this week so let’s jump right into the photos!
