2015 12-Month Photo Project || February

Here is the second installment of this year’s photo project! I had a pretty busy, yet mostly uneventful, February. It all happened so quickly, I’m not sure I can believe March is but a few days away. πŸ˜€

Photo #1
Title: Pizza Pie

The BF has been in the kitchen more often since we subscribed to the occasional Plated meal delivery shipment. Here he is preparing the dough for a white pizza with Sriracha buffalo chicken and yogurt ranch sauce. It was so good!

Title: Homemade with Love

When the BF and I first started dating, he bought me chocolates and flowers for Valentine’s Day. It took a few years, but I finally told him I don’t really like eating chocolates (I prefer cake over candy) and that he didn’t need to spend money on flowers either. All I want for Valentine’s Day is a card with a long, handwritten message. And food. Always food. πŸ˜› This year I decided to bake cookies for him since I had the day off and wanted to do something special. I used Jhuls’ recipe from her site, The Not So Creative Cook, and you can find the recipe here. The BF loved them and ate two before we headed out to dinner. ❀

I may or may not have eaten a cookie or two during this photo session. πŸ˜‰

Title: Soft Pink

My mom and dad are so sweet. They both gave me flowers for Valentine’s Day; my mom a flower basket and my father a vase of roses. They both received cards from their favorite granddog, Bailey. He is so thoughtful. πŸ˜€


And now I am off to pack for a weekend getaway in Monterey. We are months overdue for a mini vacay! Hopefully I will get some pretty pictures for next month’s post!


  1. Such gorgeous photos Patty, and those cookies look like heaven on a plate πŸ™‚ I like the blurry look in some of your background photos. I’m just learning to do that. The emphasis is on the subject, and everything else is blurred, giving the subject grand attention. I learned that the f.stop should be 3.5 or lower? But I’m having trouble angling my camera so I can get it all in. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    • Hi Loretta! Which lens are you shooting with? Shooting at a low f-stop will definitely give you a blurred out background. It also helps if you are closer to the subject and have a decent amount of space between the subject and the background. If you can’t fit your scene in the frame, just take a few steps back! I hope this helps. Please feel free to ask any other questions you may have! 😊

  2. Ooh those cookies look so good! And so pretty! Very sweet of your parents to give you flowers — it sounds like you have a great relationship with them. Have a great time in Monterey — can’t wait to see the pictures!

Please tell me what you think!
