Project HurriKane: A Week in the Life of My 9 Month Old

Actually, Kane (AKA Hurricane Wolfe) is nine and a half months old. But having lived through it, I would say nine months and nine and a half months aren’t all that different. The following is our general schedule: wake up, diaper change, play, eat, cry, sleep, repeat : )

Lately, I have been swamped with editing photos for a couple of different shoots and I feel like I’ve neglected taking photos of my favourite little man. Therefore, this next week is devoted to Kane. The timing is perfect because Harrison, my husband, is going to be out of town on business, so this way he can see some photos of Kane while he’s away.

This project also gives me the opportunity to improve my skills with the D700 that I have been using more consistently as of late.  Still working on perfecting my focus. Who am I kidding? I’m still working on perfecting my focus with my beloved D90 which I’ve been shooting with for 2 years!

The D700, along with my 50mm 1:1.4 lens will be travelling with me to all of the activities Kane and I are doing. Ready for a taste of mommyhood Wolfe-style?

Anyways, here are a few photos to kick start Project HurriKane:

This is what we will not be doing this week. I just mounted the Wee Ride Kangaroo Carrier today. Unfortunately, haven’t been able to find a helmet for Kane’s little melon.

Day 7 – Wednesday

Project HurriKane was a lot more work than I expected. The shooting part was fabulous. The editing part was a little tedious because it took over my life every night! I definitely enjoyed it, but now I feel like I need to take a vacation from my computer and, more specifically, Lightroom! But mission accomplished, Harrison was able to see new photos of Kane while he was away.

I hope you enjoyed viewing a week in the life of Kane. The final photo is a flashback to where we were nine months ago.

I love you to the moon and back.
