Super Powers

Using Design House Digital Paper
A little experimentation

A few days ago I was having a conversation with my niece Miss M, I asked if I could help bake cookies.  She told me no, that her mom was doing it, I said that was fine, I'd just supervise.  She asked what super power you needed to supervise.  I thought was adorable, so Saturday when she had her mask and cape on I asked if she'd do a photo shoot for me.


We resorted to a bit of bribery to get her going, but pretty soon the entire household was involved.  "Work it baby"  "Give me fierce."  "Show us some attitude."  She got so into it that we ended up staging several more photo shoots over the weekend, she even worked as a photo assistant for one set of photos.  I've now gone from someone who hadn't taken more than 50 photos in several months, to someone who took at least 4 times that in two days.  Feels good to have the mojo back!

Have you ever wanted a superpower?  I wish I could fly (and thus avoid airports and all of their delays.)  To go along with the superhero theme - one of my favorite superhero songs:

3 Doors Down - Kryptonite
Pin It

I bet Miss M, and her mom will love having all the great pictures that you are taking of the kids...How fun!

Ah!! So, so cute! :)

I think if I could have any superpower, it would HAVE to be...oh no. I forgot the word. It's a nerd word....where you can transmit yourself to places in a single second. You know what I'm sayin'. :) What with my far-flung friends, I'd love to be able to pop by for dinner or hit a movie in Washington, than be home in a flash to snuggle up in bed. :)

Happy to hear you've found your mojo! :)

oh she is just adorable and it really sounds like all of you enjoyed the "shoot"...superpowers?? well I am trying to narrow it down..I need so many!! how about a sense of direction when driving?!

Love the little scrapbooky background on the photos. How fun!

When I was a kid, I dreamed of having one of those little watches where I could freeze time, like in some cheesy TV movie I saw. I just wanted to be able to freeze time so I could eat whatever I wanted. That would NOT have been a good idea!

Miss M's facial expressions are so darling inspite of her trying to look otherwise. The photo shoot sounds like fun; I hope to do that with Granddaughter someday. As far as a Superpower...I've always wanted to just be able to transport myself somewhere else instantly. Want to visit my brother: poof....she's there....Take care.

i think your niece's superpower is being supercute. as for me, it's a toss up between flying and invisibility.

Your niece is a bundle full of awesomeness. I think I'd want telekinesis. Handy for tidying up around the house, a la Mary Poppins.

Jamie, what a great combination for fun - superpowered, adorable Miss M + camera = magic and mojo! Glad your house is filled with such happiness.
As to superpowers, I'm greedy. I'd like to time travel, read minds, never sleep, and yes, to flying with my own wings! Do you know anyone that can grant me these wishes?
