izzy at the playground! | fall photography ft. a doodle challenge

I’m so happy you’re here! How do you like that doodle intro? I love how it turned out! ❤

Well, I intended to get this post up earlier in the day. However, life happened, so I went and did the other things I needed and wanted to do first! Now I can share this post with you 😀

This past weekend, my family and I all went to some new playgrounds! My little sisters (Elizabeth and Izzy) and my younger brother (Samuel) had a great time. Since I’m too old to play at playgrounds now 😉 I take the opportunity to have an outdoor photoshoot! Sometimes I’ll focus on the sky and trees, but on Sunday, I took some pictures following Izzy around. ❤

At the end of this post, I’m also including a doodle challenge! You’ll see what that is in a minute 😀 For now, let’s see cute little Izzy!

She’s so prettyyyy! I love her in that jellyfish shirt ❤ She’s smiling like that in the picture above because she was proud of herself for going down the slide! For a while, she’s been nervous about sliding too fast and swinging too high, but every time we go to a playground, she faces her fears a little bit as she’s comfortable enough to. I’m so happy she enjoyed sliding!

What a sweetling!!! hehe

She kept running along in front of me, so to get pictures of her face, I had to rush ahead and take some pics before she was off again!

This was another slide she had fun sliding down! It was such a pretty day. ❤ In the shade it was comfortable, but in the sun it got toasty haha

Look at her hair!! It was slowly coming out of the little ponytail our mom did for her, but that made it even cuter! ❤

Okay! Now it’s time for…

a doodle challenge!

When I was telling my mom recently about sharing more doodles on my blog, she had this awesome idea! She challenged me to look at one of the pictures from a photo session and recreate it as a doodle! So, I took a pic of me and Izzy at the playground and turned it into a doodle! Let’s see how it turned out!

Here’s the original picture:

And here’s the doodle!:

This was a seriously fun challenge! It took me maybe thirty minutes to do. I had the reference photo up on my phone, then I doodled this and colored it in on an index card. I’m very happy with how it turned out! I’ve slowly been practicing this kind of drawing over the years (scaling down an image or drawing and recreating it), but this was my first time taking a picture of real people and making it a drawing!

Here they are side by side! What do you think?

Did you enjoy seeing this photoshoot? How do you think the doodle challenge turned out? (You can be honest haha!) Let’s chat in the comments!
