Hey there, I'm hoping you have had a great start to the week as you're reading this. Over the weekend, I ended up cleaning up my computer and looking through old photographs, which is the fun part. I'm amazed at how fast the time flies and here is a sweet photo of one of my lovely nieces taken a few years ago.
Hey all, (wow) its been a short while since I've posted and summer has been filled with fun days at the beach as well as hectic days of preparation in order to sell our home and start on new adventures. We are excited but nervous for the path that God will lead us to, and I'm grateful for moments like this to be able to work on my art and photography. The above photograph is of one of my many beautiful nieces. Wishing everyone a fun summer ending and filled with days of hope during times of uncertainty.
This was a photograph that was part of a series that I took of my daughter in order to experiment with the light shining through our living room window. I love the quality of these images; check out another image here.

This is an archived image from a series of a fun photo shoot I took of my daughter for my daily photo project, you can view the image that I chose for my Project 365 here. She's on the couch and the only source of natural light was from our window (left). At first, she was uninterested in me taking pictures, then her attention was given to the window, and all of a sudden she started laughing. I'm so glad I caught this moment.

This photo was taken a year ago and it makes me want to join in on the play set fun with this little guy, who happens to be my nephew.

I wouldn't be able to resist the fun. Have a playful day folks!

I love the range in this photograph of my little guy. These type of shots make me feel like I am an observer of the moment, not a photographer but an observer, waiting to see a moment that is worth capturing. When my son ran freely on this long stretch of path, unsure of what he was running to, observing his surrounding and taking everything in that was curious to him, I observed but didn't take a photograph. It was until he stopped and looked at whatever caught his attention that propelled me to lift up my camera and snap. And the thought in my head was to capture "curiosity." The challenge for me was how I would capture it in a photograph? The above picture is the result.
