Sometimes I pick up my camera and just shoot for the joy of shooting. I don’t plan or have idea’s of what I want/need to get. I just go with it. And sometimes, that is when I produce some of my most favorite images.
This week that happened. I picked up my camera to take a few pictures of Tenley, and when she yelled “No!” and ran to her room I just followed her in there and kept shooting. And talked her into loving my camera again (a little silliness and letting her do what she wants always helps).
Her hair is a mess and she has a red slushy stained mouth, but I love it. So much.
These images inspire me. And I felt that rush of satisfaction and joy as I worked… so I had to share. To remember and remind myself of what I love to shoot, and how I love to shoot, and why I love real life images so very much.
Black and white just felt right… but I also included color at the end of this post, because I love them too! (and how else could you fully appreciate the red slushy stained mouth?!)
Thank you for looking. And to all my clients; past, present and future, thank you for allowing me to do what I love. And for trusting me.
