Well hello there! Yep, it's me again. Back from a summer of education, planning and work. (Oh, and a little camping too). I hope that you have had a great summer as well!
But now it's time to get back to work. I can't wait to share more of my photography with you. I am also going to be putting together special portrait sessions that I will let you know about. This is something that will be new for me but I am excited about the creative possibilities. I hope it will be fun for you too!
As you know, the Summer Olympics happened this year. It's really just incredible what we can train our bodies to do. I can't even imagine the strength and focus it took for those athletes to reach such a pinnacle. I was in awe!
There was also some beautiful photography that came out of those events. I was mesmerized by the shots these amazing photographers got. Just beautiful! Cynthia wrote a lovely piece about one of them below.
So it got me to wonder. What if chasing three year olds on a beach at 10 AM could ever count as an Olympic Sport? Well? Ok...maybe not. But if ever I felt like I was in an endurance competition it was then. Three year olds on a beach can not be tamed if they are the only one in the portraits. There is just too much distraction. So...I approached this session a little differently. I just let her be free and tried to keep up with her as best I could. She took some suggestions like jumping off the fence (which she loved) and in return she gave me glorious opportunities to capture her freedom.
"Learning to Fly" is above and "Three and Free" is below. I'll be sharing more of these images in the future. This baby was fabulous!
Sometimes I do miss it when my kids were that age. They were fun,cute and full of energy! But then I remember the energy it took and I become grateful that I just have a cat.
