WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: FAMILY

Image

When seeing the weekly photo challenge, I immediately went looking for a family photo. I take pictures on a weekly basis, journaling my life and the lives of my loved ones with pictures. I would love to see old photos of my parents, grandparents, etc. but I know that I never, ever will. Because of this, and knowing how important it is to be able to look back and actually see where your family came from, I take shot after shot of every event. I do this so that one day, my children can actually look back at the memories we created and pass them on to their children.

The photo above was taken when we all went to see a Disney movie with my granddaughter. As usual, I’m behind the camera but pictured are my children, granddaughter and my mother. We normally run on different schedules, and rarely all go to the movies, and a Disney movie? Nah, that does not happen, but for our little one, we changed it all just to be there and we had a great time!

Thank you for stopping by and viewing my photo.

Peace and Love,

Weekly Photo Challenge – JOY

JOY

When you love photography, you tend to see the world through your camera lens. On a recent photo shoot for a young lady, who I’ve had the pleasure of knowing since she was 8 years old, I was able to capture this photo. It was a few days before her Sweet 16, and her mother asked if I would take some pictures of her to later have blown up for the party. Of course I said yes, I love this kid.

The day of the shoot, things began normally. Stand here, sit there, raise your chin, smile more…..you get the picture (no pun intended). After a while, I chose to go outside and do things as I typically do….my way with no rhyme or reason. I photographed her as she is, beautiful, innocent, kind, and a free spirit. She was loosening up and having fun at that point and I said to her “Just let go.” Β With that said, she did, I snapped the picture, and here I give you “JOY” as I see it.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog.

Peace and Love,

Lisa
