Sometimes on a photo shoot I am transported to another place and time….I feel something inside me churn and feel renewed, its hard to explain. I guess this is why photographing people excites me as it does. Since I was a young teen this is the way it has been for me. It’s as if there is a little secret inside the frame and I find it…There are so many cliche quotes about “capturing time” and I’m a bit tired of them….but it’s true. To be able to capture a glimpse into someone, forever, well its just incredible to me.  Of course its early, 5 am, I have been editing my eyeballs off and am extremely overwhelmed by the amount of work I need to do the next few weeks~ In any case I am still full of inspiration and shooting away. I just adored my shoot with this perky, light of heart, shiny, bouncing, beautiful girl~ so full of life & spirit that she reminded me a bit of my younger, more carefree self & that life is all you make it. I thank her for the energy she brought to me… I needed it!

Oh~ how I love shooting in the gorgeous  Autumn light….I am becoming more aware of Gods amazing presence in my life, not only by the light he spreads on the earth but by the people he puts in my path, teaching me things about myself, about life on a daily basis…sometimes coming to me out of the blue to gently remind me that I am not alone.  “God winks“…I heard of God winks the other day on CBS this morning…then realized I am winked at constantly. I am thankful for the gift of sight, for my hands that are able to hold my heavy camera and fingers to snap the shutter! I do not take those things for granted. I am inspired by just about everything but mostly by young people with strength and purpose…with a humbleness to match.

 By then end of our shoot this sweet girl was all warmed up…I love the progression of a shoot….we start out slowly, my camera and I, figuring out where to go with the subject and after a few frames its like “auto pilot”. I like that Amelia was on the shy side~ so many great shots, here are just a few I liked a lot.
