I wanted to capture smoke, not really create anything but just work on the skill of capturing smoke. Capturing smoke requires really good settings, I played around with mine until I finally got it. I did not want any part of my smoke blurry, I really wanted it sharp. T his is so tough to photograph. This one was my favorite shape. Something to keep working on.
Took a ton of these over the week. I love this one the most. I love the story it tells right now. He wanted to go play with the neighbors so much, it's hard for a 3 year old to understand all of this. Why why does mom not let me play next door? BTW. this might be my new favorite light.
This one was a little tough for me, because I love my leading lines. I can find lines everywhere, but I have never noticed the circles. But, as I shot several images for this post, I found circles are everywhere as well.
I love those days where I get to create or capture something from my mind. We have in the house for so many days now. I have to give my boys so much credit, because they are handling it so well. Not everyday is perfect, but overall they are doing well. I am in this mood of creating magical portraits for them. I made this for my little book worm.

I am not really a "rule" follower, so this is really hard for me. I like to frame my portraits the same way we read, from left to right. Sometimes they follow the rule of thirds, other times they don't. I am pulling a favorite shot from the past for this one. I adore this image. I had this shot in my head since mom booked. I am always so grateful for my clients that let my vision come alive.
Gosh, today HOPE means so much to me, my husband, my kids, my neighbors, and everyone else. I love the meaning of hope and butterflies. I wanted to capture a sign of Hope in my little one's face.... the hope he has to play with his friends again. The hope to go to the playground, the hope to play his sports. Just a little magic to create that light he still has inside.
I am my biggest critique. Every shot I take I can examine and look to see how I can do better. Sometimes it is hard because I am so caught in the moment while I work. I want to capture what I see or what it is my head. Then I get home and see where I could have paused and done better. Moving forward I want to remind myself to pause and take my time to take that great shot.
There is an amazing bond between these two. Yes, they have their days, they argue, they push each other's buttons. But if you can stop and capture the little moments they share, and listen to the conversations had.... you will see an amazing bond and friendship that is so pure. And perhaps they teach us what friendship is.... it is everlasting, it does not matter if you don't see eye to eye every day. What matters is the love for each other.
