The photos in this post inspire me. It's a bit of a departure from my regular clean, clear style... so if you don't like them, please don't tell me as I am extremely sensitive and will turn into a pile of sniffling goo.
These shots speak to me. They inspire me. The make me want to get out there and take a million more.
They have a feel, a mood, a quality that reminds me of why I fell in love with photography in the first place.
When I take shots of my kids, it feels like something I have to mentally prepare for. And I'm so afraid the session will be a failure.
These shots are effortless. They come naturally.
Just the world as I see it; me alone with my camera. It's pure enjoyment.
Not trying to make anyone smile or laugh or look natural.
While looking through these pictures, I realized I don't give myself enough time to go out and shoot just for me. From an hour in the Old Market, I have 256 pictures that are keepers. Most of the shots turned out exactly the way I envisioned them in my head. That's because I was doing what I love.
Not to worry friends (and mom), I'm not abandoning my clean style. :-) I'm not giving up trying to get better shots of my kids. This is something I need to do every once in awhile to keep the creative juices flowing. Photos just for me.
I couldn't decide on a realistic number of shots to share - LOL! and I didn't want to overwhelm you. More to come this week. Happy Monday! ♥
