I love capturing my children as their natural, innocent selves. This pictures speaks volumes to me, as a photographer and a mother. Telling their story instead of a forced posed shot that usually ends up with somebody in tears. I am always inspired by pictures that tell a story and evoke emotion to its viewer.
Now let me tell you why I think this picture is so awesome and funny:
1. Mr. M loves to ring the door bell, he is asking if he can
2. Ralph is anxiously waiting to see if he will ring the door bell (and yes he will bark even when he is on the outside, dumb dog!)
3. The kids were just in their kiddie pool so their diapers are HUGE
4. Ms L's belly! I.LOVE.IT :)
Also this was taken on a day that I was not in the mood to take a picture and feeling very uninspired (I am committed though since I am doing a 365) I kept my camera with me, and this is literally the last picture I took that day. Now it is one of my very favorites and is hanging in my house as a 30 x 40 canvas!
I love this picture by Misty Garrison because of the wonderful tender moment she was able to capture. I will share what she wrote in her description because her words are beautiful!
"Why I love photography:Because even a mere amateur, wanna-be photographer like myself can get lucky and capture a moment like this. A moment so raw and real. Not a forced pose, but instead my people as they really are.
And while there is probably something I could do to make this a better technical photograph, it moves my soul as it is. I feel blessed that this precious moment between my beloved and my little one will forever be mine.
And yes, I could sit and look at it all day except for the fact that I have the real deal running around with her arms lifted up behind her as her very own makeshift Tinkerbell wings and my Steven nestled on the couch with me in a way that makes it difficult to determine where he ends and I begin. My cup runneth over."
Thank you Misty for sharing. Now, get out and shoot and may you been inspired to seek out a story in whatever you are photographing!
