It was in February that I moseyed on over to my dear friend Molly's house to take some candid shots of her little clan in the late afternoon hours. Our winter has been dark and misty, so this sparkling sunny day was a treat for us all.
With my technical skills in this photo session, I a was a bit disappointed. I forget to change out my ISO when we went outside, so the sharpness and quality was compromised. I was annoyed by my mistake. It took me over a month to edit through the photos because I knew I didn't do my best work and I think I subconsciously wanted to give up on the photo shoot.
I stuck with it. I didn't really want to give up on those photos and I most certainly, didn't want to let Molly down. I am so glad I didn't. Time and love heals. No, my work isn't anything spectacular, but this family and their love, oh my goodness, they are! These four people are like family to me. I get teary eyed watching the slideshow because the love they share is so easy to capture. It's right there -- just waiting!!
And yes, if you follow Joy Prouty's blog, I sure did copy her brilliance in the song choice for the slideshow. I hope she doesn't mind. Imitation is a form a flattery, right? Does this adage apply to blogging and photography. I hope so. I mean, can any other family photo documentary ever not be done to "The Only Walls For Me"?
Thank sweet family for allowing me into your home, for being real, vulnerable, and beautiful. I love you!
