I Started A Joke

Sometimes the blurry, off-focused, and unexpected moments in life have the most heart and are the most special.

We had a photo session recently for a contest coming up that I can't wait to tell you all about, and later the amazing photographer sent me this note-

"After hearing you talk about her spirit (which by the way was the sweetest thing I may have ever heard) - this photo just has a different meaning. I caught her in an in between moment of a laugh and a look. She has her eyes closed, and she's so happy. She looks like she telling a funny story to us, and it's the funniest thing she's ever heard.

Often times I'll end up with shots like this from a session. Ones that don't make the cut, but ones that I'll still just email to the parents. (Like when a boy pulls his pants off in the middle of the session and comes charging at me full force! Those don't make the session gallery, but how can you toss memories like that! LOL)

Yes, she has her eyes half closed. Yes, the focus is a bit off because I think she was discovering that the basket could rock. But, I couldn't toss this one. I just love it!

I hope you do, too."

  1. She's beautiful, Steph. I love that the photographer captured a moment that's not usually frameworthy, but is special in its own way. I can't wait to see more photos!

  9. That's priceless. Photos like that are the absolute best. I could fill a whole book full of them, and they would almost mean more than the "perfect" shots that we also treasure. Love it!

  18. You are so lucky to have such fabulous people photographing your family all the time. The one of you and Ivy up there on the left corner of your page is just beautiful.

    I hadn't noticed before how much she looks like Gray. But with those pictures of him just above this one it's easy to see the resemblance in their eyes. So cute!
