3 Girls and A Camera

I had the awesome privilege of adventuring with three incredible ladies this Saturday to capture some snapshots of friendship at its finest!

Ellie, Shannon, and Meghan were not only great models for my photo practice...but truly brought so much joy to my heart as I caught precious moments and exchanges between these three best friends! It was beautiful to see laughter, joy, and love between these girls!

Thank you to you, ladies, for letting me in on a moment in your world as we tromped through forests and orchards!

"My friends remind me, by their very steadfastness, that truth, goodness, and beauty exist in the world, and that no matter what, there are and always will be, people loving people through thick and thin."

Snap Happy!


I CAN NOT put my camera down!

Some might say that it has become like a really noticeable third arm or appendage that no one really knows how to respond to (like the drug dealers in the park yesterday who realized, at the same time as me, that I had caught them candidly in the act while I was snapping pictures Note to not go to the park at sunset alone.)

Not only am I in love with my camera, but I have found that I am even more in love with capturing those moments in between the "picture perfect" moments.
You know what I'm talking about?
Those moments where the awkward laughing begins or the look of true love happens in a glimpse?

Those moments.
There is something so priceless about being able to see that in its raw and beautiful form.

All that to say, I have A LOT of learnin' to do! There is so much to be learned not just in the technical, but in the art of grasping that one fleeting and incomparable moment. It is like the kiss at the end of Breakfast at Tiffany's. You can't make up greatness like that. You just have to capture it.

So here are a few of the pictures that I have been taking.
I wanted to share them just to say...
I love moments like these.
