I am a SAHM and I home educate my nine children. Yes, you read that right, I have nine children!! :) Actually one is now graduated and will be getting married this coming July ( I am so excited about this!) My days are full of the seemingly mundane. The same thing every day, get up, get ready for the day, eat breakfast, do chores, start school by 9 am. I usually get everyone started and then I sit down at the computer to work on editing for a bit. One of my littles, Esther always comes over to me and cuddles at my feet or just needs to be near me in some way while I am there. My desk is set up near a large window at the moment and so I noticed this glorious light coming through and I just had to capture her in it. As I was going through the images, I realized I was just capturing the little things, things she does everyday and I didn't have her dressed up all frilly and I wasn't trying to pose her and what made these images work was..... you guessed it LIGHT! It's really a no brainer right? If you have been reading anything at all about photography, you know that all you really need is beautiful light and learning a little about composition. You can even start learning these things and using your i-phone if that is all you have right now. I absolutely love the website http://www.clickinmoms.com and highly encourage you to join them if you have any interest in photography at all. I am providing the link to a wonderful little article about light and how to find it to improve your images. http://www.clickinmoms.com/blog/creativity-exercise-4-exercises-to-help-you-find-the-light/
It took me about 5-10 minutes to capture these images. I just followed along and watched her play in this beautiful light and captured her doing what she does everyday.
